January C S R Feature: The Pledge By Mikiesboy

Posted by , in CSR Book Club January 02, 2017 · 0 views

CSR Book Club Feature The Pledge Mikiesboy

It's 2017... how did that happen?! Ups, downs, good or bad, time marches on. As we look ahead to what may come in 2017, maybe even making a few resolutions, I can't help but enjoy looking back at the past. Given that Mikiesboy recently finished a historical story--with a bit of paranormal thrown in for fun--I wanted to give readers a chance to enjoy this short story hopefully everyone will have the time to finish and be ready for the discussion day on Monday, January 30th.

 

The Pledge

by Mikiesboy

 

Length: ​10,295

 

Description: Young Tristan, sent to work for Lord William discovers much about life and love.

 

A Reader said: Nonetheless, the richness and complexity of this tale was terrific. ~ Reader1810

 

 

Don't forget, this month's Discussion Day will take place on Monday, January 30th.






Congrats on the feature, tim!  This is a perfect reminder that I wanted to read this story.  :)

Yay!! Congratulations tim!! 

 

:D for you! 

Congratulations, tim. A well-deserved honor! I highly recommend this story :)

Ok. I know I've been busy with life and stuff, but I couldn't have been that busy to have missed it. Better change that. Congratulations Tim!!! I'm proud of you. Always have and always will.

This is actually great timing too. I have a few more theories and/or thoughts since I did my review. This will be the perfect place to bring them to light and see how off the wall - or not- my thinking is. :D

Quite unusual story for this genre, but very captivating. The ending was rather unexpected but logical in retrospect.

Thanks Cia for selecting this story. It is an honor and I sincerely appreciate it. 

 

 

The Pledge was something that I'd partially written a number of years ago. I added to it because I always liked Tristan and I wanted people to know more about his background.  

 

Thanks for all the comments so far. I'll note January 30 in my calendar!! Wouldn't want to miss it.

Okay, I don't mind appearing as a total idiot, but what is a CSR Discussion Day and how does it work? I have looked, but didn't find an answer.

CSR stands for "Can't Stop Reading".  The first Monday of every month features the CSR story to give people the month to read it.  The last Monday of the month is the discussion day, which features an interview the author and the opportunity for readers to ask questions, which the author responds to that day.

So we read the story if we haven't already, and then come back here on the date and time and meet with the author Mikiesboy. Then there's a Q&A related to the story.

CSR (Cant Stop Reading) or in my world, Customer Service Rep!  Cia in this case chooses to feature a story, give everyone a few weeks to read it and then we meet back here at on Jan. 30 to talk about. You can tell me what you think, ask questions, whatever. 

 

And you are FAR from being an idiot, William!!!  You're a very good writer and I love your work. 

Proud of you tim.

You have me curious now, Reader!!

 

Quite unusual story for this genre, but very captivating. The ending was rather unexpected but logical in retrospect.

Now I need to add After the Past and The Pledge to my reading list. :read: :)

Congrats tim! 

Yes Drew you should add them to your reading list. Both are worth a read and are an interesting counterbalance to Faris and James.
