To my great astonishment, I have just been notified by the Alaska State Council on the Arts that Governor Sarah Palin has chosen me to receive a Governor’s Award for the Arts. I am to be named Artist of the Year on October 26, 2007, at an event in Fairbanks.
I’m pretty flabbergasted right now, and kinda verbless along with it. More later.
Okay, I lied, I didn’t blog from Bouchercon. Sorry, but you can go here and look at Karen Laubenstein’s photos, and you can go here, find the “Bouchercon 2007: An Alaskan “Mystery” video, and watch my film debut in a black-and-white B movie with Harley Jane Kozak and gumshoe John “Dick” Tracy.
