Congratulations

To the Edgar winners (and nominees). Didn't Sarah Weinman do a fabulous job?

Fridays Forgotten Books, Week Two: Here's a new group of books to consider. I thank everyone who agreed to do this.

I stood up and cheered when I read that Megan won an Edgar! QUEENPIN was one of my top reads (across the board) last year & I'm so thrilled for her. You must be one proud momma!

Clair Dickson said...

I've got a forgotten book this friday, too.

Todd Mason said...

Eye surgery? Everything cool?

Many congratulations to you and, of course, to Megan Abbott!

And here's my Friday Book, too--another Edgar winner, Avram Davidson, in this case...

Congrats to the fabulous Abbotts, especially M., tonight!

Todd-I'm having a hard time getting it to link. Am I missing something at the end. Even if I put that link on a goggle line it doesn;t go.

Bill Crider said...

Congrats!

todd mason said...

That's odd...I think that if we blame Blogger somehow, we might not be wrong. But I'll go ahead and put mine in as the hotlink on my name on this post...and Congratulations to you as well. I think many references around the house to the May Award Winners are in order!

Patricia J. Hale said...

Congratulations to YOU for your Derringer!

(take care post eye surgery)

pattinase (abbott) said...

Thanks to all of you. The eye seems infinitely better-could hardly see out of it. Just have to wait and make sure the retina doesn't detach now.
I think I got the link up now, Todd.

Josephine Damian said...

Squeeeee! You won the Derringer!

I'll do a post about right now!

Back later.

Hope the eye's ok.

Josephine Damian said...

Got my post up.

Oh, yeah. Yay Megan! I'll do a post about her too later in the day.

Clair Dickson said...

Congrats on your Derringer win, Patti! Clearly there's some awesome writerly genes in the Abbott family!

Now you can put Derringer Winner in your cover letter for those agent queries!

pattinase (abbott) said...

Josephine. Thanks. Coming upon you in blogland was a great day in my life.

Steve Allan said...

Count me in. Here is mine.

Ello said...

I have a book up too!
