I'm pleased to host Carolyn P. Schriber, author of historical novels, as my guest blogger tomorrow. Carolyn will be talking about the importance of research, and the difference between what a historical figure says in speeches and letters and what he actually does. It's an eye-opening piece contrasting research for academic writing and research for compelling fiction.
What I'm Reading
I don't know. I'm having trouble getting into the fantasy and science fiction books I'd put at the top of my reading list. Maybe I'll try Elizabeth George. I have A Suitable Vengeance handy. Elizabeth never disappoints.
The First December Movie
I picked Morning Glory, a fun and sweet and charming movie that left me feeling good. It even had a few laugh-out-loud moments. Harrison Ford makes a great curmudgeon.
The Big Announcement...at Least Part of It
The Prairie Grass Murders is now available from the Kindle Store at amazon.com. As soon as I get the book uploaded for Nook, I'll celebrate a little louder. For now, if you want another peek at the new cover art, click on the book's title and off you go.
This book was published in 2007 in hardcover by Five Star/Gage, then as an audiobook by Books in Motion in 2008, then in mass market paperback by Harlequin Worldwide in 2010. Now I'm moving into e-books, which were not even considered in our 2007 book contracts. Things sure can change in a hurry.
