Venus For A Day Awaits!
“Brilliant…funny, engaging, relevant, and deeply entertaining. An inspired example of transformative storytelling…a ‘must read’…” –Denise M. Baddour, Producer, Discovery Channel
From The Back Jacket:
A goddess hell bent on a comeback.
A mortal not giving in.
A faceoff with the greatest prize: True Love
A tale to touch every woman who has ever felt not good enough, not pretty enough, not tall and thin enough, not… ENOUGH.
What do you do when your best is never good enough? When the man you adore doesn’t know you exist? When the goddess Venus promises to teach you everything she knows about life and love with only one small catch—one of you will be dead by morning?
After the death of her beloved best friend and 18 months of trying to “find herself,” Sydney goes to bed with a desperate plea to any god or goddess listening to help her wake up to a whole new kind of day.
In this fascinating romp between the mundane world and the realms of the gods, what begins as a fun little bargain to nab a hot guy soon becomes a race to the death with a winner-takes-all finish line. Who will walk into her own version of happily ever after… a has-been Goddess or an ordinary woman who dares rise to the challenge of redefining beauty on her own terms?
