Of course, it’s appropriate to always celebrate all the amazing women in history, or who are making history, no matter what the time period. However, with March being Women’s History Month, it gives us an opportunity to be committed to telling their stories and bringing their lives to the page, the Internet, our blogs, and our articles. More important, it reminds us what amazing courage, strength, innovations, and feats women have performed and how very important they are to our universe!
For Women’s History Month 2014, Hook of a Book has compiled articles by several authors in the historical fiction, fantasy, thriller, and inspirational categories. I look forward to posting via the schedule below, March 19-31, with at least one post a day. You’ll find those each day over on the main blog page at Oh, for the Hook of a Book, but also as each is posted the link will be put below under the name/topic as well.
If you are so inclined, take the blog button below and put it on your own blog or website side bar and link to this page until the end of the month. That way, as each reader clicks, they can see the latest post and also the previous ones as well. Be sure to leave comment too, if you will, for the authors and support these fabulous women, and men, in their own writing. Look forward to you helping me to make this a success! And if you’d like to join for 2015, or have other comments, let me know at any time at hookofabook(at)hotmail(dot)com.
And thank you to all the authors/writers who contributed to the project!
