Complete Thread
This is the second year, hope there some people that can join me. If you have any questions please let me know. No prizes, this is just for fun. :)

*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).

Authors names count too! (For example Stephen KING)
