Have just seen a fascinating piece on everyday letters between Romans in Britain, showing them to be much like us today. Check out: h e r e
This is a blog about books and writing in which, I hope, the emphasis isn’t too much on me but instead is on books and writing generally. You’ll see a roll of pages which, if you’re reading this on your PC, will be on the right and, if you’re reading on a tablet, phone or other device could be anywhere (but you’ll know where to find it on your screen).
And there’s a new section: Life, the World and Everything. Why not flick over and take a look?
Latest News and Chat is in the And to Begin section, while older pieces are filed under Jottings. Writers may like to look at some musings on the writers’ life (mainly but not exclusively Crime Writers) collated as We Writers or at the How To Write A Damn Good Novel section, while pretty well anyone interested in books (and if you’re not, why are you here?) might take a peek at some attractive Ephemera of the Book Trade, a selection of Victorian Writers & Poets, some examples of Victorian Ways or the Have You Met? section (with a selection of rather curious literary characters).
But why am I telling you this, when with one simple click you can see any of these sections for yourself?
In summary then, this is a blog for writers and readers, for people who love books. (Though if you do want to know a little more about me or about any of my 20 or so books, check my website at Russell James ).
Most of my books, including those in Kindle versions, can be found at Amazon, by clicking here: Amazon
