Although we couldn’t gather in person to hear the wonderful news, the awesome Bouchercon team managed a really fun virtual awards ceremony last night (thanks to the tireless tech wizardry of Erin Mitchell – see for yourself here). That meant seeing superstars like Hank Phillippi Ryan name the nominees and Lisa Unger announce the winner – and then share the moment with editor Heather Graham Pozzerese and NWP visionary Kelli Stanley, who not only named all of us contributors (thank you, Kelli!) but also spoke about the human rights mission of the nonprofit Nasty Woman Press (all proceeds from Shattering Glass go to Planned Parenthood; the next will go to the ACLU).
My story, “No Body,” was just one in this jam-packed anthology (Valerie Plame! Toni Kelner! Catriona McPherson!), but I’m as proud as can be. Thank you, Anthony voters! Thank you, Kelli for your dedication and tireless work! Thank you!
