Friday, April 15
So, on this fabulous Friday I thought I would post some of the fun things I found while blogging this week:
First we have Charlotte Bronte on Twitter :) I found this while preparing the Eileen Dreyer post about plain Jane's and loved it! You can create your own Charlotte quote by filling in the blank and posting to Twitter. While I don't really do Twitter that much I thought this was a ton of fun. If you post something, please post it here in the comments as well so that we can all enjoy!
Then I saw this book video that I thought was all kinds of fun and new I just had to include it in today's post. It is for Sarah MacLean's upcoming historical romance Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart. I guarantee it will at least put a smile on your face :) It actually made me more than smile it made me chuckle...and want to read the book, like now!
Then I also saw that Eloisa James has a novella freebie on Amazon, but it doesn't release until April, 26th so you can only pre-order it. I found this a little perplexing, because if it was free why it wasn't available now and only for preorder? Maybe it won't be free for long. I don't know, but I snagged it right away. The cover is also different than it was yesterday too...a mystery. Anyways, the title is A Fool Again, and was her novella in the anthology The One That Got Away with Cathy Maxwell , Liz Carlyle, & Victoria Alexander. I checked the other novellas in the Kindle store and they only appear in the anthology and not individually so it looks like this will be a promotional tool since the publisher is releasing the anthology in Kindle version on May 11th.
p.s. Eloisa has said that this novella has one of her very favorite first lines:
"A well-bred lady never ogles a man from behind her black veil, especially during her husband's burial."
Finally, who doesn't love a contest with lots of giveaways? The "Danger: Women Writing Contest" begins today with lots of prizes including an e-reader, books, gift cards....I don't need to know more to know that I will be making a stop there every day!
Do you have something fun to share this Friday that you came across this week? Feel free to share in the comments! Have a great weekend!
