Deadmans Tome The Meat Grinder

Attention writers, are you confident in your writing ability? Do you feel that your ability to tell a story is on point? Well, then put it to the test! Send in your stories and let it be at the mercy of the readers. Some will shower with praise, some will tear it down with ridicule, and some might just be kind enough to give you a dollar.

How does this work? Easy, send in story to jessecdedman@gmail.com and it will be placed on the site and given a week to earn feedback in the form of views, likes, and comments. Stories that fail to please to interest the readers, whether the feedback is positive or negative, will be removed from the site. Reader interest would be determined based on whether a story is viewed, liked, or commented on with in first 72 hours it is placed on the site. Stories that receive consecutive negative comments, three comments in a row, will be removed from the site in shame. Authors are free to remove their stories at any time, and they may do so depending on the sort of feedback received. However, the story stays on the Deadman’s Tome site and has the most views, likes, and comments with the first week it is place on the site will earn $50 via PayPal. The authors will compete against each other, share their stories, promote it any way they can, and might even sabotage others.

How it works? Stories in The Meat Grinder stories will post in batches on the first day of the month and those stories will compete. The story that survives to the last day of the month and has the most points will win money. Each view is worth 1 point, each like is worth 2 points, and each comment is worth 3 points.

 

Authors can also earn money in the form of donations. Every story in The Meat Grinder will have the option for donations. Authors will receive 60% of the donations. 40% will go to Deadman’s Tome in hopes to increase the Monthly payout.

Submit your work into the meat grinder and see if it doesn’t turn into pulverized crap.

      1. great

  3. Sounds like an interesting concept.

  4. I have a number of short stories that could possibly be considered horror.. I could send you one to look at if you’d like?

  5. do you mean embedded in the email or send as an attachment

    1. Attached

  6. Do you always reply to submissions? How long does a reply normally take?

    1. I try to always reply. Sometimes things get missed. If you feel like it has been WAY too long, then send me an email.

  7. Thank you for the opportunity. My short story, Hunter’s Moon, has just been sent to your email. Thanks again!

    1. Hi, Mr. Deadman. Just wondering if you received my submission back in December? Never got confirmation. Cheers,
      Toneye.

      1. Take that as a no then? Noticing replies to everyone but mine. All good. Cheers for the opportunity to sub.

  8. Hi,

    You mention flash fiction but list 4000 word approximate word count.

    Are you accepting shorter stories than this? That is, flash fiction?

    Cheers

    1. Good question. I should change it to up to 4000 words. Flash fiction is welcomed.

  9. Hi, got a story around 5800. Is it too long?

    1. Send it. I’ll take a look at it

      1. you really are deaf, dumb and blind when you’re willing to take your sources from Encyclopedia Dramatica. Whose your nonfiction editor, Stephen Glass?

  10. Seeing one of my alumni on here; I think he brought what he learned from being in The Ethereal Gazette with him. Mr. Deadman have you looked into Zahid Zaman or Alex Rivera? They would compliment your mag too — check David Wright from 2007 in this publication as you get to see him hold his own with Matthew S. Carroll and introduced Steven Morgan into the publication. You should try to tap this one for a submission. I will say this much of David, he’s the author who’s going to piss this bastard off. You should really had tapped Tom Kelly to do the artwork for this because he did my work justice.

  16. Pick up a copy of TRESPASS by Chris Miller, published with DEADMAN’S TOME. TRESPASS is an absolutely gripping read from the first chapter. It’s perfectly paced to keep the reader engaged. You won’t want to put the book down once you start reading it. Take a bow Mr. Chris Miller; I absolutely loved this book you wrote and DEADMAN’S TOME published. Good work by all parties.

  17. Are you purchasing rights or can we republish elsewhere?
