Two Imajin Books Authors Bring Home Bony Pete Awards

We are pleased to congratulate two of our authors--Gloria Ferris and Melodie Campbell--for winning second and third place in the prized Bony Pete Awards. This special contest is only open to registered Bloody Words* attendees and consists of a blind judging of a 5000-word maximum short story.

Gloria, whose novel Cheat the Hangman will be published later this year with Imajin Books, and Melodie, whose novel Rowena Through the Wall will be released in the next week or two, were judged by their peers. They're definitely winners in out books!

Congrats, Gloria and Melodie!

*Bloody Words is an annual Canadian Mystery Conference that brings together mystery, suspense, crime and thriller writers from all across Canada, and this year it was held in Victoria, BC.
