New York (PRWEB) February 26, 2010
ZAPmedia, leading publisher of under reported historical fiction, is pleased to announce that it is celebrating the third anniversary of the publication of 1919 - Misfortune's End.
1919 - Misfortune's End is an unprecedented piece of historical fiction because of the unique method employed by author Paula Phelan to integrate important historical events with under-reported incidents that most Americans would find interesting and inspiring.
The novel is a captivating drama that takes place during a critical year in US history, exploring the lives of two fictional families, one Irish American and the other African American, as they interact with historical figures of the day including J. Edgar Hoover, Woodrow Wilson, W.E.B. Dubois, Emma Goldman, Margaret Sanger and Helen Keller. Dr. Phelan reveals how, in the face of unimaginable challenges, it is human nature to keep hope alive and strive for success.
"Writing this novel and exploring the under-reported history of the twentieth century has been an incredible experience," explained Phelan. "It is exciting to reflect back on the successes of this novel over the past three years, from selling out in bookstores and Amazon.com, to winning awards from organizations both large and small, and most importantly, the amazing feedback that I have received from readers, which has motivated me to contiue writing about under-reported historical events."
1919 - Misfortune's End is currently available at local bookstores, through its publisher, ZAPmedia and on Amazon.com.
