This Week's Winner and AN ANNOUNCEMENT!

Greetings and happy Friday! This week's winner of Susan Craft's The Chamomile is Cindi! Congrats. Thanks for all the comments this week and for letting us all know beauty comes from within. :)

Now to the announcement! We hope you are enjoying the Monday posts. We don't get too many comments, but the stats tell us many of you are reading the posts. Beginning this coming Monday we will move to a regular schedule so you all will know what's coming up. And, we're adding a new contributor! (More on that below.) So here is the schedule. Please tell us what you think and if there is an aspect of historical fiction (or history in general) you'd like us to explore.

1st Monday: Leigh Delozier brings us new releases. This has been a popular post in the past since we all like to find out what our next great read will be.

2nd Monday: Amber Stockton: Research Resources. Chances are if you're reading this, you love history, and if you love history, you probably enjoy research. Amber brings us some new and really fun resources to explore.

3rd Monday: A huge welcome to our newest contributor, Carla Gade Olson. Carla's column will be called: Digging Deeper with a focus on 17-19th c American and English History and she's already got some great posts lined up for you.

4th Monday: Cindy Thomson: New Voices: Guest posts. Occasionally I will post, but most months I'll bring you some new voices. Some are pre-published, others seasoned novelists, but these folks aren't a regular part of our team here on PASTimes, you'll get to read some new voices. The posts will be fairly short and focused on some aspect of history. A biography of the author will be included so you can follow him/her if you wish. (And I didn't get the memo about wearing a cool necklace in your author photo. Not that I'm jealous of all that jewelry or anything. :) )

In the months that we have a 5th Monday, Leigh will share with us Miscellaneous Monday (which will be a mish-mash of whatever she's thinking history-wise.) I've enjoyed her columns in the past, and I'm sure you have too!

There you have it. What do you think?
