The Whispering Bellby Brian Sellars is free in the UK today. C7th Anglo-Saxon England, I think Carla posted a review on it a while ago.

The Ghost of Bluebell Cottage by Claire Voet and The Daughters of the House by Nicola Thorne look like interesting freebies too.

Thank you. Free on my side of the pond too. Amazon tells me I'd already purchased the Thorne book :o

Not a 'deal', but Stella Riley's Garland of Straw is now on Kindle.

I just checked and some of those titles (mostly the Darcy ones) are on sale in the UK here too. (ETA: The exact same titles are showing up for me now actually. Yay!)

Nice, the Historical Fiction category on Amazon.com has lots of subcategories, ours doesn't :(

How many Pemberley pastiches do we need, for goodness sake? :) Having said that, I did really enjoy Jo Baker's Longbourn, which is a cut above the usual.

Pleased to see Gillian Bradshaw's Down the Long Wind trilogy on special, though, and even better, I was actually able to nab them for the discounted price! I've been meaning to read this series for ages and somehow never got round to it.

Haha, maybe this will help - this is the Sourcebooks sale with any title including "Darcy" removed. The results jumped down from 122 to 93 so there's nearly 30 books with the name "Darcy" in the title!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Bookbub tells me that Lady of the English is $1.99 today. I already have it, but others might want to know.
