A wonderful indie duet – meet Mary Anne and Sayara

Time for yet another post featuring some of the talented authors I’ve met via social media and the like. Today, I am proud to have Sayara StClair and Mary Anne Yarde as my guests.

Welcoming two more wonderful indie writers – meet Jessie and Cryssa

This week, I am happy to have Cryssa Bazos and Jessie Cahalin popping by for a visit. Cryssa and I have met. We share a passion for the 17th century – and numbers, seeing as we both have financial careers. Jessie is one of those people it is difficult NOT to meet if one hangs …

Losing the history and sticking with romance – something of a challenge!

I’m going to come right out and admit it: the reason I write is because it allows me to indulge the huge romantic streak within, the one that has me sighing happily whenever true love overcomes whatever obstacles crosses its path. This doesn’t mean that I necessarily write 100% pure romances – you see, I …

Oh, a writer’s life is a wonderful life – ask Annie and Heather!

It is strange how we meet people these days. Both ladies who are visiting my blog today are social media acquaintances. In the case of Heather King, we have run into each other on FB where she runs a couple of groups aimed at increasing author visibility. Heather writes Regency romance *sighs happily* I LOVE …

More Wonderful authors – Meet Elizabeth St John and Terry Tyler

Time for my next Indie author duo, the third in my series “The Wonderful Life of an Indie Author”. Today, I’ve paired a lady who writes post-apocalyptical series and thrillers with a writer of 17th century historicals – maybe because Terry Tyler has written a number of books set in present time but with the …

The Wonderful life of an indie writer – meet Helen and Lisette!

I have decided to broaden my blog a bit by doing a series of posts about Indie writers. My first thought was to feature five or so in one post, but I must have disconnected my brain when I had that idea seeing as I forgot that authors in general are verbal creatures, i.e. the …

The king’s man – new book about Tudor England

If you enjoy well-researched historicals and haven’t discovered Tony Riches yet, you’re in for a treat. I have read his Tudor trilogy and, as a consequence, ended up reassessing Henry VII whom I had always considered a rascally usurper, no more, no less. Tony paints a far more complex character of the man who grasped …

The Norman Excuse For Conquest… a little matter of an oath.

I am so excited today! As we approach the anniversary of the Battle of Hastings (this weekend. I will toast Harold and cry a bit) Helen Hollick has popped by with a post about Harold Godwinson’s supposed oath of fealty to Duke William of Normandy (Bill, in the below). Personally, I am stuck on the …
