Today, Foreword Reviews, the only review magazine solely dedicated to discovering new indie books, announced the finalists for its 16th Annual Book of the Year Awards (2013) with Christopher Ritchie’s HOUSE OF PIGS a finalist in the Horror category. In the next two months, a panel of over 100 librarians and booksellers will determine the winners of these prestigious awards, followed by a celebration in Las Vegas, held during the American Library Association Annual Conference on 27 June 2014.
Indie publisher GB Publishing.org (GBP), launched last year with the release of four publications (www.gbpublishing.org), is proud to congratulate Ritchie. His House of Pigs concept exposes the confusion among the lead characters who unaccountably find themselves living in different dimensions that slip and slide into place and bring out formidably different aspects of their personalities – with often dire consequences.
Unlike a murder mystery, the reader is drawn into surreal worlds and, alongside the characters, is forced to wonder who they really are and/or what might be their ultimate transformation.
Ritchie, a magazine and online editor/writer/journalist, married with two children, is currently working on (that’s right) another work of horror. In his spare time he also records and releases music as ‘I have a box’ on Bubblectro Recordings, a netlabel that he co-runs. In addition, he is part of the experimental band – Aural Lab.
