You may have noticed that the countdown clock is going...
Yep. We have a release date! Mythos 2: Daughter of the Sea will be released by Aspen Mountain Press on May 7th! Want to hear more about it? Okay--here we go:
The young gods of Olympus have pursued the sea god Nereus’ daughters, Amphitrite and Thetis, since they grew to maturity. The sisters are used to the adoration of immortal men and like the attention they receive. But when the imprisoned Titan, Prometheus, makes a prophecy that Thetis’ son will be greater than his father, the gods shun the beautiful nymph. Thetis hides herself away from Olympus, leaving her sister Amphitrite angry and in no mood to deal with the fickle tastes of men.
When the King of the ocean, Poseidon, watches Amphitrite dance at a feast upon Olympus, he falls instantly in love with her. His attempts to court Amphitrite end in disaster; she flees to the one place in the three realms where no Olympian can go. Can Poseidon find some messenger to break through her anger and win her heart? Or will the great god of the oceans be spurned by this daughter of the sea?
Heh. I love that storyline. At any rate, the adventures of Amphitrite and Poseidon will be released on May the 7th and I'm excited about it!
In other news...
I've received two new reviews this week. ChrisChat Reviews posted articles about both The Asphodel Cycle 3: Temptation of Asphodel and Vampire Covenants 1: Breaking the Covenants.
About Temptation, the reviewer said in part:
"...As a reader, we all love tightly written tales. Stories which move quickly and have moments of calm where we can breath a little, where the characters can relax before the next surprise, the next battle. As a reviewer, these tales make my day. I love books which carry me away with their telling and have me forgetting I’m suppose to be looking for the positives and any negatives. Ms. Summers continues to capture the reader in me, while making me, the reviewer, forget what I’m suppose to be reading for..."
About Breaking the Covenants, co-written with Rob Graham, she writes:
"...In BREAKING THE COVENANTS you will be introduced to many other characters…the characters that guide, hinder, protect, and use Marguerite and Gunther. My favourite is Marcellin. I don’t want to tell much about Marcellin—he’s a character one must discover for oneself—I’m already hoping for a story of his own.Truthfully, there are other characters within BREAKING THE COVENANTS, which could easily carry their own separate story. Ms. Summers, Mr. Graham, was that a subtle enough hint? I am eagerly waiting book two. .."
ChrisChat Reviews gave both books a FOUR out of FOUR. Not too shabby, eh?
And, so--today some of my promo items came in for the RT Convention. I'm excited--the little document stands look great and are a really nice gift for readers. Everyone wants something to hold up a document when they're typing, right? And instead of the big, bulky ugly metal ones, what could be nicer than a small, red, portable document stand...with my name and website address on it?
OW. That hurt. The emergency root canal turned into TWO root canals this morning. I was in the dentist's chair from eight am until just before three and my jaw is SCREAMING at me. That's enough blogging for today. See you next time!
Oh, by the way--want a document stand?
