    Available….

    Some Classes Started And Still Available… I just posted the third week of 52 weeks of both the MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY and CREATIVE SURVIVAL classes. Every Monday morning you have four videos each class. All year long. This week on CREATIVE SURVIVAL was basically about standing up for your own work. MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY was uplifting with a great quote from Charles de Lint as the pithy comment of the week.

    HEARTS COLLIDE Kickstarter

    Launches at Noon on Tuesday!! Five Volumes of 100 short stories, half by Kris, half by me. We are calling these stories our “strange romances” because trust me, they are not regular romances.
