WOW – You guys are amazing! Loved seeing all of the posts and tweets with the For the Love of Hades book trailer – very cool! What do you think of the trailer?
Making a book trailer is so much fun. It’s part of the creating process – just like making inspiration boards. I’m kind of in love with Pinterst over allowing me the ability to make virtual boards versus the old print-cut-paste thing I used to do.
Want a glimpes of my Hades board… Here’s a particular favorite image of mine. It’s exactly how I imagined the firestorm that plays such a pivotal role in For the Love of Hades AND Medusa, A Love Story.
Excerpt time… I’m sharing a snippet that makes me giggle. Hermes is one of my favorite characters in the series… Oh who am I kidding? I really enjoy working with all of the characters in the Olympus series.
“Is the impending marriage of a king and a Goddess frivolous?” Hermes asked. “Demeter requested you come.”
Hades felt a sudden weight upon his chest. “Whose marriage?”
“You know,” Hermes said softly.
Hades swallowed. “How will attending such festivities appease me?”
“If she means naught to you, as you claim, this will cause you no discomfort. Indeed it might do you good to see her wedded and bedded. You can move on, free of her.”
His breathing became challenged.
“Demeter wanted to thank you for shielding Persephone from Poseidon. She has arranged offerings for you at the celebrations.”
Hades wanted to hit something. Hermes was goading him, knowingly. He wanted to hit Hermes.
“Or you may stay here, reject the offerings, and brood over the loss of one that was never yours to lose. Not because she would not have you, but because you would not have her,”
Hermes finished, a taunting grin upon his face.
Hades roared, his anger evident, “You have come to torment me, then?”
“You’ve assured me you cannot be tormented.”
Hades stared at him, fighting his fury.
Hermes moved forward, picking up the sword Aeacus had left. “We could wager on it.”
“If I defeat you, you will accompany me.”
“If you win, I will never speak of Persephone to you again. Ever.”
Hades’ eyes narrowed. “Ever?”
Hermes lifted the sword, tossing the hilt back and forth in his hands. His face was expectant, enjoying himself immensely. “Ever. Though speaking of her should provide you no distress, considering your proclaimed indifference to her…”
Hades swung the sword, bringing it down upon Hermes with all of his strength. Hermes sidestepped the blow, laughing.
See what I mean? Love this excerpt…
Okay, onto the entry-earning tasks part of the post… Ready? I’ll go easy on you, promise.

Here’s the link for his Pinterest Board.
Feel free to poke around and explore my other books boards while you’re there, if you like. Being the movie-obsessed gal I am – you’ll find a lot of familiar faces. What do you think of my ‘casting’ choices?
