Wow — what a lovely response, Amy! I’m bowled over by your outpouring of kind words.
While I’ve heard the name of Harry Turtledove, I’ve never actually read any of his work. Any book in particular you’d recommend I start with? I’ve not heard of Jack Womack before. I’ll add “Ambient” to my to-read list.
In case you didn’t catch this, my historical novel The Cradle and the Sword is currently gearing up to start crowdfunding. I’d love it if you’d follow the project on Inkshares: https://www.inkshares.com/books/the-cradle-and-the-sword
Thanks for reading, Amy — and for catching my “Ur” pun!
