Myron Edwardsabout this book: Is Aphrodite, the goddess of love, the one to save Cyprus!
One man thinks so and that man is Myron Edwards (60) for in his book The Mistress of the Rock he reveals a secret that is more tangible than the Da Vinci Code, or the phenomenon's of UFO's, Ghosts, Sasquatch's and the Loch Ness Monster, because the phenomenon that he describes in his fictional book based upon a chance discovery he made some twenty odd years ago, one that stayed with him and one he could not ignore.
Settling on the island of Cyprus in early 2004 Edwards took to writing the story, first in screen play format, and into a book, picked up by Nicosia Publisher Power Publishing who published the book not just in English but in Greek as well.
Once the book was out in the public domain Edwards found several film companies wanting to make the movie based on his story. Pre production started and an investor stepped forward to fund the movie, but he later turned out to be a charlatan. Then the recession hit Cyprus and investors dried up.
The recent crisis has catapulted Cyprus into the headlines and Edward's believes now is the right time for the secret of Aphrodite's Rock to be unleashed the public domain. He hopes to publicise this book to create enough attention to draw in would be movie investors.
There is no doubting that Greek movies and films are big business Mama Mia, 300, My Big Fat Greek Wedding all massive box office successes and Edwards believes The Mistress of the Rock has the potential to be just as big. Certainly his secret and that of the way he interrupts it in his book make for an exhilarating adventure which eclipses both modern and ancient themes, and provokes intriguing challenges for the hero Richard Cole.
Whilst the book and film are the catalyst to this story the real potential for a Cypriot revival lies in the legend of the goddess herself, as this secret validates the ancient text and myth that the goddess did come from the foam to set foot on the island of Cyprus, it is those footsteps that this story traces and provides a tantalising question for the reader "Do you believe."
