Guest Post: Photobombed by Clare Lydon, Harper Bliss, and Mrs. Bliss

Today’s guest post is by TB Markinson. Pssst, I’m the run who runs I Heart Lesfic.

You may be wondering why I’m guest posting on my own website. Simply put, it’s to share stories about The Village Romance series. I was fortunate to take part in this trilogy with Clare Lydon and Harper Bliss, and I wanted to give readers glimpses behind the scenes.

Now, here’s the guest post.

Photobombed by Clare Lydon, Harper Bliss, and Mrs. Bliss

When I’m doing field research (doesn’t that sound fancy?) for a book, I tend to take a lot of photos. Then I’ll spend hours going over them.

During the lesbian road trip to the Cotswolds, I indeed took a ton of pictures, but it wasn’t until I got back to the US that I realized Clare Lydon, Harper Bliss, and Mrs. Bliss had been photobombing me the majority of the time.

Not only will I always have the trilogy to remember this trip, I have photographic evidence.

Did you read Clare’s bridge declaration? How about the inspiration for one of Harper’s characters?

One last photo. Here’s the four of us at The London Book Fair.
