For The Love of Mythology Giveaway Hop



For those who follow my Lana Harvey series, it's pretty obvious that I'm a big mythology geek. On the streets of Limbo City, it would be perfectly acceptable to find the Egyptian god Horus discussing the weather with the Greek Muses, or the goddess Athena gossiping with a Norse Valkyrie. Sticking to one flavor of ancients just wouldn't have satisfied me, so I created a world that would welcome them all... and allow them to eat Cheetos and watch television, if they so desired.


The different deities that we humans have created over the millennia are fascinating. They're diverse and conflicted and.... weird. Really, really weird. Seriously. Osiris had a golden penis because a fish ate his other one. Athena was born fully grown from Zeus's skull. And what about all those Hindu gods with their crazy spider arms? That's probably why I love them so. These magnificent myth lords came from a time where it was perfectly acceptable to turn your dreams (or nightmares) into a full-blown faith and build an entire society around it. Of course, you can still do that today, but only if you're a maniacal cult leader... or a writer.


In honor of the super fantastic "For the Love of Mythology Giveaway Hop" I'm offering a signed set of books 1-3 in my Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. series, along with a nifty pair of beer glasses from Purgatory Lounge (the most happening bar in Limbo City). Be sure to click on the prettiful button above to enter for the Giveaway Hop's grand prize (which includes a $50 Amazon GC and lots of books and other goodies!). Also, check out  the other blogs featured in the hop for more epically mythic giveaways!


Good luck! ♥

  1. Myth Master, huh? Right now, I am in LOVE with Marie Hall. She took classic stories, such as Alice in Wonderland, and has made them into paranormal romance novels. It makes the books fun to read because the underlying story is already familiar, but it's Marie's "improvements" that truly make these now-adult-fairy-tales aawesome!

  7. Just one?! That's so hard....I think I'll go with Mercedes Lackey's Five Hundred Kingdoms series. Read the first 3 and found them to be smart and humorous retellings of different fairy tales.

  16. Myth master that is hard... If you go for classical I would say Homer or Sophocles... Modern Day I would Say Sherrilyn Kenyon as she has a pretty good mix of gods and goddesses not just greek gods either.

  18. I don't really think I have one for the old writers, but for new, it would have to be Ilona Andrews. In the Kate Daniels series, it is full of myths and legends and magical beings.

  19. Right now I would have to pick Melissa del la cruz. Her witches of the east end series has a great mix oof myth and fiction.

  23. At the moment, my favorite modern myth masters are Laura Kaye (Hearts of Anemoi)
    and Jacquelyn Frank (Nightwalkers). However, I will always love the classics from Homer and Virgil to Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides. Thanks for being part of the Hop.
