The Awakening of Agnostos
OK, I will totally admit it; I am shamelessly promoting my very dear friend’s book! Now, please hear me out before dismissing my post…
First, IT’S A GREAT STORY! I love Greek mythology and Jenn and Nick add new twists to timeless classics! Second, SHE’S MY VERY DEAR FRIEND! Wouldn’t you do the same for your dear friend? Third, THIS BOOK IS CO-AUTHORED BY A MOTHER/SON DUO! I think that statement speaks for itself, plus Nick is AMAZING! And lastly, it is the latest publication from the fabulous WRITE MORE PUBLICATIONS!
Without further ado, I would like to give you a little background about this wonderful book and the amazing co-authors!
A little about the premise…
Synopsis: Zeus is at it again and his latest trollop, Hecate, the Goddess of Magic, pays the price. Hera, Zeus’ wife, banishes her to Agnostos—The Triangle of the Unknown—the only place on earth where the gods of Olympus have no power. Once imprisoned, Hecate stumbles upon a gateway to the center of the earth, and uses her discovery to bargain her way out of Agnostos. But the night after the Council meeting to decide Hecates fate, Athena is visited by a Titan who reveals the real story of the mysterious portal hidden beneath the waters of Agnostos. A god more powerful than the Olympians await them at the Earth’s core. To maintain their status as supreme rulers of Olympus, five gods must enter the abyss and fight this unknown god. Can the gods of Olympus learn to work together and save the Earth?
A little about the authors…
Jennifer Paquette, a native New Yorker, has maintained an expansive and varied career, beginning in Advertising at American Express to Practice Manager for a plastic surgeon, not to mention being a full time mom in between. Her passion has always been writing, and she has been telling and writing stories as long as she can remember, with her Greek heritage allowing her to sneak in a bit of comedy and tragedy in every tale. Now with two teenage sons, Jennifer is excited to focus more on creative writing in both the fiction and non-fiction genre.
In her debut novel, “The Awakening of Agnostos”, published by Write More Publications, and written with her teenage son, Nicholas Perrotti, the reader is led to the mysterious depths of the earth in a collaborative effort to contain a particularly unruly exiled goddess. The authors have articulated the gods and goddesses into a riveting tale to explain a modern day phenomenon. The twelve Olympians grace the pages, as well as some other not so familiar favorites from traditional myths. “The Awakening of Agnostos” is the first in the Myths of the Olympians series, and sets the stage for upcoming fictional tales based on the ever-popular Greek mythology.
Jennifer has also published several short stories, articles and essays and has a vault of works in progress, including a memoir with her mother, a medical thriller, and a tell-all about the college application process.
Mother and son reside on the upper west side of Manhattan. Nicholas will begin his junior year at Stuyvesant High School in the fall. “The Awakening of Agnostos” is now available in both ebook and paperback through Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Smashwords. They hope you enjoy this very special story.
