Book Blitz! Excerpt & Giveaway of Othello by C.E. Wilson

Othello (Shakespeare for Everyone Else, #2) by C.E. Wilson
Genre: Young Adult (Romance)
Date Published: 2013
Publisher: Self

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?

Praise for the first book Much Ado About Nothing in new YA series, Shakespeare for Everyone Else:

“If you’re a fan of Shakespeare, I say, give this a go. And even if you have attempted Shakespeare, but haven’t been able to get past the language, pick up this edition and enjoy.” ~The Turning Pages~

“I definitely recommend this to all the Shakespeare lovers, especially if you're a young adult yourself, or really enjoy reading YA books.” ~Angelic Reviews~

“The writing is beautiful, as C.E. Wilson was able to keep the poetic tone of the story. My love for YA stories has been restored!” ~NWA Gossip Girl~

Orion’s eyes widened. “I’m…I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to imply—”

“Imply? You didn’t imply anything! You said it straight out! Can you just forget what I told you? If this is how you’re going to act then I wish that I never said anything! Orion, I don’t think she’s cheating on you, I just thought you should know what I saw between her and Micah!”

“I know! I get it, I get it,” Orion said. “I’m sorry. I know what you’re doing, Archer. I really don’t think that Devony would cheat on me, let alone with Micah but damn, I can’t get these thoughts out of my head. I need to know if there’s a way to prove this. Even if she might still be faithful, I can’t convince myself of that fact. Your words…” he trailed off, looking at his tray, “…poisoned me.”

“That was never my intention,” Archer said. “Look, I’m sorry about what I said. Is there anything I can do?”
