I was in NY last night for the Edgars - my first time at that ceremony. Great fun to see so many male writers dressed as penguins, and so many female writers looking so smashing. Laura Lippman, to name one, was a knockout. Likewise Sara Paretsky, this year's Grand Master, who gave a first-rate speech that made me extremely proud to be a female in this business.
The list of Edgar winners is at http://www.theedgars.com/nominees.html. Congratulations to them all, winners and nominees.
Up at 5 a.m. to see the Royal Wedding (research)! My guess at the dress wasn't too far off except for the veil (see sketch below).
Soon on my way to attend the Malice Domestic awards dinner tonight. Here is the list of nominees: http://www.malicedomestic.org/agathaawards.html. Looking at this list I realize how many of these authors deserve to win an Agatha - it seems an especially tight race this year.
But after tonight, all this Cinderella glamor stops and it's time to put on the jeans and go back to work on the second Max Tudor novel.
.Agatha Award-winning author of the DCI St. Just mysteries, Max Tudor mysteries, standalone suspense novel WEYCOMBE, Augusta Hawke mysteries, and dozens of short stories. Books offered in all formats, including large print, e-Book, and audio.
