Independent author Barbara Avon has won the award for Horror Book of the Year at the Feed My Reads Awards 2022.
The Awards are voted on by the public with over 2,000 votes being placed during the voting window.
Avon won the Award for her book “Revived”, a psychological horror in the spiritof “Flatliners”, the 1990 movie by Joel Schumacher.
Description: Steven Gold was a man who turned heads. Men in suits wanted to be him. Women wanted to know him. Little old ladies wished to adopt him to fill the void of missing grandsons. His surname suited him. He lived an idyllic life with his wife of eleven years, Cassie, an artist whose passion for life was so deep, she blocked out the childhood memories that were the cause of her anxiety. On a rainy night, a celebratory dinner proved fateful when Steven was struck by a car. He died for a full 60 seconds. When they revived him, his sins followed him back. Set in 1994, “Revived” is a haunting psychological horror that reminds us that being sorry for our sins, does not free us from damnation, and that not even the ones we love the most can save us. He should have stayed dead.
Avon said, “I’m immensely proud to have won this Award. The journey fromhaving the original idea to seeing my book published, and credited is thrilling. Knowing people have read it and enjoyed it enough to vote is an incrediblefeeling. Thank you so much to everyone.”
Fraser Stoopman, founder of Feed My Reads, added, “I set up Feed My Reads a year ago to bring together a community where people could get to know authors through a series of interviews that go much further than just talking about their books. There have been nearly 100,000 hits on the website in the first year, which is astonishing when you think it started from scratch. Thesupport from both readers and authors has been amazing.”
Fraser continued, “I’d like to congratulate all the nominees and winners on theirsuccess.”
