Lori Baker's novel, The Glass Ocean, set in Victorian England, will be the subject of a LitChat at 4 pm EST on Wednesday, 3 September. The conversation can be followed via: www.nurph.com/litchat or by becoming a follower of Lori Baker through Twitter: lori1baker1 -- for moe details, see http://litchat.com/coming-up-in-litchat/ John Banville wrote: "The Glass Ocean is that rarest of things, a historical novel, or at least a novel set in history, that is also a work of art. Lori Baker is a captivating story-teller, and her prose has the flash and fire of molten glass." For a review of Lori's book, see: http://litchat.com/coming-up-in-litchat/

Hi Amy, I wanted to let you know about our Virtual Historical Festival which is kicking off on Monday, it is going to feature loads of competitions, author interviews and social media interaction.

Dear Amy, I hope you are having a good start to the week? As you may already be aware, next February sees Simon Parke launch his fantastic new historical fiction title, The Soldier, the Gaoler, the Spy and Her Lover (16 February, 2017). Simon would love the opportunity to speak to your readers about his experience in bringing this true historical account to life, in particular the life of Charles I’s spy and mistress Jane Whorwood, who has been all but written out of history until now. Why have the women who shaped our past been written out of history? And, entering a year in which the majority of America trusts Trump over Clinton, has our political patriarchy really changed that much? As Monday 30 January marks the anniversary of the King’s death, can looking back provide us with a better perspective on the political landscape moving forward?I would be delighted to send you advance proofs your way if you think this is something you would be interested in?
