Tansy and I wrote a post for John Scalzi’s Big Idea series over at his blog. If you are interested in knowing more about how Cranky Ladies of History came to be, check it out here!
Some of our wonderful authors have given us guest blogs about their cranky lady and the writing of their stories. So far we have shared Havva Murat’s journey with Nora of Kelmendi and Juliet Marillier has talked about Hildegard of Bingen.
We’re starting to see some lovely reviews for the book:
Shelleyrae at Book’d Out said: “Cranky Ladies of History is an important collection of fiction that gives voice to an extraordinary selection of women from a broad range of backgrounds, eras and cultures. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.”
At Adventures of a Bookonaut, Sean was very complimentary about Cranky Ladies, saying the book is “a unique project in that it delivers entertainment while spotlighting 22 women of history that we should all know more about, even if it’s for the simple reason that their stories are different to those we are used to hearing.”
Katharine at VentureAdlaxre comprehensively considered the anthology, giving it five stars!
