Preliminary Ballot for the Bram Stoker Awards®

Each year the Horror Writers Association presents the Bram Stoker Awards® for superior achievement in novel, first novel, young adult novel, long fiction, short fiction, screenplay, anthology, fiction collection, non-fiction, poetry and graphic novel.

I am delighted to say that Delphine Dodd is included on the Preliminary Ballot for the Bram Stoker Awards® in the Long Fiction category. Soon the current list will be narrowed down, and the works on the Final Ballot will be the year's nominees.

Here is the full Preliminary Ballot. Congratulations to all of the writers listed, and to all of the writers on the HWA Bram Stoker Award® Reading List. This has been a hell of a year for horror.
