  1. Here's a link to my final tally for the Children's Historical Fiction challenge. Are you hosting again next year? I did better than I thought I would, but still not great.

Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
