I wanted to mention several things that I’m excited about. First and foremost, here’s the cover design for my forthcoming nonfiction book about the Woodville family. Love it! The book will be released by the History Press in October of this year and is available for pre-order at Amazon UK.
Second, the Historical Novel Society is having its North American conference in St. Petersburg, Florida from June 21-23. If you haven’t signed up, now’s the time to do so! I’ll be part of a panel called “The Feisty Heroine Sold into Marriage Who Hates Bear-Baiting: Clichés in Historical Fiction and How to Avoid Them.” This is a great conference for authors, readers, and publishing professionals, so hope to see you there!
Third, my friend Sarah over at Sarah’s History Blog is celebrating Women’s History Month with a series of posts, some by Sarah and some by guests. There’s already some great posts up, and more are on the way! I’m doing a guest post at the end of the month–probably on Alice de la Pole, Duchess of Suffolk. Do stop by–it’s a great blog.
