For the record, anyone who provided a blurb will not be paying for it, so don’t even try. (Aaron G...we will discuss this further!)
But I’d like to ask anyone not attending the convention in Atlanta to please allow me to send these out after I return since I’m just so pressed for time. They’re all numbered and signed and set aside for you in clear plastic slipcases, and when I get back I will also inscribe them with a personal note as a thank you for waiting.
Since these first twenty sold so fast, I uploaded and ordered a second edition that do not have the numbered signature page and with a slightly different design that I will sell if the limited edition runs out. They won’t have the special seal the limited edition chapbooks have on the slipcase or receive a personalized inscription.
Anyway, if you guys can sit tight, I’ll be in touch about sending these your way upon my return. Some are going to Australia, Canada, England, and other wild destinations, so I may need some time to hunker down at the post office. Thanks for your support!
Now onto the con. Check out these badges, with art provided by James Powell. Cool, huh?
From HWA President Lisa Morton: “Here's a sneak peek at the gorgeous cover for our souvenir book, featuring art by Artist Guest of Honor Bob Eggleton and edited by Eric J. Guignard and Bailey Hunter. This baby is FAT, too—over 100,000 words of horrorific fiction, nonfiction, art, and more.”
Check out the full schedule of events here.
The HWA has been running a series of interviews called "Know a Nominee" in the weeks before the convention. These are edited by Doug Murano and facilitated by the lovely Emma Audsley.
Here are some of the nominees who have been interviewed so far:
John F. D. Taff
Corrinne De Winter
Usman T. Malik
Steve Rasnic Tem
Stephanie M. Wytovich
Check out the first in the series of interviews here, and you can read the rest from there.
And congrats to all the nominees!
The anthology contains my story "Night Soliloquy" alongside new fiction by Yvonne Navarro, Mary SanGiovanni, Brian Keene, Roberta Lannes, Kealan Patrick Burke, Chris Marrs, Jesus F. Gonzalez, Weston Ochse, Lucy A. Snyder, Christopher Golden, Tim Lebbon, Rena Mason, Michael McBride, Erinn Kemper, Gene O'Neill, and Gary A. Braunbeck, with illustrations by Glenn Denny Gak, an introduction/novelette by Norman Partridge, and an interlinking story by "The Librarian," aka Michael Bailey, to guide you throughout.
Check out this killer trailer Michael Bailey made for the book, which even my mother thinks is "awesome."

Speaking of AnthoCon, Tim Deal of Shroud just released the Spring Issue, which features "Estuary," my poem about a death which has haunted me for almost eighteen years. You can find it on Amazon in eBook here, and Tim will later compile the work from it into a print omnibus edition.
Get a load of this cover.
This amazing anthology will also feature poetry from:
Stephanie M. Wytovich
Erik T. Johnson
As well as fiction by:
Jessica May Lin
Paul Michael Anderson
...and more announcements to come.
Here's the cover, another spectacular work of art by Michael Bailey.
The books I will have with me in very limited quantity are below, and I'm not sure what Eagle Eye Books will have in stock. So if you want anything signed please be sure to bring it!
Thanks for reading,
