Uh. Excuse me. Where is Tom Morrisey's On HIGHER GROUND? they missed some!

Rel said...

I agree! When do they close to nominations? Maybe he is outsde that time????

Jenny said...

Do you mean "In High Places"?

I believe the nominations come from publisher submissions for the prior year (so it would be books published in 2006 for this year's award), so I would say stay tuned until next May when 2007 book nominations come out. ;)

Any favorites on the list, ladies? I've only read 4 from the list, but I do enjoy Lisa Samson and Beverly Lewis' books.

I've read Grace in Thine Eyes, Pieces of Silver, The Measure of a Lady, The Redemption, Cubicle, and Josey. They are all good especially the last four.

Hehehe - Cee Cee - Tom would be impressed his title made such an impact!
