The theme is “Interview my Character”, so the authors are letting their characters loose on other authors’ blogs! Be prepared to read about some fascinating characters from a range of eras from Roman Britain up to the 20th century. Fans of historical fiction will also discover new authors and brilliant reads.
Saturday 29th June: Vanessa Couchman’s budding opera singer Marie-Thérèse from her recently-published novel, Overture, will be interviewed on Stephanie Churchill’s blog.
Saturday 6th July: Nicky Moxey interviews Nancy Jardine’s Roman General, Gnaeus Iulius Agricola, from Agricola’s Bane, the fourth in her exciting Celtic Fervour series.
Wednesday 10th July: Sarah Dahl interviews Geoffrey de Mortagne, a man torn between an oath and his duty, from Cathie Dunn’s, Dark Deceit, published by Crooked Cat Books.
You can follow the blog hop on its dedicated Facebook page. And we’ll post links to our Ocelot characters’ interviews on the blog here as and when they are published.
