Ngaio Marsh Award: Who's next?
Exciting times here at Ngaio HQ, where we're about to announce the nine book longlist for the 2015 Ngaio Marsh Award. It's crazy to think of how far the Award has come since it kicked off in 2010, and all the wonderful people who have been involved along the way. I'll be posting a fair bit about the Award in the coming weeks, as the longlist, finalists, then winner are announced. There are also some ideas bubbling away to further bring New Zealand crime fiction to the fore at home and abroad, so watch this space.
If you're on Facebook, it would be terrific if you could 'like' the Ngaio Marsh Award Facebook page (click here). You'll be able to keep up with what's happening with New Zealand crime writing, announcements, go into the draw to win sets of New Zealand crime novels, see photos from events, and much more. I really appreciate everyone who has supported the Award along the way, from authors to festivalgoers, judges and readers to bloggers, reviewers, and mainstream media all over the world. It feels like a big family, so thanks for being part of it.
