BEST YOUNG ADULT NOVEL
Due to a lack of nominations, we regret that there will be no award given for Best Young Adult Novel this year.

Congrats to all.

Jon and I are very excited to be on the same list as the other nominees in the Special Service Award Catagory. They are an inspirational group of people. All have an astounding passion and energy for the world of mystery. We hope we can live up to even the nod. Ali was there at the very beginning of Crimespree, in fact helped us come up with the name for the magazine. There's a smile on my face just looking at his name here.

Crimespree did high fives over the nomination of "My Father's Secret" by Simon Wood. Mr. Wood's story is truly remarkable. I feel a bit like the boys from Plots with Guns must have, an untraditional Short-Story outlet being given recognition for "their " work.The quality of the short stories in our magazine is astounding and recognition of that is a pat on the back for the magazine, a gift to the many who have contributed stories over our first three years. Steven Torres recently won a Derringer for a story that appeared in our magazine, and last year David Case was nominated for an Award for his.

The "their" when it comes to short story fiction in Crimespree comes down to the one. Jennifer Jordan is a remarkable woman. She's worked hard making this facet of Crimespree work. So Simon "Whoo!" and Jen4? Thank you and "Whoo, Whoo!"

I am so happy to be a Jordan, I keep the most excellent company.

Ruth
