Patry has been an amazing friend to us all this year. She’s kind, and calm, and a voice of reason. I still remember her laughing at me the first time I called her sugar. We’ve had ups and downs this year, and we are so thrilled that Patry is back on the upswing. We love you, sugar!!!!

Watch the cool video Circle of Seven has put together here.

And here’s a sample from the Brilliance Audio version of the book.

Please order Patry’s book today. You won’t be disappointed.

It is a happy day in the Killer Year clubhouse, as well as the St. Martin’s Minotaur house.

DEREK NIKITAS, the author of the best book this year, PYRES, has been nominated for an Edgar Award for Best First Novel.

Derek, congratulations!!!! This nomination is extremely well-deserved. I read PYRES early this year and was so moved by the characters, the unique story, and the lyricism of Derek’s prose. I knew he was something special. This nomination isĀ  so well-deserved, I was all a quiver when I heard the news this morning.

And congratulations to our anthology editor, Michael Homler, who is Derek’s editor as well. He obviously has excellent taste!

Bravo! my friend. Enjoy your day. I daresay it might be a good one!
