THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT BOXES WHICH I FIND INTRIGUING . . .
I have always been fascinated by the symbolic nature of locked boxes. What do they hold?
In the Greek Mythology of Hesiod's Works and Days, since this was written so very long ago, people have even questioned if the item in that Greek tale was a box or a jar. It could have been either.
So a very talented artist, Dante Gabriel Rossetti decided that he would consider the writer meant a box and so he put this in his painting of the old story.
In that classical Greek story, a very beautiful woman opens a box in a very innocent gesture which releases all of the evils in the World. Only one thing remains in the box, HOPE. And when the tale ends, the box is closed with only this one keepsake remaining.
In my own story about a box which has been hidden away for some time, the very handsome and mysterious, Damon, has a box containing things from the past. Only he knows what is in the box and why it was hidden. Can he really understand what revealing even some of its contents now might do?
I believe that life is complex and the motives of a Vampire might add to the complexity of the act which could still be shrouded in mystery.
Damon's Wicked Little Magic Box is now available on Kindle Worlds, Amazon, under The Vampire Diaries: Damon's Wicked Little Magic Box.
I would like to hear from my readers what they might think Damon's motives were and if they were secretly very wicked indeed..
LOOK INSIDE, PLEASE DO!
