Burns Night Kicks Off Now!
Break open the whisky! Whip out the bagpipes! Burns Night, that annual celebration of Robert Burns (the poet laureate and bard of Scotland) is upon us and we have got a ton of fun in store for you today.
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! Check out the linky on the FWIW blog to participate!
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. Link up your blog on Fictish Delish's site!
A New Post Every Two Hours! Check back here for a new Scottish-themed post every two hours throughout the day. 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 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). Be sure you're following both of the fictional guys and use the hashtag #FakeScotsmen to keep up!
Whew! I may need to take a wee nap after all this excitement. Auld Rabbie Burns never had it so good! :)
