January 16, 2009……….BIG DISAPPOINTMENT DAY….I DIDN’T GET NOMINATED FOR AN EDGAR AWARD. BOO HOO! But wait….what the heck….Ann Rule didn’t make it off the submission list either. The way I look at it, it was an honor just to be submitted. It meant two things: I was published in 2008 and my editor felt the book was good enough to submit to the Edgar Awards. But all is not lost. I’m entered in two more book competitions – the California Book Awards and the Nautilus Awards! Stayed tuned for more on those later in the year.
