I’ve been busy preparing for the Blog Tour. (You can see the details on my events page: here.) The response has been far more enthusiastic than Diane (VA) or I expected, and so it has grown. All of the blogs will be reviewing Mistress of the Sun and some will be holding a raffle give-away.
For about half of them, I’m contributing an essay or being interviewed: this entails a lot of writing! This week I’ve written the first three, titled:
“Why I love unhappy endings.”
“How a bookclub changed me as a writer.”
“What to leave in . . . and what to leave out: crafting a story from history.”
I’m enjoying writing these … and I hope readers will enjoy reading them.
I’ve also written a post to my research blog (on—shhh—enemas) and one on bells for Hoydens and Firebrands as well.
I berate myself for “not writing” ? but the fact is, I am.

Thank you, Lilian. BTW, I just posted a link (in the sidebar, under Author interviews — I know, there’s only one so far) to a wonderful old taped interview of Mordecai Richler.
I’m so glad for you!
