Weekly Announcements - 30 July 2010

Many of our Unusual Historicals contributors are still at the RWA National Conference in Orlando this week. Best wishes and safe travels to all who attend! We'll be back next week with more updates.

Congratulations to Margaret Mallory, whose KNIGHT OF PLEASURE is a "Fresh Pick!" at Fresh Fiction.

Michelle Styles let us know that Mills & Boon is running a contest for unpublished authors, with the main prize being publication of the winning book in one of the London-edited series. The details are at this website. Michelle is also doing one of the Masterclasses, held on September 1, 2010 at Knaresborough library in North Yorkshire. This Masterclass, presented by Mills & Boon, is designed to help showcase the contest opportunities. Best of luck to all who enter!

Join us Sunday when award-winning Carina Press and Harlequin Blaze Historicals author Hope Tarr will be here to chat about MY LORD JACK and THE TUTOR. She'll be giving away a digital copy of MY LORD JACK to one lucky commenter! Hope you join us then.

We'll also draw the winner of Carla Capshaw's THE PROTECTOR, an inspirational historical romance set in ancient Rome. 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! Frances Hunter, Donna Russo Morin, Liz Fichera, and Susanna Fraser will be our guests. Join us!

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...

Great books you have mentioned here. Loved KNIGHT OF PLEASURE. The covers on this series were gorgeous.
Hope Tarr's book sounds wonderful.
