HT News

Just when I think I am all challenged out someone comes along and posts a new challenge that is so tempting. Lucy from Enchanted by Josephine has just announced a new challenge for those of us who like to read about French history. The challenge is called the French Historicals: Oh La La challenge, and the button is lovely!

Catherine Delors, author of Mistress of the Revolution, which would be a perfect book for the French Historical challenge, has interviewed Dolen Perkins-Valez, author of Wench. There is a giveaway for US and Canadian residents as well.

Congratulations to the shortlisted and winning authors of the ALA 2010 Reading List Awards. The winner of the Historical Fiction category was Bernard Cornwell's Agincourt, and the shortlisted novels were Cleopatra’s Daughter by Michelle Moran, Etta by Gerald Kolpan, Grace Hammer by Sara Stockbridge, and The Owl Killers by Karen Maitland. Lauren Willig, who recently guest posted for us, was nominated for her novel, The Temptation of the Night Jasmine.

Alaine from Queen of Happy Endings is giving away a set of Sharon Latham's books, Mr & Mrs Fitzwilliam Darcy, Loving Mr Darcy and My Dearest Mr Darcy, as well as guest posting.
