How To Make An Author's Day! (week, month...)

My heart is full, my mind is blown. 

Multi-award winning and Pulitzer Prize nominee Mary Doria Russell, author of the novel Doc, an historical bio-fiction of Doc Holliday, posted this on her website:

A Bride's Portrait of Dodge City, Kansas by Erica Vestch (2011)
Those looking for a the softer side of life in Dodge City may want to check out this novel.  Combining romance and mystery, Vetsch tells the story of Adeline Reid, a photographer who has come to Dodge City to start a new life.  A life that is threatened when an old acquaintance shows up in town.  If you are looking for Doc Holliday in this story, you won't find him, and Bat Masterson is a mere name on a page.  What you will find, however, is an deeper look at the more genteel side of Dodge City.  Readers should expect a compelling mystery, an engaging romance, and a touch of that action for which the Wild West is best known.
