It's An Honor Just To Be Nominated

The Edgar nominations were posted today. No, I wasn't nominated, but two fellow members of Sisters In Crime/Los Angeles were, and that's reason to celebrate, especially when one of them is my friend Naomi Hirahara.

The two SinC/LA nominees were both in the category of best original paperpack. Naomi Hirahara was nominated for Snakeskin Shamisen and Paul Levine was nominated for The Deep Blue Alibi.

The Edgar is the Oscar of the mystery writing field. It's an annual award given each spring by Mystery Writers of America in honor of Edgar Allan Poe. Complete list of nominees.

A hearty congratulations to all the nominees!

Yes, Sue Ann. Many awards await you. BTW, you have quite a readership. Your blog was the No. 2 referrer to my website!
