This is exciting! Alexandra MacDonald, Editor at Inkitt.com has selected "Black Dog" as an Inkitt Editor's Pick!
Here's her feedback (via email, and I hope she doesn't mind me publicly quoting her):
"Black Dog is a gripping, gritty period piece. Historical literature often falls flat but you have managed to write an engaging story with a wonderfully executed plot. The world your narrative creates feels natural, the character interactions feel genuine, and your approach toward drama within that period translates very well to modern readers."
Great news, great feedback and great way to start my day!

Tyburn was an infamous execution spot west of London, used since medieval times. The Tyburn "tree" - a unique, multi-person gallows - erected in 1571 became a popular public spectacle, drawing crowds of thousands.Tyburn Tree blog is less blood-thirsty but hopefully topical, interesting and informative, if slightly bent to my personal topics of interest - books, writing, history, technology, with a smattering of politics and dash of pop culture, science and the downright strange. So "take a ride to Tyburn" and see what happens...
