I did have another blog planned, about how the current writing project is going (painfully, if you’re asking), but better news has arrived. Beneath the Surface, the anthology published by Shroud last year, has stumbled onto the shortlist for the Bram Stoker award. This pleases me, because it has my short story ‘Secrets (Never Told)’ in it. The winners will be announced June 14th, and I wish the book all the best.
In particular, well done to Tim Deal, the editor. An anthology has lots of writers (and congratulations to them too!), but only one editor, pulling disparate pieces together, and making us all look good.
So, are you a voting member of the Horror Writers Association? Please do try to pick up a copy before you put your tick in the box, and may the (subjectively) better book win. Of course, if you don’t have voting rights on the Stokers, there are plenty of reasons to buy the book anyway. ‘Secrets (Never Told)’ is just one of them. Linky goodness for Americans and Brits.
