October Until The End of the Year Challenge…
Actually, only part of it. A really fun publishing challenge.
Shortly I will be putting up on Teachable all the Collection Classes for 2023. 18 different ones.
Six from the first year we did them in 2021 (and if you bought the full year, yes, you can take them in 2023.)
Six from the second year.
And six new ones for 2023.
I will have all of these posted in about a week or so.
Each collection class is 9 weeks long and you write five stories during that time, as well as learn how to put a collection together, do the cover and sales copy, and publish it on the 9th week. And if you hit all nine assignments, you get credit for a Pop-Up of your choice.
Each class is based around a theme that you write your stories toward in some way or another.
The first year collection classes offered again in 2023 are: Portals, Heroes/Heroines, Holiday, Fantasy, Private Eyes, and Relationships.
This year’s collection classes offered again in 2023 are: Pets, Spies, Space Opera, Thieves, Dynasty, and Time Travel.
The six new collection classes offered for the first time in 2023 are Creatures, School Stories, Villains, Money, Cities, and Murders.
18 different collection classes. Stay tuned, you can sign up for any of the collection classes in 2023 in the next week or so.
So my challenge….?
I am going to do 18 different short story collections between now and the first of the year, all focused with the 18 different topics from the collection classes. The collections won’t be published by the end of the year, but all will be done and turned into WMG Publishing for a nifty publishing schedule idea next year.
That’s right, 18 different books and I will have six stories per book. Plus a collection introduction. And a cover for each story in each book. 108 stories total.
Tonight I already found the art for seven of the book covers. Getting a slight jump before October 1st.
I’ll talk about the writing half of my challenge and why in a few days. But I am really excited about these collections.
