Michelle is the author of historical fiction bestsellers like Nefertiti and The Heretic Queen, and she's offering this fabulous giveaway to promote her new book.

For the contest, Michelle is giving away a copy of Cleopatra's Daughter, as well as an ancient coin complete with certificate of authenticity. That's so cool, isn't it?

    What a cool giveaway! Please throw me into the drawing!

    You are on my google reader if that counts. :)

    I don't know if this necessarily counts as historical fiction but Avalon by Anya Seton-- it takes place back in early, early England around historically noted figures but the actual main characters are made up.

    Thanks for offering this!

    +1 I have read a few historical fiction books. Just recently I finished reading "Stand The Storm" by Breena Clarke. I have also read, years ago, "Jubilee" by Martha Walker. I've read The Known World by Edward P. Jones. These books took place during the Civil War. In another period I read "Year of Wonders" by Geraldine Brooks. I've read "Falling Angels" by Tracy Chevalier. I've read "Lydia Cassett Reads the Morning Paper by Harriet Chessman. I've also read Julius Ceasar by Shakespeare. Oh, last week I finished Sea Robber: by Tim Severin about piracy in another era. One more is "The Forest Lover" by Susan Vreeland. I love any period in history. I've also enjoyed "Outlander."

    Could I enter the contest, please?

    +1 Favourite historical read... that's a tough one. Does PRIDE AND PREJUDICE count? I know it wasn't historical when Jane Austen wrote it, but it's historical now.... Otherwise, maybe THE GRAND SOPHY or COTILLION by Georgette Heyer.
