That was quick! My request for a Civil War fiction reviewer has already been answered. Jessica James, author of the award-winning Civil War novel Shades of Gray: A Novel of the Civil War in Virginia and an avid reader of Civil War fiction, has graciously agreed to try her hand as TOCWOC’s unoffical Civil War fiction reviewer. Publishers and authors take note. If I receive a request to review fiction, Jessica will be the first person I ask. Please join me in welcoming Jessica to the TOCWOC family. Her area of expertise fills a void in TOCWOC’s stable of bloggers, just as Matt Young’s did before her. I am excited to have these two intelligent individuals with impressive credentials as new members of the TOCWOC crew.
