Rogue Island, my first crime novel, has been selected as a finalist for the Audie award in the best mystery category. The Audies, presented by the Audible Publishers Association, recognize the best audio books of the year.
The narrator and the quality of the production play a major role in the judging, so I owe thanks to Jeff Woodman, who did the narration, and to Audible Inc., the company that produced and distributed the audio book.
Previously, the print version of Rogue Island won the Edgar and Macavity awards and was a finalist for the Shamus and Anthony Awards.
The other books nominated for the Audie in my category are Feast Day of Fools, by James Lee Burke, Narrated by Will Patton, Simon & Schuster Audio; Naughty in Nice: A Royal Spyness Mystery, by Rhys Bowen, Narrated by Katherine Kellgren, Audible, Inc.; One Dog Night, by David Rosenfelt, Narrated by Grover Gardner, Listen & Live Audio; and Return to Marshall’s Bayou: A Dassas Cormier Mystery, by S.H. Baker, Narrated by a full cast, Siren Audio Solutions
Cliff Walk, the second book in the Mulligan crime novel series, will be published on May 22, and is available for pre-order here.
