On the road again



I'm picking up mystery writer Diane Mott Davidson at the airport today and driving her to The Little Apple--Manhattan, Kansas--where she will be the Guest of Honor at the 4th Annual Great Manhattan Mystery Conclave. I wish I were seeing you guys there! I'll be back in time to post on Monday.


I hope you have a delightful weekend around the blog village and beyond. Don't forget to read a good book--like Cybermancy by Kelly McCullough.

Before I leave. . .I just got word that "Virgin" has won the Macavity Award for Best Novel from Mystery Readers International! It was awarded last night at the Big Daddy mystery convention, Bouchercon, which is going on in Anchorage, Alaska this weekend. I wish I could have been there to say thank you! Virgin is also a finalist for the Anthony Award that will be announced tomorrow night.

I apologize for the boasting, but I'm so happy about this. It's so nice to be recognized by actual readers!

Happy weekend y'all.

OK it's early Sunday morning, and I'm feeling nervous and shaky. I look around the house for what can be making me feel this way and find nothing. I finally realize.....I need a Nancy fix. Will I be able to hold out until she gets back Monday. I don't know. :D

Hope you're enjoying yourself, and having a fun weekend Nancy.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend - definitely going through Nancy Withdrawal!! :-)

I found a blog that says Nancy WON!!

"Besides the Barry Awards, there were other Awards given out at Bouchercon in Alaska. The Macavity Awards were given, as chosen by the members of Mystery Readers International.

They are:

Best Mystery Novel - The Virgin of Small Plains by Nancy Pickard"...

Congratulations, Nancy!!
