UPDATE: We have a winner! Congratulations to Kristine – random.org pulled her name from the hat for the giveaway prize. Kristine wins a copy of Daughter of the Sky.
My latest historical novel, Daughter of the Sky, released on March 1st, and as a result I’ve been on the various online bookstores a lot, checking out my links, making sure everything is as it should be, and so on. And in my cyber travels, I’ve stumbled across a couple of new-to-me authors. I thought it would be fun to put a list of historical authors together for this post so that the MM readers can discover them, too. Some I’ve read, some I haven’t, but something about their work intrigued me, and some are on this list because, well, they are awesome, I know them, and I think you’ll think they’re awesome, too, if you give their books a read.
I decided to only include authors that had a book out at $4.99 or less. That’s just about the cost of a cup of coffee where I come from, and certainly you could be willing to give a book a chance for the same price you’d spend on the beverage of your choice at your local café. This is a great way to try them out and see if you like them.
So without further ado, here is my list (and bear in mind pricing could change, but this is what it was on the day of posting):
Fellow Magical Musings co-bloggers
Amy Atwell: Ambersley (This book is actually on special for $0.99 right now, so there really is nothing to lose and one heck of a lot to gain.)
Lori Brighton: To Seduce an Earl (Go get it for $2.99.)
Michelle Diener: Daughter of the Sky (My new release, set in Zululand at the outbreak of the Anglo-Zulu War, on sale for $3.99.)

Okay. I could go on and on, but why don’t you rather tell me if you’ve read any of the books in the list above and if you enjoyed them. Or if you have any other recommendations to make for the list. Or even better, if you decided to download one or more of the books on the list above, and why.
I’ll give one commenter a copy of Daughter of the Sky – either print or ebook version – to be drawn next Wednesday.
