The Gods' Day to Die

By David Welch, now available from Amazon in e-book, audio, and paperback.

Desmond Taylor--a free-spirited loner and heir to a family fortune--didn't mean to fall in love. But when he stumbles upon a beautiful archer deep in the wilderness, they begin an electrifying and wild romance like no other. To make matters even more complicated, the woman is the goddess Artemis.

Like her Mount Olympus kin, Artemis has walked among mortals for thousands of years. But Desmond and Artemis's isolated paradise is violently shattered when they're tracked down by the goddess Athena's insane mortal son: a man hell-bent on killing every last god.

Thrown into a fight to the death, Desmond finds himself traveling the globe at Artemis's side, dodging bullets and proving himself as a fighter. Now, the gods must come together to defend themselves--or risk dying violently at the hands of the psychopath who is hot on their heels. While they are skilled in battle, there are but a few gods left to fight the steady onslaught of mercenaries sent by their vicious nemesis. Can Desmond stop the massacre of the last immortals, or could this truly be the gods' day to die?

Welcome to KBoards, Or Welcome Back ;) OR Hi, glad you're still here. :D Congratulations on the book! :)

Much of what follows you should already be aware of, as it was included in the information you agreed to when you signed up. So please consider this to be just a friendly reminder. :) (The posting of this 'welcome letter' doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so we post this note in every thread. :) )

KBoards is a Fan forum for Readers, Writers and Kindle Lovers. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function or the Kboards bookmark tool available on each thread) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

The bad guys have money, access, numbers, and a brutal ex-KGB agent to lead them.  But the good guys have the God of War, the one 'God' who truly lives up to his reputation...

If all legends are based on a kernel of truth, what could possibly explain the Olympians?  And how can they possibly still be around and kicking today?  Science brigs legend to life in The Gods' Day To Die...

Come meet Dionysus, the bi-polar, depressive God of Wine.  He sleeps around, takes stupid risks, and has been self-medicating for going on four millennia.  Is there anything left to this wreck of a man?  Will he help his fellow immortals survive their pursuers, or just get in the way.  Find out for yourself in The Gods' Day To Die...

Athena, Goddess of Wisdom...but maybe not the Goddess of Common Sense.  When a past mistake catches up with her Athena finds herself in the hands of her mad son, the object of his violent obsession.  He wants her to die, but not before she watches all of her family meet their end at his hands.  Will Athena be forced to watch her family die one-by-one?  After thousands of years will she meet her death as nothing more than a madman's trophy?  Find out for yourself in The Gods' Day To Die...

Hera, 'Queen' of the Gods.  Long past her jealous stage, she has become the practical glue that holds together the few remaining Olympians.  A business woman of great skill, she bank-rolls the family and makes sure their 'identities' stay current and legit.  But now she finds herself taking care of two children who just lost their mother, and trying to keep Zeus centered as he watches his children die.  Her enemy has as many resources as she does, and far less compunction about breaking laws.  Will she be able to hold the family together?  Find out in THE GODS' DAY TO DIE...

Aphrodite, goddess of love, a legendary beauty who has finally found a measure of stability and happiness with Ares, the love of her life.  Forever concerned about her husband's dark past, the last thing she wants to see is the family drawn into a battle that might bring out his old ways.  Truly a lover, she finds herself being drawn more and more into a fight that can't be avoided in THE GODS' DAY TO DIE...

Zeus, the first immortal, the oldest of the Gods, the oldest human being alive.  With his infamous temper long cooled, Zeus spends his day raising his kids and enjoying the comforts of family.  It's a life that fits him, and has brought him satisfaction and happiness for many long centuries.  But now he's watching his children die, one-by-one.  Perhaps it's time for the world-shaking man of old to reemerge...see for yourself in THE GODS' DAY TO DIE.

Ares, the God of War, the most lethal human being to ever walk the planet...now a quiet man who only brings out the warrior within for a good reason.  And with his family's lives on the life, he has reason enough.  No single man poses much of a threat, but he faces odds that will press even his formidable skills.  Will he be able to rally his family, or will he just be the victim of THE GODS' DAY TO DIE...

Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt, the best shot in the business.  One of the most reserved of the Olympians, she hasn't seriously though about finding a partner for a century.  Now drawn into an irresistible romance with Desmond Taylor, she finds herself wondering if being around him is just putting the poor man at risk, given the ruthlessness of the people hunting her.  But she's not the type to give up something she loves just because its dangerous...

Desmond Taylor, God of...convoluted logical chains.  Okay, so he's not a God or an immortal or anything like that.  He's just a guy who fell in love with a woman who happened to be a Goddess, and he's not the type to run off just because some nut-job is gunning for her.  Guess he's old fashioned like that.  To what lengths will this quirky lone-wolf go to protect the first woman he's ever really loved?  Find out for yourself in THE GODS' DAY TO DIE...
