Fun Video

Fun Video

Kris is doing some really fun videos to show all the varied Fiction River volumes and some of the authors. I will put a few up here over the next few weeks to keep the attention on Fiction River and our subscription drive, which is doing fantastic. Thanks, everyone!!

And if you haven’t watched the video on the Kickstarter page, do so to see how Kris and I have aged over the last four years. (grin)

Less Than One Week

September workshops start in less than one week. And there is still room in all of them including the new Speed workshop.

I mailed out letters to everyone signed up for the September workshops, so if you think you are signed up and didn’t get a letter from me, write me..

And still lots and lots of room in all the workshops.
