The Bernard Cornwell Bookgroup blog discusses everything related to the historical fiction author, including: novels (past, present and future), biographical information, suggested non-fiction as it relates to a particular series (e.g. – The Oxford Illustrated History of the Vikings by Peter Sawyer to go along with the medieval-based Saxon Series), news and resource links. Bernard Cornwell’s next installment in the Saxon Series is The Burning Land, due out January of 2010 according to Amazon. I like the cover a lot (right).
My life has been pretty simple. I grew up in Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's in Advertising. I have spent about the last ten years in web development. In 1998, a friend of mine and I started a web design company we ran for three or four years before deciding to close it due to the demands of school. Since then, I stayed in the web working with various companies in Alabama. I worked for a brief period with Southern Progress, namely with Southern Living magazine and Health magazine, in their web departments. While there, I also wrote for Southern Living magazine, Health.com., and the company's internal newsletter. I write as much as I can. For the last five years, I have been working on my first novel. I am on the third revision now and hope to be finished with this draft by the end of the year. I also write short fiction, though not as frequently as I used to due to the time I spend on the novel. My goal is to have my novel published in the next three years. Other interests include: History (particularly medieval and ancient civlizations), Reading, Foreign Language (I currently speak Spanish but plan to learn as many as I can), Landscape Photography, the outdoors, sports (especially college football), and Travel.
