A Public Service Announcement

A Public Service Annoucement

Two definitions from

Arachne – noun Classical Mythology
A Lydian woman who challenged Athena to a weaving contest and was changed into a spider for her presumption.

Myth – noun
Fictitious story, often ancient.

Sometimes myth holds a glimmer of fact. In Arachne’s case, a woman was changed into a spider. Fact. Her name was Arachne. Fact. She was Lydian. This is where fact becomes muddled with myth, but that’s not important here.

What is important is that humans presume that if something cannot be proven, it’s a myth. Humans also believe that everything on this planet is here for their consumption, to use and dispose of as they please, no matter the consequence. What will happen to humans for their presumption?

Be warned
Arachne is not a myth and her descendants are tired of being stomped on. 

One more thing. Bug spray? Yeah, it won’t help you. Sometimes, however, the consequences of our presumptions may be the only thing that can save us.

  1. Sounds interesting and intriguing!

  2. Spiders are just kinda plain old creepy anyway. Sounds like a terrific premise!

    1. Hi Laura,

      Plain? Old? I'm not so sure. Creepy? Definitely. lol :) Thank you for the compliment.

  3. Wow, this sounds creepy -- in a good way! Great cover, too!

  4. That's enough to give a girl nightmares.

    1. Hi Erin,

      I had a duty to warn the public. Now that you know what is in store, you can be better prepared. Good luck! :)

  5. I love myths! But um, spiders creep me out, this won't scare me will it? ;)

    1. Hi Ansha!

      Nah. It's not scary. Creepy? Maybe. ;) PS -- I love your name.

  6. "Bug spray? Yeah, it won’t help you." lol! I love that line. I love the sound of this book.

  7. *shiver* I HATE SPIDERS!! But even "I" want to read this book. Is it going to give me nightmares?
