The voting round that includes Yours To Keep versus Trail of the Tudor Blue by Gwen Roman is live at until 1pm eastern. I’d love a vote for Sean and Emma!

Earlier in the week, I popped over to Amazon to scope out my competition and ended up buying the book because it sounds awesome and I can be pretty confident it’s a good read since Jayne gave it an A- review at Dear Author and put it on … Read More »
