A GODDESS HELL BENT ON A COMEBACK.
A MORTAL NOT GIVING IN.
A FACEOFF WITH THE GREATEST PRIZE: TRUE LOVE
Internationally published contemporary shaman Robin Rice writes a tale to touch every woman who has ever felt not good enough, not pretty enough, not tall and thin enough, not... ENOUGH.
What do you do when your best is never good enough?
When the man you adore doesn't know you exist?
When the goddess Venus promises to teach you everything she knows about life and love with only one small catch--one of you will be dead by morning?
After the death of her beloved best friend and 18 months of trying to "find herself," Sydney goes to bed with a desperate plea to any god or goddess listening to help her wake up to a whole new kind of day.
In this fascinating romp between the mundane world and the realms of the gods, what begins as a fun little bargain to nab a hot guy soon becomes a race to the death with a winner-takes-all finish line. Who will walk into her own version of happily ever after... a has-been Goddess or an ordinary woman who dares rise to the challenge of redefining beauty on her own terms?
If you loved Paulo Coehlo's The Alchemist, Lyn Andrews Medicine Woman, Carlos Castanada's The Teachings Of Don Juan, Richard Bach's Illusions, and Richard Matheson's Somewhere in Time, you'll be mesmerized by Robin Rice's Venus For A Day.

International Kudos For Robin's Work:
"Robin Rice is whatever we need her to be. I see her most affectively as a visionary, a mastermind. She can go into groups of people and move the entire group forward. She can revolutionize a trend and take it in a much more meaningful direction. Big mind. Brilliant thinker. Problem solver. A light not of this world, lighting this world. With global reach." -McCall E, Utah.
"Robin's voice is an incredible vehicle. The music is so compelling. She has the ability to make people focus inward and listen just by speaking. Her tone is important--I don't enjoy anything preachy, lecture-y, or ominous. I appreciate optimism, positivity, humor, and issues I can relate to. Robin always offers that." -Terry N, Arlington, Virginia
"Fun, funny, and transformational, a book for every woman who has ever looked in the mirror and wondered 'Am I loveable?' Classical mythology with a postmodern twist. A thoroughly captivating and adventurous tale of a woman's search for love and meaning." -Susan Dobra, Editor, Natural Beauty and Health Magazine
"A page turning and humorous romp that is also a powerful excavation of what it means to be a woman in a mans world. How beautiful that the once logical Sydney risks it all to follow the only path she can--the path of her heart." -Lori Ann Lothian, Editor, Looking Deeper Magazine
