This the final list for the Best Paperback Original category for the Edgar Awards. On that list, amazingly, is a book I acquired, The Day She Died. I am so proud to have landed a book that earned a place on this list. It is my first Edgars banquet. I bought a nice jacket, shirt, and tie. I mean seriously, did any of you think I would wear a dress?!
Next week, if all works out well, I will be travelling from NYC down to DC for Malice Domestic. I hope to have time to blog in between my chauffeuring duties. And perhaps I one of my passengers will be and Edgar Award winning author. Fingers crossed.
