My favorite historical resources

I recently gave a couple of classes on researching historical fiction, and even though I’ve posted about (read: “totally geeked out about”) some of these resources before, I wanted to put them all in one place (especially if I missed emailing them to anyone who wanted them!). So, here are some of the sources I…

The submissions window is closed, and the mentors are now frantically reading through the subs, looking for “the one.” When I was a hopeful, this was the stage where I was biting my nails and checking my email every 10 (5? 3?) minutes, so I want to let y’all know what things look like on…

World War I is getting closer…

Okay, I actually mean the centennial of the U.S. entering World War I. The “Great War” started in August of 1914, but the U.S. entered the war April 6, 1917–99 years ago today. Like a lot of people, I didn’t know much about World War I except trenches, the Spanish Flu, and Snoopy’s dogfights with…

So, I’ve been quiet this month because I’ve been busy editing and marketing, but I have a couple of exciting pieces of news to wrap up the summer.
