Bram Stoker Award Nomination for This Appearing House

Hello! It’s been a minute but I just wanted to pop in here and say that This Appearing House has been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Middle Grade Novel and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

The Horror Writers Association has been giving out the Stoker award since 1988 but 2022 is the first year they have extended this honor to a middle grade (ages 8-12) novel. I am beyond thrilled to be nominated in the inaugural year.

Voting for Active members is currently open (check your inboxes for the ballot from HWA) and the awards ceremony – which is like the Oscars for Dark Writing and affectionately referred to as “Horror Prom” – will take place in Pittsburgh (yay! my other hometown) in June. I’m excited to go and get a chance to meet my fellow horror friends.

Give a shout out if you’re coming to StokerCon!

I live in Brooklyn which is good except when it’s not which is horrid. I’ve been writing for awhile, and have some stuff published and some stuff not. I don’t like when people refer to pets as their children and I can’t resist a handful of cheez-its when offered. I have a burning desire to go to Antarctica, specifically to the South Pole so I can see where Robert Falcon Scott died. I like to read books. I like to write stories and poems. I even wrote some novels. You can read them.
