Love mythology? .99 books? Bacon?

What do the gods do when they're bored? Because they're always bored, and humans are the perfect players in their games.

Aphrodite owns love; she hasn’t lost a competition on her turf in over three millennia. Apollo is on a mission to win. He’s counting on it to finally get the one woman he’s never been able to have. The two gods will choose their human players, and if Dita can’t get them together before the clock runs out, Apollo will get his way. And Dita couldn’t have that.

Lex and Dean are perfect for each other, they just don't know it yet. Dean is a perpetual bachelor, and a brooding, beautiful rock star. Lex is always with a man, but she'll never fully give herself up. Dita has her work cut out for her, but if she can't make it work, no one can.

The gods have their own drama. Apollo killed Dita's mortal love - they've got beef that's been dragging on for thousands of years. Ares, the douchebag, is forever trying to pick a fight, and trying to get Dita into bed. And Persephone, Dita's best friend, is the one person who Dita shares everything with.

I’ve been a lot of things up to this point in my life – a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. I’ve also been a mom – I have three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. I’ve been a wife – even though I’m certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. I’m also super, duper fun at a party, especially if I’ve been drinking whiskey. Also, my favorite word starts with f, ends with k, and there a uc in there.

I am addicted to music. I have a serious problem. I have a massive playlist on Spotify for the book, which you can subscribe to here. There are points in the book that I hear some of these songs playing. If you love music too, I think you’ll enjoy it.

I started writing because I’m a complete book whore. I was chewing through 3-5 books per week (with the exception of Game of Thrones. Talk about a commitment.), and had been reading a lot of paranormal romance. A friend asked me what I would write about if I ever did, and over the next few days I thought about it…and it came to me, like so many good ideas do, lying in bed attempting to sleep.

Greek Mythology.

Oh, how I love Greek Mythology. The gods are so dramatic. They’re relatable because they’re so emotional. And, they’ve got a huge cast and construct set up. So, step one – find something I’m interested in – CHECK. Step two was figure out what the hell they’d be doing. And I decided – I was going to write my favorite book. Which must include:

-Fun. It has to be fun and easy to read.
-Characters. Characters are everything, and if I could give you characters that you love…well that’s the goal.
-Modern. Everything is set in modern times with young, beautiful characters that aren’t (too) annoying. -Happy Endings. Because I love happy endings.

My brother in law and I sat for hours talking about plot, how it would all unfold, how a series would go (because it was always intended to be a series). Learning who the characters were, what they wanted, and how they get what they want and learn a little something about themselves along the way.

And with that, I hope you check out the book, that you laugh out loud a few times, and that you want to give the characters a hug. Or a high five. Or a swift kick in the nuts (ahem, Ares). Be sure to find me on goodreads, facebook, and twitter so we can stay in touch. Also, check out my website at

I love mythology. It is so fascinating. When they mess with contemporary happenings, it makes for great reading. Thanks for sharing.
