  • Wow, I didn’t know Merritt Tierce was a PANK contributor when I read the winners on Monday. She stands out in my memory. I think I wanted to read her book the most. Congrats to all though. That is one amazing award.

    After reading the insanely kickass Winter by Heart, I am definitely pre-ordering a copy of Sinners of Sanction County.

  • Thank you, Roxane!
