TTBA Weekly News and Mailbox Monday

This feature was inspired by It's Monday! What are you reading? hosted by Sheila at Book Journey and by The Sunday Salon.


Last week I didn't do a weekly news/Mailbox Monday post.  Had to take a week off.  You know how it is sometimes.

NEWS


You all know me (most of you anyway).  I don't really do anything in a small way.  Nowhere is it more evident than in the number of blogs I host.  LOL! My most recent venture?  I have launched a history blog over on Wordpress.  I am very passionate about history and so I just decided to take the plunge and start a blog totally dedicated to the subject of history.  The new blog is called A Brave Heart.  I hope you'll stop by and check out my first post about William Wallace, who is the inspiration behind the name of the blog.  The post:  The Inspiration...William Wallace.

EVENTS


Marie and I are hosting a read-a-long of Forever Amber by Kathleen Winsor over at our blog, Historical Fiction Connection.  It runs from March 18 through April 14.  Head over to the blog and read this POST for all the details.  Would love for you to join us!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!
