  • add the link(s) of your review(s) including your name and book title to the Mister Linky we’ll be adding to our monthly post (please, do not add your blog link, but the correct address that will guide us directly to your review) 
  • any kind of historical fiction is accepted (HF fantasy, HF young adult,...)"
