Solomon's Grave is officially Nominated for the Bram Stoker Award

I guess we don't need to wait for Monday. The Final Ballot for the 2009 Bram Stoker Award has just been announced, and Solomon's Grave is on it! Whoo hoo! Now I can officially put patches on my elbows and call myself Stoker Nominated. Thanks to the members of the HWA who nominated the book, and best of luck to everyone who made the final ballot. Looking at who else is up for the award for best First Novel, I won't make room on my shelf for the wicked cool award just yet... sigh, it's such a cool looking award, too.... :-) Lots of fellow New Englanders on this list, too!
