A short note before I introduce out Silken Sands editors. I’m blogging today at The Writers Vineyard on Avoiding the Dreaded Anachronism, my search for accuracy while researching for Amazona, a story about a Pictish Princess who bargains with a Roman nobleman for help in searching for her kidnapped brother. You can check it out at http://thewritersvineyard.com/ .
