Aphrodite Made Me Do It

Bestselling and award-winning author Trista Mateer takes an imaginative approach to self-care in this new poetry and prose collection, Aphrodite Made Me Do It. In this empowering retelling, she uses the mythology of the goddess to weave a common thread through the past and present. By the end of this book, Aphrodite make you believe in the possibility of your own healing.


“Fierce, magical, and empowering.” — Amanda Lovelace, author of the princess saves herself in this one

Aphrodite Made Me Do It is a gentle scream from outside of your window. It is a reminder that it’s okay to let the light come in, but only when you are ready. You will find grace between these pages and a little sadness, too – the kind that makes flowers grow in all of the places you need them most. To hold these words is to understand what color feels like through every season. It is honest, like rain. It is brave, like forgiveness.” — Wilder, author of Nocturnal
