Author Helen Hollick, who is also the UK indie review editor for the Historical Novels Review, is going to be previewing the HNS London '12 conference on her blog. Throughout September, in the lead-up to the conference, she'll be hosting a special guest each day--a speaker or author who is attending the conference--including Gillian Bagwell, Elizabeth Chadwick, and more.
I was so pleased that Helen invited me to contribute on behalf of all us poor souls who can't make it to London this year. One of the cool things she includes is an invitation to imagine an ideal dinner party, and the nine guests you'd invite (living, dead, fictional, real), and I'm having a blast putting mine together.
Look for these posts starting September 1!
