Author's Notes

Sage gfishbone

Greg R. Fishbone
Greg R. Fishbone, Author in Residence at Mythoversal, is releasing his young adult mythic fantasy, BECOMING HERCULES, as a weekly serial on Kindle Vella. This diverse coming-of-age drama shares its ancient roots with the Percy Jackson series, Song of Achilles, and Lore Olympus.

  Retelling the Iliad in its original setting with a format that allows a deeper exploration of the characters and their motivations. A good idea or something totally unnecessary? Let me know in the comments!
