Hello everyone, Paul here! Today we are joined by Julia Hughes, author of the YA book A Raucous Time. Let’s recap what’s currently going on here at Sher A. Hart blog first. Make sure to check out the 3rd Annual Dreaming of Books Giveaway Hop and be sure to check out Daynight by Megan Thomason Book Blast & Blog Tour posted earlier by Sher. Stop by The Circle of Tivedon Blog Tour as today is the last day to enter. Then there is the Sunshine Syndicate tour and huge giveaway. Our 1000 follower No Strings Attached Giveaway started last week and runs through today, with a box of books to a US winner and a $20 Amazon gift card to an international follower. And two more giveaways are open for another week, including the blog tour of Rise of the Fire Tamer by Kailin Gow, and The Freak of Nature Book Blast. All are set to open in a new window so you won’t lose your place here.
I would like to thank Kathy at I Am A Reader Not A Writer and Book Haven Extraordinaire for hosting the Back to the Future – A Giveaway Hop Across Time. Author of A Raucous Time, Julia Hughes has been kind enough to give away 2 autographed paperbacks as well as 2 ebooks. Julia has also been kind enough to offer to ship the books to Europe, the US, and Canada. Thanks Julia!.
Today Julia is guest posting for us. I have to preface her post with fact that I struggled at times with some of the “British English” in the book. The setting and dialogue, including words I had a bit of difficulty deciphering are all part of what made me enjoy A Raucous Time so much. The subsequent discussions I’ve had with Julia regarding this fact was the inspiration for her post. So without any further delay I give you author Julia Hughes guest post: Musings on British & American English.
Thanks for stopping by everyone. I hope you enjoyed Julia’s brilliant guest post as much as I did. Be sure to enter the Rafflecopter below for a chance to win a copy of A Raucous Time.
