The Heretic Queen Giveaway!

There are precious few things that make these three book blogger happier than giving away a copy of one of our favourite books!

So you can imagine us all doing the happy dance right now when I tell you that thanks to the lovely Michelle Moran, we're delighted to be running a giveaway for 2 hardcover copies of The Heretic Queen!

1. Leave a comment on this post for one entry.

2. Become a follower of this blog for 5 additional entries. If you already follow, let me know in your comment.

3. Post about this give-away on your blog for yet another extra entry.

4. Please leave an email address or ensure you are contactable via your blog.

This giveaway IS open to international residents. The winner will be chosen at random and announced Sunday 31st May 2009 12:00pm AEST via a blog post.

The Top 3 Reasons we LOVE Michelle Moran:

3) She has a fantastic web presence and is always friendly and warm. Michelle keeps up a blog, History Buff, and has a wonderful official website where readers can learn plenty more about her books and gain access to cool extras (such as a book trailer for her upcoming release, Cleopatra's Daughter).

2) She does her research and has a keen interest in the time periods she writes about. Michelle has worked as a volunteer archaeologist and her creative motivation to write Nefertiti actually came from her travels.

And the number 1 reason we love her....

1) Her books are highly addictive, excellent fiction. We guarantee you'll love them even if you're not a historical fiction fan. This author breathes life into history.

Why you want to win this book:

As much as we all loved Nefertiti, after finishing The Heretic Queen, it became our immediate favourite. THQ has all the elements that we loved from the first novel - seduction, deception, power struggles and violence - combined with the amazing love story of Nefertari and Rameses the Great. Here's what we had to say about it in our reviews:

'Soak it up - this is entertainment at its best! Michelle Moran's second novel is an enthralling read that will have you frantically turning pages, completely absorbed in the world she has created for you.' The Fussy Princess

'Loved it, loved it, loved it. I don't normally gush about a novel but I enjoyed this even more than 'Nefertiti' & I really didn't want it to end. It was a vivid, captivating page-turner and I thoroughly enjoyed being immersed in the Ancient Egyptian world.' The Empress of Good & Evil

'I loved the character of Nefertari, and I enjoyed seeing her mature throughout the novel. At the beginning of the novel, my heart went out to this young, orphaned girl. She was facing so much adversity and could have easily given up on her dreams; however because of her love for Ramses the Great, as well as her desire to preserve her family's name, she never gave up and constantly fought for her place in history.' The Queen of Happy Endings
Good luck!
