Twice Watched Tales: Some people only watch a movie once. Once they know how it ends they have no interest in seeing it again. Other people watch movies over and over. I’m in the latter category. Check out my (very partial) list of movies I like to watch over and over today at SleuthSayers. And tell us what you like to watch again and again:

Very appreciative of this review of #BrokenWindowsNovel from Criminal Element: “Although it’s set in 1994, it’s eerie how timely this story is. I’m an ecstatic new fan of Duke’s.” #writers #amreading #mystery #thriller #noir

The question today at 7 Criminal Minds is: Do you love/hate/mind/notice/use/ignore the publishers' and booksellers' classifications of your work? My thoughts on the subject and come tell us yours.

The Best American Mystery Stories of 2018

Today is a very exciting day for me: My story Windward appears in The Best American Mystery Stories of 2018 (edited by Louise Penny and Otto Penzler), dropping today. I talk about what an honor that is and my disbelief that it could really be happening. Today at SleuthSayers. Hope you’ll stop by.

The “Broken Windows” Tour of L.A. today at SleuthSayers. One of the things I really enjoy is writing about Los Angeles in the context of a mystery-thriller. In “Broken Windows,” P.I. Duke Rogers and his very unPC sidekick, Jack, are on the hunt for the killer of an undocumented worker. – So what does this have to do with the young woman who climbs to the top of the famous Hollywood sign—and jumps to her death. And a disbarred and desperate lawyer in Venice Beach who places an ad in a local paper that says: “Will Do Anything For Money.” — “Broken Windows” went live yesterday at all the usual places. Would love it if you could read and review it.

I’m thrilled and honored to have won the Macavity Award for Best Short Story for Windward, from Coast to Coast: Private Eyes from Sea to Shining Sea (from Down & Out Books). And I want to thank Janet Rudolph and the readers and voters of Mystery Readers International. (Also look for Windward in the upcoming Best American Mysteries of 2018, edited by Louise Penny and Otto Penzler.) – I also want to thank everyone who voted for Windward for the Best Shamus Short Story and for the Anthony for Best Anthology for Coast to Coast. You’re all terrific and I really appreciate your votes.
