We’ll soon be finding out who the winner will be for the Bony Blithe Awards. When I visited their website, I found out that the Bony Blithe awards are the Canadian awards for “light mysteries”. All of the nominated authors have to be Canadian citizens, or at least residents of Canada >>> permanent residents, that is! Young Adult and Noir mystery authors are not included in the nominations. They liken their Bony Blithe Awards to our Agatha Awards, which as I have said many times, are the Coziest of the mystery awards. Apparently these awards used to be presented at the Bloody Words Banquet, but are now being presented at the Bony Blithe Bash.
Congratulations to all of the nominees of this year, and all nominees and winners from the previous years!
