I like interacting with people on Twitter. It’s fun! One day, I tweeted this image:
And then, one of my all time favorite authors, Kaitlin Bevis, responded, offering to answer those questions for her characters. Of course, I thought about the offer for a few minutes before calmly telling her that I would be interested in such a response (READ: I screamed, and immediately started frantically tweeting back about how unbelievably happy that would make me, all while hyperventilating.). Kaitlin Bevis is the author of the Daughters of Zeus series, a retelling of the Persephone myth in modern day. Read my reviews of her books here: Persephone, Daughter of the Earth and Sky, The Iron Queen. Her books star the most wonderful interpretations of the Persephone and Hades that I have ever read, and in fact I’m kinda in love with Hades. He’s freaking amazing.
Her responses are as follows (He/Him means Hades, She/Her means Persephone)
Needless to say, I was kinda overjoyed. I’m kinda really obsessed with her characters. (Fangirl moment: Did you catch that part about her maybe writing a short story about Persephone and Hades’ anniversary?!?!?!?!) If you haven’t yet read her books, I highly recommend you do. They’re fabulous. But, unfortunately, they’re only currently available in e-book format, which is sad.
So, that’s fabulous news! Because these books would do FABULOUS if sold in bookstores and at libraries. They already do quite well from what I can tell, but I think they could really get a major fanbase if they were more widely available. I can’t wait! :D
Kaitlin was also the reason I fell in love with airplants. Persephone wears one on a necklace 24/7. I started out with one necklace. But now I have 20 little airplants all over my house. I love them. <3
So, there you go! Make sure to buy Kaitlin’s kindle books HERE.
