Peni Renner (penijo_renner) | 1 comments Hello! I just joined and would very much like to enter my historical novel, Puritan Witch: The Redemption of Rebecca Eames in more contests. It's about Rebecca Eames, my 9th great grandmother who was accused of witchcraft during the 1692 Salem Witchcraft Hysteria. No explicit sex, a little violence. I do think it would be suitable for YA.

Hey! It's been a while since I posted this and I unfortunately don't remember what type of challenge I was thinking of doing. As of right now I'm not planning any historical writing challenges, but if I have any ideas then I'll certainly try and create a challenge. I think a historical writing challenge would be really great idea for this group, so I'll talk to Tara about it and see if she has any ideas.
