Book excerpt: Bestselling poet, writer, and Instagram sensation Nikita Gill returns with a collection of poetry and prose retelling the legends of the Goddesses, both great and small, in their own words.

In pieces that burn with empathy and admiration for these women, Gill unearths the power and glory of the very foundations of mythology and culture that have been too-often ignored or pushed aside. Complete with beautiful hand-drawn illustrations, Gill's poetry and stories weave old and forgotten tales of might and love into an empowering collection for the modern woman.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Enjoy Captivating Stories of the Gods, Goddesses, Monsters, and Mortals From what we know of history, Egypt, along with Sumer, were the foundations of civilization. The Fertile Crescent, which stretched from the Nile Valley to the twin rivers in Mesopotamia, gave us our earliest glimpse of organized man. But organized how? For one, both locations gave us writing-hieroglyphics in Egypt and cuneiform in Sumer. There is still some debate about who was first. In this book, we will start by looking at the gods and goddesses of Kemet-Ancient Egypt. Then, we will turn our attention to the monsters which likely gave them nightmares and humbled them in their quest to bring order to the world around them.Finally, we will look at the mortals which shaped their civilization and made Egypt the bedrock of our own history. Though Egypt today is only a third-world nation, struggling with terrorism and poverty, their heritage remains vital to the understanding of who we are as a species. Just some of the topics covered in this book include: Osiris, Isis, Seth, and Horus The Sun and Creation Gods and Humans Apep: Great Snake of Chaos Sett: God of Desert, Storms, War, Evil, and Chaos Imhotep, the 27th Century BC Polymath Akhenaten, the King Who Upended Tradition Ramesses the Great Cleopatra, End of an Epoch And Much More Get the book now and learn more about Egyptian Mythology
