First of all, I shall be giving away a copy of "The Deadly Sisterhood" by Leonie Frieda - I've recently started reading this brilliant tale of women in the Renaissance and I have to say, it's absolutely brilliant! Frieda concentrates on a handful of women who lived during the Renaissance, all of whom had power and influence - Lucrezia Tournabuoni, The D'Este sisters, Lucrezia Borgia and Caterina Sforza. A fantastic read for anyone interested in the women of Renaissance Italy.
As well as this, I shall also be giving away a beautiful silver plated pendant featuring Lucrezia Borgia and a portion of a love letter written to her from Pietro Bembo. I found this beautiful pendant whilst browsing Etsy, and the person who made this lovely pendant has also made a huge selection of other ones too. Please do check out the shop. Now, I have just ordered this pendant but as it's coming from the United States it may take a while - but as soon as I receive it I shall pop it right back in the post for the lucky winner.
So what do you have to do to be in with a chance of winning?
All you have to do is like the facebook page here! And once we've rolled over the magic 100,000 pageviews mark, I shall use a random number generator to pick the winner! Good luck!
There's also another very special announcement coming, I hope, very soon. Watch this space for details! I'm absolutely bursting to tell you all what it is but I've been sworn to secrecy!
