Did you know wax tablets were used from 2000BC through to the 1800s for note-taking? They were heavily used in the medieval era. I have a few of my reviews lambasting me for including this “anachronistic” item – which baffles me. The steady, continuous use of the wax tablet is well documented.

Hurrah! I finally compiled my historical fiction short stories, set in the Copper Age during the Black Sea Deluge, into both an ebook box set and a paperback version. I know lots of you wait until I get the box sets done before you read, so you can read them all at once. They should be live shortly! If you’re interested in this one and would like a free set to review, let me know – this series doesn’t have a lot of reviews on it yet and could use some more. Thanks!
