"A Darke Phantastique" Nominated for Bram Stoker Award

I just learned that the anthology which my short story, "In the Wardrobe" appears in, A Darke Phantastique, is a finalist for a Bram Stoker Award, which is given out by the Horror Writers' Association (HWA).

The category of Superior Achievement in an Anthology...

Qualia Nous (Written Backwards) - edited by Michael Bailey

A Darke Phantastique (Cycatrix Press) - edited by Jason V Brock

Fearful Symmetries (ChiZine Publications) - edited by Ellen Datlow

Burnt Tongues (Medallion Press) - edited by Chuck Palahniuk, Richard Thomas, and Dennis Widmyer

Limbus, Inc., Book II (JournalStone) - edited by Brett J. Talley

What does this mean for my story, "In the Wardrobe?" Not a thing, except that it appears in an awesome, award-winning anthology. On the other hand, I did get a passing mention in a review by Rue Morgue magazine, and I'll take it!
