It’s always a delight to get contributor copies in the mail, and this morning’s mail brought my copy of Made By History: An Anthology of Historical Fiction, just out from The Copperfield Review, and available in both print and e-book formats through Amazon. My contribution is an excerpt from my novel-in-progress Dearest Clara, which is based on the life of 19th-century German pianist and composer Clara Schumann. The excerpt takes place during the Dresden Uprising of 1847, and feels oddly timely.
Thanks to Meredith Allard, Susan Arenstein and Paula Day for putting this beautiful anthology together. I’m honoured to be included in it, and grateful that The Copperfield Review has been publishing historical fiction for the last twenty-two years.
