Character Spotlight- Asterion from Minotaur by Phillip W. Simpson + Giveaway

I'd like to welcome Phillip W. Simpson, author of Minotaur to the blog with a character spotlight. Greek myth retelling plus a nod to Beauty and the Beast-- who could ask for more?

Character Spotlight: Asterion aka Minotaur
by Phillip W. Simpson

Minotaur is a retelling or reinterpretation of the famous Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. According to the legend, the Minotaur was a savage half-bull, half-man beast imprisoned in the labyrinth by his father, Minos, the King of Crete.
In the myth, King Minos failed to sacrifice a beautiful white bull to the sea god, Poseidon. To punish him, Poseidon seduced his wife, Queen Pasiphae. Their union brought about Asterion (the starry one) who was later known as Minotaur – the terrible beast of the labyrinth.
According to the myth, Asterion was monstrous with the head of a bull and the body of a man.
In my interpretation, Asterion is nothing like as monstrous. He is born with the horns of a bull.  Asterion’s cruel stepfather hates Asterion because of his deformity and for the harsh reminder of his wife’s betrayal.
Asterion’s childhood is filled with bleak encounters with his stepfather and his horrible younger brother and sister. As he grows older, his great size and horns mark his as a freak. He is also incredible strong. He is an outsider and is teased and feared by others. Because he spends much of his childhood alone, he befriends a dog who in some ways, is his only friend.
Asterion is plain looking rather than handsome but even so, he attracts the interest of Phaedra, Minos’ beautiful daughter, who sees beyond his looks, recognising the kind and gentle man that he is. In this respect, Minotaur is also a story of the beauty and the beast.

Greek Myth Retelling

“Where shall I start?” asked Minotaur.

Ovid made an expansive gesture with both hands. “Where else but the beginning of course.”

Minotaur nodded his huge head. “Yes,” he said. “Yes,” his eyes already glazing over with the weight of thousand year old memories. And then he began.

So begins the story of Asterion, later known as Minotaur, the supposed half bull creature of Greek legend. Recorded by the famous Roman poet, Ovid, Asterion tells of his boyhood in Crete under the cruel hand of his stepfather Minos, his adventures with his friend, Theseus, and his growing love for the beautiful Phaedra.And of course what really happened in the labyrinth.

This is the true story of the Minotaur.

Here They Lie
The Bloodstone Legacy #1

D.K. Burrow

New Adult Southern Gothic
October 5, 2015

Reese Everett’s aunt picked a bad time to die.  Just weeks after a car accident left Reese’s mother unable to travel, her aunt’s house needs to be emptied and sold, leaving Reese as the only member of the family who can do the job.  She typically wouldn’t balk at the opportunity to sift through her aunt’s collection of antiques, but when she arrives in Devil’s Vale, Georgia, she discovers the family house in a state of disrepair she won’t be able to handle alone.

Colton Waters is back in Devil’s Vale – whether he likes it or not.  After he loses his acceptance to medical school with no explanation, he’s left with a single job offer…one that will return him to the hometown he’d hoped to escape.

When an errand to help his sister ends in a meeting with Reese neither will easily forget, Colton takes a job as her temporary handyman.

The longer Reese stays in town, the more she realizes the condition of her aunt’s house isn’t the only thing she hadn’t expected when she made the trip to Devil’s Vale.  Reese isn’t the only gifted member of the family – her aunt Kate has been practicing the family business…the business Reese has been sworn never to discuss.

After a ghostly visitor arrives one night, Reese and Colton learn Kate wasn’t the only one practicing the darker arts.  They begin to uncover secrets that refuse to stay buried.

Here They Lie won the Young Adult Romance Writer’s 2014 award for New Adult fiction.


