Over the last little while I and Katrin have visited many places, both separately and together, for The Middle Ages Unlocked. I also visited some other places, for my fiction. All in all, it was a lot of fun, though we ended up writing about as many words as the NaNoWriMo folks write, in the interest of getting word out about books.

I don’t much like normal PRishness for books (yes, we know the book is out – we want something interesting to read!), so most of these links are to places that say something interesting. I can’t give you a link for the really nice review that will be shortly released in the BBC’s magazine, but I’m very chuffed about it. I’m also chuffed about this review: http://skiffyandfanty.com/2015/10/29/book-review-the-middle-ages-unlocked-a-guide-to-life-in-medieval-england-1050-1300-by-gillian-polack-and-katrin-kania/

For SFF World I used Ghosts as an excuse to talk about writing. I really don’t need much of an excuse to write about writing technique and theory and narrative and…
This isn’t all the blogposts. It’s all I can remember, however, and will have to do.
