Othello by C.E. Wilson Giveaway

Title: Othello (Shakespeare for Everyone Else #2)
Author: C.E. Wilson
Date of Publication: December 23, 2013


Shakespeare's work features some of the most memorable stories and
characters ever created, yet for too many curious readers the
combination of ultra-dense dialogue and unfamiliar historical settings
make tackling the Bard's work something between a tedious chore and a
confusing mess of bird-bolts and quondam carpet-mongers.

While it's nearly impossible to replicate or improve on these works,
it is (thanks to their timeless nature) possible to make them more
accessible to a wider audience.

In this Young Adult retelling of one of William Shakespeare's most
memorable plays, join C.E. Wilson as she breathes new life into
Othello, the second book in her series Shakespeare for Everyone Else.

When Archer decides that he's had enough of Orion and Devony running
what he thought was going to be his school he takes desperate measures
to ruin everything. Through lies and betrayal, deceit and deception,
Archer will stop at nothing to get what he wants, and he doesn't care
whose lives he has to destroy in the process.

Can anyone stop one of William Shakespeare's most villainous
characters in this YA retelling of the epic tragedy of Othello?

  1. What inspired you to write a modern version of Shakespeare? I know various authors do such to bring more interest to a classic, but I am curious if there is any special reason or inspiration for it.
