Interesting Questions: How do you define a hero? // How do you define a villain?
I’ll mention my personal thoughts, but I would like for you to consider what it means to you.
A HERO: Is selfless in their endeavors and considers the well-being of others above their own. If they can help someone right their wrongs–they will do just that.
A VILLAIN: They are self-centered. They are, ultimately, a destructive force that is incapable of empathy. They believe by doing the wrong thing, they are making the right decision.
I believe these definitions are well-represented in the message that follows and thank you for taking the time to read this.
Today is a day that calls for a celebration!
The first question you may ask is…WHY?
Last week, I mentioned that the Just-Us League were publishing another anthology. Well, the moment of truth is here, and the ebook and paperback copies are now available on Amazon.com!
The experience was just as thrilling, if not more so than the last anthology and I look forward to participating in more books later on.
But that’s not all!!
To celebrate the release of the second JL Anthology, JL writers are hosting an exciting giveaway! Win our Ebook bundle, including copies of both anthologies, along with four other interesting reads, plus a beautiful leather journal.
Between Heroes and Villains
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.
