Heartfelt thanks to Mary and the rest of the Legal History Blog for warmly welcoming me as a guest this month. I am also very grateful to all of you who commented on this series of posts on the process of writing a first book, both on and off the blog.
A couple of readers requested a central set of links to each post in the series; here it is.
Thanks for reading!
