I have to say that I am very favorably impressed with this new Historical Fiction board and the people who are hanging out here. I'm super impressed that a number of you have taken the time to read and comment on the Prologue-Chapter 1 I posted in Share Your Work (this also included a PM from one of you). It makes me feel very good about the interest everyone has in helping each other out and the genre. My thanks and kudos to everyone! Puma
