What’s the Deal with ChiZine Publications?

 

ChiZine publications has established a name and reputation in the horror writing community, but it appears that not all is well. According to various sources, ChiZine has problems paying their authors. Now, I totally understand that mistakes will be made from time-to-time, but apparently when authors approach them about a lack of payment ChiZine brushes them off. That’s never a good thing.

I’ve reached out to ChiZine to ask for their side of the story and have yet to hear anything. I consider myself neutral in this in that all I want is for the parties involved to come to mutual terms and for the publishing house to do better.

Now, other authors have come out to accuse ChiZine, either directly or by proxy, of racism, sexual harassment, and petty behavior. Before you jump to conclusions, please watch the video where I go through the other accusations.

What do you think about this? I’m not a fan of #CancelCulture and do not want people to go after ChiZine. What I would like is for use to calm and rational about this, approach the situation objectively and with redemption as a goal.

The Raw Truth About Genre Writing

We had Jonathan Raab from Muzzleland Press on the show and he talked about something that every horror writer ought to hear. He revealed a bitter truth that could sound jaded, but it’s a simple fact that you have to face as a writer.

While that may not sound very fun, we spent a good amount of time conversing about the importance of the horror genre, the purpose of indie publishers, how to navigate Amazon KDP blocking or rejecting your book, and even talked about Castlevania and how Konami has lost their way.

The Deadman’s Tome podcast is a live show where creative minds get to come to talk about who they are and what they do. While horror, writing, and paranormal are the staples of the show, the topics may spill into other areas such as gaming, crime, and real life.

If you enjoyed the show, become a patron so you can enjoy the green room banter.

After spending twenty years as the lead singer of a progressive metal band, Dallas Mullican turned his creative impulses toward writing. Raised on King, Barker, and McCammon, he moved on to Poe and Lovecraft, enamored with the macabre. During his time at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he received degrees in English and Philosophy, Dallas developed a love for the Existentialists, Shakespeare, Faulkner, and many more great authors and thinkers. Incorporating this wide array of influences, he entices the reader to fear the bump in the night, think about the nature of reality, and question the motives of their fellow humans.

A pariah of the Deep South, Dallas doesn’t understand NASCAR, hates Southern rock and country music, and believes the great outdoors consists of walking to the mailbox and back. He remains a metalhead at heart, and can be easily recognized by his bald head and Iron Maiden t-shirt.

Allison Mack tearfully told a judge on Monday that she first joined the cultlike group known as Nxivm to “find purpose.” She was unsatisfied with her acting career, she said, despite her role on the successful television series “Smallville.”