“Took you long enough.” I pointed to the clock on the wall. “I’m pretty sure the words ‘on my way’ don’t typically mean in two hours.”
“Had a little delay.” Max stood halfway in the door to the office. When the principal called to tell him to empty his dad’s office or the janitor was going to do it for him, I’d volunteered to help. But I didn’t know that meant I was going to be doing the packing while wondering where in the hell Max was.
I recognized the expression on his face, and it wasn’t one that said I’m-sorry-for-making-you-do-this-alone. Nope. He had been preoccupied with something far different than books or yellowed photographs. “Blonde or redhead?”
“Brunette, if you have to know. But it wasn’t like that.” He shook his head, using his best innocent expression.
I didn’t buy it for a second. It was hard to be angry with him, though. He’d spent the first two weeks after our college graduation dealing with a police investigation, planning a funeral, attending the funeral, and then messing with financial stuff that required a lawyer.
Being an only child must suck.
Still, I couldn’t let him off too easy. “Sure it wasn’t.”
“Really.” He held up his hands like he wanted to surrender. “I was driving in from picking up more boxes like you said we needed. I took a wrong turn.”
“Stop right there.” I held my hand up, shooting him a glare. “You took a wrong turn? In Devil’s Vale?”
“Not exactly in Devil’s Vale. Right outside town.” Max shrugged and shook his head in distaste. “I know. I must not have been paying attention. Lucky I did, though. I ran into a girl having car trouble and had to drive her into town.”
“You had to, huh?”
“What was I supposed to do? Leave her stranded out by the bridge?”
He had a point. No one deserved to be stranded out there. Not at night. “You didn’t tell me that’s where she was. What were you doing out there?”
“No idea. Like I said. I got confused. Ended up out on 20. When I came back, there she was.” He ran his fingers through his shaggy, black hair. In the past, he’d always kept his hair almost military-short, and I couldn’t get used to seeing him like this. His hair was just another sign of all the things that had gone wrong since the last week of May. I didn’t think he’d gotten a haircut since before his dad’s funeral, and he’d needed one back then. “Sorry. I shouldn’t have left you with all this mess.”
Come to think of it, I wasn’t sure if he’d been in the office since the day the police had called him. I couldn’t say that I really blamed him for avoiding it. Even after I’d already boxed almost all his dad’s knick-knacks, awards, and old textbooks, the newly painted wall and the new tiles on the ceiling made the memory of what happened in this room too fresh, even for me.
Green eyes just a little too wide, Max toed the threshold like he’d spontaneously combust if he entered the room. That did it. We weren’t staying here any longer. I folded the panels of the box closed and ran a strip of packing tape over them. “Tell you what. I’ve been here long enough. Why don’t we call it a day?”
“No, I can do this,” he protested. But his expression said he couldn’t.
“Look.” I gestured around the room. Almost everything left was property of Devil’s Vale Independent School District. “We can come back in the morning and finish up in an hour. If I pack any more tonight, I’m going to turn into a box myself.”
I didn’t need to say that the old, empty building crossed my creeped-out tolerance an hour ago. I’d only stayed because he wasn’t answering his cell phone, and I wanted to make sure he didn’t try to tackle this himself. Spend enough time in here alone, and anyone would start seeing ghosts.
“I don’t care what they do with the rest of this shit.” Max’s voice rose with the same annoyed edge that it always got when he’d had a pass picked off in an interception.
He was in over his head, and he didn’t have anyone else to help him. Well, he didn’t have anyone who wasn’t a member of the not-quite-dead-yet Sunday school class at his dad’s church to help. He didn’t need their whispers making this any harder. That’s why I was helping my teammate when he was in trouble.
“I don’t have anything better to do. You know that.”
“Too well. When are you going to talk with your dad about your little issue?” Max hit upon the topic I’d been trying to avoid.
My little issue. He’d graced my situation with the nickname to make it seem less important than it was. As I’d driven down the roads leading from campus to home, I’d barely been able to think of anything else. I’d stayed behind, waiting to hear word from my interview. I should have known it wasn’t going to be good news. When the medical school spread good news, it didn’t wait to call you last.
We’d been dancing around my issue for close to a month. Dealing with the loss of Max’s dad had almost made things easier. Almost. No one expected to get the call from the principal yesterday announcing that he had to clear out the office by Sunday, least of all him. He was also the least prepared to deal with cleaning up the aftermath of the end of his only parent.
“Honestly, no idea. I’ve been waiting for him to be in a good mood.”
“With your dad, you’re going to be waiting a while.”
“I know.” I brushed my hands on my jeans. I tucked the worn, leather chair into its familiar home at the oversized desk before heading toward the door. “I have one thing my sister needs me to do, but give me an hour and meet me at my place.”
