The D.B. Jackson Summer 2012 THIEFTAKER Blog Tour is now fully underway.  Yesterday I wrote about "What Authors of Historical Fiction Owe to History" at "A Dribble of Ink," the wonderful blog site of Aidan Moher.  Today the tour continues with a post I've written for the blog of my friend Barbara Ashford, a terrific writer with whom I share not only a passion for history, but also personal roots in the New York area.  Barbara writes as both Barbara Ashford and Barbara Campbell, and so my post, which is on blending fantasy with history, can be found here or here

I hope you enjoy both posts.

Thanks very much, Jennifer. Glad you enjoyed the article. The balance between accuracy and storytelling is one that I struggle with constantly in the Thieftaker books and stories. I push hard to be accurate -- the historian in me demands it -- right up until the point when my story starts to suffer. But its a hard line to tread, and I'm still working on it. Thanks for the comment.
