Friends and Watchers!
My dear friend
finally published her book, Behind the Mask
Now, I've actually read Behind the Mask
and I loved it!
It's a novel about Joseph Merrick, the Elephant Man, and his time in London with Dr Treves, the surgeon who made sure the hospital took him in, as well as Dr Treves's daughter, Colette, who quickly befriends Merrick despite his appearance. It's a blend of true events and fiction that respectfully tells the extraordinary story of Merrick's life in a way that's coordinated, accessible and easy to digest, even for younger readers. A lot of research went into Behind the Mask
, and it's a joy to read.
For a limited time only, the digital copy is for sale at a super low price over at Lulu.com. It would be awesome if you guys could check it out, give her some ratings and reviews and such.Here's the link
is a great writer that just gets to the point of the story without any wishy-washy extras. If I had to compare her writing style to something, I'd compare it to a really fresh and crunchy salad sans a salad dressing. It's all the good stuff, crispy clear, just like that.
And man, do I appreciate that!
Don't forget! *ColetteCopeland
is also publishing her latest novel Painter of Light
right here on deviantART!
I really recommend ol' PoL in general, but it's a great starting point if you wanna sample *ColetteCopeland
's writing before looking into Behind the Mask
. I'm really enjoying PoL right now. It's still ongoing and the chapters are fairly short, so it's really something you don't need to sink your teeth into if you don't have the time, but can enjoy in practically an instant.Painter of Light Chapter 1
Well, that's all from my side.
I'm gonna get back to writing my stupid thesis.
Lots of love, guys!!!
