Prophecy: Book 1 in Antigone: The True Story

I am happy to announce that Prophecy is almost ready to be published!!!! Prophecy is book one in the Antigone: The True Story series, a young adult mythological fiction. I’m almost done editing and am working on all of the millions of details that need to happen in order to actually publish the book — formatting, back cover text, deciding to go KDP Select or not, getting ISBN’s, …. The list gets longer the more I think about it.

Here is a draft of my back cover copy to give you a taste of what the book is about:

Sixteen year old Princess Antigone, daughter of the infamous ancient Greek king, Oedipus, wants to lead a normal life and serve the gods, her city, and her family, but finds that fate has other plans. The Olympian gods bless her, the snakes talk to her, her parents want her to marry a foreign prince, her embroidery looks like burial shrouds for dogs, and she has fallen in love with the wrong boy.
When the mysterious prophecies surrounding her family are revealed, Antigone must choose where her allegiance lies — with the gods who have betrayed her family but who she is obliged to serve? With her plague ridden city? With her family which lay in ruins? Or even with herself?
In Prophecy, book one of the Antigone: The True Story series, honour and scandal collide and the truth of history is far stranger than the fiction of myth.
