On this blog, I try to write and report about literature, books and biographies about famous classic authors. Having said that, this post is classified as shameless self promotion because I am linking to a story I wrote. It is entitled “Betrothed” and I just won a contest!

“Judge Patti Callahan Henry said of Betrothed, “This story has what all great stories should have: an intriguing opening that makes the reader want to know more. The story takes us back and forth in time, building tension with each forward movement, and then taking us backward toward the meaning of his regret. The author builds a world around his themes and then allows the reader to go with him to the very end.”

I am very appreciative and thrilled, needless to say.

    Very exciting news.
    And not near enough shameless self promotion if you ask me:)

    I really enjoy your posts. Cheers and congrats!

  2. Congrats to you!! (This is Corra/Jillian from TNBW/Facebook.)

    I just wanted to pop in and have a look around. A lovely blog you’ve got here. I’m a lit/history fan as well, though at this point I know very little about either.

    I’ve added your site to my blog roll. 🙂

    All the best, corra
