Tales of Byzantium Earns a B.R.A.G. Medallion!

Please join me in congratulating Eileen Stephenson! Her debut collection of short stories, Tales of Byzantium, has been awarded a B.R.A.G. Medallion!

The B.R.A.G. Medallion is awarded by indieBRAG, an organization that supports and promotes independently published books. After a rigorous selection and screening process, only ten percent of the books they consider are awarded the B.R.A.G. Medallion (Book Readers Appreciation Group).

I had the pleasure of providing editorial assistance  as Eileen worked on these stories, and I designed the cover!

Tales of Byzantium also received a wonderful review from the Historical Novel Society:

“Through elegantly described details, sharply observed characters, and especially crisp, modern-sounding dialogue, Stephenson takes these vignettes from the thousand years of Byzantine history, mixes them liberally with such excellent modern narrative histories as John Julius Norwich’s A Short History of Byzantium, and manages to create three very intriguing windows into a part of history largely unknown to many readers.” -Anne McNulty, Historical Novel Society Indie Reviews

Three stories of love, war, and destiny in medieval Byzantium

A young empress defies her powerful father for love and her rightful place on the throne

A charismatic commander takes the gamble of a lifetime to save the lives of  thousands of innocents

An exiled princess finds a new sense of purpose and creates a legacy that will stand through the ages

These stories provide a glimpse of the dynamic and proud Byzantines who lived during the height of the empire's splendor.
