I posted a lot of this on the Plotting Princesses Blog – but I decided to make it ‘interesting’…
Everyone who votes and leaves a comment will be enterred for a drawing of Medusa A Love Story, a button, and magnet too…
You do not have to vote for my top contenders, you just have to leave a suggestions. A name will be picked from all those that leave a comment and I’ll contact you to get your address.
So, take your time and think about this. This is what I’m looking for – ARES:
Imagine, if you will, a pretty mental dude. He lives for battle, death, violence, and blood. He’s a visceral reaction, a nightmare, an adrenaline jolt that leaves no doubt that he will kill, torture, and maim without the slightest hesitation or regret. And yet, I need to make him irrisistable to Aphrodite – without softening him one iota. Finding that person, visually, has been tricky.
He has to have crazy eyes. The kind that intrigue, terrify, and demand… So, there you have it. I know, he sounds awesome, right?
You can pick from my top two contender (below) or give me someone new to consider – just leave your answer in the comments! I’ll draw the winner on the morning of the 15th!
Yep, it’s The Day! I’m thrilled, nauseous and totally freaking out.
Today is Medusa, A Love Story’s Official Release day – aka: Book Birthday!
This is MY first Book Birthday, too!
Which is… well, words cannot describe the way it feels.
I’m sharing a few review snippets…
Astrid (Amazon review) said: “I have been waiting for weeks for this book to come out and I was not disappointed. A tragic love story of great depth and heartbreak. How Ariston pours his heart out to Hades brought tears to my eyes. Perfect for anyone who loves mythology and reading of the power of love.”
“Medusa, A Love Story is a beautifully written story with characters who are stunningly alive and well crafted. A creative twist on mythology! If you’re into myth and/or romance you’ll be well pleased.” – Raven (Amazon review)
“The love between the hero and heroine is enviable. It’s what love stories are made for, really. It just tugged at me and kept me thinking about it long after I read the book.” Lynn Rush, author of Wasteland and Awaited.
“Sasha really had me feeling for Medusa’a plight. A really enjoyable read and I will definitely be reading more of her books.” Kay, Goodreads review
“Beautifully and poetically written!” Jessi, Goodreads review
“This is a beautiful love story, and the beginning of a fantastic series. Do yourself a favor and read it as soon as it’s available. Sasha is a very gifted storyteller and has a rich way with words.” Allison, Goodreads review

When I hit 2000 followers, I will be giving away a signed copy of Medusa, too – a bookmark and some other promo items. Why? Why not? It’s a BIG DAY for ME and Medusa, A Love Story.
I sincerely hope you enjoy my first novel. I loved writing it and, all nerves aside, I’m proud to share it with you!
If you find yourself enjoying my take on Ancient Greece and the Olympians, Hades is up next… He’s a pretty dreamy anti-hero. I’ll let you know when his birthday is on the horizon!
***I’d also like to ask a favor from you readers.***
A book needs reviews, so do authors. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and Shelfari are all wonderful places to post a review. Your reviews help spread the word about books, builds interest, and impacts an authors reputation. Think about it and, if you’re up for it, write and share a review on one, or all, of these sites. Not just for Medusa (that would be awesome) but for other books you’ve loved or want to recommend.
