BOOK TOUR: The Goddess Series by MW Muse


Thanks to Book Monster Promotions for hosting this blog tour. I have MW Muse here today talking about her Goddess Series and giving away LOTS of goodies! Let's give her a warm welcome! :-)

*****************************

Hi, ya’ll! I want to thank the peeps with Buffy's Ramblings for having me here today. :) This is my first official tour celebrating the books in this series since I’ve been so busy trying to get these out as quickly as I can, so I’m going to make it worth your time to join in the fun.

The Goddess Series is about a teenage girl who discovers on her seventeenth birthday that her mother hadn’t died all those years ago, but that she is actually a Greek Goddess and Legacy is changing into one, too. Each book in this series follows Legacy through obstacles she experiences over the next year of her life, leading up to her eighteenth birthday and her final ascension...or supposed ascension. Along the way she is discovers love, betrayal, heartache, friendship, and answers to questions she never knew ever existed. This series took me years to craft the storyline (I worked full time and also wrote other books), but how did it get started? A dream.

No really. An actual dream. I will say that I knew I wanted to write a story about a strong female lead, but I hadn’t discovered who she was yet. In fact, one of the elements in the first couple of books is recurring dreams Legacy has about weather. The truth is these were all my dreams… some with no details changed at all. These were just random dreams I’ve had, but I can tell you about two recurring dreams I’ve had in my life. When I was little, I used to dream I lived in a green mushroom land (more olive colored). I lived in a mushroom house and peed on a mushroom toilet. When I woke up from the dream, I’d peed my bed. Eventually, when I’d start to have this dream, I’d wake up when I got to the mushroom toilet and that’s how I stopped peeing in the bed. I was probably a fan of the Smurfs back then, but I can’t explain the green color and not blue. But whatever the reason, it worked. Of course, I don’t have this dream anymore, and if I did, I’d probably wake-up gasping and running for the bathroom before I embarrassed myself.

But the one dream I have that is still recurring is about tornados. My mom loves to analyze dreams. She once told me it was about being stressed out, and of course she was right. When I was really stressed out, I’d dream about tornados. Still do every once in a while, but not so much anymore. Maybe it was my constant dream of tornados that made me want Legacy to be a natural goddess and have weather abilities. If it was either that or the mushroom land, I’d probably have copyright issues with the Smurfs…hmmm… or Strawberry Shortcake. LOL!

What about you? Do you have a recurring dream or a story you want to tell about a dream you’ve had? C’mon… I told you peed the bed! One commenter will win their choice of an ebook from this series!

About the Author
M.W. Muse is an award-winning, bestselling author...under a different name.

Goddess Legacy - Book 1

Legacy Kore is an average seventeen year old with your basic insane crush on the hottest guy in school... rather Adin Shepard was the hottest guy in school before he graduated a couple of weeks ago. Now it’s summer vacation and she’s not sure when she’ll get to see him again. Until he shows up at her surprise seventeenth birthday party. Cue saliva glands--it’s time to drool.

But her giddiness is cut short when her guardian delivers an emotional blow, telling Legacy her mother hadn’t died when she was baby, but that she’d left for Legacy’s protection all those years ago. After the initial shock, she expects some story about how her mother was in the Witness Protection Program or something else just as crazy, but when she’s told that her mother is a Greek Goddess and that Legacy is changing into one too, she thinks her guardian needs a trip to a mental hospital. Legacy a goddess? Um, yeah. Right. And her BFF is the Easter Bunny.

While trying to make sense out of something that was impossible to believe, Adin asks Legacy out on a date. She is thrilled that her fantasy might become a reality, but when she meets the new guy in town, River, she discovers everything isn’t always as it seems, and the legacy she wants just might not be the legacy she is destined to have.

Goddess Secret - Book 2

Legacy only thought she had this goddess thing under control. Well, as much as any other chick could have given the crazy circumstances. But when she learns the truth about her abilities, she is forced to keep a secret so powerful that she and the people closest to her could get hurt if it falls into the wrong hands.

