Thanks PWA

It was an honor to have my novella, Julius Katz, nominated by the Private Eye Writers of America for best short story given the amazingly talented authors I was nominated with, especially Brendon DuBois who is one of my favorite mystery short story writers, and I'm floored this morning to find that Julius Katz won the Shamus Award last night.

For those wishing to read Julius Katz, you have 6 ways:

You can download a free PDF from Scribd

Purchase a Kindle download for $2.99 from Amazon

Purchase a Nook download for $2.99 from B&N

Purchase for $1.99 from Smashwords

Read it in the upcoming anthology, By Hook or By Crook and 30 More of the Best Crime & Mystery Stories of the Year

Find the Sept/Oct 2009 Double issue of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine where the story was originally published.

Well earned, well deserved, and fantastic news! BTW, I'm having a great time reading 21 TALES; Dave, you are on a fantastic roll of writing (and getting published) top-notch stuff.

I'll add my congrats to the others, Dave. Although I wasn't able to read the other nominees, I did read your novella via the Derringer voting process, and enjoyed it immensely. Looking forward to more!

Thanks, everyone. Second Julius Katz story, 'Archie's Been Framed' came out a couple of months ago in EQ, my first JK novel is being sent out now to publishers, and I just finished a 3rd JK story,so hopefully there will be more adventures of Julius and Archie in print.

And I read this morning that JK won you a Derringer Award as well. Double congrats!

Thanks, Naomi. It also got me a Readers Choice award from Ellery Queen readers. From feedback I've gotten, JK seems to be something that just about every reader enjoys, especially Archie. Hopefully editors in NY will be feeling the same way.
