As my anniversary blog-tour continues I’ve dropped in at A Chick Who Reads to talk about a scratchy but fascinating subject—the hair-shirt and its place in medieval regimes of self-mortification. But even if you are neither a devotee of hair-shirts as Louis IX of France was nor intrigued by them as I have been since childhood there’s good reason to check out my post. Chick is hosting a giveaway, one of THREE currently on-going.
Yep at the present moment there are THREE copies of The Sister Queens up for grabs in the blog-o-sphere. Besides Chick’s giveaway (which ends on October 19th), In the Hammock Blog is running a giveaway ending October 21st and Teddy Rose at So Many Precious Books So Little Time is hosting one that ends on October 25th. So spread the word to friends who’ve been waiting to read The Sister Queens until the time is right. That moment is now and with three chances to win their copy may be free. No hair-shirt necessary to win.
Can you believe it? I sure can’t. This week marks SEVEN months since The Sister Queens was published. To celebrate I am treating myself to a little exotic travel—virtual travel that is. Yes, with the help of the incomparable Amy Bruno of Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours I am on the road again beginning next Monday. There will be chances to win a copy of The Sister Queens, an interview, and a pair of guest posts including “Hair-shirts 101.” So please join me on my travels and we will celebrate seven months of book release madness together.
