HT News

I am very, very behind on my blog reading, so expect this issue of HT News to be huge in terms of giveaways! Here goes.

One of our favourite historical fiction bloggers, Meghan from Medieval Bookworm, is going to be appearing on That's How I Blog a bit later in the year, and she is going to be talking about The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England by Ian Mortimer. To help other's read the book before the radio appearance, Meghan is giving away three copies of the book to anyone with a US address.
