Congrats to my publisher ChiZine Publications for winning not one but two World Fantasy Awards. ChiZine won best collection for Helen Marshall’s Gifts for the One Who Comes After (tying with Angela Slatter’s The Bitterwood Bible and Other Recountings from Tartarus Press). Publishers Brett Savory and Sandra Kasturi also won the Special Award – Professional, for all their achievements.
I went with ChiZine years ago with my Cross books because they’re a fearless, brilliant publisher who are willing to take chances that other publishers can not or will not take. They publish the books that are about vision, not marketing/bookstore niches — and better yet, they back them! If you’re connected with CZ on social media, you’ll see how much everyone there cares about the books they publish. As most writers know, that’s not often the case with publishers. So it’s great to see ChiZine get some love.
Now I’m off to ask them for a deadline extension….
