Product description:
Lady MacBeth kill herself? Please. And Portia—you don’t think someone that intelligent would be pissed to be bait and trophy? And Juliet, well, Juliet just wants to have—sex..

Soliloquies: the lady doth indeed protest, by poet chris wind, is a collection of soliloquies delivered by Juliet, Ophelia, Lady MacBeth, Portia, Kate, Desdemona, Regan, Isabella, Marina, Miranda – protesting the role given to them by Shakespeare.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

Exquisite poetry.  Fresh audition pieces. Feminist analysis of Shakespeare.  

Q: Why did you go indie?
This collection is perfect for ebook only format because of its length.  No established publisher would consider it, for that reason.  Even though the pieces have, in fact, been performed.  (Most recently at Venus Theatre in Laurel, Maryland.)
And I wanted a quick way to get these in the hands of actresses everywhere!

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
T.S.Eliot, Adrienne Rich, Leonard Cohen, Dorothy Livesay, Sylvia Plath.
Oh, and maybe Shakespeare.
