Blow Down takes silver


I was delighted to see that Blow Down, #4 in my Plumber’s Mate Mysteries, has done pretty well in Elisa Rolle’s 2016 Rainbow Awards – it came second in the Dorien Grey Award for Best Gay Mystery/Thriller, and fifth in the overall category of Best Gay Book!


best-gay-2016To Love a Traitor, my toloveatraitor72web1920-set historical romance, was also a runner-up in the Best Gay Book Category, and romantic comedies Lovers Leap and Out! both made it to the finals, receiving Honorable Mentions.

Many thanks to all involved with the awards, and especially to Elisa Rolle, who does so much to promote our genre, and LGBT causes generally – the 2016 awards raised over $14,000 for LGBT charities, which is absolutely amazing!

Congratulations to all the winners!

About jlmerrow

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again. Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Find JL Merrow online at:
