Nashville: The Mood (Part 1)

Is Nashville simply Music City? The capital of Tennessee? Or is it something else? A state of mind? A dreamlike landscape? A world of happiness, ordinariness, hypocrisy, vicious gossip, and political skulduggery? Where politics, religion, sex, and crime cross paths in such a way as to be almost indistinguishable?

Her days were spent tending to the fields of wheat, watching over the herd of sheep, and dancing along the banks of the salt-river which ran through the center of her beautiful sprawling village. Every dawn brought new blessings from the Sky Father above.But The Striker, god of storms and change, could have a callous streak. With each passing year the salt-river grew ever wider, dividing their town into halves. And there were those who whispered that this was just a harbinger of a greater ill to come ...* * *Black Sea Deluge is the first book in my short story series set in the Black Sea region during the Copper Age - around 5,600 BC. The stories retell the Noah Flood myth from a historical perspective. These short stories are about 15 pages each. The Noah Flood series contains no violence, no swearing, and no intimacy, so they are suitable for teens and up. You can read the books one-by-one as they are released, or you can read the boxed sets. The boxed sets are compiled immediately after reaching each 10-book milestone. It's your choice! Some readers enjoy giving feedback as I write while others would rather binge-read in blocks.Half of all author's proceeds benefit battered women's shelters.
