Countdown to Smugglivus – Week 4 Calendar

Smugglivus is coming! Smugglivus is coming!

These are the final days of the countdown and then on the 26th, Smugglivus *officially* starts! Yay!

So this is what we have lined up this week for you:

Monday – Susan Holloway Scott: writer of historical fiction. Susan’s unique historical fiction series tells the stories of different mistresses to King Charles II. We read and loved her 2008 release, The King’s Favorite. For her guest post, Susan will talk about her favorite novel of the year–coincidentally, written by an author we have already had over for Smugglivus!–and give us a teaser of her upcoming novel, The French Mistress. We will also be giving away a copy of The King’s Favorite!

Tuesday – Meljean Brook: writer of Paranormal romance. Her Guardian series is one of the best out there at the moment and we are admittedly Meljean Brook fangirls. Meljean is the last guest author we have for our Smugglivus countdown, and she will send us out in style with her best of 2008 post!

Wednesday – We will have a special post from Dorchester Publishing with a list of books they have coming out in 2009 and a fantastic Smugglivus-Christmas giveaway!

Thursday Merry Christmas. The fantastic Smugglivus-Christmas giveaway will end on Thursday.


Smugglivus Cometh!

    Dudes, I need a cool blog name. *sigh*

    I have a subtitle on my LJ, 'Writing, Life & Soul' but it's a bit New Agey… *g*
