Imagine my surprise when I saw a tweet congratulating me on my nomination!
It *was* April Foolâ€™s Eve.Â Was it a cruel prank or honest mistake?
But it turned out to be true. True! My short story â€œShow Stopperâ€ (about killer Soviet fashion) which appeared in Mystery Writers of America Presents Ice Cold: Tales of Intrigue from the Cold War was nominated by International Thriller Writers for best short story:Â http://thrillerwriters.org/programs/2015-thriller-awards/
Let me repeatâ€”a nomination!!!Â Unreal! And by a favorite writing organization–International Thriller Writers.
Iâ€™ve been pinching myself ever since. And I canâ€™t wait to celebrate with fellow nominees at the gala awards ceremony at Thrillerfest in July in New York.
