The blog is not even one month old and I've surprisingly received one of the many awards that get bestowed on those lucky enough to be read by award givers. I am surprised and flattered. I doubt I'll be receiving any more unless the traffic picks up around here (the light is always green, by the way). But no matter. I'm glad it's the blog that's thought of as stylish. If anyone saw my unkempt clothes, unshaven face and bare feet while I was typing madly at this computer the award would most likely be taken away in an instant.
An official thank you goes out to Bev from "My Reader's Block" who gave my this award and who I think is largely responsible for the birth of this blog. It was her Vintage Mystery Reading Challenge that got me to see the light. And I'm glad I did. My world became just a little bit bigger and I've found some nifty, well-read people who like the same kinds of books I do. Not at all a bad decision, I'd say.
I am supposed to pass on this award to three other bloggers. So here goes (in alphabetical order just like they do in theater programs):
Carol Carr - Author of India Black - a Victorian era historical mystery with a brothel madame who also works as a spy. I have yet to read her book, but Carol's eclectic and sophisticated taste in vintage mysteries impressed me. Buy her book and read it!
Steve Lewis - Creator of Mystery*File. Here's where I first started guest blogging on a regular basis. I submit an article once a month over there now. Excellent source for unusual mystery reading and also movie and TV reviews. (yeah, yeah, it's not "newly discovered." Sue me.)
Yvette - Her blog is called "in so many words..." If there were awards for gracious and friendly people I'd hand one out to Yvette in a heartbeat. I enjoy reading her book reviews, her movie reviews, and heck almost everything she writes about. Thanks for reading my snippet for that flash fiction contest, Yvette. Try this award on for size. It'll fit swell.
