Real life has kept me busy, so I've fallen a bit behind on announcements in the writerly world. A few exciting happenings took place recently or are taking place soon.
First of all, the biggie: I received an Honorable Mention by the Roswell Award for my short story, "Asylum." I am beyond thrilled to be one of the eight stories chosen. The awards ceremony was held this previous weekend - unfortunately, with the new baby and two old babies (my kids, LOL), I wasn't able to attend. Hopefully next year! And congrats to all my fellow Honorable Mentions and Finalists for the award.
There's an interview that came out yesterday at HorrorAddicts.net, in which I talk a little about my recently published story in Once Upon a Scream and my experiences with writing. It explains why I love horror so much, and what I'll be working on next.
Next week, my review of Catherine Onyemelukwe's memoir, Nigeria Revisited: My Life and Loves Abroad, is expected to be published in Bewildering Stories. The magazine will also publish an interview with me in July.
And that's all, folks! Hope you have a good night.
Who the heck is Alison McBain?
