I get asked a lot if Persephone is ever going to return as a main character. Short answer, no. Iron Queen is the last book in the Persephone portion of the Daughters of Zeus series.
Slightly longer answer: The ripples the events that occurred in the Persephone trilogy caused are still ongoing. Aphrodite’s trilogy focuses heavily on what comes next for the Pantheon after the boss battle in Iron Queen, and Persephone plays a major role in the Aphrodite’s trilogy. She even narrates a few chapters in Venus Rising. The ending of Venus Rising for sure will have an impact on Persephone’s future, so she will certainly appear in Artemis’s trilogy, possibly even as a POV character somewhere down the line.
The fourth of July isn’t until tomorrow, but we’ve been celebrating all weekend here. I’ll be back to my regular blogging schedule on Wednesday. For now, enjoy the fireworks!
Dads deserve more than a day. Remember to call your dad this weekend and do something special. If you are a dad, take it easy and make wonderful memories (after you call your dad).
For those of you missing your father this fathers day, do something happy that makes you think of him.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Today is a day to take a moment and remember the soldiers who never made it home. To think of their families, and to show our gratitude.
It’s also a day to celebrate our freedom and the wonderful lives we have built on those brave soldier’s sacrifice. I’m spending the day with my family. How are you spending the weekend?
Today is my daughter’s very last day of the first grade. Man, time flies.
P.S Persephone is still on sale for 99 cents! Please spread the word.
Moms deserve more than a day. Remember to call your mom this weekend and do something special. If you are a mom, take it easy and make wonderful memories (after you call your mom and do something special).
For those of you missing your mother this mothers day, do something happy that makes you think of her.
Have a great weekend everyone!
My daughter’s school actually does a whole thing for May Day, so I’m off to go enjoy that. May everyone’s day be festive and fun.

I hesitated to write this blog, because everyone knows authors aren’t supposed to wax too political, less they risk alienating their audience. But then I thought of something. Every single one of my books feature kick-ass goddesses fighting a Pantheon built on rape culture. Regardless of your political affiliation, if you enjoyed those stories, if they resonated with you, then you should understand #whyImarch.
I’m marching because because I have a daughter that deserves to be more than a statistic. I’m marching because I’m raising her in a country where the attitude of “boys will be boys” has gotten so out of hand that judges are more worried about ruining the lives of rapists than protecting their victims. I’m marching because somewhere along the way, admitting to sexual assault stopped being political suicide. I’m marching because women are ridiculed for every choice we make from coffee to careers to number of children. There is not a single choice we can make that is not attacked, and I’m tired of it.
I’m marching because #repealthe19th was an actual hashtag used in this election.
I’m marching because despite all of the above, I’m still coming from a fairly privileged position, and I have a responsibility to use my voice to demand fair treatment for all. I’m marching because words have power. They build our society, challenge our ideals, and create meaning.
There is something wrong with the way this culture treats women, but until people acknowledge that fact and treat it as a solvable problem instead of an acceptable inevitability, nothing will change.
I’m marching because there’s a power to solidarity. Masses of people coming together for the same cause have a tendency to get stuff done. They are estimating that over three-hundred thousand people will be attending the march in D.C alone, and there are sister marches all over the country. Maybe if we scream loud enough, we can finally shatter that ceiling.
