|Mythological Messes Redux by Tilly Greene|
6 ebooks in 1
Mythology is full of fascinating details of Ancient Greek society, unique scenarios, interesting characters and their lives which culminate in powerful moral lessons on life, love and war. Unfortunately, the stories don’t always end on a good note for those involved. It’s time to shake things up and give a few of the heroes and heroines a chance at a happy ending.
Myths with Hephaestus, Castor and Pollux, the Cyclopes, Marsyas and Zeus are extended and the men find themselves face to face with love.
Their days and nights are full of glorious sex, some with multiple partners and some with bondage, but there’s one question left unspoken. Will their quests for happiness be long lasting or will someone leave once a problem arises?

At the end of October when I was 17, yup, young and a recent high school graduate, I was lucky enough to be given a trip to the UK. I saw loads in England, Scotland and Ireland, but I knew I'd be back. Too many doors of wonder had been opened.

For example, in my book Double Punch there's a scene where Ani walks into Castor and Pollux's kitchen and finds a naked man making coffee ... that really happened to me!
Well, happened with a few changes. The man wasn't nude, he was shirtless and wearing boxers, but why I remembered this incident so strongly was his hairy back ... it was like a rug and all I could think of was how unhygienic it was in the kitchen. Before I could say anything, my cutie quickly ushered me out of the house with a promise that he'd make it up to me.
I haven't seen the hairy coffee maker in almost 10 years, but he's picking us up at the airport and taking us for "a great Irish fry up breakfast."
Should be interesting.
Double Punch, part of the Mythological Messes Redux series is a erotic mythological romance + ménage a trois, can be ordered through:

Art! ART! Yes, art is very easy to view and it may make you happy as well.
You can sit at home and search out a favorite painting or artist of yours, look at the pic and absorb every little nuance. Also on the computer that I've done is search eBay by style and voila, you might find a piece you love ... the canvas below is a great example ... I've done this a few times and just need to get it, okay, them framed.

Another way you can get an art fix is by visiting a gallery or museum. I was reading a fashion magazine the other night and it noted Vermeer's Girl With a Pearl Earring was going to visit a museum out this way starting in October. I know my sister is a huge fan of Vermeer and so let her know she needed to add a visit to her November trip.

And if you don't have a favorite period or artist, pick up a book and read about it, them, and tell your friend you learned something new.
Art is a snapshot of one person's view of something and how they see it may open your eyes to so much more than what is there.

My hint is to carve time out of your busy weekend, an hour will do but more would be even better, and spend it doing what you want to do, not what you HAVE to do.
Sleep in, read, go out for lunch and eat it in a park, see a movie ... whatever, just do something for you and be happy doing it.
I have a couple of hours, at least, because the cutie is working his homebrew and then getting ready for another trip. I plan to finish, hopefully, In Cold Blood. Banned Books Week is done but the book I chose to read isn't. It's been good, interesting, but devoid of emotion. Capote took cold hard facts, molded them into a pseudo-conversational tone and then took a step back.
Despite the remote approach, I feel for the family and, yes, even the killers ... well, one of them at least. I know how this book ends, but, like those who went to see the Titanic movie, I want to read to the end.

... a pic of our home in England.
We lived in Knaresborough, an old village in North Yorkshire that existed before the Domesday Book. There's a renovated barn on the road in front which meant it was a quiet sanctuary. The row home was built from the stones taken from piles created when Oliver Cromwell tore the local castle down.
For the first 300 years the house was actually a foundry and then it was eventually made into a home. Besides the wild fuscia tree [yes, a TREE that bloomed beautifully even though it was the north of England] in the front yard, there was another gem down the right side. You can see a hint of it in the picture, a pathway, well, it holds the outhouses for the 3 homes in the row ... we stored our garden stuff and trash can in it. Behind the cottage is a dry moat owned by the Queen and the remains of the castle.
Yes, it was three levels and tiny! In the cellar was the kitchen with a stunning Rayburn, first floor housed the living room and study [in extension] and upstairs in the attic was 1 1/2 bedrooms and a bathroom [in the extension ... that's how they moved the facilities inside]. It suited us just fine ... just had to walk up the road about 2 blocks as the crow flies to our favorite pub :-)
We loved this house, easy to see why and the Virginia Creeper on the front was beautiful but in actually it was a menace as it ate the pointing [cement] between the lime stones.
Fun to live in an old treasure, but we love our baby now ... she's only 100 years old.
My Angel from Good, Bad and Kinky, a paranormal erotic romance + bondage, was set in Knaresborough!

People visit Whitby to enjoy an old English seaside town, eat fish and chips and possibly see a vampire or two. Ella lives there and is hunting a fake vamp that uses a famous young adult book series to ruin many young girls’ lives. One night a man she’s been watching shows his true colors and she puts her plan for revenge into action. Everything was in place for an anonymous act until an unpredicted twist flips things on their head. With only seconds to decide, she’s forced to make changes and ends up getting something she hadn’t bargained for—a sexy man who wants nothing except her body.
Revenge is sweet, but is a night of wild sex too high a price to pay for murder?
