Hi y’all! Thanks for stopping by the blog. Indie authors need people like you and your support 🙂 Today we will be taking a deeper look into my up-coming book A Muse in Manhattan.
I have been obsessed with movies my whole life. It started out with all the Disney ones (psst- wasn’t Hercules great?!) and then it evolved from there. Watching the classics with my grandparents was so very special to my heart. The King and I, Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, South Pacific, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers just to list a few. Though the movies of today are incredible, they just can’t hold a flame to the old goodies.
The premise of this book came to me while re-watching one of my favs, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Audrey is spectacular in it and her character is just a very flighty and complicated girl trying to find herself.
A Muse in Manhattan is only the beginning of the series because there are A LOT of Gods and Goddesses. And Thalia is Patient Zero of the repercussion on Mount Olympus from Pandora’s box being opened ages ago. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
The Stars of Destiny are an entity I created in the world I built that are above the Gods. As in, they are not really in Greek Mythology or lore. The books are told in an omniscient point of view because the Stars of Destiny are the narrators. They want to tell the stories they have witnessed through the ages before they expire, like all beings tend to do.
Why Breakfast at Tiffany’s? To me, the movie is SO iconic that it deserved another mention. And My character, Thalia, is obsessed too. The Stars of Destiny send her on an odyssey to New York city in order to put her heart back together. She thinks, if Tiffany’s could help Holly Golightly feel better, then it was a good a place as any for her to start. Picture a Muse dressing up as Audrey, only she wears a backless toga instead of a gown and she has natural purple streaks in her hair.
I am excited to dive into different aspects of the book in the weeks to come before it releases on Amazon and Kindle. Thank you for joining me!
