Steena Holmes is having a Logline Blogfest in preparation for Authoress Anonymous’ December Auction. I’m posting my logline and welcoming you, no… expecting you to rip it to shreds!

Here goes:

When her father dies, Hatshepsut is forced to marry her hippo of a half-brother to secure his royal claim as Pharaoh. Then she does the unthinkable: she, a woman, proclaims herself Pharaoh of Egypt. Amid foreign wars and a palace coup, tormented by her love of a commoner and cursed with personal tragedies, Hatshepsut must choose between her own happiness and the chance of eternal glory.
