Literary Heroine Blog Party and Giveaway - 2015


You are cordially invited. . . 

To the Fifth annual Literary Heroine Blog Party!
~ February 16-28 ~


Are you enthralled with the charming stories of heroines of yesteryear? Do you thrill at the sight of a lovely, century-old book? Have you ever read a favorite novel up in the airy retreat of a graceful tree? Do you often catch yourself thinking of the inhabitants of Orchard House or Pemberley as not only very real, but intimate friends? If so, I hope you will plan on joining me for this exciting online party.

Read all of the fabulous entries from years past!


This has become such a fun tradition for me, as every year on my birthday the LHBP is posted and scores of lovely ladies around the world link up their entries to the blog party quiz.  This year is a little different from previously as I've been slightly distracted with wedding planning and living life and wonderfulness, so we're a day late on posting.
We're also streamlining the blog party with a single giveaway hosted by my Etsy shop, Kellie Falconer Design.


Here's how it works: 

* As your hostess, I will provide a linkup at the end of this post. All you must do is answer the questions below, making them your own with your unique personality and way with words. Then sign the guestbook at the end of this post in the form of the link to your blog post!
* Via the guestbook/link pool, have fun mingling, visiting each other's blogs and getting to know one another better!



~The Giveaway~

You can certainly enter the giveaway without participating in the blog party, but I hope you'll join in both!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

The winner will be drawn at random on February the 28th.
