Lucy from Enchanted by Josephine has a long weekend this weekend, and she is ready to party! It's Victoria Day weekend, and she is celebrating all thing Victoria (as in Queen Victoria), and we can all join in. Check out all the details at Enchanted by Josephine!
There's a new historical fiction author group blog in town. Check out Historical Belles and Beaus! The list of author's involved include a number who I either have read and enjoyed or I want to read and enjoy!
Susan Holloway Scott has just posted a preview from her upcoming novel, once again set in the court of Charles II, The Countess and the King. I can't wait to read more.
Have you noticed all the posts about Edith Pargeter's The Brothers of Gwynedd? Sourcebooks have just rereleased this book. Originally it was published as four separate books, but this time is being rereleased as one huge volume. To help promote the book, Sourcebooks have organised a Summer Reading Club where a number of bloggers are reading their way through this mammoth book. On Monday night at 7pm EST (US), Amy from Passages to the Past will be hosting a discussion of the first part of the book. It will be interesting to see what comes up in the discussion.
By Fire, By Water by Mitchell James Kaplan (5 copies - includes guest post) at Passages to the Past plus 2 copies (including guest post) at Historical-Fiction.com
