When I first wrote my medieval novels, I never imagined it would lead to connecting with some amazingly creative and talented people across the globe. You never know where creativity will take you!
If you like things with a medieval flair, here's a couple of resources to check out:
Nan Hawthorne brings you a searchable database of medieval novels at http://medieval-novels.com/. She has everything categorized by location as well as by time period. She's even started adding movies and TV to the mix. If you search the collection and know of a book that's missing, or are the author of a book that fits the time period, you can use her Add a Book feature to add the book to the database. I've just added the first two books of my medieval Cumbria Trilogy. Nan is also and author and she's agreed to be a guest here on Write About, so check back soon to learn more about Nan's many talents!
The amazing array of clothing and accessories at http://www.sharpe-designs.com/ will put you in the mood for medieval, celtic, and fantasy worlds. Their romantic, gothic, medieval, witchy, pagan clothing designs don't skimp on either flair or fashion. But that's not all. They carry jewelry and gifts, handbags, gloves, scarves, wallets, greeting cards and exotic perfume bottles. Sharpe Designs graciously allowed the use of their photo of a blue velvet dress for the cover of A Lady of Worth. Don't miss the Dragonesque Gallery which showcases some of the most creative uses of their wares. http://www.sharpe-designs.com/dragonesque-gallery.htm
If you're an author, has your writing taken you into new areas that you wouldn't have explored before? If you're a reader, are there books you've read that lead you in a new direction in your life?
