Stories from the Muses

The book is an anthology by 14 authors (including Mer :) who write from archetypal muse energies.


Their flavor and expression is unique to each of us, but we all have within us a child, maiden, mother, seductress, huntress, crone and medusa (or their male counterparts). They are the psychic building blocks of our universal human experience. And writing from them is the ride of a lifetime.


The technique comes from Method Writing taught by Jules Swales, who provides guidance throughout, to help writers become better at their craft.

There is adult content in the book.


All profits will be used to help other writers, who have a strong story to share, but can't afford to publish. 


Read Mer's Medusa muse piece, The Demons Will Fall, about making peace with anger.
