A True Honor

Yesterday, due to a bit of a technical glitch, the nominees for Spinetingler's David Thompson Community Leader Award were announced early. I was astounded to find my own blog's name on that list.

Those of you who read here regularly know that we lost David Thompson unexpectedly last year. I was proud to call David a friend and admired what he accomplished in the crime fiction community. To be nominated for an award that is a tribute to David is humbling. But in addition, there are so many wonderful people contributing to this community. To be considered one of them is an honor I do not take lightly. I will definitely add it to my mini collection of accolades there on the right.

My heart is smiling and I can't thank the folks at Spinetingler who are on the nominating committee enough. I am so grateful. Thank you.

Today, Spinetingler will be announcing the other nominations throughout the day. Be sure to check the site often and help the nominees celebrate their recognition. If you are interested in voting for these awards, voting will begin Friday, April 1st.

Any award named after David must be humbling to the nominees. He cast a longer shadow than he ever could have realized.

And I should have added, congratulations, Jen!
