With great excitement and gratitude I announce that Whistling Past the Graveyard was awarded the 2014 SIBA Award for Fiction. I can’t thank the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance enough for this honor, and for all of the support they’ve collectively given this book. When I learned that WPTG had been selected as a finalist, I was over the moon. The other five finalists were truly amazing books, written by wonderfully talented authors. I didn’t dare hope. But dreams apparently do come true!
