This is the third 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)

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

 

I have a few ready for this one; just hope that it'll be safer to travel in May than it is now!

Other word suggestions:

Japanese nobility of various types: you already have "samurai", but there's shogun, daimyo, hime, and more. [Not sure how many of those I'd have books for, but I do have one or two!]

Caesar became a title in ancient Rome

"regalia" refers to various royal items; it'd include things like scepters and crowns, but extends farther. [Now I need to find a book with "regalia" in the title. Maybe I should stop playing with the word-list!]

 

such as aliʻi (with or without the glottal stop), ariki, and other related terms if we’re being global about things. :)

 

I have a few books ready.

I also have a quick word question - sheikh?

 

at the moment I'm not releasing as I'm in two high-risk groups. I have no idea when that will change, but my guess is it will be quite a while.

Aww. There's always next year if controlled releases don't work for you as well

 

Added a bunch of words. If it's royalty in some fashion then it's probably be ok (just give me a heads up though)

 

 

Sorry this challenge totally slipped my mind during the past few days-but yes post books here
