Just so you know, this is what I spent the last ten weeks doing:
It’s the companion volume to a new PBS historical drama about nurses in the Civil War. The PBS series uses a real Civil War hospital as the setting for a fictionalized (and quite gorgeous) drama. (Check out some of promotional pieces on YouTube here.) My book uses the same Civil War hospital to look at the stories of historical nurses.
Between now and February, when the book comes out, you can expect some Civil War posts (because I have great stuff I couldn’t use), some nursing posts (ditto), and a certain amount of “my book! my book!” (because, “my book! my book!).
Now if you’ll excuse, I have a date with fifteenth century Portugal.
Don’t touch that dial.
