A lady with a bite – meet fab writer Sayara StClair

I first came across Sayara’s books via twitter. (Yes, I am one of those who actually BUY books based on tweets) At the time, Sayara had published the second in her Dante’s Purgatory series, an erotic BDSM novel that was far more complex than your standard erotic romance. When she published Master Me, the third …

Spelling it out in Viking times – a post about runes

Today, I’ve invited Christina Courtenay over to share some information on runes, the Viking way of writing. Up here in Sweden, we have a number of runestones standing like silent sentinels over those that came long before us. These days, we consider them precious remnants of our past, some generations ago, they were viewed with …

Dressing a Naked Gorgeous Georgian Nobleman

Today, I have a real treat for you. And yes, I realise the title is a giveaway – naked and gorgeous, hey? Now, those who know me – or follow my blog – will know I don’t write much about the Georgian period. I have little liking for the Hanoverian kings and while I can …

Not a sinner, not a saint – meet a lady with a helping hand!

Some weeks before Christmas, I had the pleasure of reading Tinney Heath’s latest book, Lady of the Seven Suns. If you enjoy well-written historical fiction in a somewhat unusual setting (no knights, no damsels in distress, nowhere close to the royal courts of France or England) this book is a must-read. Come to think of …

Every time we say goodbye I cry a little…

…or the downside of bonding too much with your characters… Today is the release date for the third book in my series The Wanderer. It is also the last book in the series, and as always, I am torn in two between pride at having completed yet another series and a desire to weep as …

Like a glowing star – meet Ms St.John and her new release!

I must admit to the sin of jealousy. Yup: lots and lots of jealousy, because today’s guest has such a wealth of recorded family history from which to be inspired when she sets out to write her historical novels. Having said that, what Elizabeth St. John does with all that family history is something akin …

The cause, the rose, the bonnie prince – debunking the -45

Today, I am happy to introduce you to Kimberley Jordan Reeman, author of Coronach, a book set in the late 18th century and dealing with the fallout from that clash of clashes, the Battle of Culloden.  In today’s post, Kimberley digs into the myths and legends surrounding the last Jacobite Rebellion, and so, with no …

For fans of all things Tudor

Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure to read quite a few of Tony Riches’ books, knowing that I am guaranteed a well-researched and enthralling ride through the past. Of late, his focus has been on the rise of the Tudors, starting with a book about Owen, the obscure Welshman who married Henry V’s widow …

Do No Harm – a spotlight

Some peeps always go out of their way to support and promote other writers. One such is Christoph Fischer, so when he wondered if I’d be interested in doing a shout-out for a boxed set of medical thrillers to which he has contributed, the answer was a resounding YES. Do no harm hit the nr …

A distracted lady

Some of you may have wondered why the number of posts on my blog have dwindled markedly since February. To be honest, I wasn’t planning on allowing them to dwindle, but sometimes life gets in the way, doesn’t it? In February, I underwent surgery. For a couple of weeks afterwards, I couldn’t type. Drove me …
