Spinetingler Magazine 2012 David Thompson Community Leader Award Winner

Spinetingler Magazine has announced the 2012 Spinetingler Magazine Awards winners, and I’m honored that from amongst such a wonderful group of nominees Book Reviews by Elizabeth A. White was chosen as the 2012 David Thompson Community Leader Award winner.

David Thompson was a bookseller and publisher whose passion for crime fiction knew no bounds, nor did his tireless advocating of crime fiction books and authors. You can learn more about David by visiting Sarah Weinman’s blog, where she compiled a deservedly lengthy list of the tributes that poured in from every corner of the crime fiction community in David’s honor upon his untimely death in 2010.

It is truly an honor to win an award that bears David’s name.

Thank you to the Spinetingler crew for nominating me, and to everyone who took the time to vote. Every person who was nominated does such wonderful things to support crime fiction books and authors, and all were more than deserving. For a group that thrives on murder and mayhem – in print, of course – the crime fiction community is actually quite tight-knit and supportive, and I am proud to be a part of it.

    Congrats, Elizabeth! The hard work you put into this site (and the author promos on social media) is so evident, I have to lie down and rest after reading it. I’m very empathic that way.

    Hope the tacos were extra delicious!
