Wild Indigo gets special Edgar
Author Sandi Ault to teach in Santa Fe and at
The Tony Hillerman Writers Conference

Sandi Ault's Wild Indigo received the Mystery Writers of America's Mary Higgins Clark Award, a special Edgar. This award sponsored by publisher Simon & Schuster is given to the book most closely written in the Mary Higgins Clark tradition. Wild Indigo received critical acclaim from media, other authors (including Tony Hillerman and C.J. Box) and fans. The novel appeared on nine bestseller lists and sold out of its first printing in less than seven days.
Sandi will teach Make it a Grand First Grand: The First 1,000 Words on Aug. 9 and will offer a pre-conference workshop on editing November 5 at the Tony Hillerman Writers Conference. Other summer workshops include screenplays, travel writing, writing for kids, and research-based prose with award-winning author Sharman Apt Russell.

Praise for Craig Johnson's new mystery
Another Man's Moccassins, Craig Johnson's fourth mystery, won a place on the cover and glowing praise from Publishers Weekly. The magazine called the book, which features Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire, "stellar," "full of crackling dialogue," and an "absorbing tale." Johnson, currently on a multi-city book tour, will join us in November at the Tony Hillerman Writers Conference: Focus on Mystery, where he'll share tips for writing that much-praised dialog and participate in other conference events.
