Congratulations to the nominees of the Bruce Alexander Historical Mystery Award, which is for mysteries set before 1950. The prize is awarded at the Left Coast Crime festival which is being held Los Angeles in March. The nominees are:

Tasha Alexander - Tears of Pearl
Rhys Bowen - In a Gilded Cage
Rebecca Cantrell - A Trace of Smoke
Gary Phillips - Freedom’s Fight 
Jeri Westerson - Serpent in the Thorns

Over at Historically Obsessed, Lizzy J has shared a link of an interview with author Christine Trent in the Washington Post! Have to say, I want Christine Trent's library!

Allie from Hist-Fic Chick has another giveaway on her blog, this time for three copies of Prima Donna: a Novel by Megan Chance.

Teddy Rose is hosting a giveaway of The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova. Teddy (as in Historical Tapestry's very own Teddy) has also been undergoing a bit of a makeover at her blog so stop by and have a look!

The Historical Fiction Round Table is kicking off it's next event, this time for Robin Maxwell, and her upcoming release, O Juliet. I am sure there will be plenty of giveaways during the event. The first giveaway that I have seen is over at, where Arleigh is giving away a number of books from Robin Maxwell's backlist.
