New Story Release
THIS MONTH IN HISTORY: On August 21, 1911, a thief walked out of the Louvre Museum with Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa hidden under his smock. This year marks the 109th anniversary of the theft of Mona Lisa.
The Eyes of Mona Lisa
If the entries in her great-great-great-grandmother's diary are true, twenty-year-old Lanea will see the future if she gazes into the eyes of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. When a special exhibit of the famed painting arrives at the National Gallery of Art in D.C., Lanea brings her best friend along on her quest to see if the visions are true, and what they may foretell.
A short story featured in The Masters Reimagined Vol. 2 anthology
About The Masters Reimagined Vol. 2
In The Masters Reimagined 2, eight authors unite under the inspiration of classic works of art. Masters like Leonard da Vinci, Edvard Munch, Franz Marc, Theodore Gericault, Jacques-Louis David, George Adolphus Storey, and Michael Pacher inspired the authors in their quest to reinterpret, reinvent, and reshape selected visual arts in story form through speculative twists and turns. This is the fifth project by the Alvarium Experiment, a consortium of accomplished and award-winning authors.
Stories are $0.99 each in the Kindle Store. Each story is self-contained and can be read in any order. The book description will explain the setting for each particular story.
Stories and authors are:
The Eyes of Mona Lisa by Bria Burton
The Scream by Charles A. Cornell
Oil and Hemlock by Kristin Durfee
Storey's Orphans by Veronica H. Hart
