Contest Info

Today the new SPOTLIGHT IN SIX is up at the Harlequin Romance Author blog. Melissa James is the featured author and in keeping with Centenary celebrations, she's generously offered a signed copy of MOTHER IN A MILLION as a prize. Pop on over and enter.

In addition to the paperback of THE SOLDIER'S HOMECOMING that I'm giving away, and the calendar magnet (which, incidentally, I am really happy with), I'm sending this month's winner a postcard with a 1914 Mills and Boon cover on it.


I got this information from the National Gallery site.
Arthur Applin: Novelist and playwright. At the age of 22 Applin went to train with the Ben Greet Shakespeare Company. He appeared in plays including in Black Tulip and Sweet Nell of Drury and as well as producing plays including Gerhart Hauptmann's Hannele. Applin's novels and plays such as Rags (1913), London Love (1926) and murder-mystery The Death Mask (1931) were hugely popular but were often criticised by the intellectual elite. A Life of Admiral Jellicoe (1914) won praise and his Philandering Angler (1948) is described as 'one of the few angling books that women might find essential reading.'
