I'm Nominated for a Thriller Award!

I was completely taken by surprise yesterday when I was informed that my short story, "The Point Guard" from KILLER YEAR: A Criminal Anthology, was nominated for a 2009 Thriller award. I was also happy to see that the legendary Ken Bruen is nominated in the same category for the story he graciously contributed to KILLER YEAR. ThrillerFest was the first crime convention I attended as an author, back in July 2006 in the sweltering Arizona heat, and it'll be very cool to attend this summer as a nominee. My sincerest thanks go to the ITW judging committee, the rest of my Killer Year comrades, and to the good folks at St. Martin's Press for publishing this bad boy.

Congratulations to all the nominees. And since I harbor no delusions of actually winning the award, I can honestly say it's an honor to be nominated.
