has announced that the Royal Mistress Challenge will be back in 2011. There have been a couple of changes to the rules, and there's a fabulous new button too, so head on over to see whether this might be a challenge that will interest you in 2011.
Speaking of challenges, Holly from Bippity Boppity Book has announced that she is running the Chivalrous Deeds: A Historical Fiction Reading Challenge for 2011. All the details can be found here.
Some time in December we will put up a post of all the historical fiction challenges that we know about for next year.
In the last edition of HT News I mentioned a giveaway of The Mischief of the Mistletoe by Lauren Willig, along with a Christmas ornament at Peeking Between the Pages. The are a number of these giveaways happening at the moment to celebrate the imminent release of the last Pink Carnation book, and I can see why because the idea of going away a Christmas Ornament is such a fun idea! Other opportunities to win can be found at Historically Obsessed, Passages to the Past, and if you keep your eye out you may well see something similar here later in the week. Just don't tell anyone here that you heard it from me!
