Change is inevitable, nothing is more constant than change, so says Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, who stated “change is the only constant in life.” And it’s true, we just have to see how much the world has changed due to COVID. It will be recorded in history, as will the after-effects that will linger in years to come. We are already experiencing a number of these now, the spikes in the economy, be it housing, shares coupled with the downturn of businesses and individuals losing their jobs. Sound a bit familiar? The Great Depression rebooted 2.0.
I know I cheated the last two months by combining July and August, but in my defence, I ran out of time! I am (fingers crossed) hoping to keep up with my goals for the remainder of the year.
The Guardian’s Legacy is now available to buy.
A gripping story of an ancient cover up, a dangerous legacy and, the search for the most powerful object in the world: a three-thousand-year old coin.
The disappearance of an old man, fanatical neo-Nazis, and the hunt by Interpol, thrust Nikolaos Zosimos, a high school teacher, into a world of intrigue and suspicion.
Nikolaos leads an uncomplicated life until he receives a cryptic phone message from his grandfather, Iasos. He hurries to his grandfather’s finding him relaxed and pleased to see him. A few beers later, Nikolaos leaves his grandfather’s place, stupefied and astounded. Iasos has a secret, one that dates back to the time of Herakles.
But that was just a myth, wasn’t it? And why does a small coin demand such secrecy?

Nik visits his grandfather, Iasos, one afternoon who reveals in a conversation a family legacy dating back when heroes such as Herakles and tragic femme fatales, Helen of Sparta, lived and breathed. Nik is convinced his grandfather has the onset of dementia, until he does some research on the coin. What he finds changes his opinion of his grandfather’s revelation.
In The Guardian’s Legacy (eBook published 5 October 2021) will Nik join the ancient succession of guardians and become part of the legacy?
One magical coin can change a life. Two can change the world.
Throughout his life, he thought his grandfather was an academic with a passion for ancient history and family history. That is until he realises Iasos’s existence and experiences was anything but simple and understated. Nik is confounded as he learns more about the origin of his family’s legacy and commitment to keeping it a secret for the past three thousand years.
And how did Hitler know about the coin? Nik is about to discover that secrets are hazardous to one’s health.

I am really late for my goals update and thought it best to combine the last two months!
I am quietly freaking out. For a number of reasons.
June, named after the Roman goddess Juno, adopted from her Greek counterpart, Hera. Apparently, it is considered good luck to get hitched in the month of June, as Hera/Juno are the goddess of marriage and of the home. A little trivia for you.
Half way through the year already… incredible. The year is zooming by, and again, I am late with my goals!
This article is for Alex J. Cavanaugh’s The Insecure Writer’s Support Group.
The goal of the support group is to share doubts and concerns, and reassure other writers who have struggled by offering assistance and guidance.
The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group Day where we post our thoughts on doubts and the fears and how we triumphed. There are other bloggers listed who share their writing journey and I encourage you to check them out.
I am reaching out to the amazing followers of my blog and the bloggersphere for help and support in the promotion of my upcoming book launch. A number of weeks back, I wrote a blog post about the publication of my book The Goddess’s Legacy, book 1 in the Coin of Time series.
