So, this happened this morning: http://www.theedgars.com/nominees.html
My debut YA Thriller, FAKE ID, was nominated for a 2015 Edgar Award for Best YA Book by Mystery Writers of America.
I have no words (even though I just wrote a bunch of them and will write some more–what can I say? I’m a man of contradictions).
To put this in context, this is the Oscars, Golden Globes, Grammy’s, for mystery writers. Now I know when people say that old line about how it’s an honor to even be nominated, they’re probably telling the truth. I know I am.
Winners are announced at a big deal, black tie banquet in April, in NYC. I will keep you posted as the time draws near.