“You’re Shelby’s errand-boy now?”
“She had to stay late tonight, making sure she was set up for the festival. And besides, she saw a letter from Augusta.”
“Ah, so she’s blackmailing you. That one’s impressive.”
I didn’t need to see that glint in Max’s eye. I’d seen it plenty of times when we were partying at a sorority house. The last thing any of us needed was Max turning his bad-boy vibe on Shelby.
“Just bring the beer.” The discussion was over.
“Your mom will kill you if she finds us drinking.”
“My mom never wanders down to the cabin. Not unless it’s daylight.”
He didn’t pretend like he wasn’t relieved we were heading out of the office. For a while we just walked, and I let myself relax with every step we took.
But I could sense a question hanging in the air. As we passed the humming water fountains, he finally gave up and asked it. “Do you think your dad’s going to let you stay here?”
“Mom’ll probably make him. At least for now. He’s probably going to want me to come to work on the ranch.”
“You’re going to love that.”
I let out a long breath. “Yeah. Not exactly what I had planned.”
“You. On the ranch. That’s…that’s kind of funny.”
“Sure it is. It’s freakin’ hilarious. Dad’s going to be thrilled to trap me in the business. He didn’t want me to go to med school in the first place.” A lifetime of smelling like horses. Exactly what I’d always wanted. Exactly why I’d tried to escape.
Max laughed for the first time in weeks. I didn’t even have to look at him to know he was shaking his head, but I did. Sure enough, he had his best you-have-to-be-fuckin’-kidding-me expression on his face while he ran his fingers through his hair as if someone had dumped a cup of spiders on top of him.
We’d been friends since before either of us could pronounce the word friend. I didn’t remember a time that he wasn’t seated at our family’s table for Sunday dinner. We could finish each other’s sentences, but there were things that even Max didn’t understand. Things I wasn’t allowed to explain.
“That’s going to go well.”
“Tell me about it. I’m not sure if I really have a choice.” With student loans already begging to be repaid and parents who’d given the We’re Not Paying for Your College lecture not quite four years ago, I never really imagined myself in this scenario.
High school valedictorian. Captain of the football team. Member of the right fraternity. Getting into my choice of med schools should have been a breeze.
Should have.
Seems like I had a whole lot of should-haves lately.
“So you’re just staying here?”
Being a Waters in this town carries a responsibility. Even without my dad in the room, I could hear his voice echoing in my head. “Until I figure something else out, yeah, I’m staying here. I don’t really have much other choice.”
“Sure you do.” He shrugged, and his collar pulled back just enough to reveal the crow tattoo he’d recently gotten. “There’s always a choice.”
“Speaking of choices, you’re still taking that job in Seattle?”
“Money’s great.” Max pursed his lips and nodded like a dashboard bobble head. “It’s a great job. I can’t turn it down.”
He sounded like he wanted me to believe he was excited, but something in his voice was forced. He needed me to believe he wanted to take this job, even though he’d never mentioned applying for it. One day he was the last one standing next to the freshly covered grave in Devil’s Vale’s cemetery, and the next he’d taken a job out of state.
“You ever going to tell me what it is?”
“If I told you, I’d have to kill you.”
I waited for him to laugh, but it didn’t come. “Never really figured you for one of those kind of jobs.”
He swallowed, and a hard edge came into his voice. “Maybe you don’t know me as well as you think you do.”
Was that why couldn’t he look me in the eyes?
“You know, you don’t have to go. Hell, you can stay with me.” I pushed open the heavy doors leading to the locker rooms. Our footsteps echoed through the empty, tiled hallway. I was surprised to realize I was happy not to be alone. The place was filled with spirits of football players past. Even in the dead of summer, the locker rooms never lost their odor of sweat, grass, mud, and teenage hormones gone wild.
“Look, there’s nothing here for me. Except for you, of course. But bro, I just don’t roll that way.” Max half laughed and shoved his hands in the pockets of his jacket. It shouldn’t have been cold enough for jackets. Not in June. Not in Georgia.
“You don’t know how lucky you are to be getting out of here.”
“Trust me, Colton, I do.” He hit the crash bar to the door leading outside. He took a deep breath, and I could almost see the relief spreading across his face. I hadn’t realized how badly he wanted to move, to leave Devil’s Vale and its memories behind. Max had always been a guy of few words. Since he’d taken the job in Seattle, he’d become a man of even fewer.
We descended the steps without talking. We’d been down this path more times than I could count: pee wee football players leaving high school camp; middle school teammates when our school’s field was damaged after a wave of vandalism hit the town; finally, championship co-quarterbacks from the first team to win state. Everyone predicted the guys from our team were destined to do great things.
Destiny was a funny thing.

