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 =)

Feisty Females Fanning Fear into Flame!

Thrilled to be included in Sadie Hartmann’s LitReactor thoughts, in her article This Genre is on Fire! 13 Fiesty Females Fanning Fear into Flame!

Forget Women in Horror Month. Women don’t want a month. They want a whole year. Hell, they’re taking over the rest of 2020 and probably all the years after that too.

Regarding me, she had these lovely words to say:

You need to be pretty entrenched in the horror genre scene before you start hearing Kelli Owen’s name. Once you hear it, it’s like a magical talisman that unlocks the whole genre for you. She’s an underground horror goddess. Stories everywhere! All the magazines, all the anthologies, not to mention a huge back catalog of novellas and short stories. Before you can call yourself a true horror fan, you must pay homage to Kelli Owen. I would start with my favorite, Teeth.

Check out the rest of the article to read about the other twelve women who want more than a month and only barely less than your soul…
