All right, so I just want to let everyone here know as well (since I'm spreading the word) that my blog tour for my newest novel On a Foreign Field: A Story of Loyalty and Brotherhood starts tomorrow. I'll be doing giveaways for copies and an amazon gift card as well as a free ebook day, so stop by on a few of the blogs to read interviews and guest posts so you can learn more about me as a writer and my books (and also a little of what is coming next!) I would love to see you there, but no obligation of course :P

Here's the link to the itinerary: http://hazelwest.blogspot.com/2012/08...

Trust me, I know. I try to balance reading and writing, but sometimes one overshadows the other, and it's usually writing. My characters are very demanding at times ;) Thats okay, I still have to rustle up money to buy your books. I really want to read your new one. I do like to support my fellow authors after all =)

Pauline Montagna (pauline_montagna) My name is Pauline Montagna, and my book, Not Wisely but Too Well, is being launched today. I'm holding a Free Giveaway between today and November 29 on Goodreads, but if you can't wait until then, take advantage of my Book Launch Special Offer. Until Tuesday November 20th, you can get a FREE EBOOK copy from Smashwords, (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...) or a HALF PRICE PRINT COPY from Lulu (http://www.lulu.com/shop/pauline-mont...).

Keep a look out for my Q&A which will begin around December 15. My website is at http://paulinemontagna.net.


How did Will Shakspere of Stratford-upon-Avon, the son of illiterate parents, with barely a grammar school education, become the greatest playwright the English theatre will ever know? How did he learn his craft? How did he gain the knowledge his plays display? What was his own experience of the love, passion, pain and ambition he wrote into every line?

This is the story of how that journey began.

message 17: by Kathryn (new)

Kathryn (KAHohmann) | 12 comments Inspired by a true story of Rebel soldiers who disappeared in the aftermath of a Civil War battle.

It's 1899 in central Maryland when Tess McPherson marries into the powerful Wakefield family and moves to their historic estate, Soldiers Rest. Strolling the property, she finds an old abandoned greenhouse. Its panels are glass plate negatives from the Civil War era. In the panes, she can see the faces of Rebel soldiers. Who are they and why do they haunt her dreams? Tess is surrounded by wealth, tradition and a deadly secret. Check it out here at Soldiers Rest or at http://www.soldiers-rest.com

C.P. Lesley (cplesley) | 339 comments Hi, folks:
This is to let you know that my giveaway for The Golden Lynx starts at midnight tonight and runs to March 25 (that is, it ends 11:59 pm on March 24): two signed copies to anywhere in the United States.

If you belong to Historical Fictionistas, I am running a second giveaway there, for group members only, in conjunction with the upcoming group read, starting midnight tonight and ending 9 am EST on Feb. 15. I'm arranging that one myself, so it's one print copy for the US (e-book optional) plus two e-books overseas (ePub or MOBI). To enter that one, send me a PM that includes the name of your country. The mod has been sick and hasn't announced this one yet, but you can find out more at http://www.cplesley.com/home/hf-group....

Good luck!

message 49: by Al "Tank" (new)

Al "Tank" (alkalar) Myk Prince of the Vends by D. E. Zlotnik Myk Prince of the Vends is a blockbuster action adventure set in the 2nd century. Newly released by AKW Books as an eBook, it's available for a limited time for free to anyone who'll agree to post an honest review on Amazon and GoodReads.

Offer expires Friday June 7th, 2013.

Send me a note if you're interested in this offer and I'll give you a one-time only coupon for Smashwords (so you can get any format that works with your eReader).

Contacting anyone on Goodreads is also easy. Click on the person's icon, then choose "send message" just to the right of the "follow reviews" button which is near their picture or icon.

* Editors note: "This is one of the best stories I've ever worked."

Description:

An epic historical, action adventure, set in the 2nd century AD.

A remnant tribe from the once great Celtic nation, the Vends, is under attack by the slave trading Alan tribes, the warlike Suebi, and an evil Druid priest. Just to make things worse, famine and disease stalk the land.

What if, a small cavalry unit from the Roman empire, encountered a Mongol detachment of explorers, and fought a pitched skirmish? What if the Vends observed the skirmish and captured both the Roman and the Mongol survivors? Could the combined cultures produce a very powerful Vend tribe under the enlightened leadership of Lech and his wife Slava?

A highly-researched, fictional story.

Rated "R"

259,000 words (Roughly equivalent to 970 pages in a mass market paperback).
