Native American (History)

I recently reviewed the second in an alternate history series positing Roman incursions into North America at the time of the mound builders. This made me curious about just how much is known since my memory said very little. I found this article answered the question in detail, though being from 2011, more might have been discovered.

Facebook (Promoting)

A look at the rules on Facebook and the consequences if you are chosen as an example. I recently learned about one regarding giveaways that I hadn’t known because “everyone” does it that way, so it’s a worthwhile thing to read.

Jane Austen (Writing)

Jane Austen is one of the writers who influenced my Uncommon Lords and Ladies series so this Jane Austen thesaurus is an interesting resource. I’m already checking the etymology of the words I use to ensure they’re in period, but this might be a handy way to find appropriate alternatives…or it could just be used for fun. Plug in any word and it’ll display similar words used in Austen’s texts.
