Pantheons and Promo

First and foremost, I have to brag briefly, then I promise delve into sexy gods.NightmareInk

My urban fantasy NIGHTMARE INK came out on Tuesday.  I’m in the midst of a month long blog tour. You can win a copy of the book by visiting a blog or two and leaving a comment. The easiest way to keep track is to follow me on Twitter (@marcellaburnard) I’ll post links every day. Rest assured, I’m too socially awkward to be very noisy on Twitter. 😀 If you’d like to know a little more about the book before committing to a blog comment, have a look at Penguin’s site.

On to sexy gods and/or pantheons!

Egyptian. Let me qualify that lest you imagine I have some repressed beast-headed god kink. I love the Egyptian pantheon and not just because it rose up as my patron pantheon as I was being initiated into Wicca. Since I was training in a Celtic tradition, the Egyptian thing was a big surprise.

Thing is, I’m into the intellectuals and the Egyptian pantheon is chock full. Thoth, Osiris, Horus, even Set is pretty brainy if a tad twisted. I confess, though, that one of the reasons I love this pantheon so very much is that the goddesses are equals of the gods. They are as fierce and as powerful. That’s part of what’s so attractive to me. Gods who are seducing goddesses who are their equals – there’s so much more intellectual interplay and that’s sexy.

Besides. The Egyptian gods wore eyeliner. What’s not to like? 😀
