We're both venturing away from our respective keyboards in the next weeks, and would love to meet any fellow Nerdy History Folk who are in the area. Don't be shy!
• Loretta will be a speaker at the annual "Let Your Imagination Take Flight" conference hosted by the New England Chapter of Romance Writers of America. The conference will take place April 24-25 at the Boston Marriott in Burlington, MA. She will also be taking part in the multi-author booksigning on April 25 that will be open to the public. Click here for more information and registration.
• Isabella will also be in the Boston area. Her talk about 18th c. lovers as part of the Valentine's Day program hosted by the Bostonian Society last month was one of the casualties of the monumental snow storms this winter. The even has been rescheduled for Thursday, March 26; click here for more information and tickets. There will be refreshments, plus a chance to meet Dolly and John Hancock (yes, really). Bonus: the Society will be giving away copies of Isabella's historical romance A Wicked Pursuit with every ticket, and she will also be signing copies of A Sinful Deception.
• More news: unable to resist, Isabella has jumped onto one more social media platform. You can now find her on Instagram as IsabellaBradfordAuthor; if you enjoy the Breakfast Links and the TNHG twitter feed (both of which, in modern parlance, Isabella "curates"), then there's much more of the same waiting for you on Instagram. This week Isabella is in Colonial Williamsburg, so look for plenty of pictures from 18th c. Virginia.
• And as a general announcement: we're both also on Facebook – here's Loretta's page, and here's Isabella's page - if you'd like to give us a Like. You can also find us in our Two Nerdy History Girl guise over on Pinterest, with lots of images that have inspired our books, more historical clothes & shoes, and other stuff we just plain like.
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
