The Raven Witch of Corfu – episode 1 by Effrosyni Moschoudi
Genre Fantasy romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
A terrible evil lurks in the mountain…
Lizzie is not your average tourist. She may have just arrived on the idyllic Greek island of Corfu, but her mind is not on having a good time. Far from it, Lizzie has a daunting task to undertake: to claim back her twin brother who was kidnapped twenty years earlier on her previous visit. In a cave. By an evil witch.
When Lizzie sees her brother again, she receives the shock of her life. The witch has tricked her and won’t let them be…
Lizzie does her best to help her brother and do the witch’s bidding, too afraid of losing him again. New friends help them adjust and have some fun, and then love comes into her life to bring new hope. For the first time, it seems possible to fight off the witch. All she has to do now is trust enough…
Will she succeed? Will Corfu ever be again the perfect paradise she once knew?
“It’s a step up from Mills and Boon – much more Mary Stewart than Barbara Cartland, with a bit of Gothic horror and Harry Potter-esque magic in the mix. And it’s certainly a page-turner.” ~Hilary Whitton Paipeti, author of In the Footsteps of Lawrence Durrell and Gerald Durrell in Corfu”
This highly imaginative Greek fantasy romance will intrigue and uplift you, making it feel like you’re on the island, experiencing it all with your senses. It is also guaranteed to leave you longing for a visit to your closest Greek restaurant!
Why did you write this book?
The Corfiot village of Messonghi, where the book is set, is one of my favorite places. Tiny, quaint and evergreen, it seems like paradise on earth. I also have a strange affinity for the pyramid-shaped mountain that’s part of its coastal view. The mountain also featured in the first romance I wrote, The Ebb. In The Raven Witch of Corfu it is the place that hides the secret of the cave and the evil deeds of Phoni, the witch. It was my love for Messonghi that inspired the story one summer morning as I sat on the beach there and gazed at the mountain absentmindedly, as I often like to do. I have many readers, Brits mostly, who adore this part of the world like I do. I guess I wrote the book to please them, the way it pleases me to read it, now that it’s complete. It brings back the bliss of being there during the summer in sparkling colors…
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy many different genres but if I had to pick one, I’d say paranormal stories with ghosts.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Froddo from The Lord of the Rings, which is one of my favorite books. That little guy didn’t stop at anything to protect what he loves. His story is very powerful and resonates deeply in me.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m not writing anything new yet, as I’ve literally just finished working on this new release. But I am already plotting my next novel in my head and hope to start writing soon. It’s a romance set in Greece, probably another romantic comedy as I really enjoyed writing The Amulet which is in that same genre.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I hope to publish two books late next year, both romances, and knowing me, they’ll probably involve a ghost, a Greek god, an angel or something whimsical like that. I think the world is magical, if only we believe it to be so, so can’t help adding to my creative mix a generous sprinkle of fairy dust
Thank you so much for this opportunity to present my new book to your readers, Kayelle! The Raven Witch of Corfu is published in 4 kindle episodes. The paperback will follow soon.
