I just learned that the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance has chosen PORT CITY BLACK AND WHITE as a finalist for the 2012 Maine Literary Awards in the category of crime fiction. A bit of good news, especially considering the caliber of the other finalists: THE LOST DAUGHTERS by Janis Bolster, and TRESPASSER by Paul Doiron. If we are judged by the company we keep, I’m in a good place.
Winners will be announced in Portland May 31. Brandon Blake will see if he can get the night off at Portland P.D.
