No sooner is one book out than it’s time to start promoting the next one. That’s what my writing life is going to be like for the next little while. So without further ado, here’s Discord’s Apple.
This is the first of the two stand-alone novels I wrote right after finishing Kitty and The Midnight Hour, before it had actually sold. So yeah, I wrote it several years ago now, and I’m happy that it’s finally getting out in the world. It’s contemporary fantasy, with a little near-future apocalypse thrown in, and a whole lot of Greek mythology on the side. (I recently had a friend ask if I was ever going to write a book with a male point of view character. Well, this one has two point of view characters, and one of them is a male soldier from the Trojan War.)
Plot in a nutshell: Evie Walker rushes home to the small town of Hopes Fort, Colorado, when her father falls ill. There, she discovers that she’s the heir to a family heritage that runs much deeper than she ever imagined. She also discovers that the Trojan War isn’t really over — Hera still wants that apple, you see. And it’s sitting in Evie’s father’s basement.
Due out July 2010.
