Night Owl Reviews has recently reviewed Seducing the Myth. Lexile gives it four stars and writes:"Overall I have to say I was pretty pleased with this anthology. The stories were on the fairly short side, but were by in large really hot. Not all of them ended happily, some of the authors chose to stick closely to the ending of the original myth or tale (The True Folly of Icaraus by Saskia Walker for instance) and there were some surprises (The Lady of the Flowers is based on a Welsh legend) amongst the normally re-imagine Greek/Roman mythology."Read it for yourself at Night Owl Reviews!Pick up your smexy copy at All Romance

...until the release of Erotica Apocrypha from Freaky Fountain Press! I can't wait to see the other stories in the collection. My own story, "Eat Your Heart Out, Pele," is among those included and something I am proud to put out there. Nothing like a tale of love, lust, jealousy, self-discovery and journey to make your day. And I love Hawaiian mythology; it's fantastical, wrought with jealous gods of the earth, the sea and the sky. Here's the blurb for the anthology:All mythologies have them—those dark, twisted, horrible elements that are just Eros turned inside out. From the Biblical to the Norse, the familiar to the esoteric, the twelve stories in this anthology reinterpret and re-imagine these themes.
