So it is with much purring that I announce my first successful novel entitled, what else
It is being published by the fabulous and, more significantly, very charming Teeny Tiny Publications published by Amanda Laughtland.
And, yes, as the picture shows, it's tiny (intimate) enough to nestle lovingly on your palm! Kudos to Amanda's book design--in Ron Silliman's words, "Seven chapter, 8-page novel with great color graphics ingeniously printed on a single [8 X 11"] piece of 20-lb weight copy paper."
Isn't it ironic that, when it comes to poetry, I blather forth BRICKS and BRICKS. But when it comes to the novel, I can only muster successfully a most tiny text (moithinks the Poetry Muse is very jealous and wishes, really, to retain most if not all of moi attention). NOVEL CHATELAINE contains seven small chapters. In fact, I'm happy to share the first chapter:
It began with the recollection of a blue silk pocket.
From which an iron key fell.
Which made her purr, "Well hello you 17th Century…!"
Doesn't that first chapter make you want to read more? It does?! Well, HERE'S THE KEY, I MEAN, MY GIFT! If you wish a copy of my novel, just email me (GalateaTen@aol.com) your snailmail address and I will send one to you for FREE! While supplies last...
NOVEL CHATELAINE is part of a larger manuscript:
SILK EGG: COLLECTED NOVELS
which I have faith shall be forthcoming....!
