Quick note for Virginia Book Festival attendees!

During yesterday’s appearance at the Virginia Festival of the Book–hey, y’all, thanks for having me!–I mentioned a fabulous Persia Woolley book on writing historical fiction. I also mangled the title If you’re looking for it, the book is called HOW TO WRITE AND SELL HISTORICAL FICTION. I believe it’s out of print, but it is WELL worth chasing down a copy.

I also heartily endorsed the website of the British Newspaper Archive, a splendid place where you can find national and regional British periodicals for a stupendously small amount of money.
