Hi all! This is the first year of the Royalty Release Challenge! Below are some guidelines; if you have any questions please let me know.

*You may dual (or multi) challenge with other release challenges (as long as the book(s) qualifies for each ;) )

*You may pop in at any time during the challenge and release books fitting the challenge.

*Starts Midnight May 1 and ends Midnight May 31 (your local time)

*Plurals and embedded words all work; though embedded words must be in the same language that it was written in.

*Names of Royalty i.e. Prince Charles count as long as the title is included (so Charles on its own does not count). Eras based on Royalty names (Edwardian, Victorian, Elizabethan, Carolingian, etc) or Dynasties (ie Ming, Song, etc) all count.

*Wild and controlled releases count; post links in this thread (and any catches for wild books).

ETA 5/5/2018: Authors names count too! (For example Stephen KING)

Word list:
Queen
King
Prince/Princess
Courtier
Jester
Throne
Crown/Tiara/Coronet
Scepter
Duke
Duchess
Marquis
Marquessa

*If anyone thinks of any other words let me know!*

 

Sounds like fun! I’ll play.

 

Hm...not that I have any of these titles at the moment but...

Maybe highness or majesty?

How about Tsar/Czar, Tsarina, Tsarevna, Tsarevich, etc?

Coronet?

 

Those would work. Adding them

I have a few books that qualify. Of course, as luck would have it, they're on my Mt TBR and I want to read them before I release them!

A couple of suggestions:
count
countess/contessa
empire (you already have emperor/empress)

PS Also monarch?

 

empire (you already have emperor/empress)

And maybe imperial?

 

Thanks :)

now to find those books....they're probably in a different box! And the booksale today yielded a few more

 

I'm looking at a book about Samoa, but it would also apply to quite a few other cultures/societies with hereditary rulers/leaders...
