Early Christmas present

My American publisher, St Martin’s Press, have just told me that The Red Velvet Turnshoe  is on the shortlist for Best Historical Mystery of 2009 along with three American authors.  Our own Val McDermid is on the shortlist for Best Police Procedural with Sarah Paretsky, Louise Penney and Kathy Reichs, American writers well-known on this side of the Atlantic,  and  the English contender for Best Contemporary Mystery is Reginald Hill.  Great news for us all!  Best of luck everyone!
