Storytellers. That's another name for novelists. But some storytellers are not novelists. My grandfather was one of those. He wasn't a novelist, but he did tell stories. And later this month you'll get to know one of his more popular stories when I guest post on Erin Bevan's blog. I'm excited about that blog post because I don't think I've ever posted any of my grandfather's stories anywhere. (At least, not that I can remember).
Verbal storytelling is so important. Some of the stories we have nowadays started off as verbal storytelling before they were written down or they were in a rough format before they were properly put together (like the Bible).

I'm not just a writer, but I love to read, too!
And stories play such an important role in our lives. Some of them teach us something (like Aesop's Fables) entertain us (like my Grandfather's stories) or provide an escape from every day life (like what I write, for example).
The most recent "escape" from every day life I have available for you, my darling readers, is as you know, Immortal Dreams Book Two: Astral Love.
I love both Astral Love and its predecessor, Book One, Divine Love. It's been a lot of fun to incorporate my love of Greek mythology, with adventure and romance. And Greek mythology is rich with all kinds of stories--from tragedies, to adventures, to morals, to romance. In my opinion, there's something for everybody in Greek mythology. And that's what I've tried to do with these books (and it's upcoming third and final novel, Book Three, whose title and cover I'll reveal probably in December)--put a little something for everyone in each installment.
If you haven't checked out Astral Love (but have read Book One, Divine Love) then here's the blurb from the book and a link to where you can get it:
Laney Alberts and Jason Magnus eagerly proceed with their prom plans, determined to have a normal night in spite of their Immortal destiny. However, when a mysterious visitor appears claiming the Astra Queen desires the pair’s presence, everything changes.
Despite his skepticism, Jason finally agrees to visit the queen so Laney can learn about her Astra background.
Too late they discover an enemy has set a trap for Laney. In his attempts to free her, Jason’s powers are tested. But, when faced with shocking details of his past, Laney must decide whether or not she’ll continue the mission.
With their futures and the fates of both worlds at stake, everything depends on Laney’s choice. And their survival.
The adventure continues in Immortal Dreams Book Two: Astral Love.
You can pick up a copy of Astral Love on Amazon Kindle.
