The Edgar nominations are out, and two of our friends are in the running!
Sophie Littlefield is nominated for best first novel by an American author. Here's the list:
The Girl She Used to Be by David Cristofano (Grand Central Publishing)
Starvation Lake by Bryan Gruley (Simon & Schuster - Touchstone)
The Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf (MIRA Books)
A Bad Day for Sorry by Sophie Littlefield (Minotaur Books Thomas Dunne Books)
Black Water Rising by Attica Locke (HarperCollins)
In the Shadow of Gotham by Stefanie Pintoff (Minotaur Books)
Dana Cameron is nominated for best short story!
"Last Fair Deal Gone Down" Crossroad Blues by Ace Atkins (Busted Flush Press)
"Femme Sole" Boston Noir by Dana Cameron (Akashic Books)
"Digby, Attorney at Law" Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine by Jim
Fusilli (Dell Magazines)
"Animal Rescue" Boston Noir by Dennis Lehane (Akashic Books
"Amapola" Phoenix Noir by Luis Alberto Urrea (Akashic Books)
The last time I mentioned Dana, I was telling you she won the Macavity for a different short story, The Night Things Changed, and before that she won an Agatha too. This should be a hint to rush out and read every short story she's written.
Good luck to both of you in the Edgars!
