for his nomination of best humorous mystery novel for this year's Left Coast Crime.

I'm adding my congratulations to Mr. Orenduff, as well. I'm reading the first book of his series on my Kindle right now, and enjoying it very much.

I predict a winner. Mike's books are the funniest mysteries I have ever read, and I mean that in a good way!!!!

This is really a coup and shows how good his book(s) is. Most of these contests are not all that friendly to authors with independent presses. I'm thrilled for Mike, he's really achieved a lot in a short amount of time. Go get em in New Mexico!

Mike: I wish I could be at Left Coast and help stuff the ballot box but I really don't think you will need it. Can't wait to get my hands on the newest one.

Mike Orenduff said...

Thanks, Carol. I'll wager you are the only OTP author who knows where Sand Point is. The shirt I have on in the author picture on my books was purchased there.

Mike Orenduff said...

Thanks, Marilyn. Wish you and Hap could be there.

Just send Mitch to cover the event.

If only it were that easy! LOL

Mike, you are putting OTP on the map! The nomination is huge. You deserve it!

Mike Orenduff said...

Thanks, Sunny. Your help was a big part of it.

Indeed I do know where Sandpoint, ID is, Mike. About 80 miles up the road. A great book town in a fabulous setting. I just know you're gonna the Left Coast Crime award.
