The Edgar Awards are awarded by the Mystery Writers of America every year, and while they mostly seem to be focused on adult literature, categories do include "Young Adult" and "Juvenile." Occasionally books from my world become relevant in that world too (like when BLOOD BROTHERS by S.E. Hinton was nominated).
Well, there's an interesting development this year - a graphic novel has been nominated. It's JOEY FLY PRIVATE EYE by Aaron Reynold and Neil Numberman. (Here it is featured at Cynthia Leitich Smith's Cynsations.)
I haven't read it yet, but I think it's great that graphic novels are becoming so mainstream they are breaking down walls between what people consider books.
