I’m thrilled to announce that my tie-in novel, THE KILLING: UNCOMMON DENOMINATOR, has been nominated for a 2015 Scribe Award, the awards by which the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers acknowledge “excellence in this very competitive field.”
IAMTW’s Scribe Awards honor licensed works that tie in with other media such as television, movies, gaming, or comic books. They include original works set in established universes, and adaptations of stories that have appeared in other formats and cross all genres. Tie-in works run the gamut from westerns to mysteries to procedurals, from science fiction to fantasy to horror, from action and adventure to superheroes. Gunsmoke, Ghost Whisperer, CSI, Star Trek, Star Wars, Shadowrun, Underworld, Man from UNCLE, Doctor Who, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, these represent just a few.
The Scribe Award winners will be announced at ComicCon San Diego in July. The exact day, time and location of the Scribes Panel including the award ceremony will be announced shortly.
IAMTW congratulates the following nominees:

24: Deadline by James Swallow
