The Stoker Awards?!

So, apparently, “Frank” meets the requirements for nominations for the Stoker awards. If you’re eligible to nominate, please do so before reading the other stories on the list! Ha ha ha. I mean, shoot, don’t get me wrong, I would be tickled to be nominated, but there are so amazing writers right there in that list.

I will also say that Apex Magazine has been really good about promoting “Frank” for the stuff it needs promoting for, which I really appreciate because, gods know I don’t know what those things are. I enjoy Apex as a reader, but I also really enjoy them as a writer. Good folks over there.

I wonder now what genre I think I write in? Honestly, I don’t know. I think of myself as a ghost story writer or a person who writes about hauntings. That may be a better way to put it. I write about hauntings. Sometimes those are ghosts, but sometimes not.

I’m not sure I’m a very scary writer, more unsettling, I’d think than scary. But shoot, “Horror” is a fine genre. I will sit with “Frank” in the “Horror” genre happily.
