Well, to be more accurate about it, my short story “The Right to Remain Silent” published on the most notable Back Alley Webzine has been nominated for the Derringer Award, given out by the Short Mystery Fiction Society. OMG! OMFG!!
All right. Relax. Deep breath. Maintain.
To say this is an honor (and a most unexpected one) would be the understatement of the year. (Or the decade? The century?)
Wow. I feel faint. I think I’m gonna pass out. (That’s because you’re blogging instead of eating lunch, you stupid.)
Am I dreaming? No, it’s true.
My story’s been nominated for a Derringer. And I’d be lying if I said I felt anything other than totally awesome.
