Dame Agatha has been turned on her ear again. At the risk of sounding monotonous...
DAME AGATHA'S SHORTS has been nominated for a Macavity award!
The Macavity is named for T.S. Eliot's mystery cat from Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. The award looks like a sleeping cat lying atop a stack of books and is given each year in the fall by Mystery Readers International, an organization of readers, writers, and anyone else in the business. http://www.mysteryreaders.org/
I've been in way too much shock over all this, and so have been downright rude in not congratulating my fellow Macavity and Anthony nominees. Cheers to you all.
