Gordon McAlpine Nominated for Edgar Award

We are so pleased for our friend and author Gordon McAlpine, whose latest novel Woman With a Blue Pencil is among the nominees for Best Paperback Original Book at this year's Edgar Awards.

The Mystery Writers of America, celebrating the 207th birthday of Edgar Allen Poe for whom the award is named, will honor the best in mystery fiction, nonfiction and television produced in 2015 at a gala banquet in New York City April 28th.

Upon hearing news of the nomination, McAlpine posted the following: “I’m grateful to Phillip Spitzer and Lukas Ortiz, my agents, who helped me to hone and “find” the book in the first place, to Dan Mayer, a brilliant and courageous editor and publishing visionary, to Jake Bonar at Prometheus who got the word out, and to my friends and family who supported me all along — especially my three boys and my wife Julie.”

Woman With a Blue Pencil is McAlpine's ninth book.
