Sunday Foreign Post Roundup

1.  Edgar A. Poe's brother.  Did you know he was around past the time the boys were separated at young ages?  Ahhh...lots to learn from Undine at The World of Edgar Allan Poe!

2.  Care for a sneak peak into the WIP of author Kristi Chestnutt?  Then click here!

3.  A writing contest fit for October at Hannah Kinkade's Musings of a Palindrome.  And there are prizes, lots of prizes.

4.  Modern art meets Marie Antoinette...plus an interesting story about the French Swat equivalent, by author Cara Black.

5.  A post of gun-shaped objects.  Seriously cool for the crime writer thanks to Janet Rudolph at Mystery Fanfare.

6.  Vichy.  Is it a word that makes you sad or ambivalent?  Learn about some of France's true power in the country's victimization during WWII, posted by Cara Black. on Murder is Everywhere.


  1. Michele - Thanks, as always, for these terrific posts! :-). And I can vouch the one at Janet Rudolph's blog - what a great set of must-haves if you write mysteries :-)

  2. Some wonderful links to check out today. Thanks.

  3. Cool links. By the way. I love to travel from the comfort of my own home so I can't wait until your write around the world week.


  4. I don't like guns, but the post on gun-shaped objects was cool. Also, the history of Marie Antoinette is very interesting. Her comment to the starving people is hilarious: "If the people don't have bread, let them eat cake" >:)
