Well, that's one way to get the morning off to a good start -- I checked my email, only to find a message from the wonderful Gina that my historical short story, "Frances, Queen of the Ocean," has been nominated in the Preditors and Editors poll. It really has. Right here:
If you've read the story and enjoyed it, please do consider voting. I've always had a special soft spot for this story, and am thrilled to be nominated. Before my second cup of tea, too, which is the one in which my brain arrives. Makes up for the minus five degree weather.
