Suddenly Sunday–Last of 2012

Suddenly Sunday

I know I only did a couple of these this year, but this will be the last one of 2012.  I have seen several awesome lists of favorite reads from 2012 and some most anticipated lists too.  I will have my 2012 wrap up coming on January 1st, so stay tuned for that.

I also wanted to announce some big news that I am just finally getting the chance to share.  I think I announced previously, at least on the blog Facebook page, that I am attending the 2013 Historical Novel Society conference.  However I didn’t mention that I have been asked to be a panelist!  On blogging!  I will be one of 5 panelists discussing blogging and historical fiction: Virtual Salon: The Historical Fiction Blog.  I am beyond excited!!!  When I attended the conference in 2011 I thought that everyone would benefit from a panel on blogging/social media/etc. – and now here it is and I get to speak about it.  How cool is that?!!  The other panelists are: Amy Bruno from Passages to the Past/Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours; Julianne Douglas from Writing the Renaissance; Deborah Swift from English Historical Fiction Authors and author of The Lady’s Slipper and The Gilded Lily; and Heather Webb from Between the Sheets and writer of the to-be-released-in-2014 book, Becoming Josephine.  I am looking forward to getting to know these wonderful ladies better and sharing what we know with others!

Also, we have a winner to announce!  The winner of the giveaway for an e-copy of Her Majesty’s Will by David Blixt is….MYSTICA!!  Congratulations!  I have sent out an email to the winner.  If there is no response within 5 days a new winner will be selected.

Lastly, I have some great things coming up in 2013 – at least the first 3 months are relatively planned out.  Make sure you keep an eye on the “UPCOMING” tab above to stay on top of what is in store for the Maiden’s Court.  Thanks to all of you for making 2012 an awesome year!

Suddenly Sunday is hosted by Muse in the Fog.

  1. How exciting for you, Heather! I'm hoping I can attend the conference since it is in the south this year.

    1. That would be awesome Joanne! You will have to let me know if you are able to attend. I would love to meet up with you!

  2. Have fun at the HNS thing =) I am leaning towards the ACFW conferences, they have Dallas Chapters etc and so when I go to one that's what I'll be working towards. I have loved reading and developing my Christian values this year, and I can't wait to delve more into it in 2013 and beyond! Happy New Year!

    1. Oh that's cool Marie. I had not heard of the ACFW - but I went and took a look. That would be perfect for you!!! Have a great new year!

  3. Awesome news, Heather. The conference as a whole and your panel sound exciting. I hope to be able to attend one of the conferences at some point.

    I'm looking forward to your wrap up post. I enjoy reading end of year posts.

    1. I would love the chance to meet you at one of these things sometime!
