Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Mything You by Greta Buckle

New Adult
Date Published: 10/24/12

He wasn't looking for love. He only wanted to prove he was worthy of being a king's son.
Adventurer Theseus had dreamed of meeting his father, King Aegeus. As Theseus journeys to Athens, he meets his match in strength along the way. But is it the will of a beautiful young princess that puts this strong young man finally at his mercy? Or will he be able to conquer the princess’s heart?
She had settled for a life of unhappiness and believed a man who would love her for herself was only in her dreams.
Princess Ari has followed her father’s dictates all her life. On her way to meet her bridegroom, she is attacked. Saved by a handsome adventurer, Theseus, she tempts fate and follows him on his journey to Athens. Being with Theseus opens up a whole new world of opportunity for her. But will she allow her heart or loyal duty choose her life for her?


Greta Buckle grew up in Irish Catholic Boston before moving to the Miami sun. She’s worked in engineering, then became a lawyer. After realizing she hates clients, she became a high school teacher. Teaching is fun, but writing is a passion. She wrote one hundred and one fan fiction stories online before deciding to transition into writing her own stories. Never ask her to republish her fan stories from age eleven- horribly written stories of princesses. Greta dreams of writing professionally, where her barista can make her coffee and a walk on the beach, can motivate her tales. Theseus story came to her when she was a freshman in high school as her English teacher, the nun, told her how life was hard and tragedy teaches lessons. Greta’s love of writing has kept her centered and focused. How is she crazy? The voices in her head are characters in novels and she’s not insane.

Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
I do see writing as a career and it’s a career I want.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
Editting. The devil is in the detail. The fun part is telling the story. The hard work begins after the story is done. Not going to lie. I do not have an eye for details and I’m a big picture person. Telling the stories is the fun part, and the hardest part is chopping up the sentence structure, even though you received an ‘A’ in grammar. I know what I say in my head, and it’s supposed to be on screen.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
I wish my mother read my writing. She loves me and supports me, but I wish for my family. Other people who helped though, are the many people I thanked. My local writing community in South Florida is my center. Sheena, Edi, Ody are all local writers who I meet regularly with. And I do love my Florida Romance Writers group. They are an amazing group!

#4 – What is next for your writing?
I sent my other series to my editor which takes Greek Myths to the modern era. It’s so fun. And with Theseus, I set up a sequel. I’m in the midst of writing the story about Haemon and Antigone. My contemporary series is related to retelling the myths of the past. I wrote the contemporaries first, and the first one in the series is with my awesome editor, Brittiany Koren.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
Do I have addictions? Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! Star Wars, and count me in the excited that Disney bought them grouping. Science Fiction shows in general. I have books on my to be read file. I used to be an avid reader, but I’m writing in November for Nanowrimo. Next month, I’m sure I’ll read a friend’s book.

This or That?

#1 - iPd or Mp3?
MP3s are easier to manipulate.

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla?
Can I have both? If I must choose Chocolate!

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries?
I’m Irish Catholic. The potato is important. If I’m going to my mom’s to eat though, I want mashed. With a burger fries, making me particular with the main course I guess.

#4 – Comedy or Drama?
Comedy. I wish they made more romantic comedies. I miss Sandra Bullock movies.

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks?
Danielle Steel out of these two, but honestly, neither are my go too. Victoria Dahl, Jennifer Cruisie are my must reads. Steel’s early I hear is amazing, and Sparks kills off his people.

#6 – Fantasy or Reality?
Fantasy. Truth is my reality is pretty upbeat and prefer being an optimist.

#7 – Call or Text?
Call me. If you are giving directions, texts. But I don’t want to type out essays to my friends and get multiple texts back. It’s easier to call.

#8 – Public School or Home School?
Public School. We’re losing the ability to socialize in the computer age. I’m wishing we had more face to face time as we learn from each other.

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate
Coffee wakes me up, but hot chocolate is delicious. For everyday purposes, coffee.

#10 – eBook or Paperback?
I read more with my eBooks, but I love print books. I tend to do both, but lately the ebook has been winning due to convenience.
