Not long ago, I talked about building a brand – an author brand. In concert with the work I’ve been doing on the M.K. Tod brand with Katie Birks Branding and Design, I’m also working on a new look and feel for A Writer of History. I want new and long-time followers to find information that’s useful to their interests, whether that be reading or writing historical fiction, research techniques, writing craft, reader surveys, book recommendations and so on.
With Katie’s excellent guidance, we’ve come up with a new design for A Writer of History that will launch soon.
Here’s a glimpse of what to expect:
A fresh look with posts accessible by topic:

Information about my novels and link to my author website
In addition, there’s a compilation of author advice based on interviews with top historical fiction authors and others; a collection of posts on the craft of writing, as distinct from writing historical fiction. I’ve also pulled together most of the posts relating to the 7 elements of historical fiction.
With luck, the new looks for M.K. Tod and A Writer of History will complement and reinforce one another.
The last two months have been busy! I’ll be back soon to announce the launch.
