Monday is a happy day at The Pajama Gardener. One of my very best blog friends, Shauna Roberts, publishes her first novel! Like Mayflies in a Stream is part of a series of historical novels about ancient peoples--the book is a highly researched and well-written story about Mesopotamia during the time of Gilgamesh (in a similar time as The Red Tent, and, unlike The Red Tent, this book will appeal to women and men). It begins with quite a bang: boy meets lion. Actually, a hungry lion desperately searching for food during a drought meets a village full of humans!
I was lucky enough to score an advanced copy, but I'm still buying a copy. I hope you will too. Shauna is good people and a great writer. She blogs at her own place and also at the group blog Novel Spaces. Support this brand new novelist and this small press.
Huge congratulations to Shauna!!!
