So close

The Abandonment of Grace ebookThe finalists for the Bram Stoker Awards were announced the other day, and my collection, The Abandonment of Grace and Everything After, missed the cut. I’m disappointed, of course, but I’m proud to have been listed on the preliminary ballot (and for my book to have been included on that ballot by the jury).

However, I’ve been blessed with successes, too, and it can be all too easy to forget that fact when disappointed by an individual result. So I won’t! Instead, I’m thankful to the people who have read and enjoyed my book – now I just have to convince more people to read and review it! 🙂

Congratulations to all the Stoker finalists! May your work inspire dread in others!
