I am very pleased to announce that The Sister Queens is a TOP PICKS of 2012 for historical fiction at Let Them Read Books (and in the august company of CW Gortner and Robin Maxwell no less).  See which books made Jenny’s list for historical fiction, historical romance and historical fantasy and enter to WIN a title of your choice as part of the “Historical Holiday Blog Hop”.

As I mentioned in my last post, the marvelous Genevieve Graham is running a “Books for Christmas” promotion all month to introduce you to ten author’s whose books would make brilliant holiday gifts.  She’s even offering you a chance to win their books to slip into the stockings of someone you love (or to install on your own bedside table as the case may be).

Today it’s my turn.  Since you’re here at my blog I presume you’ve already met me (*waves cheerfully*).  But if you haven’t read The Sister Queens yet here is your chance to have a sneak peek inside the book and meet Marguerite of Provence, Queen of France, on her WEDDING NIGHT!  In addition, there is a chance for you to win the entire book for yourself or—if you’ve already read it (bless you)—to give as a holiday gift to a historical fiction lover on your list.  When you arrive at Genevieve’s promotion page if I am not at the top of the post just scroll down — I am the December 7th feature.

Share/Save

Here’s an event that incorporates three of my favorite words – “free,” “books,” and “Christmas.”  Author Genevieve Graham (Under the Same Sky & Sound of the Heart) has put together a marvelous two week celebration of books as holiday gifts—everyday a different author will be featured with an excerpt from her/his work and A BOOK TO WIN!!!
