Awards For The Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries




I am thrilled! Murder is a Family Business has just received the coveted CataNetwork Reviewers’ Choice Award for 2011.
"CataNetwork reviewers consider your book one of the best that they have read and reviewed this year. Thank you for sharing your talent with all the readers as you entertain us with your stories." Their webswite is: http://singletitles.com/?page_id=6830.

And days later I got a great review from NightOwl http://tinyurl.com/6lvu55q, where the reviewer praised this first book of the Alvarez Family Murder Mystery Series, saying the "only downside was now I want to go get a cat." How fab is that?




Both were totally unexpected and I am grateful. Frankly, I had not been paying too much attention to Murder is a Family Business, as A Wedding to Die For has been garnering all the nominations and awards lately.
I won the 'silver' over at Preditors and Editors for Best Mystery, 2011, and I am one of the finalists for EPIC Best eBook Mystery of the year, 2012.
None of this would have been possible without my fellow authors and the network of people who have been supportive and wonderful. Thank you, one and all!!
Hey, I'm stoked! I'm happy! I feel like a soccer mom with great kids, only my kids are books!

I always have time for you, my friend. I'd wondered how long it would take for people to recognize your talent, and I'm pleased they have. Enjoy the accolades as they come. You've earned them.

As someone who has read your books, I have to say they couldn't have made a better choice. You're tops with me, too, but I don't have a Banner to give you. I can make one, if you'd like! *lol* Congratulations on an honor well-earned.

Heartiest congratulations, Heather. As you know, I'm a fairly new author with MuseItUp and have very much enjoyed a couple of your short stories. I haven't yet read your murder mysteries, but I certainly can't wait to read them now!

Congrats on the award. I have read your books and can agree with the awards board. They made the right decision. Now, don't stop writing. Keep those great stories coming. It's not like the bowler who achieves a perfect score of 300, then gives up the game!!!! You write, Girl!
