What's a Jo Graham book?

I was doing a grant application recently and one of the questions stumped me. "What makes it a _____ book? How would a reader know your work out of all the books in the library?" So I put that question to you: What is a Jo Graham book? What makes it different? How would you guess a book was mine?

Well, your books make me really care about the characters and their struggles while also painting a very fascinating big picture spanning millenia.

They make me notice when I see something like this ( a program where people can bring their family heirlooms and have them evaluated)


that has a tobacco container that according to the familiy legend once belonged to Marshal Ney and I think when is Jo going to continue thestory I want to read how that came to be especially since the family legend says that he did not really want to part with it but had to. He gave it to some Marquis ( sorry I just cannot write French names from hearing) who gave it to a veterinarian who saved his life after he injured his leg.

This is how real your books are to me.

Oh that is fascinating! And you know, it might go in the story! Various bits that people found me have. In the next book there's a bit that comes from bwinter, who found it for me in the archives of a small town in Poland....
