This summer, one of my primary writing projects has been composing new short stories related to my Civil War novel, Hagridden. Each story involves a minor character or two from the novel, people who have some important moments in the book but are definitely supporting characters to the main narrative; in these stories, those folks get their own narrative.
Today, Bartleby Snopes published the first of those stories, “What Have You Done to Deserve Such a Halo.” It concerns a relatively well-off farm wife, Catherine Stone, whose husband has gone to war and might never return to her.
In the novel, she appears relatively late, surrounded by other war wives. Here, she has the story almost all to herself . . . until a mysterious figure invades her home in the nighttime.
More Hagridden-related fiction is coming soon, gang! And the novel itself will be available August 19! Or, if you’re impatient, you can sign up for a chance to win a free copy in our Goodreads giveaway!
