2011 Golden Leaf Finalist – ERIS

Another image update. This time to reflect the addition of the 2011 Golden Leaf Paranormal finalist accolade.

That’s right. ERIS got another paranormal finalist status.

Notifications went out 05 September while I was on the road home from Dragon*Con. The NJRW conference when the winners will be announced is in late October. Unfortunately, I’ll be in Hawaii by then so I cannot attend.