Review: The Caretaker's Guide to Fablehaven + Excerpt & Giveaway

Caretakers Guide to Fablehaven (1)

Caretakers Guide to Fablehaven

The Caretaker's Guide to Fablehaven
by Brandon Mull

This guidebook to the Fablehaven magical preserve is filled with everything a new Caretaker might need to know in order to survive. There are entries detailing important information about artifacts large and small, a complete bestiary of creatures (from fairies to trolls to satyrs), a guide to identifying demons, dragons, and wizards as well as valuable insights into the other magical preserves. Immerse yourself into the secret knowledge that has been handed down through the generations by reading the updates and notes written in the margins by the former Caretakers of Fablehaven, including Grandpa Sorenson, Kendra, and Seth. Fully-illustrated, this unique encyclopedia has gathered the world of Fablehaven into one volume.

Review: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

The Caretaker's Guide to Fablehaven is a visually stunning, must-have companion book for Fablehaven fans. This wonderful  guide really opens up the universe, offering beautiful photos of creatures and fantastic descriptions. Everything you ever questioned or wanted to know more about can be found among the pages.

I loved the layout of the book. So much thought went into making it appear as though it really was created for a Caretaker. The notes in the margins were a great touch. I loved reading about all of the creatures, and I think even those not familiar with the world of Fablehaven would enjoy this book. I'm a sucker for companion books like this, and I have to say, this is one of the nicest I've ever read.

My copy was a pdf file which was very nice. Though the book is available for Kindle, I think hardcover is the way to go since the illustrations were so amazing. I just don't think an ebook can do those gorgeous pictures justice.

If you haven't read the Fablehaven series, I highly recommend it to middle school and high school students. My son started reading it in fifth grade and couldn't get more books fast enough. To this day, it's one of his favorite series. I'll be buying this for my son for Christmas.

Fablehaven Caretakers

Excerpt from Introduction

If you are in possession of this book you are assumed to be the caretaker or an apprentice caretaker of Fablehaven. By now you’ve been introduced to the world of mythical and magical creatures. However, there is still much to learn. Previous caretakers of Fablehaven thought it would be helpful to create aCaretaker’s Guide specifically for those tasked with the job of nurturing, protecting, and surviving this preserve and its inhabitants.

Do not be fooled. Fablehaven is an unpredictable and dangerous place. However, the collective knowledge gathered within the pages of this bestiary will give you the knowledge and wisdom needed to not only survive but to thrive.

The creatures of Fablehaven are either light or dark, not necessarily good or evil. In order to be good, one must recognize the difference between right and wrong and strive to choose the right. To be truly evil one must do the contrary. Being good or evil is a choice. This is not so with the creatures of Fablehaven. What they are largely governs how they act. Some are inherently builders, some are nurturers, some are playful. Some are inherently destroyers, some are deceivers, some crave power. Some love light, some love darkness. But change their nature, and without much resistance, their identities follow. Like a fairy becoming an imp, or an imp regaining her fairyhood.

Much counsel and advice has been passed down through generations and given to the new caretakers of this preserve. Perhaps the most invaluable piece of advice that has ever been given is this: Those who are careful to cause no mischief, work no magic, and inflict no harm are protected by the foundational treaty of Fablehaven. This truth alone may be your strongest ally and your only defense.

One final note. The signs leading up to the front gate were not always there. In the late eighteenth century, before the guest register that controls access to Fablehaven was created, two poachers entered the property in search of big game. Needless to say, they found it. Or it found them. Many days later, the resident caretaker found them as well. Or at least he found their bodies of petrified stone. And thus the first signs outside the gates of Fablehaven were posted.

