September is a wonderful month for new releases in historical fiction. One such anticipated release is Michelle Moran's new novel, The Heretic Queen. Following on the success of her debut novel, Nefertiti, the blogosphere is all excited about the shiny new hardcover that they will be holding in their hands in a couple weeks time! Considering that Elizabeth Chadwick and Sharon Kay Penman both have books out shortly, I am sure that Michelle feels very honoured to be held in the same ranks! Especially considering we have not been waiting nearly as long for her new novel as we have been waiting for Penman's!
Michelle's week will be similar to what I did for Nefertiti last year. There will be an interview, she has written a piece that she will be sharing, and then there is, of course, a give-away! Yay!
I am pleased to be able to give-away TWO copies of The Heretic Queen! I also believe these are signed copies, so you have two chances to win! In order to be entered, you have to do one of the following or all of the following or just some of the following. Your choice!
1. Comment on the posts throughout the week of her visit. Ask questions, offer opinions, etc. This entitles you to one entry, but if I feel like a person has gone above and beyond to make Michelle feel welcome, I am open to giving them a double entry.
2. Post about this contest and her week visit on your blog. This has to be done before she appears, of course. Be sure and comment on this post and let me know that you have done so, otherwise I may not see and then you are not going to be entered!
3. Submit a review of either Nefertiti, or if you are really lucky, The Heretic Queen. At the end of the week I will post a pit of a collage of all the thoughts on Michelle's book in the hopes of attracting more readers to her wonderful writing! This does not have to be new. If you read Nefertiti last year and reviewed it, it still counts!
"Michelle Moran Week" will run from September 14 to September 20! So, mark it on your calendar and be sure to stop on over! The give-away will close at 11:59PM.... Eastern Time Zone, I guess. My time zone is rather selective, but most people know where they fall in regards to the Eastern Time Zone. And be sure to pick up your copy of her new book when it comes on sale on September 16!
