Today is the first day of my first-ever blog tour. Yes, I am on tour – complete with roadie crew and a full schedule of sound-checks, special effects rehearsals and backing dancer warm-ups… Erm, OK, perhaps I made that bit up. I would like a tour bus though… just a small one – anyone?
Ahem. OK. First stop: the very fantastic and wonderful Bookzone (for Boys) – an excellent book website which you don’t actually have to be a boy to read. Today I’m writing about the connection between Darth Vader and Henry VIII. You can check out my piece here.
The tour continues all week, up to and past publication day for VIII on October 1st (bring out the bunting!). I feel very privileged to have been invited to appear as a guest on so many superb blogs. You can see the full itinerary here.
And earlier this month I posted a blog on The History Girls site about closing the gap, for readers, between the past and the present. Do let me know your views on this or any of my other pieces. I’m keen, as ever, to hear what you think.
Oh, bother – they’re yelling at me for a mic check. And the pantechnicon full of biscuits (my rider, obviously) hasn’t turned up yet. Emergency! Must dash…
