    Thank You All!

    Very Much Appreciate the Responses on the Workshop Question… So clearly from the comments here and the emails, Kris and I need to start putting this workshop together for some time in early 2022. So thank you one and all. Now that I have heard the comments and such, it is very clear the workshop will be valuable to writers of all levels. That’s perfect. So thanks! Visions of the Future Storybundle has just over one day left. There are some really fun books in this one. Ten books for $15. Great reading and you can give it as a gift if you want. So one day left. Don’t miss…

    Two Amazing Bundles of Books

    And I Curated One of Them… First off I have a Thunder Mountain novel in the Storybundle I curated by the name of Visions of the Future.

    Filler Tonight

    Just to Keep the Blogging Streak Alive… Night like tonight I wonder why I bother, but this streak after nine-plus years of not missing a day doing a blog is so powerful, I have to acknowledge it. Annoying. Granted, I am writing here, but can’t begin to tell you how many times I wished this streak was nine-plus years of fiction writing without missing a day. Maybe that will be part of the new challenge for 2022. More than likely not. I have a few more chapters of the Wet Blanket Reality written, just don’t feel like putting them up right now, so will do so in the next week…

    Visions of the Future Storybundle

    Introduction (Here is the introduction the Visions of the Future StoryBundle I wrote. It explains it pretty well. This is a good one.) Back almost two years ago, in February 2020, just before the pandemic started, I did a Storybundle with the title Visions of the Future. Thankfully, nothing about the last two years was in that bundle of great novels and stories. I don’t think many people, including the best science fiction writers, saw any of this coming in the way it did. So now I get a chance to find writers to look into the future again, only on the downward side of the pandemic. And there is…

    Just Went Live An Hour Ago! I am really proud of this Storybundle because not only is it a great idea for a bundle of books, but for the fantastic writers who are in it. The reading in this will be amazing on so many different levels. So here is my introduction I did for the bundle. The link to the bundle is here… Introduction Justice: A Great Word Dean Wesley Smith I learned that if you ask a writer for a story about justice, you get all kinds of books and genres. But mostly when you say the word “Justice” you get mystery and crime fiction. And that was…

    I Love Being In StoryBundles

    For a Number of Reasons… First, I love reading, as a reader, what the other writers have put in the StoryBundle. Usually takes me the entire time the bundle is up before I get done reading or looking at them all.  But just as a reader who buys it, I love all the different books in a certain topic. Great fun. Second, it helps people find different work of mine that chances are I would write, publish, and forget. Needing a book to put into a Storybundle is a great incentive. And I have actually written a few books over the years just for a bundle. And it gives the…
