Introducing my new blog

The publication of Murder Fortissimo by Harlequin has prompted me to start a blog. The idea is to reach out to a wider readership, hopefully some in North America and other parts of the world, and to offer a taste of what it’s like living just outside Winchester, the ancient capital of England, hence the blog title: “Nicola Slade’s Winchester Mysteries”. The sub-heading is “Histories & Mysteries” which gives me lots of scope for blog–posts! I do hope you’ll join me at my blog.
