And the Stalker Nominees Are…

For the past three weeks, to coincide with May being mystery month, I took nominations for the inaugural Stalker Awards, given to authors and mysteries/thrillers published in 2010 that you’re obsessed about. Today, as the month wraps up, I’m pleased to reveal the nominees, determined by crime fiction readers everywhere.

You can now vote for one winner in each category. I’ll keep the poll open for one week only, until June 7, 9 p.m. PST, and reveal the results next week.

Thanks to all who took time to send in your ballots, and to those who helped spread the word. Hope you see some of your favorites here!

*Poll is now closed. Click here for winners.*

    Thanks for voting, everyone! The races are super tight so I keep refreshing the pages every few minutes to see who has pulled ahead. It’s like having the Kentucky Derby right on my computer!

    EIREGO—I want a sticker!

    Sorry I didn’t contribute to your ballot, PCN ~ I just didn’t feel I’d read enough to volunteer anything objective enough. As it is, I’m guessing you’d pick my survey even if I hadn’t added my name to it!

    Fun, fun, fun! Love that there were a few that I had forgotten or are on my TBR pile. (Win! How could I forget him?!)

    And yes, the ballot with “I don’t stalk authors on social media. I leave that to the wife!” was Brian. 😉

    Shell—No worries. You can participate as much or as little as you’d like!

    Paulette—If you do, I’ll track you down and…well, can’t reveal ALL my plans on the Internet.

    Christine—You probably didn’t think of Win because Caught wasn’t a Myron book. But Win showed up anyway! I KNEW that was Brian. Hilarious.
