    Sounds great, Victoria. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. Victoria Dixon says:

    You're welcome, Rachna! I feel like I'm in a bit of a blogging rut recently. I've already programmed in next week's though and it will be a legitimate post with an honest-to-God question attached.

    Oh, yay!!! I have a YA historical fantasy — I will definitiely check this out. Thanks for sharing!!! Also I have been meaning to tell you how much I loved that book I won on your blog earlier this year: To Ride the Gods' Own Stallion, set in ancient Assyria. It was amazing!!!! I wrote a glowing review for it on Goodreads, but was disappointed to see the book had garnered very little attention… so I also voted for it on the best horse books list. I'll also blog about it here soon. Thank you thank you for this great read!

    Hey, Margo! Thanks for letting me know about the book, and good luck submitting to Tu! Please let me know if anything comes from it. I wish I had YA stuff for them that WASN'T a short story, but ah well. ;D

    I did like that book, but I enjoyed I Rode a Horse of Milk White Jade (same author) even more. If you liked the one, I bet you will the other, too.

    That's awesome you posted this. Stacey Whitman's story of how she started Tu Publishing is as awesome as a debut author getting published.

  6. Victoria Dixon says:

    Yeah I know. I've been following her for awhile now. I'm excited it's finally launching!
