A Last Venus/Aphrodite Figure

We’ve celebratedVenusfig the many faces of Aphrodite as part of the buildup to the release of my first erotic romance story. Her Teddy Bare is a short story in the Aphrodite’s Island series which will be released on May 6th (Read a blurb and excerpt by clicking the cover on the left.)

The last Aphrodite is actually a Venus figure. It’s over 30.000 years old and not as beautiful as most we have seen the last two weeks.  The many Venus figures from Western Europe are some of the earliest art found with the oldest being around 40,000 years old. The purpose could be religious, apotropaic (good luck figure), or for fertility. Read more about it and creating scifi/fantasy worlds today at my new group blog, Worlds of the Imagination HERE.

Tomorrow, The search for Aphrodite’s Island begins.
