Product description:
Thus Saith Eve is a collection of epistles, each written from the point of view of one of the women from The Bible, as if she had a contemporary feminist consciousness.  For example, Eve does not accept blame for choosing the apple, for choosing knowledge over obedience.  And you can imagine what Noah’s wife had to say about his grand idea.
Other women present are Lilith, Abel, Cain's wife, Noah's wife, Hagar, Zipporah, 'the certain woman', Delilah, Eshta, Ruth, the Queen of Sheba, Vashti, Judith, Mary the mother of God, Mary of Bethany, Mary Magdalen, Thecla, and Satan.
Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
The feminist criticism of The Bible that is implicit in the pieces.  Also, the pieces make great audition monologues.
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.
And I wanted a quick way to get these in the hands of actresses everywhere!
Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
Elizabeth Cady Stanton .
