Due to several deadlines, I've been unable to complete my Year in Review posting that I had planned for just before the dawning of the New Year. I have SO MUCH to be thankful for over the last twelve months, and wanted to encapsulate it all into one cuddly, gushy mega-piece, but haven't had the proper time. I shall attempt to rectify that before the month comes to a close.

In the meantime, it's coming up upon awards season in all areas of entertainment, including publishing, and specifically dark and horror fiction. The first to lead the charge with a complete nomination list is the This Is Horror Awards 2015, which has somehow seen fit to include The Nameless Dark - A Collection on the docket for Short Story Collection of the Year. I'm deeply humbled by this nomination, and look with hopeless trepidation at my fellow nominees. Still, I count it as a wonderful honor, and one for which I am extremely grateful, as it means that a few people outside of my home enjoyed the book, which makes it all worth it.
