Today is MY day… And guess what I’m going to be talking about?
Love in ancient times… in Greece… And Mythology too!
I know! You are SHOCKED. Blown away, even, right?
Okay, okay, you knew it was coming. And I know that my obsession with all things Greek Mythology doesn’t make me unique. So many readers LOVE to read about characters from or based on those that fill Edith Hamilton’s Greek Mythology (didn’t we all have to buy this book at one time or another for school?). Writer’s too. I love how many variations, tweaks, loopholes, and complete surprises aome authors have managed to master – creating a new, rich, yet familiar experience.
Weaving romance into these tales – a no brainer. I happen to favor tragic spins, but that’s just me. However, there have been some highly satisfying happily ever after reads too! And THAT’s what I hope you’ll leave in the comments – your favorite Myth related books. You know books you want to share (or should AVOID!) so we can all increase out TBR list for the summer. So, thanks for that! I will pick one random commenter for a signed copy of For the Love of Hades, to sweeten the deal!
And, since I’m a rabid movie fan, I have to say that READERS aren’t alone. I’m going to take this time to share the new movie trailer for 300:Rise of an Empire….

I’m so torn! I LOVED the 300! Seriously – I used a majority of the soundtrack to write Medusa, A Love Story. But will this be the kind-of sequel to honor the 300 in all it’s manly cheesiness? I’m not sold. And what about the romance people? Without Leonidas and Gorgo, will we have the foundation that made the half-naked battles less about half-naked hot guys and more about preserving home and hearth? And what’s with Eva Green…
In other upcoming flicks that I can’t ignore but haven’t decided I’m having Olympic Love for – The Rock (LOVE YOU!) will be Hercules next year. :)
