Normally for this particular Sunday Salon (being the first one in April) I would bring you my reading stats for the month of March, but I have far too many other things to talk about so that will have to wait until next week.
First up, some Historical Tapestry news.
On Monday, Australian author Kate Forsyth will be guest blogging as part of the blog tour to celebrate her new book, Bitter Greens. The book is a retelling of the Rapunzel fairy tale set in 17th century France and Venice! And there will be an international giveaway as well!
From April 9 to 16, we are going to be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic with Titanic week.
There are going to be guest posts, book reviews, giveaways and more, as well as some brief facts of what was going on in relation to the Titanic 100 years ago each day. These have actually already started!
Later in the year we will also be having another exciting event. A few years ago we had Jean Plaidy Season and then Anya Seton Season. This year, we are pleased to be hosting Daphne du Maurier Season.
Again, there will be guest posts and book reviews and more.
You can also be involved. Do you love Daphne du Maurier? Or maybe adore a specific book that she has written? Are you an author who has been influenced by the work of Daphne du Maurier? If so, we would love to have you guest posting for us as part of the season. Either leave a comment on this post and we will contact you or send an email to us at Historical Tapestry.
Today is also the start of Aussie Author Month which is an initiative that was started last year by a group of bloggers and booksellers who wanted to have a month long celebration of all things bookish and Aussie! It also ties in nicely with the Australian Women Writers Challenge!
There is now a number of ways you can participate - there is a dedicated Aussie Author Month blog, you can follow on Facebook, or if Twitter is your game you can follow the #ausbooks.
On the blog there are some posting prompts if you are interested, and also details of how to donate to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
*Important Note* - all fundraising is being done through Go Fundraise and no money should be collected by individual participants. The Aussie Author month fundraising page can be found here.
I am working on a feature for later this month and will be linking up some of my reviews as well! If you are interested in signing up whether it be for just a couple of posts or for lots of posts then click on this link! We hope you will join us!
Here is a link that will show you the posts that I linked up to Aussie Author Month last year!
