Samhain Publishing announced as Platinum Sponsor of the 25th Annual Bram Stoker Awards
The Horror Writers Association (HWA) is pleased to announce Samhain Publishing as the Platinum Sponsor for the 25th Annual Bram Stoker Awards Banquet. The Banquet will be held in conjunction with the World Horror Convention at Salt Lake City on March 31, 2012 with HWA's Founders Joe and Karen Lansdale and Robert McCammon as Special Guests of Honor.
Don D'Auria, executive editor for Samhain Horror, will be representing the publisher at the World Horror Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. "We're proud to support the Horror Writing community. We're also excited to be a part of the 25th anniversary celebration of these prestigious awards and to support the efforts of the Horror Writers Association in honoring outstanding horror writing," D'Auria said. Launched in 2011, Samhain Horror publishes both established horror authors and the genre's most compelling new voices.
HWA President Rocky Wood welcomed Samhain Publishing's support: "This generous commitment by Samhain is greatly appreciated by HWA and I am sure by all our members. Samhain has proven to be a highly professional and innovative horror publisher at a time when the publishing industry is in flux. We look forward to welcoming Don D'Auria and his team at the 25th Annual Bram Stoker Awards Banquet. I can also announce we will again be streaming the Banquet live on the internet. Last year we had over 600 live viewers worldwide in addition to the over 200 in attendance at the actual banquet. It is through the support of sponsors such as Samhain Publishing that we are able to provide the live streaming."
