Blague

Blague-ing

I never, ever claim to have a good command of spoken French, but I couldn't resist this multilingual pun. "Blague" means "joke" in French, and the thought of myself (formerly the teenager who could never abide the thought of writing endless self-involved musings in a diary) trying to write the high-tech equivalent of a journal is something of a jest. However...

Bienvenue/welcome! Here I'll be nattering on about historical fiction, the French Revolution in particular, writing historical mysteries, publishing, and any related matters that come to mind. I'll try to post at least once every other week, and also will host some guests from time to time. Please visit frequently, leave a comment if you wish, and stay tuned...
