Scandalous Women celebrates its second anniversary this month, and to celebrate I'm giving away everything but the farm! (I don't really have a farm but you know what I mean!). Once a week, I will be giving away something fabulous like:

1) Richard Armitage
2) Great historical fiction. Once that makes me laugh, cry and sigh all the way through.

4) Writing. Accept when I can't sleep at night because my characters are already jumping to the next scene, lol.
5) London
6) Blogging about Scandalous Women

Two Nerdy History Girls
Kwana Writes
The Duchess of Devonshire's Gossip Guide to the 18th Century

Congrats on your anniversary. I've been lurking for quite a while and love the diversity of your subjects - not just the usual suspects, but a full range of "Scandalous" women throughout history.

Oh - Happy Anniversary! I love this blog - well written posts about uppity women is always a hit with me.
