Release Tour Kickoff - Genesis: A Soul Savers Novella
Because Genesis takes place in Greece at around 200 B.C., we'll be exploring various aspects of the time - fashion, food, beliefs, culture, society, etc. and how they tie into the book.
I had a lot of fun and learned quite a bit while researching for this story and am excited to share the tidbits I found. Of course, Genesis is just a novella and a work of fiction, so we're barely scratching the surface on the tour and in the book. But hopefully you'll learn something new and have fun along the way.
The Ancient Greeks celebrated most events with festivals and I thought about calling this tour a "festival" but there's just one problem - women generally were not permitted to attend festivals. Men had all the fun! Their festivals could last a day or a week and included lots of food, drink and merriment. That part hasn't changed much, right? Thank goodness we women can now celebrate, too!
this interesting visit from Jordan and Eris, two characters from the novella). And, as I said, lots of prizes, including Soul Savers swag, ebooks and a Grand Prize of signed books, swag and other goodies. For more details on the tour, visit the tour page.
Up for grabs now: Soul Savers Swag Pack. Just comment below to be entered by either sharing something you already know about Ancient or Hellenic Greece or asking a question about something you'd like to know. Be sure to include an email address so we can contact you if you win! Don't forget that your comments here (and on each stop) gain you entries for the Grand Prize, too.
Good luck! Have fun!
