Lots of great catches. You really have an eye for those tiny errors. So glad to have you looking over this draft.
You know, I have no idea why Anna’s sister didn’t take the job at the Mint. I just know historically she didn’t. Maybe Judge Kelley who got the job for Anna, wasn’t as taken with the sister? That’s one of the fun things about writing historical fiction – you get to fill in the blanks the historians can’t. I also believe it’s a way to make history more accessible and enjoyable.
My agent just moved to FUSE Literary, a much bigger agency. Hope that will help her get takers for this book. I’ve rewritten it so many times. I hope this one is the winner.
