Ave Historia: An irreverent look at historical fiction today: books trends, historical tidbits, and random tangents
April 4, 2011
Publication day for my new book "Daughters of Rome" isn't until tomorrow, but my blog tour has already begun! I'm very excited to be visiting some new blogs as well as returning to some favorites, either as a guest blogger or for an author interview. I'll be updating daily here, so check in if you want to follow me around the blogosphere.
I'm starting off my blog tour with the lovely Marjolein Book Blog. Marjolein has a great review of "Daughters of Rome," and invited me to be a guest blogger as well. My topic: Young Adult Historical Fiction. A teaser . . .
"One of the first things that drew me to historical fiction was my envious realization that kids and teenagers in other eras actually got to do stuff. I might be stuck in middle school, bored senseless by my algebra homework, the biggest crisis of my day being how to cover up a zit. But in a historical fiction novel, I was old enough for anything!"
