Talking About Serial... Books

Athena’s Oracle by J.D. Brown

Hi, I’m J.D. Brown, your guest author for the day (or night). I’d like to invite you all to check out my online book serial Athena’s Oracle.

What’s a book serial? It’s a book that is published in small chunks, such as one chapter at time. This unique format (once popular in the 1800s) allows the reader the rare experience of enjoying the story as it is being created by the author. A daunting task for me, but very cool for you!

A new chapter of Athena’s Oracle is posted every month on my blog, completely free to the public, and will continue to do so until the story reaches its conclusion.

About Athena’s Oracle:

Leena’s ‘gift of sight’ secures her place as the next great oracle of Athena. Instead of being groomed for wifehood like other girls, Leena spends her days within the walls of the Acropolis, shuffled around by the clergy and doomed to be a virgin forever. Before her ascension, Leena decides to take matters into her own hands. With the help of her father’s book of alchemy, she casts an incantation calling forth her own personal hero. But when that hero turns out to be a rogue vampyre prince with a haunted past, Leena begins to question if her feelings for him are the work of divine intervention, or a love spell gone horribly wrong.

Athena’s Oracle is a prequel to the novels
Dark Heirloom and Dark Liaison, also by J.D. Brown. Set in 4th century B.C.E., Athena’s Oracle chronicles the romance between Leena and Jalmari during the very early trials of their immortal lives.
