That After Mrs. Ashton should be After Mrs. Hamilton (Romantic Suspense/Intrigue). The original poster got it wrong.

Isn't the main character a lesbian, though? I've not read the book, but the blurbs etc talk about Emily and her girlfriend.

For the first time, there was a tie for the Ann Bannon Award at the GCLS con. It was won by Sandra Moran's Letters Never Sent and Lynn Ames' All That Lies Within. I edited the latter.

Thanks, Wildlx . . . and congrats, Sacchi! I didn't even know about the one I edited until today when Lynn called to tell me.

I couldn't find the results on the GCLS site. Did anyone else we know get recognition?

It's on the site but hidden on the right column as a thread of tweets :roll:.
