I've spent more than half my life working on the first story, and don't think for one MINUTE that it was easy. It wasn't. It wouldn't have taken me that long to finish and publish if it were a simple task. Plus, my story had to grow and mature. I don't have all the time in the world, either, to sit at my computer and write. Oh, how I WISH I could do that. Alas, I can't. My career—my passion—takes up a bulk of my existence, and I gladly let that be my reality. Teaching makes my soul smile. But, now, writing? That makes just makes me all sorts of giddy.
I don't claim to be the next "Best Selling Author" of the 21st century, and I don't have the time or the inclination to make that happen anyway. As Macbeth says in Act 1, Scene 3 of Macbeth: "If chance will have me king, why, chance may crown me. Without my stir."
Indeed—If chance will have me a successful writer, why, chance may make that happen.
Anyway, the sequel! It'll delve more into (1) the personalities of Dan (Aegis), Sarah (Aether), Brandon (Zodiak), and Aleta (Aetos), as well as their place in all of THIS, (2) what this world looks like. What's changed? What hasn't? Why has what's changed changed, and why has what hasn't changed not changed... whew!
Sorry. I digress. (3) Just what role the Olympian gods play in the cosmos, or do they? Who are they? What are they? Why are they? Plus... and this is big. Quite gargantuan...
(4) the offspring of Nyx: who, what, why?
I will say this much: she's not the aloof, distant immortal who resolves to perch herself on Olympos and deign to interact with mortals. She wants to see what makes up humanity—up close.
A few questions will be answered, and many more asked. You'll just have to wait and see, now won'tcha?
More to come...
