The previous AfD for this was closed as "no consensus" on the basis that the book had been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award. The only problems with this is that the book did not win and being nominated isn't really a feat that shows notability- especially when you consider that anyone can nominate someone for a Stoker Award, even the authors themselves. A search for the book did not bring up any usable sources to show notability, as everything I found were from non-notable blogs or non-notable magazines. I'm also nominating the author. While her page is sourced, it's all primary sources from her own blog, her workplace, links to organizations she donates time to, a link to Amazon, and other sources which are non-usable for the reasons stated above. Neither the book nor this author are notable. Tokyogirl79 (talk) 08:55, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

I am also nominating the following related pages for the reasons stated above:

Araminta Star Matthews (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs)

I'm adding these as well because I am unable to find any independent and reliable sources to show that this author and this digest have any notability. These are all ultimately puff pieces for people and items that do not yet have any notability per Wikipedia's guidelines.

  • Comment There's also a COI going on here, as the person who added these pages is also an employee for Dark Moon Books, Matthews' publisher. I might add more to this AfD as his edits have been primarily to add his workplace and various authors from said publisher onto Wikipedia.Tokyogirl79 (talk) 09:01, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Delete Blind Hunger per its own reception section. Not notable and (allegedly) promotional. No vote on the others, haven't looked. InedibleHulk (talk) 10:02, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Delete Matthews. If her most notable accomplishment is Blind Hunger, it's just logical. InedibleHulk (talk) 10:12, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
