The things that made me happiest in 2012

Well, there was that fabulous announcement on 1/19/12 that Steve Ulfelder's PURGATORY CHASM had been nominated for an Edgar Award as Best First Novel.

It was a couple months of pure fun. It was wonderful to see Steve honored by Mystery Writers of America.  It was wonderful to meet the other nominees!  It was more fun than the law should allow to assemble a posse of fans and attend the banquet.

But the very best part of all is that as a nominee for Best First, there are a lot more chances to go again!  SHOTGUN LULLABY pubs May 2013 and you better believe it's AMAZING!

Here's hoping there's a Conway Sax roadtrip novel in the near future! Love Steve's stuff, and a couple of days before Christmas, I heard a customer in B&N complaining about the dearth of Steve Ulfelder books--apparently sold out--here in Utah! So he's got more fans that just me and mine out here! Go Steve! Go Conway!

Dammit, even Lori Roy (Edgar winner!) is taller than me.

"Dresses like a cowboy and eats like a Viking!" Ha! There's a reason to read it. :)

Steve, it's not how high your head is but how lofty your pursuits that make you a winner. Congrats again on the nomination!

I absolutely love the Conway Sax novels, and now that I've made my husband read them, he loves them, too. So we are both grateful that there are more to come (and soon!).

Since Shotgun Lullaby comes out in May, I will be able to stalk Steve for an autograph at Bouchercon!
