Writing While at War

Permuted Press Authors Rhiannon Frater and Emily Goodwin sweep the Contagious Reads Horror Con Awards!

Contagious Reads Horror Con Awards

This past week Permuted Press's very own Emily Goodwin and Rhiannon Frater took the Contagious Reads Horror Con Awards by storm! Emily took home the "Best Female Horror Author", "Best Heroine", "Best Couple/Team", "Best Gore", "Best Horror Novel", "Best Zombies", and "Best Horror Series" for her THE CONTAGIUM series! Rhiannon was the winner of the categories "Best Standalone" for LAST BASTION OF THE LIVING and "Best Vampires" for her novel PRETTY WHEN SHE DIES.

The Contagious Reads Horror Con was a weeklong event that spotlighted female authors who write in the horror genre. The online con took place on facebook from July 13th to July 18th. It included author features, Q&A, and panels. The event wrapped up on the 18th with the first ever Contagious Reads Horror Con awards. The award categories were picked by me, and fans were allowed to nominate their favorites. The only restriction was that the book had to have been published prior to nominations. So books that had been pulled to publish were still eligible. After the nominations voting was again opened to the public. There were twelve categories, with over 390 votes before the polls closed.
