My friends, I’m delighted to announce that Little Dead Red was recommended for the 2015 Bram Stoker Awards Preliminary Ballot. This means that some members of the Horror Writers Association liked it enough to recommend it, and it may or may not be on the final ballot, which consists of five stories.

It means that people are reading Little Dead Red, and I’m exceptionally grateful. It is very dear to me, a dark story, and kind of fell to the wayside with all of the publishing brouhaha that went on last year. Being recommended (not nominated. Nothing is considered nominated until it’s on the final ballot) means the world to me.

If you are a voting member of the HWA and would like an ecopy of Little Dead Red to read for consideration, drop me a line at mercedesyardley (at) gmail (dot) com. If you aren’t a voting member but are interested in reading LDR and want to support the author (that’s me!) you can pick it up here.

To see the complete preliminary list, hop on over to the HWA page.ย Thank you, and good luck to the other wonderful authors! There are a great many people I respect and enjoy on that list.
