Spinetingler Nominations

Well, heck, this is pretty cool. I was on my second cup of java this morning when I received an e-mail from Sandra Seamans informing me BEAT to a PULP has snagged three nominations for the 2010 Spinetingler Awards for Best Short Story on the Web. They are A Wild and Crazy Night by John Kenyon, Insatiable by Hilary Davidson and Paul Brazill’s The Tut. Congrats to all and thanks for submitting such brilliant, evocative stories.

And Kudos to Sandra herself (Big Snoopy dance for you!), Sophie Littlefield, Anonymous-9, Alan Griffiths, Mark Joseph Kiewlak, Frank Bill, and Michael Moreci who round out the nominations. That’s some hard decision making come voting day. All winners, all deserving.

I saw that earlier today. What a coup for Beat to a Pulp, and congratulations to the nominees!

Paul D. Brazill said...

Congrats David & Elaine. And thanks me having me over.

David Cranmer said...

Laurie, I'm very pleased for these three very fine writers.

Paul, It was a pleasure to have you on BTAP. "The Tut" was one of our most popular stories and it's nice to see you receiving this top recognition.

John Kenyon said...

Thanks to you and Elaine for the opportunity, David. It's a great place for great short fiction.

Hilary Davidson said...

David, I was thrilled when you and Elaine agreed to publish "Insatiable." That was before I had a book deal and also before I'd had many stories published. Getting published by BTAP is still one of the best things that's happened to me.

Congrats to you and Elaine for having three BTAP stories nominated, and to all of the writers for their amazing work! I'm excited to be in such great company.

Travis Erwin said...

That's great. Congrats to both you and Elaine and the authors.

Elaine Ash said...

We are truly beside ourselves with joy, and are SO PROUD of our writers. We are only as good as our content, and we never forget the blood, sweat and tears that go into every submission. SPINETINGLER does so much to promote writers, and e-zines like ours, and we're extremely grateful. Paul, John and Hilary, WELL DONE! And please tell everybody about your success!

David Cranmer said...

John, Thanks. Writers like yourself are keeping the standard high at BTAP.

Hilary, Thank you for the kind words and I know your book will be a great success.

Thanks Travis.

Congratulations, David, and thank you, too, for hanging tough and making a place for excellent short fiction.

David Barber said...

Great stuff David. I'll be catching up with some of the stories. Congrats to all nominees.

Congrats! And no fooling on the hard-decision front. I've read most of the stories, and they're across-the-board fantastic.
