Hey, I am as shocked as you are, but apparently The Book of Accidents went and won itself one of them fancy Dragon Awards @ DragonCon for Best Horror Novel? I say I’m shocked not because I don’t stand by the book — I do! I like it just fine, thanks. But it was in some really stellar company, and I say with all sincerity it’s a win just to be mentioned in the same breath as those writers. (C’mon, Stephen Graham Jones, Grady Hendrix, Caitlin Starling, Daryl Gregory, Kiersten White? That’s a helluva group to be in.)
But apparently, people actually… voted for TBOA, which is so great, and I thank all of you who registered and voted. I cannot be mad at an award that is chosen by fans and readers, which is really great, and I’m over the moon. Week made.
SO THANK YOU, GOOD HUMANS.
Congrats too to the other nominees and winners!
Buy my books or I die in the lightless abyss!

So you get a dragon now right?
I think it’s in the contract
Congrats, Chuck. You the man!
YAY THANK YOU
Wonderful and congrats! And a great cover as well, I might add. Now how about a link please for those of us who are lazy-inclined.
A link to buy the book? You can get a signed, personalized copy from my local, shipped to you:
Congratulations Chuck! Well deserved
Is it weird to say you’re proud of one of your favorite authors? I am so proud of you. 🙂
Oh, I’ll take it! <3
Congratulations! Fantastic news!
I just finished TBOA a few days ago. I’m not a horror fan, but that was a pretty compelling book.
Hey thank you!
Well, it *is* on my wish list…
I’m not shocked at all! It’s the book that led me to want to read all things Chuck Wendig! And I’m ready it again. Congrats!
Aw, hey, thanks!
You’re very welcome! I saw your link above to get a signed copy of the book. I just put in an order and a request for your award winning signature! 🙂 I understand if it can’t be signed. But it never hurts to ask.
<3 — if you bought from D-Town, shouldn’t be any reason I can’t sign!
