    1) The Model Hero: Perseus
    Could there be a hero more virtuous than Perseus? A model of chivalry, he rescued his future bride, Andromeda, from a monster and his mother from a lecherous and powerful king. A brave and resourceful adventurer, he ranks among the greatest monster-slayers of classical mythology. A paragon of fidelity—one of the rarest virtues seen in Greek and Roman myths—Perseus remained true to Andromeda throughout their marriage. A beloved king, he not only ruled Tiryns for many years, but founded the neighboring city of Mycenae and fortified Midea as well. Little wonder, then, that Homer called Perseus the “most renowned of all men.”

    2) Paranormal Romance

    3) 4 Books in Current Release; 5th book to be released August, 2010; 1 story in The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2
    08/09

    4) Coming in 2011 – a brand new trilogy!
    Beginning in January with EARL OF DARKNESS follow one family’s struggle to stop a madman from bringing King Arthur back from the dead as part of a plot to instigate a war between Other and Mortal.

    1. Theseus: Befitting Athens, a city renowned for its thinkers, Theseus, the chief hero of Athenian legends, was known more for his quick wit than his strength, and his brain rather than his brawn. The cleverness of Theseus made him—along with such heroes as Heracles, Perseus, and Odysseus—one of the great monster-slayers of classical mythology.

    Theseus earned a reputation not only for his daring and intelligence, but also for his fairness. An early king of Athens, he was one of the first rulers to reform the government in the direction of democracy. As both a king and an adventurer, he defended the oppressed and consistently fought for the ideal of justice.

    1) Who is your favorite Hero (we’re talking Greek myth here, folks) and why? Hector of Troy. According to Wikipedia: “He is one of the greatest warriors and he is not only known for his courage but also for his noble and courtly nature. Indeed Homer places Hector as the very noblest of all the heroes in the Iliad: he is both peace-loving and brave, thoughtful as well as bold, a good son, husband and father, and totally without darker motives.”

    2) What is author Kari Thomas’s favorite genre? Paranormal Romance

    3) How many books are (currently) in Larissa Ione’s Demonica series? 4 books have been released and the 5th book is to be released in August 2010

    4) Alix Rickloff has a new series starting in January 2011. What’s the title of the first book, and what’s the book about? It’s called EARL OF DARKNESS described as a story which “follows one family’s struggle to stop a madman from bringing King Arthur back from the dead as part of a plot to instigate a war between Other and Mortal.”

    1. My favorite hero is Odysseus who was the one who came up with the idea of the Trojan Horse. He was also one of the few Greeks to reach his homeland of Ithaca, after 10 years of war and 10 years of troubles at sea. He’s my favorite because he made it through several obstacles while headed home.

    2. Paranormal Romance

    3. There are presently 4 books and 1 book due out August of 2010.

    4. Beginning in January 2011 with EARL OF DARKNESS follow one family’s struggle to stop a madman from bringing King Arthur back from the dead as part of a plot to instigate a war between Other and Mortal.

    1. My favorite hero has always been Hercules. Even though Hera always had it out for him, he persevered. He was tasked with the twelve labors that lesser heroes never would have been able to accomplish and he did them all. Of course, Perseus is a close second. lol

    2. Kari Thomas’s favorite genre is Paranormal Romance.

    3. Larissa Ione’s Demonica series currently has 4 books out with the fifth one due for release on August 24, 2010.

    4. The first book in Alix Rickloff’s new series is Earl of Darkness. It is about one family’s struggle to prevent a madman from bringing King Arthur back from the dead to start a war between Other and Mortal.
