Cleopatra’s Needle by Carole Lanham
THERE ARE MONSTERS IN THIS WORLD, I’VE LEARNED, AND SOMETIMES I HAVE FALLEN PREY TO THEM AND SOMETIMES I HAVE BEEN ONE…
When Lilabet last saw Iago, they were ten years old. Whisked off to America by his father in a desperate attempt to escape the dark superstitions of Wales, Iago’s letters have been the single thing to connect them. Now, fourteen years have passed and Iago has asked Lilabet to be his bride.
Eager to begin a modern life in an exciting new land with the man she has loved for all her days, Lilabet is about to discover that black magic may find a home on any shore. Three red-haired witches have been playing a deadly game of revenge with Iago and if she wants to have a life with him, Lilabet will first have to fight the dark forces that have claimed her young husband for their own.

Today I am happy to have Nicole Thorn on my blog.
What book are you promoting right now? What is it about?
The book I’m promoting right now is called Bring Me to Life. It’s about a girl who wanted to be a witch, so she decided to do a spell with her friends that ended up killing her. The spell gave her and her friends magic, and they used it to rip her soul out of hell and put it back in her body. But her soul belonged to hell, so an assassin gets sent to kill her again.
Tell us about your writing process. How do you fuel your writing?
My process is mostly trying not to take too many breaks to play Candy Crush and failing miserably. I write best at night, so I just try and get through the day so I can work properly. Read more
Hello R.K. I am thrilled to have you on my blog today.
What book are you promoting right now? I am currently promoting my book Just Under the Sky. It is a magical realism text that follows two best friends through a mystical forest.
How did you come up with the idea for your current story? I’m not sure exactly how I came up with the idea behind my current projects. I take my dog for a walk and by the time I get home something just clicks. I think it is impossible to have writer’s block if you have a dog.
Tell us about your writing process. How do you fuel your writing? As I said before I like to take my dog for long walks. Other than that, I just established a daily routine. I treat writing like I would any other job, so even if I am not exactly feeling it on any given day, I force myself to at least put words on the page.
What’s the best part of being a writer? Being able to earn a living doing what I love. It makes life so much easier when my occupation doubles as what makes me happy. It also makes working late into the night very easy. Read more

Here’s the synopsis:
A hidden prophecy. A chosen princess who speaks with snakes. A family duty.
Sixteen year old Princess Antigone, daughter of the infamous ancient Greek King Oedipus, wants to lead a normal life and fulfill her duty to the gods, her city, and her family, but 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 and devastating 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, Antigone steps out of the shadows of the past to tell her own story, a story where truth of history is stranger than the fiction of myth.
