Do you remember my review last week of What Kings Ate And Wizards Drank? No? Okay, I'll wait. Go ahead and check it out. It's worth it.
You're back. Good. Now on to what we have available today.
I so enjoyed the food aspect of history (and I'm not a history buff) that Krista delivered with What Kings Ate And Wizards Drank. Food affects and relates to EVERYTHING in the world. From sickness, the cultures, the society, monitary, emotions, and so much more. This is a book for everyone, whether you are into writing or not.
I'm excited that the next book is out.
Hustlers, Harlots, and Heroes is out today!!!
Get ready to step into the back alleys of Jane Austen and Charles Dickens's London, and explore the alternative worlds of steampunk in this new guide book by fantasy author Krista D. Ball. Ball takes readers on a fascinating journey into the world of the Have-Nots, and explores the bustling, crime-ridden London during the Georgian and Victorian eras.
Discover the world of knocker-uppers (it's not what you think), mudlarks, and costermongers. Learn how to scrub floors and polish knives, pick for bones, and catch rats. Learn about race and social status, and the difference between a lady's maid and a scullery maid.
With her usual wit, insight, and snark, Ball gives historical, romance, and steampunk authors the tools to create vibrant, realistic worlds. Whether you're an author, a Janeite, or just a fan of history, Hustlers, Harlots, and Heroes gives you a fresh look into the dark past.
Go and check it out.
