Passages to the Past Holiday Blog Hop!


*** Guys, I am an idiot. I mistakenly made the Rafflecopter raffle end at 12:01 on 12/17 instead of 11:59 and I cannot change it because Rafflecopter now charges to change times on raffles. This is totally a my bad! If you would like to still enter my giveaway today until 11:59 EST, please leave a comment below with a way to contact you. Remember, you must be a follower and a US resident to win. If you have been tweeting each day, you can still tweet and it will count but make sure you leave the link to your tweet in a comment.***

The lovely Amy over at Passages to the Past has set up this fabulous blog hop, which is perfect for my fellow historical fiction lovers! And let me just say, the grand prizes for this hop look absolutely amazing (which includes 65 HF titles! Seriously!) I know that I will be checking out a lot of the other giveaways on the hop.

  1. This is more of a memoir than historical fiction, but Shigeru Mizuki put out a great graphic novel called Nonnonba about folklore and growing up in 1930s Japan. He makes all the monsters and spirits real, so I guess that counts as fiction.
