    This forum is to be used exclusively for offering HWA members copies of work to consider for the Bram Stoker Awards.

    All work offered must meet the eligibility requirements found at:

    The work can be offered in one or all of the following ways:

    * Attached directly to the post

    * A link to downloadable work from Dropbox, Onedrive, or another reputable cloud service

    * Instructions for emailing a request for the work (recommended if physical copies are being offered)

    Any posts not following the above guidelines will be deleted.

    Additionally, there should NOT be discussion of the work taking place in the forum. Questions can be asked about the publication date, how to obtain the work, or other objective criteria. However, any irrelevant posts will be deleted, no matter how benign, to keep clear of clutter. This includes critical discussions, spoiler alerts, or discussion of the author and the author's other works. No endorsements are allowed.

    All other discussions can occur in our general forum or on the HWA Facebook page.


    This forum is hidden behind a Members Only wall. Only HWA Members of a certain level have access.

    Supporting Level members cannot access this forum.

    Once voting has concluded for the Bram Stoker Awards, all posts currently on the forum will be deleted. This not only provides security for the works, but also prevents clutter and keeps the forum usable year to year.

    Works posted here are strictly for Bram Stoker Awards consideration by HWA members. Any member caught illegally sharing a work found here, whether to individuals outside the organization or to file share websites, will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including revoking their membership.

    Members caught illegally sharing work found here may also be subject to criminal and civil charges brought forth by the work's copyright owner(s).

    If you enjoy any of the work found here, please don't limit yourself to considering it for the awards. Leaving reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and social media will help spread the word about the excellent horror our members are creating.
