I’ve known for months that when Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie came out (as it does tomorrow in the US) I wanted to share some of the many books that have been written about Arthurian women. What I didn’t expect is to go on about the lack of movies about female Arthurian characters. Well, I’ve done both in this article in the Huffington Post! Happy reading! (And I hope you find another book you’d like to add to your list!)
I have another article in The Huffington Post today. This one is called “Writing a Tame Romance in The Age of 50 Shades” and it’s about why I decided to make Been Searching for You a sweet romance vs. the traditional steamy. (The formatting is crazy; totally not what the preview looked like when I submitted it. I have no idea what they did to it!)
In Been Searching for You, my main character, Annabeth, writes a column for the Huffington Post about what it’s like to be over 30 and single. Today, I’m celebrating the publication of this book by making her fictional column a reality. Click on the picture below (or here) to read it.
Wow, this is an amazing day. On top of my previous news, The Huffington Post released my article, “Traveling in the Footsteps of King Arthur and Guinevere,” a day early (it was supposed to coincide with my book release tomorrow). It made the front page of the travel section, as well!
There’s a whole series of posts on this blog about that trip I took if you want to know more:
I am so proud to be able to say my article Why Guinevere Matters Now, is on the homepage of Huffington Post Books today! It’s the top story on the upper left.
As you can probably tell from the title of the article, my aim is to show why the character of Guinevere is relevant to a modern audience, especially women, and how looking at her story from a new perspective (as I do in my book) provides context to enable her to stand side by side with her famous husband, rather than in the shadow of scandal.
