My First Giveaway! Hooray!

Okay, technically this is my second giveaway. I gave away a $10 Amazon gift card during Banned Books Week. But this is the first giveaway I'm hosting all by my lonesome, from my blog, for my own purposes. *Squee* I've been blogging for roughly six months, now, and I've never done one. Why? I'll tell you...I don't know...Just never had. Well, I'm going to remedy that now.

Last week I was plugging along, just minding my own business and posting my blogs, and then I saw it! My post number read: 100! Oh my gosh I've just hit one hundred posts! This also coincides with my blog's six month anniversary! (It was on 10/19, but close enough. :D)

Unlike my other blog, I don't quite have 300 followers on this one. But, between GFC, Linky, Networked Blogs, and email, I'm really close--about 275, I think. So, we'll call this my Just Under 300 Followers Giveaway. Yea! :D

My first historical fiction novel is still ten months from release, but my first fantasy novel will be out much sooner. For details, see my other blog, Musings on Fantasia. I'm doing an ARC giveaway there.

In celebration, I'm hosting giveaways on both my blogs! Click here to see my other giveaway. Since I focus a lot of attention for this blog on historical fiction, I'm going to be giving away two books by one of my favorite historical fiction authors: Michelle Moran. I'll be giving away a copy of Nefertiti and The Heretic Queen. Both are awesome books and amazing examples of compelling historical fiction.

Enter the Rafflecopter below and don't forget to check out the giveaway on my other blog! Good luck! :D
