I am very proud to announce that Roachkiller and Other Stories has been nominated for a 2013 Spinetingler Award in the category of Best Anthology/Short Story Collection. Now I need my fans—both of you—to vote for me to win. Click the big VOTE HERE on this page. On the first page, scroll all the way down and you’ll see where to start. Roachkiller is on the fourth category page. As you’ll see, I’m up against some pretty tough competition, including Beat to a Pulp 2: Round 2; Crime Factory: Hard Labour; Lonely No More by Seymour Shubin; Red Heads Die Quickly by Gil Brewer; Short Stack; Sleepwalking by Ray Nayler; Shotgun Honey Presents: Both Barrels (vol 1); Shoebox Train Wreck by John Mantooth; and Ugly Behavior by Steve Rasnic Tem. It’s intimidating and wonderful to be in such talented company. At the same time, it means I need your help! Run by Spinetingler Magazine, the Spinetingler is one of the most prestigious web-based awards for mystery fiction. They are open about the fact that one of the goals of the awards is to increase exposure for some books and authors, and that this can be a factor in nomination. Vote! Vote now!
