New Title Alert!

Well, it will be almost a year until the book hits stores (not like Athena: Grey-Eyed Goddess, out next week, but the book formerly known as The Glory of Hera will now officially be known as Hera: The Goddess and her Glory. The folks in sales thought it was important that we continue the naming style we had established so far with Zeus: King of the Gods and Athena: Grey Eyed Goddess, with the god or goddess's name first, followed by subtitle. Certainly when all twelve volumes are completed, it will look nicer this way, and help people to find the separate volumes easier.

I'm still hard at work coloring Hera: The Goddess and her Glory but let me tell you-- so far it's my favorite of the series. In addition to telling the story of the courtship and wedding of Zeus and Hera, you also get to see the story of Io, the Twelve Labors of Heracles, meet Jason and the Argonauts and see what happens on that mysterious day every year when Hera abandons her position as the wife of Zeus and Queen of the Gods. Cool stuff, if I may say so myself.


  1. Go Herakles! Whoo!

    P.S. Are you putting his profile on like Perseus?

  2. In Hera, do you tell the story of Khelone.

  3. Exactly which stories about Herakles will you be doing? Just wondering what to expect.

  4. Let's see:

    Heracles will be making his way up onto, along with a few others, like Jason, Atlas, the Hydra and maybe a few surprises.

    Old Khelone does not get a mention in Hera (Hera wanted her wedding day to be a happy affair) but I may sneak in a reference in Olympians book 10: Hermes. We'll see.

    In Hera, you'll be seeing the story of Heracles Virtuos Choice, his childhood strangulation of Hera's serpents, the creation of the Milky Way, and of course, his Labors. A few more surprises as well.

  5. Sorry about the comment pile-up. Kinda thought a bunch of other people were commenting on this too, thus making all my comments almost camoflauged.

  6. (Yay! More comments)

    When do you think the profiles will be up on the site. I'm in supreme anticipation to steal them - I mean! LOOK AT them...
