"Framed for Murder" is a Finalist for the Bony Blithe Award!
Yippee! I was notified today that Framed for Murder, the first book in the Anna Nolan mystery series, is one of the five finalists for the 2014 Bony Blithe award. The award will be given out on June 7 at the Bloody Words Mystery Conference.
The Bony Blithe is given to a mystery novel with a light touch. "'Light mysteries' cover anything from laugh-out-loud books to gentle humour to good old-fashioned stories with little violence or gore." Like a "cozy" mystery with a humourous streak.
I love the symbol for the Bony Blithe, the dancing skeleton, and I would be delighted to receive a plaque with this joyous figure (not to mention the prize money of $1,000).
If you enjoy mysteries and can visit Toronto on the weekend of June 6 - 8, why not come? Readers are welcome, as well as authors, editors, and agents. Here's the link to information concerning the award and the conference: The Bony Blithe Award.
Even if you can't come, please wish me luck. And if you'd like to buy Framed for Murder, click on the "Bookstore" tab on this site for the e-book or paperback purchase links - or just ask your favourite bookstore to order it in for you.
