Challenge,  On Writing,  publishing,  workshops

Not Many Signed Up


As is normal for August, very few people are signed up for the online workshops. They start on Tuesday and I think the list of workshops is a pretty good one, honestly. But summer seems to not allow people to spend the extra three hours a week or focus on the workshops.

But that is normal. I see it every year. August is when a lot of writers wake up from the time of great forgetting to discover they have done little in the summer and are not behind on goals. If that is happening to you, just take a deep breath and reset the goals for the rest of the year.

However, that said, a number of people took the challenge for the short stories (which I am still reading) and did great this summer. And a number of people are taking the novel challenge as well and doing great, writing and finishing books all summer long. Really fun to read those as well.

So not everyone dropped into the great forgetting. I sure didn’t with four novels in July and I hope to do another two here in August once I get back on top of a few things and get some business cleared.

So anyway, at the moment we have offered 12 online workshops in August. And the schedule is set for the rest of the year. When I get the challenge reading done I will spend a little time going over the curriculum of workshops and updating it.

Any questions at all, feel free to write me. And if you are confused as to which workshop to take first, we have a full curriculum posted on its own page.

This fall major business workshop was full, but as normal, when I started the email group this last week, a number of people had to drop out. Some for business reasons, some for health.

So that leaves THREE spots open in the Master Business class for October 21st -28th. All top level business focused on indie publishing only. Write me if you are interested with what you are doing with your writing and where you want to go. The coast workshops are invite only.



Just a few days left. Don’t miss this one!! has done something special. It has put together a group of bundles in a bundle. And kept the price at normal levels. And this bundle of bundles is about to expire.

My first three Thunder Mountain novels are just one of the bundles.

And you’ll also get some other amazing books. Including a bundle of three different Fiction River fantasy volumes. If you haven’t sampled the amazing work and writers in Fiction River, this would be a good place to do it. That alone is worth the entire cost considering there are close to 50 short stories by different writers in that bundle alone.

You also get three books in Kris’s diving series if you haven’t tried those yet, some of the best science fiction written these days.)

Also, don’t forget to toss in some money for one of Kris and my favorite things, They do stunningly good work and are worth supporting.
