The Horror Writers Association and Stoker Awards Announced

Well it is official. The Horror Writers Association has accepted my application for membership as a professional writer in their group.

Normally they only accept fiction writers, but they deemed my professional writing as a significant contribution to the genre, and they allowed me in. Yippee!

This is a great boost to my work revising my book for the American Library Association, The Horror Readers' Advisory (2004). I will be completely revamping this book for a deadline of November 2010. With my Horror Writers Association membership, I will now be able to pick the brains of the best horror writers in the world through their member discussion boards and resources.

And once I get my feet wet, I plan to start volunteering within the organization. I hope to help them with their blog, Dark Whispers. But really, I will help any way I can.

Also, this weekend, the HWA gave out their annual Stoker Awards. These are the most prestigious awards in the world of Horror. Congrats to all of the winners.

For librarians, I normally recommend you purchase the major winners for your library. Even if you do not know much about Horror, these are always a good bet.
