I'm a freelance fiction writer that not only writes the story, but also formats, prints, designs the cover art, and binds the book myself. This is not a book you will find in Barnes & Noble or Kindle. A short story told in 24 letters. This would make a wonderful novelty gift for those that enjoy all things Victorian. THIS BOOK CONTAINS NO GRAPHIC VIOLENCE, NO EXPLICIT SEX, AND NO FOUL LANGUAGE.

SYNOPSIS: It is 1903, and Phillip Fontaine is desperately--ridiculously--in love with Constance Libertine. He has asked her to marry him, but Constance has left Boston for a holiday in New York with her Aunt Edwina without giving him her answer. While Phillip writes long, adoring, anxious letters, other letters are being written, opinions expressed, and events taking place that may interfere with the young couple. Then, there is the question of Constance herself; will she live up to her first name--or her last?

EXCERPT: "...Mr. Fontaine is a plague worthy of a tragic novel! He hovers and rambles and delineates until we are all pressed to the screaming edge. And in the most ridiculously florid language! I can only imagine what his letters to you must be like...For the life of me, I cannot recall how we became entrapped by this nitwit's presence. But then, it is all your doing, is it not? Indeed it is, for I know your propensity to flitter about, smiling and teasing, like the social butterfly you think you are. You must reform your bad habits, daughter. You are subjecting us to a steady parade of useless nincompoops, and we simply haven't the energy for it. Once again, you must tear yourself away from frivolities--sit down at once, and write this young man, refusing his proposal. If you do not, we shall never be rid of him, and the desolation that comes with knowing the two of you shall propagate an assembly-line procession of equally annoying, diaper-clad reproductions. Never may this be! I would hang myself in despair..." END OF EXCERPT.
