Over the past several months I’ve been joking around about how I’m “Channeling Chuck.” I have been posting all kinds of fun facts on similarities between Charles Dickens and myself on my facebook page. Click here: D.L. Marriott Facebook Page
Okay, so even though I can’t hope to compare, I can share other facets of his life. For one, we are both self-published authors. Yes, although he had a publisher, Mr. Dickens was unhappy with his pitiful share of the money, so he went out and self-published a book. It turned out to be one of his most successful books. I could give you many more interesting facts and parallels, and over time I will, but for now I am concentrating on writing a book in which Mr. Dickens, himself, is a major character.
In preparation for this, I am reading all of Charles Dickens works, in order. Either that makes me extremely intellectual, extremely brave and adventurous, or extremely crazy. Whatever you want to call me, feel free to follow me on my quest to better understand a great classic author. To share what I learn I’ve launched a new facebook page.

It’s a public page so you don’t need to be a facebook-er (is that even a word?) to check it out.
I hope you do. I think it’s going to be fun! Or as Mr. Dickens would say – It will be a jolly undertaking that will, no doubt. bring forth much spirited repartee.
