In the meantime, while you're here, pull up a chair, pour yourself a cup of coffee or a cuppa tea, have a piece of pie and always feel free to speak your mind, and your heart, here at Meanderings and Muses.
The 2017 Bouchercon Chairs, Helen Nelson and Janet Costello are pleased to announce the Anthony Award Nominations.
Congratulations to all.
The winner in each category will be announced immediately following the Sunday Brunch on October 15. While the Sunday Brunch is a ticketed event (buy your tickets through the Registration process), all Bouchercon attendees may attend the short awards ceremony that immediately follows.
