Quickly now, as the vacation’s still in effect:

The Bridge of Sighs, as I found out by tracking down a Novi Sad, Serbia, internet connection, has been nominated for both Deadly Pleasures Magazine’s Barry Award for Best First Novel, as well as Bauchercon’s own Anthony Award for Best Historical Novel.

Am I pleased?

You can bet your sweet bobby socks I am.
