Attention history buffs:


FORTUNE’S FAVORITE: Sir Charles Douglas and the Breaking of the Line just came out. It was written by a friend of mine, Chris Valin, and represents the expansion of his master’s thesis about his own ancestor, a Royal Naval captain who played a major role in the Relief of Quebec, the Battle of Valcour Island, and the “breaking of the line” at the Battle of the Saints.

It’s being published by a well-regarded small press specializing in nautical history and historical fiction, Fireship Press, who also publishes Alaric Bond. I’m really excited for him.
