I’m really excited to attend Bouchercon this year in Toronto for many reasons, but now I have an even bigger reason to be excited! I especially love that this is the first year there is a Best Novella category so it’s truly an honor to be shortlisted.
Best Novella (8,000-40,000 words)
- Cleaning Up Finn – Sarah M. Chen [All Due Respect Books]
- No Happy Endings – Angel Luis Colón [Down & Out]
- Crosswise – S.W. Lauden [Down & Out]
- Beware the Shill – John Shepphird [Down & Out]
- The Last Blue Glass – B.K. Stevens, Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, April 2016 [Dell]
It’s tough competition and it’s even tougher because three of the nominees are my friends: Angel Luis Colón, S.W. Lauden, and John Shepphird. There’s going to be some epic throwdowns in Toronto, I have a feeling.
And I owe all this to my publishers over at ALL DUE RESPECT BOOKS, Chris Rhatigan and Mike Monson. Love these guys and hope I make them proud! Go ADR!
Here’s the link to the entire list of Anthony nominees:
Hope to see many of you in Toronto!
