Yesterday it was named a finalist for the Macavity Award in the best first novel category. The award, voted on by members of the Mystery Readers Journal, is named after the “mystery cat” in T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.
In April, the novel won the Mystery Writers of America’s prestigious Edgar Award for best first novel; and it is also a finalist for the Anthony and Barry Awards. The Macavity, the Anthony and the Barry will all be presented at Bouchercon, the international mystery writers conference, in St. Louis this fall.

Rogue Island is available in trade papeback, Kindle, hardcover and large print editions — although the hardcover is in rather short supply now. You can order any of those editions here.
It is also available as a downloadable audio book from Audible. That can be ordered here.
