'Dreaming of Books' Giveaway Hop

I am giving away one ecopy of Castles, Customs, and Kings: True Tales by English Historical Fiction Authors.

The book is an history anthology made up of posts from the English Historical Fiction Authors blog. With each topic being just a few pages long, it is the perfect book for short reads during a coffee break, for reading on the bus, or for a waiting room. Author Helen Hollick warns, however, "Readers are likely to become stuck in a comfy chair!"

Anyone who likes history or Britain would love to receive this book as a gift.

Elizabeth Chadwick said, "I think this will appeal to people across the board. It’ll make a perfect stocking filler for history buffs for Christmas. It’s companionable to read with a variety of different subjects, writing styles and approaches to history and historical research and can be dipped in and out of at leisure."

Other reviewers have said:

"If you are interested in nonfiction works on England, history, and/or royalty you will find a book that you will return to."

"I found the tales of queens and kings from the historical fiction I've loved and learned to treasure just absorbing in the small bites these authors provide."

"Actually, was mesmerized by it and took it in because it's written in small vignettes. "

"There is something for everyone, and something more again and again."

"I was surprised at the distinctly 'old-fashioned' feel of much of it.... I found the approach charming and reassuring."

"Just full of information on English history...all wonderfully compiled and edited...not one single dull entry!"
