Fill the cabinet with whisky! Make sure your bagpipes are in good order! Burns Night, that annual celebration of Robert Burns (the poet laureate and bard of Scotland) is almost here (Wednesday, January 25th) and we have got a ton of fun in store for you.
Jeri Smith-Ready has teamed up with me and other Scot lovers for an entire day dedicated to the awesomeness that is Scotland, including:
All Things Scottish giveaway hop! Bloggers: write a post about your favorite thing about Scotland, hold a giveaway, and you could win an ARC of SHINE, the last book in the SHADE trilogy! The FWIW blog will be posting a linky soon!
Get Your Scot On contest! Share your own photos of Scotland, attempts to make (and eat!) haggis, or any Scottish related fun, and be entered to win. Fictish Delish's site will have a linky posted on Tuesday for you.
A New Post Every Two Hours! Check back here for a new Scottish-themed post every two hours throughout the day on Wednesday, January 25th. My blog will be hosting giveaways of Between, Scottish music and Aiden's Angels merchandise. Woot!
Ask a Real Scotsman! Q&A with Glasgow Native Fraser McFarlane. Pop on over to The Mountains of Instead book blog on 1/25 at 4pm EST (1pm PST) to join in the fun.
Or if fake Scotsmen are more your style...
Zachary and Aiden Twitter chat! Zachary Moore from the SHADE series and Aiden MacRae from Between will be getting chummy on Twitter beginning at 10pm EST (7pm PST) on 1/25. Be sure you're following both of the fictional guys and use the hashtag #FakeScotsmen to keep up!
We'll be using the #TKBurnsNight hashtag on Twitter to spread the word, so let your friends know about the Scottish celebration coming this Wednesday! Go #TeamKilt and #AidensAngels!!
