Atlanta Resident Nominated for Prestigious Literary Award
Atlanta, GA February 23, 2020 – Atlanta author Peter Adam Salomon has been nominated for the Bram Stoker Award, the highest literary honor awarded to writers of dark fiction. Past recipients of the Bram Stoker Award include Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Jonathan Maberry, and Neil Gaiman.
Salomon, who is also the founder of National Dark Poetry Day, is nominated for Superior Achievement in the Young Adult category for his novel EIGHT MINUTES, THIRTY-TWO SECONDS. This is Salomon’s second nomination. He was previously nominated in 2014 for his YA novel ALL THOSE BROKEN ANGELS.
The Bram Stoker Awards are named for the creator of the gothic vampire novel Dracula and are awarded annually by the Horror Writers Association to recognize superior achievement in dark fiction, poetry, graphic novels, screenplays and nonfiction. This year’s awards ceremony will be held in April in the United Kingdom.
EIGHT MINUTES, THIRTY-TWO SECONDS, tells the story of the last two survivors of the human race. They don’t know why they’re alive. They don’t remember what happened. Addicted to a drug that kills them for eight minutes, thirty-two seconds, they risk the end of humanity in order to learn the truth.
“A twisty and unnerving horror thriller,” says Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of ROT & RUIN and V-WARS. “Scary, mind-bending and fast-paced! Brace yourself…!”
It is available via Amazon and Eagle Eye Book Store in Decatur.
