#IndieFeature: A Day’s Dreams by Emi Higashiyama

A Day’s Dreams, originally published at Medium.

Today I’m sharing with you A Day’s Dreams, a short fiction piece by Emi Higashiyama. ๐Ÿ’– It’s a fascinating read, so much that it’s now on my to do list to read more about Ottoman history and culture sometime soon. The story tells us about harems, women’s role in Ottoman society, palace intrigue, and succession practices. Yeah, there’s some Game of Thrones vibes here, but there are even more surprises.

One of the parts I liked, early on the piece:

Navigating life in the harem and general palace was complicated business โ€” best left to the women to sort it out.

Ha! ๐Ÿคช Anyway, head on to Medium to read the full story!

Emi, a self-professed ‘history wonk who sneaks in trivia most people didnโ€™t know they didnโ€™t need to know,’ can be found over atย Twitter.

Got an indie read to recommend? Let me know and if I pick it up, Iโ€™ll be sure to feature it here! I like fantasy, mythology, folklore, time travel, historical fiction, as well as Young Adult and Middle Grade. Anthologies and shorts will be read first due to time and life constraints, but feel free to recommend as many as you like. Also, self-promotion is 100% okay!
