2020 Vision: The Old Shelter - Sarah Zama's author blog (#AtoZChallenge)

#AtoZChallenge 2020 badge


The team decided our theme for this month's posts here would be a take "2020 visions of blogging." This set of posts focuses on:

A Blog with 2020 Vision



Do you like historical fiction? How about historical fantasy? Are you excited to be living in the 20s again? How about escaping into the 1920s?

Sarah Zama is a long time participant of the A to Z Challenge with her blog called The Old Shelter. This is her sixth year joining us! Since as an author she works with the past - specifically, the 1920s - I thought she would be a perfect candidate for being featured in our "2020 Vision" series!

Sarah's challenge posts are always a delight to read. This year, her theme is Living in the Twenties! In the past she has done other themes related to her research work for historical fiction:

2015 - The Roaring Twenties
2016 - Jazz Age jazz: early jazz as a social phenomenon
2017 - 1940s film noir
2018 - The Weimar Republic
2019 - Berliner Cabaret

What I especially love about Sarah's posts is that they are extremely well researched and well organized. I always learn a lot from them. And what makes her an even better participant: she always visits back!

Sarah is an author who writes historical fantasy, focusing on the 1920s - or as she describes it, 1920s Dieselpunk Noir. It's history mixed with fantasy, and some fairy tale elements. If you want to find out more about her stories, follow this link!

If you haven't visited Sarah's blog yet, stop by and say hi to her!
You can also follow her on Twitter and Facebook.

Doomsday machines are usually born with a vision from a villainous mastermind... and the ones in Vryn are no exception.

Sometimes it is necessary to applaud others and that too publically, especially people who make a difference in others’ lives – the valiant ones. https://hopelesslyyhopefull.blogspot.com/2020/04/the-valiant-ones-those-who-make.html

It looks like someone left some spam in comments. Anywho, thanks for introducing Sara to us today. I will pop in on her to say hi. I'm more or less MIA in Blogosphere since it's the weekend but for anyone interested in checking Cathy's Pinup Girl Art Sketch Series 'V' I hope you'll stop by and don't forget to leave a link back to your place so I can do a return visit. Y'all have a good week now. Be well and stay safe, my friends!
