The Anthony Award Nominations for 2018

I am so excited to share the nominations for the 2018 Anthony Awards.  It's gratifying to see some of my choices making the list.  There are so many deserving authors and mystery/crime community members for these awards, and I wish they all could be nominated and win.  It's going to be a special night in September when I am sitting at the awards ceremony at Bouchercon to hear the single name called who has been selected from so many.  Here are the nominees and the work for which they are nominated.
