I think @stefgunning has gathered some encouraging quotes to be sure, but I got to thinking about all the great advice I’ve gotten from the blogosphere about writing. Truth is I care more about what my virtual friends say than ‘famous’ people who know nothing about me, my passion or my writing.

So here is some of the best advice that has been given to me on this blog by all of you:

Christine's advice on researching historical fiction (though there are a 10 other examples of her advice on this site!)

Looking for Blogs to Tour!

Be a stop on my blog tour!!

Hullo friends! So my lovely publishers have started the publicity train as we head towards our March 2014 publication date for Jewel of the Thames.

As part of that, they are creating a schedule for a blog tour, and since you are the folks I blog with most, I thought of putting the question to you first.

If you are interested in being part of the Jewel of the Thames blog tour (wherein I pop in and either do a guest post on your blog or we do a Q&A or interview or book giveaway – whatever you like) please comment below ASAP!

Thanks!
