I know it’s been a while since my last post and I apologize for that. SHAME ON ME!! Bad J.L….okay now that we’ve got the scolding out of the way, let’s get to the heart of this post.
THE JUST-US LEAGUE ARE PUBLISHING ANOTHER ANTHOLOGY!! THE PROOFS FOR THE FINAL COVER HAVE ARRIVED AND HERE’S A SNEAK PEAK!
I would like to thank Louis Rakovich of Indigo Forest Designs for his amazing work and continued professionalism. He’s a delight to work with and his results are astounding. We hope to keep working with him in the future.
Here’s the back cover blurb for your reading pleasure.
What is the difference between a hero and a villain?
A hero should always use their power for good: a detective devotes his life to chasing gifted villains; a girl uses her frost powers to rescue her father; a weary sidekick faces her childhood nemesis; and a young man must protect his loved ones against a tyrannical authority.
But having unique gifts means facing tough decisions: a doctor must choose between saving his reputation or his patient; a young woman saves a drowning man and finds herself in danger as a result; a student discovers the consequences of choice; and a wannabe hero takes on a supervillain hoping she’ll be invited to the hero’s league.
And the line between good and evil is oftentimes blurred: a self-made hero crosses that line to save the world; a lovesick henchman blindly follows his master’s orders; a mentor attempts to prevent a pupil from being drawn to villainy; a superpowered military team questions their orders despite the inevitable consequences.
Follow these men and women as they set out to save themselves, and the world, from the great evils around them.
Are you as excited to see this in print as I am? Personally, I believe our storytelling voices have only gotten better since the first JL Anthology, From the Stories of Old: A Recollection of Fairytale Retellings was published.
With that in mind, I think the improvement is obvious and as you read this, you’ll see it too. I would have to say that this Anthology has been my favorite one to date.
Superheroes and their stories just have a way of sweeping you into another reality that’s so easy to believe, you might think that you’re actually there.
