On August 1, 2013, I re-released my historical fiction novel, Murder on Second Street: The Jackson Ward Murders, to much hoopla. It was the second edition of the novel having first published it in 2010 after completing it for the National Novel Writing Month contest in November 2009. Readers of the first edition had been waiting nearly 3 years for this moment.
Wonderful post about the beauty of historical fiction. If it weren't for authors like Rebekah L. Pierce, how many people would have known about this part of American history? I certainly never heard of it but am excited to read about it.
