The Palace of Knossos would have to be one of the most amazing ancient sites I was fortunate to see. Built around 2000 BCE, and the largest of structures on Crete, it was the main power and pivotal centre of Minoan culture. The first palaces (Knossos, Mallia, Phaistos, Hagia Triada and Zakro) were destroyed by an earthquake circa 1730 BCE and rebuilt around 1650 BCE. The palaces withstood a series of earthquakes, and it wasn’t until the cataclysmic volcanic eruption at Thera and subsequent invasion of the Mycenaeans, that saw the demise of these extraordinary people and culture.
Do you ever stop and think about all the work you do is starting to pay off? It has been a slow and gradual growth. Though nothing happens unless you work hard and long hours. Don’t get me wrong, there is still a long, and I mean long way to go just yet before I see the fruits of my labour.
I have been doubly blessed by the amazing reviews written by Scott Whitmore Things That Cross My Mind and Carrie Slager The Mad Reviewer. These reviewers are amazing and extremely busy people and I for one, am grateful to them. It takes time not only to read stories but also to sit and write reviews. I am just branching out in writing reviews and it is not easy.
I would also like to take the time to thank Nicole McManus Ariesgrl Book Reviews. She read and reviewed Aphrodite’s Curse and posted a fantastic review.
