Curse of the Spellmans has been nominated for an Edgar Award for Best Novel. Shocked? Believe me, you are not alone.
Here's the complete list of nominees:
- Missing by Karin Alvtegen (Felony & Mayhem Press)
- Blue Heaven by C.J. Box (St. Martin's Minotaur)
- Sins of the Assassin by Robert Ferrigno (Simon & Schuster – Scribner)
- The Price of Blood by Declan Hughes (HarperCollins – William Morrow)
- The Night Following by Morag Joss (Random House – Delacorte Press)
- Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz (Simon & Schuster)
My flabbergasted thanks go out to the Mystery Writers of America and all my readers. If anyone knows where I should send the “gift baskets”, please pass that information along.
(P.S. If you’re new to me and my books, I still say you should read them in order, which means starting with the non-Edgar-nominated, inferior Spellman Files.)
