Anchors Aweigh for the Nautical Blog Hop!

Next week this blog will be a port of call for Helen Hollick’s Nautical Blog Hop.  Thank you Helen for all the work you have put into this.  The Home Port for the Hop is http://ofhistoryandkings.blogspot.com

Helen has brought together 23 authors, ranging from popular authors such as Julian Stockwin to newcomers like myself, from all across the English-speaking world, each of whom has written a story with a nautical theme.  My contribution is ‘Blood, Ice and Honour’ which you will find on a page on this blog (about the Greenland vikings) and the 22 other links are listed below.

The Hop runs from 17 to 21 September, so tuck in to a nautical feast.

Bon Voyage

PS  Since posting the list of links for the Blog Hop I have been away in Dorset, researching for my next novel, and while I was away the list was amended several times.  Best call at the Home Port for an up-to-date list.

Judith Starkson has asked to note that her link is now judithstarkson.com/articles/the-wonders-of-bronze-age-shipwrecks.

My contribution to the Hop, BLOOD, ICE AND HONOUR, is not related to any other work I have written, but since several other hoppers have given pieces of their forthcoming work you might like to see the prologue to THE FROZEN DREAM, another arctic adventure which I plan to publish shortly.  It is based on the Chancellor-Willoughby expedition to open a trade route to China over the north Pole in 1552.  You will find it on the page entitled ‘Frozen Dream’.
