Another big grin

A couple of folks have written very nice reviews of "The Further Adventures of Ociee Nash." I just gotta brag a tad:

Midwest Book Review has made Ociee a Reviewer's Choice and gave it the following review.
"The Further Adventures of Ociee Nash" is Book Three of a wonderful series about an eleven-year-old girl's life in Tennessee and Mississippi circa 1900, based on the real life biography of the author's grandmother, Ociee Nash Whitman. Plunging right in with a near death daredevil leap off of a moving train, "The Further Adventures of Ociee Nash" is mesmerizing to readers young and old from start to finish. Aimed at readers age 7-12, the Ociee Nash is a delightful invitation to experience real history from a child's point of view.
Also from Midwest:
The 11/09 issue of their online book review magazine "Children's Bookwatch" features Ociee. The review has been provided to the "Cooperative Children's Book Center' (University of Wisconsin, Madison) where it will be made available to school and community librarians throughout Wisconsin's public school systems and community libraries. The review has also been provided to the Cengage Learning, Gale
interactive CD-ROM series "Book Review Index"

The real credit here goes to Deb Smith of Belle Books for working herself into a frenzy getting our book into the hands of people who seem to appreciate our Ociee girl. You can see why I'm so very happy this evening.
Ociee's Grandgirl, Milam
