If I sell 1 more copy of For I Am Zeus, it'll be my first book to sell 100 copies...it's on sale for 99¢, so if you like #Greekmythology and/or comedy, I hope you'll check it out! : )

https://www.amazon.com/Am-Zeus-Collection-Plays-Mythology-ebook/dp/B0085H0MH6/

Here's an excerpt:

APHRODITE: Can we change the subject? We haven’t talked about me in minutes!
ZEUS: Not everyone is as interested in you as you are.
APHRODITE: Well, they should be…I’m fascinating!
ZEUS (sarcastically): Oh, yeah, listening to you talk about your hair care regimen is riveting…
APHRODITE: Then you’ll love when I tell you about how I keep my skin looking so youthful.
ZEUS: No! That will make me want to kill myself…and I can’t, so that’s just mean.
APHRODITE: Fine, then ask me another speed dating question.
ZEUS: What are you most proud of?
APHRODITE: My body. It’s amazing, right?
ZEUS (rolling his eyes): I know you have a better answer, Medusa.
MEDUSA: I’m proud of the fact that even though I’m hideous on the outside, I managed to stay beautiful on the inside.
APHRODITE: Inner beauty is so overrated. No one can see it, so it’s like it isn’t even real.
MEDUSA: It’s real, Aphrodite. If you weren’t so shallow, maybe you could see that being a good person is much more important than being good-looking.
APHRODITE: You are not making any sense right now.

The Godly Acres #Indiegogo campaign is live! I'm paying for the flights to L.A. and ten days in a hotel (which are pretty expensive) myself, but I could really use some help raising money to pay my awesome cast, feed the cast and crew, and buy any props and costumes we still need. If you contribute, there are some great perks you can get, and if you can't donate but would still like to help us reach our goal, please share the Indiegogo link on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Thanks so much! : )
Oh, and make sure you watch the video to hear a song I wrote about Greek gods and watch me try to act. ; )

Story
Tagline
Playwright with a twisted sense of humor
Introduction
I'm a playwright from Charleston, SC who has written dozens of short plays, two musicals, and one full-length play. My plays have been performed in Maryland, New York, Los Angeles, and France, and my influences include Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Conan O'Brien, Sarah Silverman, Steve Martin, and Tina Fey. I'm the author of For I Am Zeus: A Collection of Plays About Greek Mythology, Never Trust an Angel and Other Plays, Goat Herpes and Other Problems, and Paranormal Jokes and Haiku. I also run a paranormal blog (http://paranormalcrystal.blogspot.com/). : )
Bragging rights
My play Godly Acres was performed as part of the Fourth Annual Chester Horn Short Play Festival in New York City (2009) and the Acts on the Edge short play festival at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica, CA (2010). For I Am Zeus: A Collection of Plays About Greek Mythology was voted the best comedy book of 2012 in the Turning the Pages Book of the Year contest.
