According to the Amazon title page of my new novella about Nelson, published today, “Jan Needle has asserted her rights under the Copyright, Design and Patents Act, 1988, etc.”
That’s right people – I’m officially a HER http://amzn.to/1rdg3ed
This is the second in a series of short books about Nelson, and covers the time of his return from the campaign in Nicaragua. He returns to Jamaica extremely sick, extremely weak, and possibly dying. He is nursed back to strength by a woman called Cuba Cornwallis (Surname taken from the Navy man who released her from slavery), probably with the use of non-western remedies including voodoo.
Nelson is now twenty two, coming to terms with tragedy (including in his family) and still blazing with ambition for wealth and glory.
Amazon promised to restore me to full maleness ASAP, but anyone who buys a copy with the unemended title page could virtually sell it in the virtual future for virtually any sum of money they desired.
Me, I don’t care. Call me a lady if you like, but I do have a beard…
