I’m in the Running for an Award and Some Reviews and Other Stuff.

This is Horror is a UK horror site.  Every year they do a contest to select the best horror of the year in a number of different categories, allowing readers to vote.  This year, The End in All Beginnings is one of five books up for Best Short Story Collection of the Year.  (I know, they’re novellas…but, well, they’re Brits.  Maybe it’s measured differently).  Anyway, you can vote for me, if you’d like, by going here and following the voting instructions.  If I win, it’d be cool.  Also, Josh Malerman, my new friend, is up for Best Novel for Bird Box.  If you haven’t yet, read it.  It’s sublime.  And then vote for him, too!

In other news, Grey Matter’s latest antho, Death’s Realm, is out.  Looks effin’ awesome.  My story, “Some Other Day,” is already receiving praise from some readers, and there’s a great review of the book already up at Fangoria.  Go take a look.  My story isn’t mentioned by name, but they do mention The End in All Beginnings as “harrowing.”  I’ll take that.

Finally, if you want some background on the stories, fellow Death’s Realm author Gregory Norris has posted some stuff from each author offering insight into their stories.  Go here to take a look!

As always, more big news on the way…soon!  2015 is shaping up to be an amazeballs year.
