I’m blogging at History Hoydens today in honor of President’s Birthday. Actually, I’m talking about historical authors figuring when things actually happened, which is A Lot Harder then you might think. I’ve got some examples from George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
Please drop in and chat, if you’ve got time!

The 2011 February episode of the Broad Pod is now available. Hosted by Trisha Wooldridge from A Novel Friend Writing and Editing, this month’s romantic collection of short readings from women writing across the realm of speculative fiction is available for download just in time for Valentine’s Day.
The Broad Pod is sponsored by Broad Universe, an international, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, honoring, and celebrating women writers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Find out more about our organization, including new fiction released by women, more podcasts, and information about writing and publishing for women, from our website.
As February is the month of love, this collection of snippets are all touched by romance. Pauline Baird Jones gives us steampunk attraction across time; Rae Lori shares love, lasers, and escaped convicts; Jessica Freely introduces us to a budding relationship amid transgendered class warfare; and Diane Whiteside delivers us a first date between a homicide cop and a sorceress.
For more information about the Broad Pod, the readers, and how you can become involved, please contact the readings and events “chick” coordinator, Trisha J. Wooldridge at firstname.lastname@example.org

I’m blogging today over at Cynthia Eden‘s place. She gave me a heck of an interview for My Deadly Valentine, to celebrate THE SHADOW GUARD‘s release in April and her DEADLY LIES in March.
Please stop by and check it out!

I’m partying – uh, blogging – at Monica Burns’ big blog party today. I’ll be chatting about where past meets present. Otherwise known as how I managed to introduce my heroine (born in 1880′s Nebraska Territory) to a very modern-day homicide cop.
Please stop by and chat about books set in real places, where history walks.

Hello again! I’m blogging today at History Hoydens about how to sneak the historical background into a book’s beginning. (Hey, it’s backstory, isn’t it? Yet who wants to read a boring info dump? But it’s vital if it’s set in a different time and place from today’s world. Oh gosh, this is starting to feel more complicated than writing a contemporary novel…)
Please stop by and chat! I’d love to compare notes about books who flaunted the history from the beginning or surprised you with its importance. I’ve got examples ranging from SENSE AND SENSIBILITY to THE IRISH DEVIL to THE DEVIL SHE KNOWS to…
