The second bit of excitement today is that it’s the final day of the Off the Beaten Path Blog tour. Today I’m featuring fellow contributor, Monica la Porta, who is not only a very talented writer, but was also generous enough with her time to help this poor English girl get all Luca’s Italian dialogue right in the Sky Song books, for which both me and Luca will be eternally grateful! Monica has penned the short story’ Home Wet Home’ for the Off the Beaten Path anthology as well as her own brilliant fantasy books, The Priest and Pax in the Land of Women.
You can find Monica all across the usual internet hang outs:
Mauricio is a slave. Like any man born on Ginecea, he is but a number for the pure breed women who rule over him with cruel hands. Imprisoned inside the Temple since birth, Mauricio has never been outside, never felt the warmth of the sun on his skin. He lives a life devoid of hopes and desires. Then one day, he hears Rosie sing. He risks everything for one look at her and his life is changed, forever. An impossible friendship blossoms into affection deemed sinful and perverted in a society where the only rightful union is between women. Love is born where only hate has roots and leads Mauricio to uncover a truth that could destroy Ginecea.
And don’t forget to enter the giveaway where you can win a bound copy of the anthology and Amazon gift cards.
