    Kristine Kathryn Rusch Starter Kit

    New Kickstarter Campaign Now Live!!! What I have been mentioning the last four or five days has now gone live. Kristine Kathryn Rusch Starter Kit is a Kickstarter Campaign to get readers the first ten stories in ten of her series. Now, she has more than ten series, but this ten are what she and Allyson thought were the major ones. And in the Rewards you can get all the books in all ten of the series for a discount, plus the Starter Kit. In the stretch goals there are books from other Kris series. If you love Kris’s writing, this is the Kickstarter for you. Kristine Kathryn Rusch STARTER…

    Just Waiting

    Kickstarter is Jammed… Just been waiting now for nine days for Kickstarter to approve our new campaign so we can launch it. Seems everyone should give them more time in the future. They wrote me and apologized and said they were doing the best they could. If approved tomorrow, I’ll give them the extra days. But from now on out we put campaigns in for approval two weeks ahead of when we want to launch. Just never expected this. So with luck, tomorrow, I might do a post here with a link that we have launched. But I am not holding my breath, even though there is nothing wrong with…

    Thinking of Dictating?

    Kevin J Anderson can show you how it is done. On Kevin’s Dan Shamble Kickstarter campaign, he has the raw audio files of the entire new book he dictated, untouched. If you ever thought of wanting to dictate fiction, listen to how Kevin does it. The entire raw file at the $100 reward level. No professional author who dictates ever lets anyone see their raw file. This is the chance to get one for his new book and learn from the entire raw file, first word to last. Plus you get a copy of the ebook to compare it to. ONE MAJOR PROBLEM… Kickstarter campaign only has 44 hours left…

    Why All The Stretch Rewards?

    Why Give So Much Away? Got that question a lot this time, more than any other campaign we have done, although I must admit, that question is pretty normal for our campaigns. If a person does a $5 pledge to get an early copy of RESCUE TWO in electronic form, as I write this they get ten more books and nine workshops worth $1,350.00. But that is about to jump one more goal to eleven books and ten workshops. Why do this? Why give so much away? Two major reasons, actually. First, this is a campaign for my new Seeders novel RESCUE TWO. It stands alone, but gives a good…

    LESS THAN 40 HOURS LEFT!!

    Ends on Thursday at 7 pm West Coast Time. RESCUE TWO Kickstarter Campaign Only forty hours to get the two special workshops, or deals on other workshops, or great deals on a bunch of my books.

    Two Special Workshops

    Only Available In the RESCUE TWO Kickstarter Campaign. These both fit in well with the space opera and science fiction nature of the Seeders books. And both are going to be great fun. RESCUE TWO KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN… ONLY THREE DAYS LEFT!!!  —  WRITING IDEA FICTION Special Workshop!! NOT OFFERED ANYWHERE ELSE BUT IN THIS CAMPAIGN. Idea fiction is an entire area of science fiction, and many writers believe that is all that makes up science fiction. They are wrong, but it is a large part of the genre.  An important part to know how to do. Kris and I have put together this three-week class to help you understand what makes a…

    Lifetime Subscriptions

    Lifetime Pop-Up Subscription… We are going to add it, and the first time it is being offered is for half price as a reward in the RESCUE TWO Kickstarter Campaign. It will be up next weekend at full $3,000 price on Teachable. And shortly there will be 79 different pop-ups included in it.  With more coming all the time. Also, a real amazing deal is the Lifetime Workshop Subscription. It is also a reward on the Kickstarter at half price for the four days the campaign has left. We also have Lifetime Subscriptions to the Study Along classes (included all the old ones already done) and lectures, but neither of…

    Kickstarter News

    Brandon Backed All Publishing Kickstarters Or at least all the viable ones. How cool is that? And he helped a number of them fund and watching the video is also great fun. He, or one of his people, backed the RESCUE TWO campaign as well. Thanks, Brandon! Over the years I have backed a lot of campaigns, but never as many as he did today. Number totaled over 300. Wow! And he said at the end that readers now will start thinking of Kickstarter as a way to find books. Basically we are all creating a new market to help readers find new books, new authors, and innovative publishing products.…

    Internet Issues

    So One of These Blogs… Writing this  to load with the hot spot on my phone. Seems Tuesday night around midnight is a good time for the cable people to do work. Annoying. My eye is just about done with screen time for the day. Read a large number of great stories for the Thriller/Humor workshop, and did a lot of regular assignments for workshops and a ton of other stuff. So busy, but just about done. My eye is getting tired. So remember the Kickstarter has hit four stretch goals, which means three free Pop-Up classes on world building in science fiction. And more to come. And two really…
