The Shirley Jackson Awards & Love from The Toast

Two bits of wonderful news from yesterday!

First, there was a lovely write-up about my fiction in The Toast/The Butter yesterday: “This Writer’s on Fire: Carmen Maria Machado.”

“Machado tells the stories that are hidden just beneath the stories you think you know. The stories you’ve been waiting for without knowing it…She reveals new shapes, new forms, what’s been hidden right there all along: pain, joy, pleasure, horror.” — Melissa Moorer

Second, my story “The Husband Stitch” was nominated for the Shirley Jackson Award. The award was established in 2007 for “outstanding achievement in the literature of psychological suspense, horror, and the dark fantastic.” I’m a huge Shirley Jackson fan, so I’m really, really honored to have been nominated.
