400 Posts, a Pretty New Cover, and a Tombstone

I just noticed that my last post was my 400th post! Happy 400th post to me!

Also, I was excited to see that the pretty new cover for Hugh and Bess is now on Amazon. (Naturally, you might ask: "Where's Hugh?" He's there--trust me--probably just went out for an ale with the boys.)



And if you're fearing that I'm going to bang on about historical accuracy in historical fiction again, no worries. Instead, enjoy this cautionary message from Tombstone Generator:

Excellent choice of cover! A detail from one of my favourite paintings. :))

Congratulations! I finished your book (with the old cover) last weekend.

400! We all look up to you as the Mother of Our Bligging!

And the cover is indeed lovely and almost worthy of your terrific novel.

Have you ever done a trailer for one of your books. I have been embroiled in making one am now fascinated by them.

Thanks, all! As Ninon knows, it's from Judith and Holofernes by Allori, Cristofano (1577-1621).

Nan, I did a trailer for The Traitor's Wife before it was reissued. I need to go back and edit it to reflect the new cover (and maybe polish it a little). It's still on YouTube:

I've nominated your blog for an award. Details on my site :)

I like that cover! I like the cover for The Traitor's Wife, too. :) It will catch people's eyes in the bookstore, I am sure!

Great cover Susan! And congrats on the 400th! I'm about to do my 100th so I've got miles to go before I catch up with you ;-)
