When we were piecing together ideas about how we wanted the blog to look and what we wanted to feature in it, we realised that we didn't want just reviews or author interviews, we wanted to make this a unique magazine style blog, covering a range of genres, although currently, we seem to be getting more requests for historical fiction than anything else! But we as a group are doing our best to change that. We have been featuring both Indie and mainstream authors and some of our more well known authors have been Patricia Bracewell and Bernard Cornwell. One of our more popular features are reviews with giveaways. We almost always giveaway a book with a book reviewed.
This coming year on The Review, I am hoping to develop the project further. We have joined partnership with Independent Book Reviews and Gingernut Books and hope to be expanding what our site can offer readers, reviewers and authors in the coming year. We have some excellent ideas tossing around between us, so look out for The Review this year, it's going to be spectacular!
So that's one pie I have my finger in, the next project I want to talk about is my current WIP The Wolf Banner which is the follow up to Sons of the Wolf. The Wolf Banner is the sequel to Sons and it is 18 months in the waiting. Basically, I wanted a new editor for The Wolf Banner and so I was recommended D Michelle Gent Services by a friend and after chatting to Michelle and sampling her work, I knew my sequel was going to be in safe hands. you can find Michelle's Editing Services here. I am hoping that The Wolf Banner will be ready for publication in April this year.
And finally, I want to remind people about my Threads to the Past blog which I shall be revamping in the near future. I have spent a lot of time working on The Review that this and my Sons of the Wolf blog have been very neglected. I hope now to amalgamate the Sons of the Wolf blog
with Threads to the Past in one new look blog which will not only talk about the Tapestry itself but also other aspects of 11thc life. This will also link in with my research for the period in which the Sons of the Wolf series is set. So I am hoping that you will join me, coming down the passages of time as we untangle all the threads that keep the past alive.
