Many authors identify with their heroes. In my case, my ‘hero’ is an actual superhero. He’s also more villainous than his nemesis.

The Lovesick Series, made up of Lovesick Gods and the new release Lovesick Titans, has two equal protagonists – Danny Grant, who is secretl...

I stumbled up this original post a few weeks ago and decided almost immediately that I would take the challenge up myself and do it for the month of July (since there are 31 prompts and July has 31 days).
