The One About Bronzeville Books

In the Great Clean Sweeping of Twitter 2020* I realized that while I want a clean slate going forward, there are things I do not want lost to the annals of history. The Bronzeville debacle is among them.

But likely not for the reason you suspect.

Yes, Bronzeville Books was refusing to pay me (and others) and I took to twitter to shame them into doing what they should do: honor a signed, legal, contract. They did this and that and blah blah, but the beauty of the ten day campaign was how the horror community came together as one, to point and shout and demand they do what was right.

In the end, I was paid, and I immediately paid it forward by purchasing a book from everyone who helped (whether it was their book or their suggestion). The biggest, baddest book haul I’ve ever done in one sweep came out like this:

I encourage you to check out these books and authors. And at the end of the day, remember who has your back, and pay it forward.

*I’m wiping (or already have wiped) over 26,000 tweets spanning 15 years, and you may have noticed this website was also cleaned out. New decade, new direction! Come along for the ride =) 

Women in Horror Month… the hangover

So February was Women in Horror Month. Did you promote scary creepy horror creating women? Did you read them? Watch them? Offer them sacrifices?

Here’s a brief summary of the places and ways I participated in the yearly event… and I’m posting it now, in March, because it shouldn’t be on your mind during February only. You should always be aware of us… and maybe a little afraid.

Promote Horror did a lovely quick little interview with many of us, here are my answers to those questions.

— I popped on over to Stephen Kozeniewski’s page (Manuscripts Burn) for a quick and dirty Q&A, here are my answers to those questions.

— And there was an essay… It didn’t get printed. It was voted “a bit harsh.” Part of me is a little proud of that. The other part of me wants to say, “Oh yeah? Here, hold my beer…” On the upside, it sounds like it may have found a home and will be seen outside of the constraints of February and Women in Horror Month. It might be June, just because. I’ll let you know.

Meanwhile, check out the two above. For those interested, most of my interviews and other external adventures have been posted on the Press page. Enjoy!
