I found this blog today and wanted to share it with my readers.
It's called "Unusual Historicals" and it's written by authors of historical romance. It's really an interesting blog. The authors discuss the actual facts about the people they choose for characters in their books.
Lot of pictures and a few contests sprinkled in here and there make for a great place to visit each day.
I was particularly interested in Lisa Yarde's entry about William the Conqueror as he is a distant ancestor of mine.
