    Five Months Ago…

    We Did “The Last Sale” in October, 2022… That’s right, that was five months ago… Since then we have played with a small sale only for lifetime supporters, another sale to see who would open their mail from Teachable, and one more short fun sale to see who read to the bottom of one of the posts on my site. But the monthly big sales were over last October. And they still are. But a bunch of factors have come together to suggest we should do a surprise half-price sale right now. So we are using the code: Surprise Just hit purchase on anything on WMG Teachable and then on…

    Workshops in Kickstarter

    FIVE SPECIALS… They were from earlier Kickstarters and have not been for sale and never will be outside a kickstarter campaign. So since this is for ten of my book series, (Dean Wesley Smith Starter Kit) we went looking for some old special workshops that fit some of my series. And we found five that you may have missed when they went by over the last five years. So here is the write-up about them from the campaign… —- The ones we brought back are the ones that fit with one or more of my series in the Starter Kit. You can get your choice of one, two, three, four,…

    Kickstarter is Live!!!

    And Fun for Me!! You can see it at DEAN WESLEY SMITH Starter Kit.  All kinds of my books, some great special workshops coming back from other Kickstarters (You get a choice if you missed one before) and some fun stretch rewards, including a brand new lecture series. And I was going to add the challenge there as well, but alas it breaks Kickstarter Rules. Sorry. And take a look at the branding. I’ll talk about it later. Only ten days on this one, so really tight turn. Don’t miss it.

    Quick Update

    Code Extended… Seems until I reminded people on my blog last night, they did not know about the blog workshop 50% sale. So I have extended to code to be good through late Sunday night instead of tonight. Popular request. Monday or Tuesday’s blog at the bottom gives you the information and the code. For all things on Teachable, not just the fantastic March workshops starting up.

    Having Fun

    I Love Time Travel Stories… And I really love time travel romance stories. My favorite Lifetime Christmas movie is the old trope of letters through time through an old mailbox. They made it work. Amazing for those kinds of movies. Well, right now I am teaching (with Kris’s help, of course), a Time Travel Romance Study Along. I was going to teach it as an in-person class as well, but only a couple signed up, so I am having fun with the Study Along. And getting to read some amazing stories. Eye is slowly getting better, so that I can. Yay! If you ask why I can teach a romance…

    Wow! A Lot of March Classes Starting

    I Said 12 Classes Starting… But forgot a few of the special workshops from the Kickstarters. The two fantasy start Tuesday for their second session and the science fiction ones start in a week (I will contact you this coming week). And I also did not count the Study Along which is keeping me crazy busy reading as best I can. I am still very slow at that. And fun to see how many people read to the bottom of yesterday’s blog. Just a little Easter Egg, I guess some people call it. Anyway, again here are the workshops that are starting that are available to everyone… These are all…

    Your Favorite?

    Michael La Ronn Does His Favorites… Michael La Ronn, who is a great writer and also has an amazing YouTube channel, decided to do his top ten favorite WMG Workshops and Classes. It is amazing video, fun and well done. Watch it. I have it posted below. Thanks, Michael. He describes some of the classes far, far better than I can because he is coming from the student side of things. But WMG Publishing has over 300 different active workshops, classes, lectures, and extra fun stuff about writing and publishing on Teachable. And more starting up every month. Yes, it is a lot. Any aspect of writing and publishing you…
