Book Tour: Bright's Passion @writerblack

Title: Bright’s Passion
Author: E.B. Black
Genre: Fantasy Romance

Bright wishes he wasn't the god of the suns.
Every day is the same: he makes the suns rise and then they set. He looks down at humanity's corruption. He watches wars, people starving, and thieves stealing.
He can't help. Every time he tries, the humans take something from him. They've destroyed his family and he has no doubt that they'd like to destroy him, too.
Adonya is a raven-haired witch with powers that make her as close to a goddess as a human can be. He's wondered what it was like to be with a woman, but all the goddesses are dead.
He can feel it when he touches her--she's as dangerous as all the rest of the humans. Can the power of love join their races together? Or will one of them wind up dead in the end?

E.B. Black is the annoying author who lives in the head of a nerdy housewife named Elizabeth. Elizabeth tries to live out her days by walking her dog, spending time with her husband, doing housework, and watching television, but E.B. Black makes her drop everything to type out weird fantasy stories. Elizabeth is asking anyone who read this to please send help.

My husband and I are proud geeks. We met years ago when I sat in on a game of Dungeons and Dragons. We play video games together and go to Comic Con whenever we can. 

Which is why my favorite mythology isn’t greek mythology or Egyptian or Norse. It’s the mythology we’ve created now: comic books. Some comic books have a direct correlation to mythology like Thor with Norse mythology and Wonder Woman with Greek mythology. Others are less obvious, like Superman and the way he’s like a modern day Hercules. Because telling tales didn’t end with the ancients, we continue to create fantastic stories to this day. 

I think one of the greatest things about mythology is that they are stories we have passed down. They are stories that can stand the test of time. We tell them over and over again, each time in a new and different way. Each time we try to improve upon them How many times have you seen a Batman movie? Or the origins of Spiderman on screen? Comic books take the same story and retell it to all of us, until it’s a story we know by heart, until it’s something that we love. 

I have a book series where I rewrite greek mythology. It’s called the Fate of Eros series. I believe that we are meant to retell myths every day and that the way we choose to retell them says a lot about the person telling the story and society as a whole.
