One of these things just doesn't belong.

I've just been given the news that my book was named a finalist for Best First Novel by the International Thriller Writers.

Given the other books on the list, I'm not rushing to compose my acceptance speech, and I'm still convinced this is all a cruel joke by Banks and Rickards.

MacBride's is the only cover that has a lot of red in it, so I'd say it's the odd one out.

Congratulations!

Steve Miller said...

Congratulations, David. The other nominees are in good company.

Jeff Shelby said...

Stephen Blackmoore said...

Congratulations. So, do they decide these things with a cage match? Because you could so kick MacBride's ass.

See I told you more than 12 people had read your book. Now I'll have to find out how much an autographed copy sells for on e-bay.

Wow! That's tremendous! I knew you were going to be famous some day, I just thought it would be for the scurvy medicine. Really congratulations, nobody deserves it more.

Congratulations! Do you plan to attend the awards? They are being held in Phoenix… in July. I guess the resorts in HELL were all booked up.

Tempe, Arizona is my hometown, so I get to make fun of the place.

Bring sunscreen.

David, a big WAHOO and hearty congrats on the nod, man! Which designer do you plan on wearing to the awards banquet?

Tis not a cruel joke, Mr Terrenoire. Tis deserving. Besides, you know you actually have to Greco-Roman wrestle all the other nominees, don't you? Grease is optional. I suggest you take that option. Don't give 'em any friction.
