What a day! (coached two AYSO soccer games, one of which my son scored a huge goal(!); helped out with a Cub Scouts event in advance of my son graduating into Boy Scouts; entertained visiting family; and it’s my daughter’s birthday(!), and THEN THIS NEWS!)
I received nominations for Superior Achievement in an Anthology for: A WORLD OF HORROR (publ. Dark Moon Books), and also Superior Achievement in a Fiction Collection for THAT WHICH GROWS WILD (publ. Cemetery Dance Publications), which is my baby!!!
Shocked, thrilled, elated, and more… so much more! AND IMMENSE CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OTHER NOMINEES ON THIS BALLOT!
If one is judged by the company they keep, I have bested my highest writing aspirations (well, most of them!).
Read the full ballot here, and wish me good fortune alongside so many well-esteemed peers: www.horror.org/2018-bram-stoker-awards-final-ballot/
Thank you to the Horror Writers Association, who have been an immense resource of technical information, guidance, and insight.
