The poll is now closed and we can reveal that the novel that received most votes from our blog and Twitter followers was….The Company of Fellows by Dan Holloway
Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this is that the book was not on the list of 15 to select from but was voted for time and time again on the ‘Other’ button.
With the impeccable timing of a world-class 800m runner The Company of Fellows overtook Charlotte Mendelson’s ‘Daughters of Jerusalem’ on the penultimate day of voting.
The result causes us a slight pause since the book is only available in ebook or Print on Demand, but this is a mere trifling concern – we will get copies and proudly display and sell from the front of shop.
Hearty congratulations then to Dan Holloway and his band of fantical supporters!
