King pips "What Gets Left Behind" at the post

Back in December, I posted that "What Gets Left Behind" had been nominated in the Short Fiction section for the This Is Horror 2012 Awards (post linked from here).  I was thrilled to be listed alongside such great writers as Stephen King & Joe Hill, Cate Gardner, Mike O'Driscoll (and his book was, for me, the winner on the list) and Gary Fry and realised that I had no chance.

Imagine my surprise, then, at the announcement of the awards this evening.  No, I didn't win - that'd be a real Hollywood ending, wouldn't it? - but I did place as runner-up to Messrs. King.

Amazed and chuffed, I'd just like to thank every who took the time to vote.  I appreciate it!
