Really Random Tuesday



Really Random Tuesday is a meme created by Suko at Suko's Notebook which is a way to post odds and ends--announcements, musings, quotes, photos--any blogging and book-related things you can think of.

Have you seen the new blog called The History Girls?

The History Girls is a blog that has been set up by a group of highly acclaimed bestselling authors of historical fiction. Between all of them, every era from the past has been covered, from World War I and II,  to Stonehenge. The group includes such fabulous authors as Celia Rees, Mary Hoffman, Katherine Langrish, Caroline Lawrence, Barbara Mitchelhill and many, many more.

Each day a different author will be posting about their thoughts on all aspects of writing. It is definitely a blog worth following.
