Thanks to everyone who voted for me, Through the Fire came in first with by far the most votes in the Grab A Reader Contest at Lost…In A Good Book, A Book Club for Writers and Readers of Distinctive Fiction (Lynda Coker and Annette Snyder)

Through the Fire and the books by the two other winners, Margaret Tanner, Devil’s Ridge, and Susan Macatee, Erin’s Rebel, will be highlighted for discussion at LOST IN A GOOD BOOK October 20th -30th. Readers please enter into this discussion. If you’re not already a member of this book club, consider joining.

Also, because Through the Fire was the supreme winner, the video for this novel is featured on the home page of Writers and Readers of Distinctive Fiction (WRDF). And I won a lovely complimentary banner! Come on over and take a look:
