A Two For One Special

A two-for-one special today as I pop up on two different blogs: Daphne's "Tanzanite's Castle Full of Books" and Lizzy's "Historically Obsessed." For Daphne I've got a post on the four men who starred in the Year of Four Emperors - a cranky old man, a metrosexual party boy, a rabid sports fan, and an EveryDad; read here for more details. And for Lizzy I've got a post - ok, maybe a rant - on the perils of writing historical fiction while on a diet: "Obsessed with Roman food? Scratch that. While writing my historical fiction novel Daughters of Rome, I was obsessed with any food, because I wasn't getting any. I was on a diet while writing the second half of the book, and it was a form of torture I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy." Read here to continue!
