I have recently heard that Richard Sharpe’s e-book version of The Duke Don’t Dance won the Independent Publishers (IPPY) Gold Medal for best adult fiction e-book. Congratulations, Richard! See my review http://thequeensquillreview.com/2012/05/22/review-the-duke-dont-dance-by-richard-sharp for the reasons why I highly recommend this novel. I’m gratified to know that the IPPY committee and I are in agreement about the quality of this book!
I will be posting a review in the next few weeks of Mr. Sharpe’s Time is the Oven, following the odyssey of a young man in the wake of the Civil War, inspired by Shakespeare’s The Winter Tale. This is to be my ipad train-ride read to BEA : ) I will also be reviewing Godiva (a book about chocolate??? Yippee…oh, not that Godiva…) by Nicole Galland (William Morrow Paperbacks), set in Angelo-Saxon England, for the August issue of the Historical Novels Review, which I shall post here as well.
BEA is coming up fast. If anyone is attending and would like to meet in person, just send me an e-mail. I’d love to meet other readers, writers, and bloggers!
