Has it been almost a whole year? I remember, so vividly it almost brings tears to my eyes, the moment this photo was taken. And before that, the moment my name (and Prime Time) was called as winner of the Agatha for Best First. I can tell you my life has not been the same sine. And there’s not a moment I’m not grateful.
So, as my Agatha year ticks away, here’s a photo of me and Best Novel winner Louise Penny. There were not two happier people on the planet at that moment.
Now you’re asking: why why why are you posting a photo of yourself? Well, I say, it’s to give you all license to talk about your own Agatha stuff.
Are you a nominee? And want to shout it to everyone? Please, go ahead.
Tell us about your book. Or about yourself. A short paragraph? Your elevator pitch? How you felt when you got the call? This is your day.
Of course we’re thrilled and delighted about the nominations for our own Rosemary Harris for Pushing Up Daisies,
and Rhys Bowen for A Royal Pain, but more about that another day.
Today, we say, go for it.