As caretaker you have accepted a most noble assignment. Keep your eyes open. Obey with exactness. Take risks only as the last resort and you will have a better chance at seeing another sunrise. Welcome to Fablehaven.

Interview with Lizzy Ford, Author of Omega

I'm thrilled to welcome Lizzy Ford, author of Omega, to the blog today. She was kind enough to join us and answer some questions.

Tell us about the main character. Who is Alessandra?
She’s the last Oracle of Delphi responsible for stopping the warring Greek gods from destroying humanity. She possesses the magic of a god but can’t access it until she passes three trials assigned to her by the members of the Sacred Triumvirate. Aside from grappling with this new world and getting a crash course in what powerful people will do to get what they want, she also has to figure out who to trust - and quickly, because the fate of everyone rests on her shoulders.

What’s your dystopian world like in Omega?
Okay, here’s the bigger picture! It’s like our world in terms of technology and modernity– but slightly different! Omega is set in Washington DC, the seat of political power for the world.
At the top of the food chain are the gods and the Supreme Triumvirate which governs the interactions between gods and humanity and creates and enforces the laws. The Supreme Triumvirate consists of the Silent Queen, (whose royal Greek bloodline was blessed by the gods) the Supreme Magistrate (the elected leader of humanity) and Supreme Priest, the gods’ advocate to humanity. Each member of the Triumvirate is powerful and secretly working against the other two members, and all three of them want to find Alessandra for different reasons. 
Five years before Omega, a war breaks out when the Greek gods and goddesses are trapped on Earth, unable to return to their home dimension. Determined to have their own territories to rule, they begin infighting, and humanity is caught in the crosshairs.
The loose coalition of the Supreme Triumvirate has been unraveling since then, and each member begins preparing to take over what is left of the world. The Silent Queen has created a hidden army, while the Supreme Magistrate is positioning the military for a coup. SISA, the religious police who can make anyone disappear and who answer to the demigod Supreme Priest, have been manipulating the wars between the gods to further his agenda.
All three of these entities have spent the past five years politically manipulating the scene and preparing for war against the others – and the gods. They’ve also been waiting for one thing: Alessandra, the next Oracle of Delphi, who is the key in who ultimately wins.
Omega opens with Alessandra appearing on the scene as an eighteen year old Oracle with no concept of how important she is or the trials she’s about to face.

Omega is listed as Book #1. How many books do you have planned?
Three in the series, with companion short stories and novelettes preceding each main book.

Who is your favorite Greek God/Goddess?
I love Artemis. She’s strong, able, feminine, wise, and loves nature.

If you could visit any fictional place, where would you go?
That’s a toughie! Maybe to the world of Elizabeth Bennet in “Pride and Prejudice” (but only if I can also be Elizabeth!

What’s your favorite TV show or movie?
I love Doctor Who!! I love how imaginative it is and how unpredictable!

What’s your go to comfort food?
Anything baked or homemade! I love sweets.

Where can readers find you online?

YA Dystopia
October 25, 2015

Amazon | B&N | Goodreads

In a modern world ruled by territorial Greek gods, the human race has been oppressed, exploited and now, nearly destroyed by the constant infighting of gods.

However, a human girl with the power of a goddess is coming of age. Alessandra is the Oracle of Delphi – the last prophesized – and bears the mark of the double omega. Soon after she turns eighteen, Alessandra is told her destiny: to step between the warring gods and the human race and save her world from certain ruin.

For the gods, her appearance marks the beginning of the end – their end. They and the Triumvirate – leaders of the human elite – who serve them will stop at nothing to preserve their power.

Alessandra emerges from the forest where she spent her life hidden from gods and men and immediately plummets into a race against time, gods, and herself to discover who and what she is in a world where everyone she meets has a hidden agenda, and those pulling the strings remain in the shadows.

Before she can determine exactly what kind of savior her world needs, she must first master her power by completing three trials devised by the Triumvirate to enslave her.

One lone girl stands between warring gods and the people she’s destined to protect, but it’s the battle to understand who she is that she must win first.
