I have had my head so buried in my new novel that I only recently discovered that The Secret Confessions of Anne Shakespeare has been named to two “Best of 2010” book blog lists.
Historical-fiction.com selected it as the “Absolute Favorite of 2010” and wrote: “This is a book to savor!…a very mature, well-written story and absolutely plausible…I copied quote after quote from this book, and rarely do I read a book and feel the inclination to do so…a very noteworthy read! http://historical-fiction.com/?p=2791
Bippity Boppity Book.blogspot.com listed it as one of its top ten historical fiction reads of 2010 and wrote: “Anne goes on to tell her story in a voice that is believable and so alive. I really loved this character and I love when an author can take a character that was a mere footnote in history and craft such a wonderful story about them.” http://bippityboppitybook.blogspot.com/search?updated-min=2010-01-01T00%3A00%3A00-08%3A00&updated-max=2011-01-01T00%3A00%3A00-08%3A00&max-results=50
My thanks to all the book bloggers who have read and reviewed the novel. Anne would be immensely pleased.
