December Newsletter 2018

As we enter in to the festive season, we have a little celebration of our own,  our web site – has reached just under 250,000 hits.

I think that is worth raising our glasses too... cheers!

** In December we look at books set in 2000 through to 2018

January we slip back to the 1800s

February we go Regency.

If your book is set in these dates, please contact me if you want to join in. 
PLEASE NOTE there is a max of SIX places per month. 
Books will be included on a first come first serve basis.  

** Please note there are no places left for December

It is scheduled posts will be published every Tuesday and on certain Thursdays when there are more than four posts per month. However with Christmas falling on a Tuesday the post for that day will change.
