In good company

I was checking the Barnes & Noble e-book listings for historical fiction today, sorted by number of sales, and was pleasantly surprised to find Sentence of Marriage at Number 34 (of 2,019) sandwiched between a Michael Crichton and Hilary Mantel's Booker Prize-winning Wolf Hall. Heady company for my little tale.

Of course there's the not-so-small matter of money: Sentence is free. So I was just as pleased to find Mud and Gold, which isn't free, at Number 168, with one of Laurie King's Mary Russell books and Rafael Sabatini's tale of derring-do, Captain Blood, either side of it. It's a good neighbourhood.


  1. I am not surprised at all! :)

  2. Thanks, Liz! Lovely of you to say so.

  3. Thanks so much for your comment on Working Girl Reviews, Shayne. Wasn't it a really perceptive one. I'm also delighted to have found your blog through that and will keep up with your news about your own splendid books. Loretta

  4. You're most welcome, Lorri. I meant it!

    Yes, Willow at WGR is a wonderfully perceptive reviewer - her review of "Sentence of Marriage" is one of my all-time favourites.
