Three-year blogging anniversary, and a Twitter book giveaway

This month marks three years since I began the Hannah Fielding blog. How time has flown, and how this blog has grown!

In the past three years, I’ve written some 725 blog posts. Averaging, say, 500 words per post, that’s 362,500 words! I’ve so enjoyed having the opportunity to write about subjects that interest me, inspire me and tie into my books, and what a range…

I’ve written about the gods, nature, proverbs, legends, philosophy, sociology and beauty.

I’ve transported readers to the settings of my books, Kenya and Italy, and to the places I call home, Kent in England and the Cote d’Azur in France.

I’ve looked at writers and poets like LeConte De Lisle and Balzac; artists like Maurice Utrillo and Botticelli; musicians like Fausto Pappeti and Peter Borthwick; and a host of films, from Gone with the Wind to Gatbsy.

I’ve explored what it means to be a romance writer from various angles, like genre categorization, heroes and heroines, the other woman in fiction, the balance of creating and editing, censorship, finding a place to write and the freedom to be feminine.

I’ve looked at the business of being an author from a marketing and publishing perspective, and commented on trends in the industry like self-publishing and the ebook versus print book debate.I’ve surveyed and assessed top ten romantics – from places to dates, songs to movies.

I’ve offered up recipes for dishes as diverse as African groundnut soup, Christmas ice cream, Mombasa curry, bouillabaisse and Kentish pudding pie.

I’ve shared a little of myself and my roots as a romantic and a writer, such as the time I unwittingly snubbed Richard Burton.

I’ve offered reviews on other authors’ books, videos of me and of others that tell a story, links to music, poems and pictures, so many pictures…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To celebrate my blogging anniversary, I’m offering FIVE PAPERBACK COPIES of my latest novel, The Echoes of Love. To enter, all you need do is retweet the promotional tweets sent out by @BookBuzzers between 10th and 14th of September. Good luck!
