Robin Maxwell has announced winners of her O'Juliet Love Games. Head on over to have a look at the winning poems!

I love looking at covers, (hence our Cover Story feature), and I love it when we get a bit of insight into the process behind creating a new cover. Elizabeth Chadwick has given us just that over at her blog - a look at the process of developing the cover for her upcoming UK release To Defy a King.

Sarah from Reading the Past has posted about the best selling historical fiction of 2009. How many have you read, or more pertinently how many have you bought!

Chris from Book-a-rama has announced a new challenge that may be of interest to some of our readers. Starting on May 13, you can participate in the Daphne du Maurier challenge. Click on the link for all the details.

Nymeth from Things Mean A Lot has also announced a 1930's mini-challenge.

Maria from Fly High! is featuring Laurel Ann from Austen Prose in her My Blogger Buddies event. There is also a chance for two people to choose from a selection of books in the associated giveaway. By the way, our very own Ana was featured last week, so if you want to find out more about Ana head on over and see what she had to say!

Charles from Ten Pages (or More) is hosting a Wolf Hall live book readalong, disecting sections and providing quotes and more relevant to the book.

Wonders and Marvels are thinking about redesigning and they are looking for your input! Head over here to let them know what they should or should not change!
