Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Thanks for posting that, Ludmilla. I am currently following all the e-reading and e-selling trends as I try to tailor my launch plan to the places and reading formats where the readers who will enjoy my particular brand hang out.

I am reconsidering the source of my ereading and it may mean that for a while I go back to buying real books. Amazon is just so convenient but I am not sure I am willing to pay over quite so much money to a company that doesn't pay tax in the UK. Oh well, I have been thinking I really should use Waterstones more to buy my ebooks but it's just not quite so simple as using Amazon.
