Re your question below:

> And those [subsequently published Debut Dagger
> winners and nominees] would be?

The winner of the 1998 Debut Dagger, the first one ever given, was Joolz Denby's STONE BABY

1999 - Caroline Carver's BLOOD JUNCTION (Orion)

2000 - Simon Levack's A FLOWERY DEATH, eventually published as DEMON OF THE AIR (Simon & Schuster)

2001 - Edward Wright's CLEA'S MOON (Orion)

2002's and 2003's winners, respectively Ilona van Mills's SUGARMILK FALLS and Kirsten Evans's THE CUCKOO, haven't yet been published, but I understand they've been sold.

Barbara Cleverly's first novel, THE LAST KASHMIRI ROSE, a Debut Dagger nominee, has since been published by Constable, and has been spun off into a series of, so far, three books.

The CWA website only lists the winners, so TWO-WAY SPLIT and THE LAST KASHMIRI ROSE are the only runners-up I KNOW were subsequently published, though I've been told that there have been a lot of sales from the ranks of the nominees.
