This is a ‘must post’, I think.
My sister, Cynthia Jefferies, has been a successful children’s author for some time; now, heading in a slightly different direction, she is about to publish her first book for adults. It’s an historical novel, The Outrageous Fortune of Abel Morgan, set in the period after the Civil War. Cindy provides some background in a post on The History Girls blog – you might like to swing by and read what she has to say.
I’m looking forward to seeing the book in due course, meanwhile I wish her every success with the launch.
And ‘going out on a limb’? You’ll need to check out those History Girls to find out what that refers to.
