I'm a big fan of Ben and Alison at Bleak House Books. I've sold them a couple books and we've kicked each other around on cover art recently but they are two of my very favorite people to work with.
Here's their "prom picture" from the Edgars. Alison's dress was awe inspiring; I wasn't the only one gogling at her.
The sweetest moment I've seen in years came when the nominees for Best First Book were read. I was seated at Ben and Alison's table. As the names were read, Ben reached over to Alison and took her hand in his. They sat there coolly and calmly, but that one sweet, simple gesture told me how much this meant to them.
It's great to work with people who care so much about books, and for the people they work with. I love this job, I do.
