  1. It always amazes me how you pronounce those name so beautifully. This was the first Crime Fiction News Break I showed my husband, and he thought you were a real newscaster. Great job, as usual, Margot!

    • Thanks – to both of you – Sue. 🙂 – I’ll let you in on a secret; Spanish is my second language (I studied it at university), so Spanish pronunciation isn’t usually a big problem for me (not that I never make mistakes – I make lots of ’em).

  2. Thanks as always for this, Margot! I agree with Sue – your pronounciations are brilliant! All these ‘foreigners’ make talking about crime fiction so much harder these days… 😉

    Cheers for the update. There’s a couple more on the list from the Edgar Nominations…..thanks, I think!

  4. Thank you Margot, great stuff – (and still loving those shelves 🙂 )

  5. Margot: Well I am another run in 2015. I have read neither of the Edgar Award winners you mentioned. I have not read any winners of a major award to date. I am going to read the Arthur Ellis for Best Canadian Mystery novel as I have ordered the whole shortlist. Let me make a pitch for a future Crime Fiction Newsbreak to include that winner.

    Have you ever considered a breaking news Newsbreak? I think you could do an excellent “Stop the Blog!” there is breaking news!

    • To tell you the truth, Bill, I’ve not been good at keeping up with reading the award winners either. In some years I read some (or all) of the shortlist for a given award; in some I don’t. And the Ellis winner will definitely be mentioned on the broadcast.
      As for breaking news? I think that’s a great idea, and I’ve actually thought of doing something along those lines. Thanks for the suggestion.

  6. I love hearing you do Spanish names! And the rest of the news was interesting too….

What's your view? I'd love to hear it.
