A second round of judging has begun, and we hope to have a short list to announce by mid-April. The winner will be announced at the luncheon of the Historical Novel Society Conference in Denver, CO, USA on Saturday, June 27, 2015.

We hope our winning author will be present to accept the prize or will have a representative, but attendance is at the author’s expense. Unfortunately we cannot assume responsibility for the costs. The deadline to set up a signing table is April 1 and to register is May 31. Registration
