Matthew Parker and Michael Robotham have both been nominated for the 2016 Edgar awards for their works in the mystery genre. The Edgar awards were formed over 60 years ago by the Mystery Writers of America and are considered America's top crime-writing awards. Michael Robotham is in the running for Best Novel for Life or Death (Mulholland Press/Little Brown) which last year won the UK's CWA Gold Dagger.
Historian Matthew Parker has been nominated for Best Critical/Biographical for Goldeneye: Where Bond was Born: Ian Fleming's Jamaica (Pegasus Books/ Windmill Books). Goldeneye is a beautifully written and original exploration of Fleming's extraordinary time spent in Jamaica, where he wrote all of the Bond novels and adds a 'unique... complexity to Bond's legacy' (New York Times). Already a top 10 Sunday Times Bestseller it was hailed by William Boyd as 'completely fascinating, authoritative and intriguing.' It joins a widely acclaimed list of titles by Matthew Parker, which also include Panama Fever, Monte Cassino, The Sugar Barons and his latest book Willoughbyland: England's Lost Colony.
Good luck to both authors.
Our literary agents are happy to consider submissions from new authors, but please be aware that we are a small literary agency with a busy client list and we take on only a handful of new clients each year from the thousands of approaches made to us, many of which are from established writers and artists. If you are a new author, please read the submission guidelines before doing anything else.
