I have finally published the first edition of my Russian historical novel For He Was A Cossack! It has been a long road, consisting of day after day of careful line-pouring and lightning edits and proofreads.
But it is done, at least enough to finally let others read!
Seize the opportunity, comrade, for my book is on sale!
"Amidst personal and economic tragedies, horseman Ivan Shostakov tries to keep his life and house intact while also fighting for his country.
To expound the situation, family relationships are being pushed to the breaking point and Tsar Peter I is keen on Europeanizing Russia, torturing everyone, and squelching the Cossack culture of Southern Russia. A large-scale novel of action and solitude, romance and conflict, spanning the vast territories from golden steppe to cold northern forest in Finland and Siberia, For He was a Cossack is an enthralling read." http://www.lulu.com/shop/azure-james/for-he-was-a-cossack/paperback/product-22770047.html
