Polar Opposites author Kai Strand Wants to Know: Hero or Villain?

Today I'm handing the blog over to my friend and author, Kai Strand, for some interesting speculation on superheroes. Take it away Kai:

As we progress through life, we are forced to ask ourselves some deep ‘meaning of life’ type questions. Today, I’m posing such a question to you.

Hero or Villain?

Polar Opposites: Super Villain Academy, Book 2 coming June 2014

The supers are balanced. All’s well in the super world. Right? When dogs drag Oceanus away, Jeff learns the supers are so balanced, they no longer care to get involved. The only one who seems to care is Oci’s ex-villain, ex-boyfriend, Set.

About the author:

When her children were young and the electricity winked out, Kai Strand gathered her family around the fireplace and they told stories, one sentence at a time. Her boys were rather fond of the ending, “And then everybody died. The end.” Now an award winning children’s author, Kai crafts fiction for kids and teens to provide an escape hatch from their reality. With a selection of novels for young adult and middle grade readers and short stories for the younger ones, Kai entertains children of all ages, and their adults.

  1. Thank you so much Stewart, for letting me ask your readers those tough questions! Don't forget to hop over to my website and answer yourself!

    1. Sorry about spelling your name wrong! How rude of me. And strange - since I know how to spell your name.

  2. The interview looked interesting. The boy smiled. :) Something is wrong with my computer though. I never can hear the sound on the videos. I need to find out why, cause I turned the sound up to high. Anyway, enjoyed what I saw.

    1. Lol, Thanks for trying to watch, Beverly. Be sure to hop over to my website and fill out the survey on the Weigh-In tab. I'd love to know if you'd be a Hero or a Villain! :)

  3. I love the video idea. Nicely done, Kai!

    1. Thanks, Heather. Though I didn't become an expert videographer by any means, I learned a lot and it sure made me step outside my comfort zone.
