This is a site that promotes new work by historical novelists. It is run by four ladies: Allie who loves reading about controversial women from history, Arleigh, a former book store owner, avid reader, and owner of 500+ historical novels, Heather, a recent college grad who works in the criminal justice system and loves the novels of Phillippa Gregory, Robin Maxwell, Michelle Moran and Jean Plaidy, and lastly, Lizzy, an at-home mom who enjoys escaping into the pages of historical fiction.
At the beginning of April, the blog featured Christy English, who has must written a novel about Eleanor of Aquitaine titled TO BE QUEEN. This is a must-have link for those of us who want to know about new historical fiction coming off the presses (virtual and otherwise). You can find it by clicking here.
