Well, the MWA Edgars Award event in New York was fantastic, and even though Criminal didn’t take away the prize (the winner was Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher, and you should check it out), thanks to the huge outpouring of excitement and support, I still felt like a champ. Getting to dress up didn’t hurt either, and I got to meet so many terrific folks in the YA and Juvenile categories, too. (Amy Timberlake [Her book One Came Home was the winner!], Josh Berk, Kirsten Miller, Julie Berry, Tom McNeal, Erin Dionne and Caroline Lawrence.)
Just because *I* didn’t win though doesn’t mean *you* can’t! To show my thanks to everyone I’m giving away FIVE personalized copies of Criminal, three of which will also receive the criminally inspired playlist I created for the launch party. Contest closes next week, and there’s very little you have to do to enter! (And if you need extra inspiration, there’s a sneak peek of my newest novel, In Deep, which is coming out in July.)
I’m so grateful to the Mystery Writers of America, to all the judges who were forced to make such a tough decision, but mainly for all of you amazing readers.
