Get a Whore for 50% Off


'Tis Pity She's a Whore is a lesser known work of Elizabethan Drama than other works by Shakespeare and Marlowe -- possibly because it is not, technically, actually Elizabethan drama but Jacobean. Still, its style is considered more on par with the weirdness of Queen Elizabeth's reign than the snooty crap that came later.

See, the story of 'Tis Pity She's a Whore is all about a love story. Between a brother and sister. Yes, a ROMANTIC love story -- like Romeo and Juliet except that instead of two opposing households, the reason everyone's against their love is they're already related to one another. Of course, like Romeo and Juliet, everything ends tragically for the lovers after the (anti)heroine Annabella is obliged to marry someone else (in this case, because she's already pregnant by her brother.) In fact it almost reads like a parody of Romeo and Juliet, with everything turned on its head -- and a big bloody climax to finish everything off. There's a reason the cover features a bloody heart with dagger though it -- that's not a metaphor, kids.

Good news is right now, you can get the bloody heart edition of 'Tis Pity She's a Whore for 50% off from Createspace only (the book is also available at Amazon.com but, as of this writing, only at full price.) To take advantage of the Createspace deal, use the super-secret code 5ALKRQS2
