In fact, I like it so much that I'm publishing a novel on it. Well, maybe "publish" is a strong word. The Noble Ladies' Orphanage is still in draft form, but I'm hoping to get it out there and maybe get some feedback on characters, storyline, etc.
This is a fun story for me. It's set in Moravia in the 17th century. When I was 17, I spent some time as an exchange student in Bratislava. It's a beautiful part of the world with interesting history and architecture. I bought some coffee table books of photographs while I was there, and one of the books contains a photo of a building in Brno that was originally used as an orphanage for a select group of young women in the 17th century. I was intrigued, so I learned what I could about it and then filled up the rest with characters and intrigue of my own.
That's the background for Noble Ladies' Orphanage. I'm hoping to create some videos to go along with some of the chapters. When I read historical fiction, I like to learn a little more about "what's true," and I think a multimedia platform like WattPad will lend itself well to that.
At this point, I've published two chapters, and the third is ready to go. Please take a look! Let me know what you like and what you don't. I appreciate feedback and will respond to comments.
