It’s a New Year, and the month we in the crime fiction community see all the award nominations. We are beyond thrilled to be able to say that three Fuse clients have SIX award nominations among them!

First, the Lefty Award nominations were announced on January 13, and of the five nominees in the Debut Novel category, three of them are Michelle Richter’s clients: Tara Laskowski (ONE NIGHT GONE), John Vercher (THREE-FIFTHS), and Carl Vonderau (MURDERABILIA)!

Yesterday, Tara’s nomination for an Agatha for Best First Novel was announced. And today, the Edgars! John Vercher is nominated for Best First Novel and Tara for the Mary Higgins Clark Award.

Huge congrats to all of them–We’re crossing our fingers and wishing them luck for an amazing awards season!
