Ladies and gentleman, I am absolutely bursting with pride, as I get to tell you the wonderful news that my client, the irrepressible Jeff Strand, has been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award by the Horror Writers Association.
Look at the ballot:
Mark Worthen and Hank Schwaeble, Stoker Awards
Committee Co-Chairs, have announced the final ballot
for the 2006 Bram Stoker Awards:
Superior Achievement in a NOVEL
Headstone City by Tom Piccirilli (Bantam)
Liseys Story by Stephen King (Scribner)
Ghost Road Blues by Jonathan Maberry (Pinnacle)
Pressure by Jeff Strand (Earthling)
Prodigal Blues by Gary A. Braunbeck (Cemetery Dance)
Jeff's novel, which is one of the best psychological thrillers I've read, was put out by a small press as a limited-edition hardcover. It's still available for sale on Amazon here: PRESSURE. We're actively working to get the paperback rights for it sold, and if they do (fingers crossed), it'll be available to many more readers out there.
Congratulations, Jeff! You rock!
