CHRISTMAS IN JULY! Blog Event (Song of the Muses Anthology in its entirety)

July 23: Christmas in July! Blog Event (Participating Bloggers listed to the right)

I hope you had a blast the last nine days visiting the muses of inspiration from The Song of the Muses Anthology. Before I go any further yesterday’s winner is…Jane!!! Congratulations! Please contact me at Skypurington@live.com to collect your prize.

Today’s post serves two purposes. The first, a brief recap of the nine authors in The Song of the Muses Anthology. The second, I get to show off the three book covers that will make up the anthology when it all comes together in print. (In October!!!) I’m excited, can you tell? Hee hee.

Yes, you'll have to scroll down through all of our blurbs and covers to find out what you have to do to win today. Wide grin. Aren't I a pain?


When the muse of writing, Calliope, challenges Zeus to end her immortal existence, she faces the reality of death in Hades. Only Jake Genoese, an archaeologist's soul, can outwit Zeus's Harpies and help her find new purpose. Far more is at stake when both realize they are no more than pawns for ANCIENT MUSINGS.

Melpomene, Muse of Tragedy, risks everything to save Rowan Stewart’s life. Devoted to Scotland in life and the God of War in death, Rowan struggles to understand her undying devotion to him. Can a melodramatic Grecian Goddess and a resolute Scotsman truly love one another? Find out in HIGHLAND MUSE.

Hades, Zeus, Hestia and the chaos of a forgotten memory, Eutrepe hurries to fulfill her quest to unlock the buried words to complete Ceris' unfinished song. Their bond forged the night she's almost killed, Ceris must venture to the underworld to save her and bring them both into DESTINY'S LIGHT.


Urania, Muse of astronomy, despairs: invention rules; creativity has disappeared. Then she meets Daniel Kettering. But his research threatens time, space, and every existing world. His choice: forget science, get eternal life – or else. But first, they must save the universe, defeat Chaos, and find happiness in THE BRIGHTEST HEAVEN.

A love cut short, burns eternally bright. Beyond Hades domain and perilous encounters, two mortals fight to discover their passion. Will their untried bond endure? Can the Muse of Love overcome the destructive power of one Gods revenge, and right the wrongs of history? Only ERATO’S TEARS will determine.

The task assigned to Terpsichore, Muse of Dance, appears simple enough - to restore a love of dancing, to the Celts. However, all is not as it seems. Danger follows. Legends are threatened; and she did not mean to lose her heart , or have to save the man she loves by DANCING WITH FATE


Cursed for mocking Aphrodite, the goddess of love, Clio, Muse of History and her lover are thrust back in time to the Salem witch trials and then the Italian Renaissance. Only love can save them both, but is it enough? Is their love A LOVE BEYOND TIME?

Dispatching her favorite messenger to deliver laughter to a dying man, Thalia, the Muse of Comedy, faces down ancient curses and a vengeful Immortal bent on watching generations suffer. She'd rather be shoe-shopping! Luckily for Thalia, the God of War’s only weakness is Comedy’s greatest ally! NO FUNNY STUFF here!

Thrust through time to the dark ages of Ireland, Hymnia, muse of glorious praise, finds Dacien, the Laird of Castle Lugh, anything but god-like. She uncovers the mystery of the disappearing women of the castle, but loses her heart to the very person she suspects is the killer, in THE VICTORY OF LUGH.



All you need to do today to win a chance at the prize, a Celtic CD called Dance Upon the Shore, is leave a comment telling me who the father of these nine glorious muses of inspiration is! Either you know it, have to scroll back through the past nine posts (which all cover the muses) or you have to hit Google. Grin, I considered having you list the mother but decided to be kind! Just list Dad’s name.



Thanks so much for playing!

According to Hesiod, Zeus is their father (and Mnemosyne, goddess of memory, is their mother). Thanks!
