Congratulations, Steven!
« on: April 09, 2007, 06:39:58 PM »

Steven Torres hasn't mentioned it yet (or, if he did, I missed it), but he got two, count 'em, two stories nominated for Derringer awards this week.

In the short-short category (501-2000 words) he was nominated for "Elena Speaks on the City Under Siege," published in the September/October 2006 issue of Crimespree.

In the novellette/novella category (6001+ words) he was nominated for "The Valley of Augustias" from the October 2006 issue of Alfred Hitchcock.

Congratulations, Steven, and best of luck in the final competition!  We'll all be pulling for you.

Many thanks Jim for noticing and to all for the well wishes. I, also, hope I win both awards.  ;D

I'm hoping they give out real derringers as the prize since I feel I should start a gun collection...

It really is an honor to be nominated.

Elena, her last name is Kojic. If that matches your last name, you win a prize...

Sorry, mine is much more mundane, though interesting in that while it sounds and looks English, it is actually Romanian -  :D

Still, it was fun, I don't see my name much.
