Mercy Street (aka A Moment of Blatant Self-Promotion)
Just so you know, this is what I spent the last ten weeks doing:
It’s the companion volume to a new PBS historical drama about nurses in the Civil War. The PBS series uses a real Civil War hospital as the setting for a fictionalized (and quite gorgeous) drama. (Check out some of promotional pieces on YouTube here.) My book uses the same Civil War hospital to look at the stories of historical nurses.
Between now and February, when the book comes out, you can expect some Civil War posts (because I have great stuff I couldn’t use), some nursing posts (ditto), and a certain amount of “my book! my book!” (because, “my book! my book!).
Now if you’ll excuse, I have a date with fifteenth century Portugal.
Don’t touch that dial.
Wow! It comes to life (for me)! Congratulations!!
Wonderful, congratulations! I can’t wait for the book.
This looks fascinating and right up my alley. (I wrote a novel about nurses in the Vietnam war.) Can’t wait for the series and your book.
Heading off to look for your novel….
A big congratulations to you!!!!!! 🙂
We look forward to buying it.
Yay, Pam! Well done!
Congratulations! We look forward to the book this winter!
I will tell my daughter, an RN.
I hope she enjoys it.
This is so exciting! I’m really looking forward to watching the series and I can’t wait to pick up your book!
It’s the period you write in, correct?
This is way cool. Congratulations — Jack W.
Thanks for the warning, so I plan my January to assure public TV access. Looks wonderful and, with you as author, no doubt a great read.
Sounds like the old days when my friends and I planned our lives around watching the episodes of The Jewel in the Crown as they aired. Usually with a home made Indian meal!
Congratulations! I’m thinking of this for my favorite nurse/sister-in-law as a present. Continued success.
I hope she enjoys it!
I just preordered it. Looks great.
I hope you enjoy it!
You wrote a whole book in only ten weeks?! I am in awe and bow before you! Many congratulations to you, and I can’t wait for both the book and the television program.
Ashley: Ten weeks, not enough sleep, lots of carry-out pizza and a very supportive husband! Thanks for the good words, and I hope you enjoy book and program alike.
