I’d Like Some (More) Reviews

Have you read The Christmas Mutiny? If you have, could I persuade you to review it?

I’d like to place reviews at various venues, including the alternate-history magazine AltHist and the Quaker publication Western Friend. I am hoping that this centennial year of the beginning of the First World War (and of the Christmas Truce) will be a time of greater interest in my story.

I’d also like to get a review at Goodreads.com, on Smashwords.com, and more reviews at Amazon.

If you haven’t read The Christmas Mutiny, I’d be happy to send you a copy. Just let me know.

A commenter here: http://www.balloon-juice.com/2014/04/19/whats-the-matter-with-kansas/ 

asked for a ‘shop of this: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_97xiVJFB8jo/SlvNeBwuJmI/AAAAAAABwes/WiJpXJJ1osg/s1600-h/integrationmob.jpg

combined with this:http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-RnSRUhXt4Rc/URkLB0kNrFI/AAAAAAAAASA/fJHtMbjldyY/s1600/iconic-freddie-mercury.jpg 

I thought this image: http://skyethelimit.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/freddiemercuryimg461.jpg though less iconic, would better serve the purpose.

What do you think?

True.  like Detroit, Greece is being abused and defiled by greedy corporatists who are trying (with shrinking success) to blame everything on working-class people.

bigeisamazing:

Crows are one of the smartest animals out here.


Conclusion: “The Fox and the Grapes” was not zoologically correct (foxes don’t eat veggies), but “The Crow and the Jar” may well have been taken directly from a real-life observation.
