Absolutely Truly is an Edgar Awards nominee!

January 21st, 2015

This morning I awoke to some amazing news — ABSOLUTELY TRULY has been nominated for an Edgar Award!

Absolutely Truly cover 2014
What exactly are the Edgar Awards? Kind of like the Oscars for mystery writers…

The Edgars
Only instead of golden statues, they give out little Edgar Allen Poes.

Wouldn’t he be a fun addition to the bookshelf?!

This honor is bestowed by the Mystery Writers of America, and I’m stunned and flattered and absolutely truly beside myself with excitement! I’m in such fabulous company, too (click here for a full list of nominees). Plus, my brilliant and charming editor at Simon & Schuster, Kristin Ostby, is on a roll with not one but TWO of her books nominated — mine and SPACE CASE by Stuart Gibbs. I’m thrilled for her!

Time to start looking for a party dress for the awards ceremony. It’s a black tie occasion, and we’ve been instructed to “dress to kill”…
