Cover Reveal: Between Heroes and Villains: A Superpower Anthology

Rowanwood is excited to announce our latest release, an anthology of superpower stories! This anthology will be available on June 17th, 2017, and features stories from twelve talented authors. Each story will be accompanied by a black-and-white digital illustration created by our own resident illustrator, Heidi Hayden.

Today, we’re revealing the anthology’s cover:

Our cover designer is the wonderful Louis Rakovich of Indigo Forest Designs, who once again has captured the essence of our anthology in his beautiful graphic design.

The blurb for the anthology is:

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.
