Had a Blast…
Spent from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the store, mostly talking with people and buying comics from people bringing them through the door. Great fun.
Then off to dinner for a birthday of a friend, then back to the office to work on workshops. Then home to keep working on stuff here, including putting the final table of contents together for Issue #1 of Pulphouse Fiction Magazine. Paper copies of Issue #0 should be shipping as soon as they get here.
I am very proud of how the magazine is shaping up. Great fun for me, and I hope the reading is fun as well.
And yes, we still have a few spots open. Write me if interested. Still four of the ten spots open.
This is not a workshop. This is an individual promotion package WMG will put together. Nothing close to a workshop type thing and it will never be repeated.

Fantastic Christmas Bundle
I am very, very proud of this new Christmas Cheer bundle with Storybundle that I curated. I have read every story and novel in the bundle and they are great. Call it my recommended reading for Christmas this year.
You can get it at www.storybundle.com/christmas
Short Story and Novel Challenge
I am only taking five on each challenge starting on January 1st. So don’t miss on this one if you want a great challenge to start off your new year. Details are a few posts back.
But basically 30 stories in sixty days or three novels in three months. You sign up, when you are done, you get two regular workshop credits. (And with me reading your work I’ll be able to tell you which workshops will help you the most.)
Cost is $600 (same price as two workshops, so I read for free). Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in jumping in. I will shut it off at five per challenge.
This will really get your resolution to produce more off the ground in January. And yes, here there are spots open in both challenges.
December Regular Workshops Started Up
Still time to sign up.
Those of you with credits from either the Kickstarter or the certificate special we just offered, you must write me to sign up.
Those who would just like to sign up directly can do so on Teachable at any point. December workshops are there and started. I will have the January workshops posted in a few days.
Nice to have some options on signing up finally.
