Claymore Award Finalists
Mark Troy is a good friend and a member of our local writers group. He wrote us late yesterday (which I found this morning) that his book, THE LAW OF THE SPLINTERED PADDLE is a Claymore Award Finalist. The award is given out at KILLER NASHVILLE in a couple of weeks. More info can be found at their website http://www.killernashville.com/
Thrilled for Mark as the book is a very good one. Of course, I could be biased as we all got to read it while Mark worked on it. In my opinion it is one heck of a book. I can't comment on the competition as I have not read any of them.
The complete list of nominees are :
"Wicked Schemes" by Carol Baier
"A Twist of Hate" by V. R. Barkowski
"Murder by Misrule" by Anna Castle
"The Bronx Kill" by Philip Cioffari
"Hallowed Darkened Space" by Marianna Heusler
"Forgotten Treasures" by Susan Lindgren
"The Last Death of Jack Harbin" by Terry Shames
"A Killer Past" by Maris Soule
"Again" by Jonathan Stone
"The Law of the Splintered Paddle" by Mark Troy
Congrats to all and fingers crossed for Mark Troy.
