I'm a few days late in reporting this, but over the weekend I learned that Consumption has been nominated for a 2015 Independent eBook Award in the categories of Best Short Story and Best Horror in this year's eFestival of Words.
You can check out the complete list of nominees here. This is a peer-nominated program, so if whoever nominated me is reading this, thank you so much for enjoying Consumption and thinking so highly of it. I'm glad the work stuck with you!
I know it's probably a bit cheesy, but the phrase "it's an honor just being nominated" is certainly apt, and I cannot even begin to express how incredible it is to find my name alongside a bunch of other writer's whose work I enjoy and admire. Somehow I am getting lumped in with the likes of Hugh Howey, David Gatewood, Jason Gurley, William Meikle, Carol Davis, Joe Konrath, Joseph Nassise, Lindsay Buroker, Iain Rob Wright, Therin Knite, and so many others. This is a ridiculous thrill for me!
Award winners will be announced in August, which gives readers plenty of time to devour my 'Chopped by way of Lovecraft' culinary-horror aperitif. You can find it on Amazon for purchase or borrowing through Kindle Unlimited or the Kindle Owners Lending Library now.
