Two things have stolen my mind away from Edwardian Promenade and you amazing people: school and writing.
Last year, I returned to college for a new degree, which has me diving into archiving, public history, oral history, museum studies, and a host of other cool things to do with functional history.
This year, I sold a story to William Morrow/HarperCollins–A Fall of Poppies, an anthology featuring novellas by nine authors and centers on WWI’s Armistice Day as soldiers come home at last, and survivors pick up the pieces in search of hope, remembrance, and love. Those other eight authors are Heather Webb, Beatriz Williams, Jennifer Robson, Lauren Willig, Kate Kerrigan, Marci Jefferson, Hazel Gaynor, and Jessica Brockmole! Look for this book in 2016.
But to reassure you that I have not forgotten about this blog, here’s a tentative list of upcoming posts:
Review of Erik Larson’s Dead Wake
Review of the latest spate of Downton Abbey books
Recap and review of Mr. Selfridge, in anticipation for its season three premiere on PBS
Revival of the Fascinating Women series and the WWI Wednesday series
