I am delighted to announce that For King and Country has been named a finalist in the Chaucer Awards for Pre-1750 Historical Fiction.
Chanticleer Book Reviews runs the annual competition as a way to recognize “emerging new talent and outstanding works.” My novel has made it through Round 1. Finalists compete through 2 more rounds for a coveted “First In Category” in their sub-genres, mine being Dark Ages/Medieval. After Round 3, the First in Category for each sub-genre is announced. Fingers crossed!
Helena Schrader, whom I interviewed in August and who interviewed me earlier this month is also a finalist. And I recognize 2 other names – Prue Batten and Jean Gill – both writing medieval. Competition will be tough.
