  5. I’m so happy that I found your blog. I have written a novel taking place in 13th century Cologne and now blog about the Middle ages a bit. Thanks for listing some other great blogs, too. I would love it if you took a look at my latest article. I’ve put the link below. I also noticed that you have a Goodreads list. I would be happy to send you a free copy of my novel if you are interested in doing a review. No pressure though. I’m sure you’re quite busy.
