In addition, Rhonda Shore completed the editing of my manuscript for A Song for Sparta, which was then forwarded to Wheatmark for publication.
Based on an incident recorded in Herodotus, A Song for Sparta tells the remarkable story of Sparta’s struggle with Messenia in the 7th century BC through the eyes of three different narrators. The Messenian Wars were the transformative event that shaped Spartan society for the next four hundred years.
The cover is by Hazel Horne. It was a delight working with Hazel and I hope to work with her again in the future.
