Kudos For Robin's Writing:
“I… L-O-V-E… LOVE Robin's books!!! I read ‘A Hundred Ways to Sunday' because it was gifted to me. It sat on a shelf for a while (until I was really ready for it, I suppose). When I finally picked it up…I couldn't put it down!! I immediately ordered Venus for a Day & Do-Overs after and I devoured them as well. The stories are all so wonderful and really give the reader the ability to be in them with the character! I've shared them with many people and they are some of my favorite fiction books EVER! I usually don't read fiction but these novels inspired me & taught me new things about myself. Truly awesome writing worth sharing over & over & over again!” -Leslie Stein, Lead Like A Girl
“Each of Robin's books have appeared in my life just as I have needed them, helping guide me through the toughest times. Call them serendipity or more accurately call them ‘gifts.' Her books speak to you in an honest, true, and heartfelt way – like your oldest, dearest, closest, wisest, tell-it-like it-is friend who, while never pretending to be perfect herself, touches your truth, heart, and soul in a gentle, kind, healing, and nurturing way. Her books become friends to the reader.” -Carolyn Bentley
“I translated one of Robin's books into German some years ago. Amazing lessons and compelling reading! Reading it at least twice is a must so as not to miss the many small details that may well escape your attention the first time round.” -Ulrike Kraemer
“Must reads! All of them. Once you begin though, be prepared to clear your schedule until you reach the final sentence… and then find yourself wanting to read EVERYTHING she writes! Each word is precise and the stories are all about living this life to its fullest while following your heart… What's so beautiful about it is that ‘you' the reader are so immersed in the lives of the characters their lessons become yours.” -Wendy Elwell
Venus For A Day
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.

Meet The Characters:
Mayden—She’s 16, daughter of a very rich father in his late 50′s and a bombshell, 32-year-old stepmother (her third). She doesn’t know exactly who she is, and she’d rather be rejected for reasons she understands than reasons she doesn’t. She’s super smart, but not bookish; pretty but not typically beautiful; anti-social but very socially aware. She’s dying for something interesting to happen. She will soon meet both Josh and Michael, and both will fall for her. But who will she fall for? Scottie is her beloved cat. But what animal spirit is she truly related to?
Anna—She’s 88, and though they look nothing alike, considers herself the “twin” of Bea. She’s been in a nursing home an endless 2 years because her daughter, Helene, put her there. The official diagnosis is that she has Alzheimer’s. In reality, prescription drugs are keeping her insane. When she goes out into the woods, she comes alive for brief moments. Deep inside, she’s related to the spirit of the mountain lion.
Josh—He’s 17, the grandson of Helene and great grandson of Anna. He’s rash, handsome, angry, and as yet unable to control his shapeshifting (so he must stay with Bea, away from the world, until he learns). Mayden is the first girl he’s seen in years, and it doesn’t take him long to know what he wants. His spirit family is that of the leopard.
Michael—He’s 17, the great-grandson of Bea. His mother died at childbirth, and until recently, he’s been raised in European boarding schools. Now living with his father, he is eager to get to know his maternal great-grandmother, especially if she can explain the magical events that keep happening to him. His old girlfriend in Italy keeps texting him, but Mayden is far more interesting. Who can say what animal spirit family he will be related to, once he reaches the age that Bea will allow him to learn the magical ways in which a person can find out?
Rod—one of Mayden’s two closest friends from childhood…but does he want more than friendship now that she’s so much more grown up?
Helene—She’s 64, the wealthy daughter of Anna and the niece of Bea. She’s Mayden’s father’s “silent” business partner. She knows all about her mother’s magical world, and will do anything to keep her from it. Her grandson, Josh, is already lost to the magic, and for this she will never forgive Anna or Bea. She knows the animal spirit family she’s related to, but rejects it completely and will never tell a soul.
Bea—She’s 88, born on the same day of the same year as Anna. They have different mothers (Bea’s mother part Italian, part Indian, while Anna’s mother was from the Old Wealth East Cost of the United States), but they share the same father. Long ago, there were rumors a third sister was born that same day. Bea’s grandaughter died giving birth to her great-grandson Michael. Bea promised her that Michael would not learn to “shapeshift” into his spirit animal until he was old enough to decide for himself about living a magical life. Bea lives on land owned by the government with Josh, and her magic helps them hide who they really are. Her spirit family is the black panther.
