Bringing Home the Gold

Hi all. I know I’ve been neglecting this blog. I’ve been trying to get into the new novel, and that’s taken most of my creative energy lately.

However, I just had to tell you all about a new honor for The Ambitious Madame Bonaparte. The book took the gold medal in the Reader’s Favorite Book Award Contest in the category of Fiction—Historical Personage! I’m really excited. I’ll be going to Miami in November to receive my medal. Woo hoo!

    • Thanks, Jen. Yes I think it’s going well. The research is basically done, and I’ve written 7 chapters–of a projected 28, but you know how that it is. It’s a fluid goal.
