Temple of Love is READY

My novel is finally ready! It's been six years in the making, but it is now available for purchase through this e-store (and soon through Amazon).

From the back cover:

Laura Britton is a teacher of literature and creative writing in the Midwest, where she lives with her family. This offering in historical fiction is her first novel.

Sappho of Mytiline is the earliest female poet from the Classical world whose writings, fragmentary as they are in their current condition, have come down to us. Precious little is known about the true historical life of Sappho, except what we can glean from poetry written by and about her.

Sappho was hailed as the Tenth Muse, and her poems of love and longing were directed at the men … and women … whom she loved on her island home of Lesvos.

Britton, in this debut title, offers readers a peek at the life and loves of a priestess of Aphrodite – a priestess so notable that she is responsible for our modern understanding of the word “Lesbian.”
