FINDING MY PLACE: ONE GIRL’S STRENGTH AT VICKSBURG is a middle-grade (for readers 9 to 12) historical fiction novel set during the Siege of Vicksburg in Mississippi in 1863. To read a synopsis and reviews, please go to the Amazon page here. BUT DON’T BUY IT THERE! Until the end of the year, I am running a special on the book. For $9.50 (includes tax & s/h), you get an autographed book sent to anyone in the U.S. or Canada, a Finding My Place bookmark, and free gift wrapping. Plus the book will have the Eloquent Quill Award seal on the cover (pictured here) because Finding My Place just won the 2013 Eloquent Quill Award. If you are interested in getting this deal–the personalized book with the award seal and the bookmark gift wrapped–please fill out the PayPal form below this announcement. Please let me know the name of the person you want this personalized to AND e-mail me the address if you want me to send it directly to him/her. My email is margo (at) margodill.com
