Some deadlines are coming up, so I just wanted to post a few reminders for today.

First, the deadline to nominate your favorite heroes and villains is March 4th. So be sure your favorites aren't overlooked or out voted in the nomination process. Also those villains need some help. Quite a few people have opted to nominate their favorite hero but not a villain, but you know a great crime novel is nothing without a great villain, so think hard and offer up some antagonists who really gave you chills or nightmares or heart palpitations! There are still some significant villains missing from the list.

Have you submitted your guesses for which authors belong to their mugs? You have until the March 5th to submit your guesses on that one. Some fun prizes to win there and the contest is open to everyone. Authors' other mugs will be revealed soon!!

And finally for here on Jen's Book Thoughts, you have until March 8th to throw your hat in the ring for a copy of THE TECHNOLOGISTS by Matthew Pearl.

Elsewhere, today's the last day you can get SOUTHERN SEAHAWK by Randall Peffer for free on Nook or Kindle as part of Tyrus' first in the series promotion. Next week they'll be A PRAYER FOR DAWN by Nathan Singer and the week after that is HOSE MONKEY by Reed Farrel Coleman. So grab your free ebooks while you can.

Soho Press has been running a "Black is Back" promotion on Facebook for Cara Black's MURDER AT THE LANTERNE ROUGE release. There's still a little time left to participate in that if you haven't been already.

And Brad Parks has a Carter Ross short story called "The Nightgown" up at the Criminal Element website. Don't let the title scare you. I know "Nightgown" and Brad Parks in the same sentence might be a bit terrifying, but don't worry. It's safe!

If you haven't picked up a copy of the most recent Crimespree Magazine, I encourage you to do so. I had a most wonderful time with Ruth Jordan interviewing Hilary Davidson for the cover story. I think you'll enjoy it, too.

Hope you're finding great things to read. Spring books have all been rolling in and some summer books have begun to arrive to. Looks like another great year for crime fiction. What are YOU most looking forward to this spring or summer?
