Petra’s Ghost a Semi-finalist in Goodreads Choice Awards 2019

I must admit, I almost had a coronary today when I saw that my novel, Petra’s Ghost was voted into the semi-finalist nominee round for Horror in the Goodreads Choice Awards for 2019.

There weren’t a lot of ladies on the original list of authors and I am so grateful to the readers who went the extra mile and typed in Petra’s Ghost as their vote. Just being on a list with writers like Stephen King and Mona Awad is mind blowing for me.

The novels that were elevated to the semi-final round by reader write-ins include:

  • The Luminous Dead by Caitlin Starling
  • Bunny by Mona Awad
  • The Need by Helen Phillips
  • Petra’s Ghost by C.S. O’Cinneide
  • The Monster of Elendhaven by Jennifer Giesbrecht

Hmm. All women writers. I guess I’m not the only one who noticed the low percentage of ladies in the original list.

If you enjoyed Petra’s Ghost, please vote in this semi-final round. I’d love it if this Canadian indie novel about an Irishman on a Spanish trail made it to the big time. To vote go to https://www.goodreads.com/choiceawards/best-horror-books-2019
