Which Midnight Rider Outrode Paul Revere by 26 Miles?

Image
New Short Story Coming Soon

Most American history buffs are well-versed in the tales told of Paul Revere and his midnight ride. A lesser known, but equally important midnight ride took place two years after Revere's.
The sixteen year old who outrode Paul Revere by 26 miles in a thunderstorm was a young woman named Sybil Ludington.
Her Midnight Ride Featured in The Prometheus Saga 2 A companion piece to On Both Sides
Never heard of American Revolutionary War heroine Sybil Ludington? I hope to change that with "Her Midnight Ride," a short story based on true events.

Speculative Twists on the Classics
In The Masters Reimagined, ten authors unite to bring something new to the classic stories of literature we all know so well. Masters like James Joyce, Rudyard Kipling, Lewis Carroll, Herman Melville, Leo Tolstoy, and Shakespeare inspired the authors of the Alvarium Experiment in their quest to reinterpret, reinvent, and reshape the stories and characters through speculative twists and turns. This is the third project by the Alvarium Experiment, a consortium of accomplished and award-winning authors.
The stories and authors are:

The Count of the Alician Apocalypse” by Bria Burton. On a visit to Stonehenge, a handsome stranger offers Alice an escape from the man who has been following her by way of a magical portal in one of the monoliths. Visit Bria at www.briaburton.com. “The Lottery” by Kristin Durfee. As Earth is dying, Eve Line may have found a way to leave the doomed planet. The world’s best and brightest ha…

The Running Girls is currently a Finalist in the 2017 Royal Palm Literary Awards. At the FWA Conference in October, I'll find out if the book wins a top prize (1st, 2nd, or 3rd) in the Published Novella category. It's a tough category with lots of entrants, but even being a Finalist is an honor.

Coming Soon: Print Edition
I'm currently creating the print edition of The Running Girls, which will likely be released in September.
Stay tuned for more details!



Introducing Livinity Fantasy Author Shayla Cole

Fantasy Author Shayla Cole
I'm pleased to introduce Shayla Cole, fantasy author of the Livinity trilogy. Visit her all-new website: www.shaylacole.com
And I know what you're thinking...Shayla Cole looks a lot like Bria Burton.

That's because Shayla Cole is me! I now have a nom de plume for Livinity.

What's a Nom de Plume?
It's a fancy way of saying "pen name." A pen name is a name an author uses in place of their real name.


Why a Pen Name?

I'm not using the name Shayla Cole for privacy reasons. I don't mind that people will know that Shayla Cole and Bria Burton are the same person. The main reason I'm using a pen name is to separate my epic fantasy novels (Livinity trilogy and anything related to Livinity) from my other writing projects.

Explain this one more time...

Shayla Cole is my new nom de plume for all things related to my epic fantasy trilogy, Livinity. All other writing remains under my real name, Bria Burton. Women's fiction, inspirational …
