Sins of the Assassin was just nominated for an Edgar by the Mystery Writers of America for Best Novel, 2009. I am really happy. Even though I have to wear formal attire to the ceremony where the winner is announced. (NYC, April 30.) I believe alcohol will be served.
Best of luck and congratulations to the other nominees:
