Congrats to Mercedes M. Yardley (editor) and all the contributors to the Arterial Bloom anthology on their Bram Stoker Award nomination.

Although we always say it’s never about the awards, it’s pretty cool to know that since our launch in August of 2012, Crystal Lake Publishing has received 34 award nominations and 17 wins. 50/50. That’s a pretty good record, and we have a strong feeling more are on the way this year.