Then there’s Venus, the goddess Adin is bonded to. And River, the god Legacy is bonded to. Do Legacy and Adin have a chance at a real relationship or are these external factors going to pull them apart? It won’t stop them from trying…or letting things heat up between them as they explore the boundaries of their relationship. Where’s the fun in just focusing on her ascension? Nothing wrong with having fun with her boyfriend.

As long as she keeps her secret…

Goddess Sacrifice - Book 3

Legacy wouldn’t let a little thing like changing into a goddess distract her from the joys of her senior year in high school...or hanging with her friends. She enjoys the dances and parties and getting closer to Adin...even trying her hand at seducing him. She’s ready to take their relationship to the next level, regardless of any bond she might have with River and any bond Adin has with Venus.

But the prophecy is still there, lurking in the background. And while Legacy is wrapped up with living her life in the now, forces are at work solidifying her future. With the damage done and the full meaning of the prophecy exposed, she’ll be forced to face the consequences...and protecting those she loves compels her to make the greatest sacrifice.

Goddess Revenge - Book 4

Hell hath no fury like a goddess scorned… at least that’s the way Legacy sees it. Her dreams collide into a message she did not want to acknowledge, but the implication ignites within her hotter than the knowledge of the betrayal itself. The only thing to do to cure getting mad? Getting even. And oh boy, she is going to get even!

Legacy dives into a betrayal of her own making as she teaches her lesson. But can she deliver her punishment without losing her true self in the process, or will the bitter feeling of keeping her enemy close backfire and propel her down a road she never dreamed she’d travel?

One thing’s for certain—revenge doesn’t come without a price.

Coming Soon! Goddess Bared - Book 5

The consequences of her actions are too much. Legacy was warned what would happen, but she thought she could outsmart it. She was wrong. How can she pick up the pieces of her life when all she now has is a void existence? The life she wanted...gone. Her heart has been ripped out, leaving her soul bared. The prophecy she’s been battling from the beginning has finally come true. And everything hurts.

She never dreamed facing her legacy would be this devastating.

Legacy has known all along that everything happens for a reason. She’s been told that from practically everybody. She must find the strength to reach the stage of acceptance and move on with her life. Gods, why did things have to be this way?

But learning to accept the truth might be easier than she thinks. Her life has been filled with warnings, and one of those is that not everything is as it seems. Maybe there’s a reason that warning had come from Adin...

  1. Love your Dreams!! My dream that I have all the time is about high school..now, I have been out of high school, for let's say, quite a while...however, this dream is about me walking in the hallwalls and I'm either trying to find someone that knows what my next class is, or if they can help me find my locker because I forgot where that was too...I'm panicked in the dream, and always wake up with a ton of anxiety...and no one seems to help me...maybe because this did happen..a couple times i got in the wrong locker..and my high school was small, only having 46 kids in our graduating class!! if you can help me descipher this dream, that would be great!! Because it still haunts me to this day!!

  2. Sounds like you already kinda know what it means... you're anxious about something. I'll channel my mom here (because she's always analyzing my dreams): I picture her saying something like, "seeing a locker in your dreams represents something you've kept hidden. When you can't find that locker (or find it but can't open it), you might be unsure of where you stand on something... maybe insecure about something you've kept hidden. She'd probably also ask about the contents of the locker if you get it open... and if you actually see the numbers on your lock, what those numbers are. There are people who analyze dreams based on what numbers appear in them, where the sum of the numbers equals 0-9. For example in Goddess Legacy, she dreams of the numbers 1887, which represents the number 6. 1+8+8+7 = 24; 2+4 = 6. That number represents harmony among my mental, emotional, and spiritual states when I dreamed it. Of course, I am in no way qualified to tell you what they mean... just passing along things my mom would say to me under the same circumstances. LOL! :)
