The Rap Sheet and Spinetingler Awards

One of my favorite genre blogs is The Rap Sheet, a spin-off of January Magazine.

The Rap Sheet follows everything crime fiction. What I like about this blog is that the author spends equal amounts of time discussing the classics of crime fiction (which still influence the genre today) and the newest releases.

Apparently, I am not the only one who enjoys this blog since it was nominated for a Spinetingler Award for service to the genre.

Spinetingler Magazine is an online quarterly literary magazine showcasing the short stories of thriller writers, both established and, especially, emerging authors. They also have reviews and interviews.

But for today's purposes, I want to keep the focus on their awards. Why? Because you can vote right here. Please note, you must hit submit for each category and then go back to vote for the next one.

For once, a literary award that us regular readers can vote for.
