The Tears of Isis Spotlighted on Next Best Book Blog

The news now, of course, is that THE TEARS OF ISIS is on the finalists’ list for the Bram Stoker Award® for superior achievement in a Fiction Collection.  But before a book can even get to the early recommendation stage, it first has to be published – which may be the hardest part of all.  Despair not, however, the ways are many, including first having a book worth reading, but then keeping an eye out for opportunities and being prepared to jump when those opportunities arrive.

So that sounds like luck, which it is in a way.  But there are ways to help one make one’s own luck which is the subject of a guest post by . . . me . . . that went up on Lori Hettler’s THE NEXT BEST BOOK BLOG today.

  1. Grats on making it to the finalists’ list! Perhaps some day I can get you to sign my copy.

  2. Erin, thanks for the comment — I appreciate it! It looks now like I’ll be at NASFIC aka Detcon1 in Detroit this July as well as World Horror in May, if you go on the convention circuit at all. (Also, hopefully, InConjunction in Indianapolis in early July, though probably only the Saturday, though on that I’m dependent on whether other people are going.)
