Thank you all SO MUCH for your votes - I am grateful to each of you whether you voted for me or not.
The other nominees in this category write wonderful historical fiction/history reviews and I'm thrilled to be included in their company. Please go check them out if you haven't already.
I'll have lots more to say later on (I'm supposed to be working right now) but I wanted to get this post us asap to say thank you to all of you for this wonderful honor. You ROCK!
