No “Three Poems for Thursday,” So How About “Fiction Friday?”

Is it weird that I can figure out how to post video and use a webcam, but I can’t figure out how to turn off the ringer on my phone? Anyway, this is me reading the prologue of the historical novel on which I am currently working.

I first started doing the research for this novel about ten years ago.  I know that sounds like a long time, but I let my curiosity take me wherever it would.  In the meantime, I got busy actually writing other things.  After a few false starts a couple of years apart, finally within the last year I streamlined my research and began the writing of the novel in earnest.

Feedback is very welcome and appreciated.  Sharing my draft fiction is a bit scarier for me than sharing my draft poetry, but here goes.
