Weekly Announcements - 06 Mar 2010

Congratulations to Blythe Gifford who has signed another three-book contract with the Harlequin Historical line. She's well underway with the first, which should be released sometime in 2011. It's set in the 17th century Scottish lowlands, so she maintains her credentials as a member of the Unusual Historicals team!


Jennifer Mueller's HISTORY LESSONS won Sensual Reads' 2009 Readers Choice Award. GHOSTS IN THE NIGHT, her novella set in 1920s Ceylon, is available now. And her Regency romance, A RUINED SEASON, is out in large print hardback from Thorndike. Congratulations on all these achievements!


Michelle Styles' THE VIKING'S CAPTIVE PRINCESS is out in Spain as Una princesa indomable. In addition, THE VIKING'S CAPTIVE PRINCESS, A QUESTION OF IMPROPRIETY, and the upcoming COMPROMISING MISS MILTON, and will be released as the May 3-in-1 offering in Australia.


Join us Sunday when Unusual Historicals contributor Lisa Marie Wilkinson will be here to chat about her second romance with Medallion Press, STOLEN PROMISE, set in early 19th century South Carolina. She'll also be giving away a copy. Don't miss it!


We'll also draw the winner of TOO WICKED TO KISS from Erica Ridley's recent guest appearance. You still have time to leave a comment or question for your chance to win.


Stay with us through the coming weeks when we'll be featuring the best unusual historical authors! Elizabeth Lane, Lorelie Brown, Deborah Schneider, and Jennifer Blake will be our guests. We hope you'll join us!


Have a good weekend! Remember, you don't have to be an Unusual Historicals contributor to submit good news to the weekend announcements. If it has to do with unusual historicals, we'd love to shout it out to the world! Send announcements to Carrie. See you next week...

I just found your blog - what a treasure trove this is! I am unpublished - my first book set in the 1880's in Boston and Nova Scotia, and I know it will make the job of breaking into a tough market even harder, but it was the story I needed to tell. I love different settings as a reader - so great to find an awesome reading list right here!
