The Gatekeeper’s Bride Is 99 cents, and Hunting Prometheus Can Be Preordered!

To celebrate the upcoming release of Hunting Prometheus: A Gatekeeper’s Spin-Off, Book Two, which is now available for pre-order, we’ve put The Gatekeeper’s Bride: A Prequel to The Gatekeeper’s Saga on sale for 99 cents for the first time ever and for only this month.

First, grab your copy of The Gatekeeper’s Bride:

Unrest brews among gods and mortals alike when Hades makes a deal with the Fates to end his loneliness in the Underworld. But when Persephone proposes to conspire with him in a plot against Demeter, things get out of hand.

Find out the truth of how Hades and Persephone met and fell in love and the impact it had on the rest of the pantheon in the throes of the Trojan War. Learn how their children came into being and why they were assigned their respective duties. Find out the real reason why the Olympians possessed such profound disdain for these Underworld gods.

“This series is addictive!”–Amazon Reviewer

Next, pre-order your copy of Hunting Prometheus, which releases on May 6th. How do you like the cover?

Hermie and Hestie never asked to be demigods. Unlike others of their kind, they aren’t interested in going on quests and being the center of a world-changing prophecy. But when Zeus learns of Apollo’s vision–of the twins finding Prometheus, Zeus’s number one enemy–the hunt for Prometheus begins. Zeus and his allies want to bind Prometheus and kill the twins before their threat of a revolution becomes a possibility. If Hermie and Hestie don’t find the Titan first, they have no chance of fulfilling their destiny or of surviving Zeus’s threat against them.

The Mystery House: San Antonio on Sale for 99 Cents!

“From the beginning, it was riveting.” –Maya Lai

instagram-mystery-house

From Amazon bestselling author Eva Pohler… (oh, yeah, that’s me 🙂

Ellen and her two best friends share a mid-life crisis by hatching a plan to renovate an 1860’s Greek revival in the nearby historic district of San Antonio. Although Ellen isn’t one to believe in ghosts, she comes face to face with something inexplicable in the attic. Her ghost-enthusiast friends convince her that they must help the spirit find closure, and as they dig deeper into the past, they uncover a shocking history that someone in the neighborhood doesn’t want exposed. But Ellen and her friends don’t give up easily. They realize they’ve been called to give voice to the invisible women who suffered behind the walls of the house for decades.

Only 99 cents for a limited time!

This novel was a blast to write. The three characters are loosely based on me and my two best friends, though I’ve cast us ten years older than we are in real life. The three of us really have discussed doing something adventurous, like flipping an old house, so I ran with the idea using my imagination.

After reading this book, some of my readers convinced me to turn it into a series. They said they loved the characters and want to see them in more novels. So I accepted the challenge and have written the second one, which releases on January 15 and is available for preorder. It’s called The Mystery House 2: Tulsa.

So the concept of this series is that the three friends will go around the country saving old, haunted buildings from the wrecking ball by restoring them to their original beauty and bringing peace to the ghosts that haunt them.

Changes to Text Subscription and #GreekGodsSpeak

As I prepare for the upcoming tax season and reflect over my business operation expenses, I see that my text subscription service has become cost prohibitive.

You’re also invited to keep your text subscription with me, which I will now use once a month to alert you to sales and new releases.

Medusa and The Ellen Show

Something really bizarre happened at Texas Teen Book Festival in Austin on October 1st.

Medusa Banner

Those of you who have met me at events know that I have a banner behind me with the Medusa on it. You also know that I ask people who come by my table if they’d like to pick a Medusa card. I created a deck based on the gods, goddesses, heroes, and mythological creatures from Greek mythology to use for pseudo tarot readings just for fun.

So this police officer approached the table. Anytime a police officer struts straight up to to me, the first thing I wonder is what have I done wrong. But this officer looked straight up at my Medusa banner and then showed me his arm. Minotaur FlashcardBeneath his sleeve was a beautiful tattoo of the Medusa with his daughter’s face on it.

Well, as amazing as his tattoo was, that wasn’t the bizarre part. As I do with everyone, I asked Officer Sexton if he would like to pick a card–just for fun, because I don’t really believe in that kind of thing, I said, as I always do.

So I was holding about 70 cards in my hand, face down, and only one of them was the Medusa.

Guess which one he picked.

MedusaYep. He picked the Medusa.

Now, maybe I DO believe in that kind of thing.

One more thing before I let you go…

Nicole Cassidy is a witch descended from the Greek gods… but she doesn’t know it until she moves to a new town and discovers a dangerous world of magic and monsters that she never knew existed.

When the Olympian Comet shoots through the sky for the first time in three thousand years, Nicole and four others — including mysterious bad-boy Blake — are gifted with elemental powers. But the comet has another effect — it opens the portal to another dimension that has imprisoned the Titans for centuries.

My name is Kaidance Monroe, and sometimes when I touch people, I see how they die. After I saw my little brother’s death but failed to stop it, my parents abandoned me to a juvenile detention facility. I don’t let people touch me anymore. Not my fingertips, not my skin, not my heart.

Just before I turned 18, I got a visit from a cute guy, who tricked me into giving up my secrets. He said I was special, but he wasn’t the only searching for me. I barely escaped with my life. Now I’m in a mansion, learning how to control my abilities – abilities so powerful, even the gods are jealous. I didn’t mean to make anyone fall for me. Certainly not my would-be killer. And I never imagined how far he would fall.

The Scarlet Thread is a dark fantasy romance for fans of Greek mythology and Gothic romance. Fans of Fallen and Percy Jackson will be captivated by this mashup of fallen angels and forgotten gods.

Before the age of seventeen the young men and women of Jerar are given a choice –follow tradition, or pursue a trial year in one of the realm’s three war schools to study as a soldier, knight or mage…

For 15-year-old Ryiah the choice has always been easy. Become a warrior and leave the boring confines of her lowborn life behind. Set to enroll in the School of Knighthood on the eve of her next birthday, plans suddenly shift when her twin brother discovers powers. Hoping that hers will soon follow, she enrolls with Alex at the Academy instead –the realm’s most notorious war school for those with magic.

Yet when she arrives Ry finds herself competing against friend and foe for one of the exalted apprenticeships. Every “first-year” is given a trial year to prove their worth –and no amount of hard work and drive will guarantee them a spot. It seems like everyone is rooting for her to fail –and first and foremost among them Prince Darren, the school prodigy who has done nothing but make life miserable since she arrived.

When an accidental encounter leads Ryiah and Darren to an unlikely friendship she is convinced nothing good will come of it. But the lines become blurred when she begins to improve –and soon she is a key competitor for the faction of Combat… Still, nothing is ever as it seems –and when the world comes crashing down around her, Ry is forced to place faith in the one thing she can believe in –herself. Will it be enough?

As a Runner for one of the underground syndicates that now controls the timewaves, Stassi 2446-89 has seen it all: the fall of Rome, the rise of Hitler, the end of democracy, the establishment of time tourism, and the devastating consequences of it.

But a seedier side of life lurks beneath the glamorous façade, and the pair quickly learns this run is more dangerous than any of their previous missions.

Because history isn’t playing out as it should be—a first for the syndicate. When the stakes are raised and it becomes a matter of life or death, Stassi and Gaige must ultimately decide how far they’re willing to go to ensure the future as they know it.
