Happy 3rd Blogiversary at Scandalous Women


Wow, I just checked the dates and today is the 3rd Anniversary of Scandalous Women! The time has just flown by. When I first started this blog, it was just for fun, wanting to write about some of these interesting women I was reading about. I was grateful if 2 people read my posts! In the three years since I started this blog, I've written almost 300 posts, had over 300,000 hits, reviewed countless books and films and written my first book which will be published next year.  In the next few weeks I will be reviewing the re-release of Desiree by Ann Marie Selinko, the movie musical Calamity Jane, and I have posts on Hedy Lamarr and a new series that I'm calling Poor Little Rich Girl, profiling women such as Brenda Frazier and Barbara Hutton. Also guest posts and interviews.

I want to thank all my readers who have followed this blog from day one, and all my new readers.  You guys are awesome! In honor of my third anniversary, I'm giving away to one lucky winner 3 of my favorite Jean Plaidy novels including THE MURDER IN THE TOWER which is based on the story of Frances, Countess of Essex, one of the first women that I profiled here on Scandalous Women.  The other titles are A FAVORITE OF THE QUEEN about Elizabeth and Leicester, and TO HOLD THE CROWN about Philip II of Spain and his wives.  Yes, it is a plethora of Plaidy.

And don't forget that I'm also giving away a copy of Susan Holloway Scott's THE COUNTESS AND THE KING.

Here are the rules for the giveaway. Again this is only for Canadian and American readers!  The contest runs from today through Monday, September 28th.

1. Leave your name in the comments and let me know whether you are interested in the Plaidy Books or COUNTESS AND THE KING

2. If you are not a follower and become one, you get an extra entry

3.  If you tweet about the giveaway, you get an extra entry.

Good luck!

Nothing wrong with being a Plaidy Whore, Bearded Lady! I certainly was in high school! I devoured her books like they were Godiva chocolates.
