Hello and welcome to the third day of my blog tour for Pack of Lies, and thanks so much to my host for the day.

Wow, I can hardly believe that I did so much research for a book that it warrants more than one blog post. But this one did—it’s a 96,000 word thriller with historical elements, sex, romance and werewolves. It’s the historical elements and the setting that meant this book needed so much research—I wanted to make sure I was getting it right, since I was writing about fiction based on fact, and a story set in a real place.

I mentioned in my previous posts (see the rest of the tour here: http://www.writermarketing.co.uk/prpromotion/blog-tours/currently-on-tour/lucy-felthouse-11/) that this book is partially based on real events, namely the plague hitting a Derbyshire village in the 1600s. It was for this reason that I needed to get those facts straight. The majority of the book takes place in modern day, but the events of the “now” are very much tied in with what happened then. And so I made sure I knew exactly what happened then. The internet was my friend, of course, with lots of information at my fingertips. But I also went on several research trips to the village, taking plenty of photos and plenty of notes, as well as visiting the museum and asking lots of questions of the staff—who were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. I was also able to get my hands on some non-fiction books and maps that helped me keep things straight in my head as I began to plan the book. It was time-consuming, and I ended up with lots of notes before I even wrote a word of fiction, but it was worth it. I’m really happy with the finished article, and I hope readers will enjoy it, too.

Check out the photos on my Pinterest board: http://www.pinterest.com/cw1985/pack-of-lies/

The book has been incredibly well received so far, with lots of four and five star reviews—so if you’re a paranormal romance fan, I hope you’ll check it out! Also, don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

Happy Reading,

Lucy x
