‘For Those In Peril On The Sea’ Selected As Finalist In The Horror Genre For Foreword’s ‘Book Of The Year Award’

13 Mar

Some of you will remember that when it was first published, For Those In Peril On The Sea was selected as a finalist in the Winter 2013 Foreword Firsts book competition for first time novelists run by Foreword Review.

Well, For Those In Peril On The Sea has now also been selected as a finalist in the horror genre for the even more prestigious Foreword’s 2013 Book of the Year Award.

This award is for books not published by the ‘big six’ publishing houses, and aims to recognise excellence in independent publishing. As always, it’s good to see the zombie genre represented within the finalists for the horror genre.

The winners within each genre, and overall across all books entered will be announced sometime in May, with a celebration of the winners taking take place during the American Library Association Annual Conference in Las Vegas on Friday, June 27 at 6 p.m., with awards in over 60 categories, cash prizes for the best in fiction and nonfiction, and widespread recognition.
