The Wayward Moon – Janice Weizman – Galilee, 894 AD
So, have a look and add to your teetering stack of TBR.
It has to be nice for writers wanting to do research to have you doing some of the grunt work for them. This blog could become an essential resource for your genre.
I hope so, Traci. Since the blog is new, I want to create some depth as a reference site. I’m finishing up a few books already underway and then I will start working through this growing list myself. Can’t wait!
