Book Blitz & Giveaway! Othello (Shakespeare for Everyone Else #2) by C.E. Wilson

Release Date: 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.

“Stop!” Roderick said. “I don’t want to hear about it. If you’re so miserable being his treasurer then quit. Who cares, you know? You’ve already been rejected—”

“So then I’ll have a rep as a quitter? Give me a break, I’ll stick it out. I wasn’t raised to give up when things get shitty. Besides, with me serving under him, I’m pretty sure I’m at an advantage. Orion trusts me – he doesn’t know how my mind works. He thinks I’m perfectly okay being passed over for Micah but he has no idea I’m against him. At the end of the day, I will serve my post well,” he said sarcastically while giving a mock salute. “I care about the school and I care about my reputation, but let me tell you this, Roderick. I’m not the friendly nice guy everyone thinks I am.”

Roderick lifted up his head, looking at his friend curiously. “If Orion really believes you’re working for him then he’s stupider than he looks. But what are we going to do about him dating Devony? How am I supposed to land her for myself if she’s actually with him?”

“I have an idea.”


Book One: Much Ado About Nothing (Shakespeare for Everyone Else #1)

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 iconic plays, join C.E. Wilson as she breathes new life into Much Ado About Nothing, the first in her series 
Shakespeare for Everyone Else.

Two couples.

Clark and Heaven.

Beatriz and Bennett.

After years of friendship Clark decides that his senior year is the time to finally profess his love to his long-time crush Heaven; a sweet and simple girl who her father knows to be loyal, trustworthy and caring. She returns Clark’s love because, like him, she has also seen her feelings blossom over time. Theirs is a cute love that differs a bit from the other couple in the play.

Beatriz and Bennett at first glance seem to want nothing to do with the other. Every conversation, every remark is a withering attack which reveals their lost history and similarities. It’s not long before their friends hatch a plan to set them up because everyone is convinced they still love and care for one another. Will either of them be able to resist the strong attraction between them?
As these two couples try to make it through their senior year, their friend Donnie does what he can to keep the group happy. The problem lies in Donnie’s half-brother Jason who wants nothing more than to spoil the fun – even at the cost of Heaven’s reputation.

When both couples are pushed to the limits, whose love will endure?

Find out in this modern retelling of Shakespeare’s memorable play Much Ado About Nothing.
