Hello Readers, Friends, And New Visitors,
We are in for a wonderful treat today with a new book release for, Author, Carl Baker.
Carl’s Novel, “14 Days In July” has not only satisfied his readers, but they want this novel as series, or trilogy. Carl is a prolific historical writer/novelist, and this new novel has proven it. It’s an action-packed historical novel weaving together the French Revolution, the Fall of the Bastille, the Man in the Iron Mask, and the Three Musketeers.

The man in the iron mask was not a pure invention of Alexandre Dumas. The rumor of the existence of twin boys being switched, one of whom was to become Louis XIV, had been speculated on for well over a hundred years by many high sources including Voltaire, who secretly told friends he had seen the man unmasked, and saw he was the king’s twin. But what Dumas, and no one else, wrote about, was the even more dangerous rumor that there was not only a switch, but as well … another lineage ….
