Michelle Moran Week

When I set the dates for this week, I entirely forgot that it was Book Blogger Appreciation Week. I set them back in like June or July, so forgive me for claiming the week for something else. Michelle Moran's new book, Cleopatra's Daughter, releases on the 15th, so I wanted to encourage everyone when it would be possible to rush right out and buy her new book!

This is the third year in a row that Michelle has been featured on this blog. We are very happy to have her back again!

Today, I am going to announce the give-away. It is open internationally. There are two prizes:

- Paperback copy of The Heretic Queen
- Hardcover copy of Cleopatra's Daughter and a pair of Cleopatra Earrings!

Both book prizes will be signed copies!

To enter, you simply have to comment on the posts this week. You CAN say stuff like "Count me in" or whatever, but I would prefer if you tried to contribute a bit more. Even just welcome Michelle to the blog. Each comment will earn you one entry in the give-away.

Contest Ends September 19, 2009 at midnight. I will announce the winner within the next couple days after that.


  1. I have Cleopatra's Daughter pre-ordered at Amazon and plan to dive into the book as soon as it arrives next week!

    It has been a long time since I've read anything set in the ancient world, and I'm very much looking forward to the trip.

  2. Welcome to the blog, Michelle. I've been finding you all over the Net lately in reader blogs. Nice!

  3. We're spreading the Michelle love this week too! Didn't you just love Cleopatra's Daughter? She has to be one of my favourite authors.

  4. Just finished Cleopatra's Daughter and loved it. Michelle is rapidly becoming one of my favorite historical fiction authors.

  5. I haven't read anything from Michelle yet, but after hearing so much about her, I think it's time I did!

  6. From reading other blogs, this sounds like a wonderful book! Looking forward to reading more about Michelle and her books this week on your blog. I have never read any historical fiction about this time period - sounds like it is time to expand my repetoire.

  7. I've read Nefertiti; expecting a copy of Cleopatra's Daughter in the mail, but I'll definitely be commenting daily in hopes of winning Heretic Queen. Thanks for the Michelle Moran week.

  8. I've read The Heretic Queen but I'd love to have Cleopatra's Daughter!


  9. Oh... thank you SO much everyone!!! I'm very excited to be here and in possession of my own week! Ha-ha.

  10. I have heard so many good things about this author and her work, and have started becoming really interested in her stories. I am planning on reading Nefertiti, so I think the Heretic Queen would be a great book to win. Thanks for hosting this contest, and please include me!


  11. I love historical fiction, but have never heard of Michelle Moran before, so I'm looking forward to reading some of her books and suggesting Cleopatra's Daughter to my book clubs. Would love to win a book!

  12. I just discovered this blog, via The Written World. It is now going on my blogroll. I don't make enough time to read HF but that is going to change, to many great books out there and great authors! I haven't read Michelle Moran yet, but I am hearing about her everywhere!

  13. Hey Michelle!! I've been wanting to read Michelle's books forever and don't know why I haven't read them yet!! But I'd love to read Cleopatra's Daughter :D And the earrings would make a great present to my mom or sister :) Great giveaway!

  14. Oh please please let me win! I love Michelle Moran. I'm definitely going to own all her books. I won a copy of Nefertiti last year and brought it with me on our belated honeymoon trip to Egypt. Sigh.

    Anyway..."count me in!"

    So I can't resist to this giveaway. :) Please count me in.

  16. Sounds like a very interesting book. I haven't read a lot of historical fiction in the past but this makes me want to check it out.
    Definitely sounds like something I could get into.

    So count me in to the draw! :p
