A nice review for A Fine Likeness

My Civil War novel A Fine Likeness just got a nice review over at Boom Baby Reviews. The reviewer gave it 4.5 stars (presumably out of five, lol) and said some nice things. One nice observation:

"One thing that I really liked about this story was the “grey” characters.

"All the main characters weren’t black and white, from the union captain Addison and his attitude towards Negroes, and the Southern bushwhacker Jimmy who didn’t really seem to care one way or the other. It had a very realistic feel to it, when many Civil War stories try to make the divide more pronounced. (Bad Southern Slave Owners, Righteous Yanks.)"

That's one of the things I was aiming for in this novel, that regular, flawed people get swept up by greater forces and that was is rarely black and white.

You can buy A Fine Likeness in ebook and print form at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online outlets.
