Today, The Cross and the Dragon and Of Honest Fame by M.M. Bennetts are representing historical fiction at the Winter Book Blast Event blog hop.
Visit The Edible Bookshelf for more about my debut novel and M.M.’s companion story to her debut, May 1812. The blurb to Of Honest Fame opens with “Gambler, gaoler, soldier, sailor, smuggler, spyman, traitor, thief–A battle of wits against the brutal forces of Napoleon’s tyranny over Europe.” M.M. also writes excellent blog posts detailing the history and devastation of the Napoleonic Wars, something that is not discussed much in the States.
While you’re at The Edible Bookshelf scroll down to enter the giveaway for the grand prize, 18 books, and check out the other participating blogs.
Under way through Dec. 23, the Winter Book Blast features variety of genres such as action adventure, drama, romance, young adult, and fantasy. Visit my Dec. 13 post for a complete schedule, links to previous themes, and a list of authors and their titles. I will add updates to that post as the blog hop progresses.
