I’m blogging today at History Hoydens about maps, glorious maps. Yes, they can help authors in more ways than driving down the road or finding a new place to eat dinner. For historical authors, the right map can be a godsend and new maps are becoming available all the time.
They can help find a hometown for a hero, a bolthole for a villain, or a dangerous setting for a book’s climax.
Please stop by if you’d like to chat about any maps or settings that have helped you enjoy – or write! – a book.

I’m blogging today at History Hoydens
about all the fabulous blogs and websites popping up for the American Civil War’s sesquicentennial.
Would you believe you can find “What happened today” for stuff that happened 150 years ago? Amazing – and frequently far more fun than today’s news.
Please stop by and chat about historical books and sites that draw you into an enchanted world.

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 email@example.com
