New Bundle!!

There is a fantastic fantasy bundle just starting. It’s called The Epic Fantasy Bundle. Kris has a full novel in it called Heart Readers and it also has novels by Allen Drury, Brandon Sanderson and Tracy Hickman, among others.

And it has Fiction River: Unnatural Worlds in it. Kris and I edited this one and it’s a great one. And since we are doing a , this bundle would be a great way to get a copy of Fiction River, take a look to see if you like it, and then get a discount on a subscription through the subscription drive.

    You have helpful points here. The debilitating feeling that I am not as good a writer as the next person is restricting on so many levels. One of which is not writing in my blog. I feel that I have nothing good enough to say, I might make embarrassing mistakes…Reading your post allows me to face my fears, and maybe even write more in my blog.
