Platinum Sponsor Samhain Publishing


Samhain Publishing announced as Platinum Sponsor of the Bram Stoker Awards® Banquet in May 2014


The Horror Writers Association (HWA) is pleased to announce Samhain Publishing as the Platinum Sponsor for the 2013 Bram Stoker Awards® Banquet. The Banquet is part World Horror Convention 2014 in Portland, Oregon and will be held on 10 May 2014, honoring works published during the calendar year 2013.


Don D’Auria, executive editor for Samhain Horror, and Tanya Cowman will be representing the publisher. "We're excited to renew our sponsorship of the iconic Bram Stoker Awards Banquet for a third year. These are prestigious awards and we are proud to support the efforts of the Horror Writers Association in honoring outstanding horror writing," D'Auria said. Launched in 2011, Samhain Horror publishes both established horror authors and the genre's most compelling new voices.


HWA President Rocky Wood welcomed Samhain Publishing's support: "This continuing generous commitment by Samhain Publishing is greatly appreciated by HWA and I am sure by all our members. Samhain continues to be a highly professional and innovative horror publisher, releasing a string of acclaimed books. We look forward to welcoming Don D'Auria and his team at the Banquet. I can also announce we will again be streaming the Banquet live on the internet. Last year there were around 1000 live viewers worldwide, in addition to the over 250 in attendance at the actual banquet. It is through the support of sponsors such as Samhain Publishing that we are able to provide the live streaming."
