HWA Signs with Writers House

hwalogosmallsquareMore fantastic Horror Writers Association news… and another reason all authors in the genre need to belong! The HWA has signed with Writers House, one of the largest literary agencies in the world. This comes within days of the HWA announcing their new partnership with Authors for Libraries.

I can attest that, personally, joining the HWA has been the game changing factor in my own career. My one regret? I didn’t join four years ago when I published my first book.

From author Tom Calen on the Horror Writer Association’s Facebook page Sept. 25:

Based in New York City, Writers House has a history of representing a diverse list of authors, including winners of the National Book Award, Hugo Award, World Fantasy Award, and Pulitzer Prize. Their author lists boast industry giants such as Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Franzen, Ken Follett, and Octavia E. Butler.

Alec Shane, who began his career with Writers House in 2008, will be HWA’s representative at the agency.

“I fell in love with horror at a very young age, so to be able to represent an organization like the HWA as an adult is a dream come true. The amount of talent, energy, knowledge, and enthusiasm that the Horror Writers Association brings to the table in regards to the genre is unparalleled, and it’s an honor to call myself their agent,” said Shane.

“We are thrilled to work with Alec on continuing HWA’s legacy of quality books. Alec is young, enthusiastic, and a dedicated horror-lover, so we look forward to an exciting and profitable relationship,” said HWA President Lisa Morton.
