I’m going…are you?

Starting to get really excited about the Historical Novel Society North American conference! It’s a fabulous conference for both readers and writers—a great program and plenty of opportunities to chat with fellow attendees.


It will be held June 21-23 in St. Petersburg, Florida; if you are interested and haven’t registered yet, you can do so at http://hns-conference.org/


I’ll be on a panel with Heather Domin, Audra Friend, and Andrea Connell, looking at Historical Fiction off the beaten path—novels that explore unique settings, overlooked eras, or non-traditional relationships (or all of the above!).

And if you can’t make it, you can follow the shenanigans on Twitter #HNS2013

Today, Melissa at Confessions of an Avid Reader asks me some really interesting interview questions; I hope my answers are interesting too!

She is hosting an international giveaway of Oleanna through March 5, so if you are interested, make sure you stop by her blog and leave a comment to enter to win.

"…a beautifully written story of loneliness, guilt and hope."

Melissa at Confessions of an Avid Reader has just posted her review of Oleanna. Needless to say, I’m pleased!

"One of this novel’s greatest strengths is Rose’s lovely prose, which is particularly striking when describing the setting.  Indeed, it is not difficult to envision the sheer beauty and peacefulness of the fjordland as one reads this novel…Oleanna is recommended to all readers of historical fiction, especially those interested in reading about a time and place not generally featured in the genre”

Melissa has been kind enough to host an international giveaway of Oleanna as well! Simply comment on the review by midnight (EST) on March 5, and you’ll be entered to win a paperback copy of the book.  She’s also been kind enough to let me blather on, so look for the Q&A this Thursday!
