    Launching A Brand In a Few Hours

    I’m Really Excited About This Brand Launching! Bryant Street Kickstarter. Launching Noon Tuesday! Bryant Street… where The Twilight Zone lives. A really twisted, but normal-looking subdivision street. 40 stories in four books. The seasons of Bryant Street, basically. Or four seasons of a Bryant Street television series, 10 episodes per season. I have been writing and selling and publishing Bryant Street stories since the mid-1980s. It has always been a brand I paid attention to, but really never pushed it. I did have my writer corporation for about 20 years named Bryant Street. And the trademark of Bryant Street is very solid for a number of reasons. So for years…

    HEARTS COLLIDE Kickstarter is Live!!

    100 Strange Romance Short Stories… Half from Kris, half from Dean. These are all genres, but all have the underlying theme of romance in one form or another. All are strange, as is typical of Dean and Kris’s writing. Plus you can get previous year’s anthologies or all 420 stories if you want. Plus a ton of other reading and two very special workshops for writers. HEARTS COLLIDE Make 100 Kickstarter. Check it out. (ADDED NOTE… We funded in just over an hour and as I type this are well on the way to the first stretch goal.) Watch the video of me and Kris. (might have to click twice…

    Second Special Stretch Goal!

    Kris Is Having Fun!! The NEVER BEFORE SEEN kickstarter is about six unpublished Kristine Kathryn Rusch mystery stories. All backers at any level get all six, even if you take the nifty workshop. And she added a really fun special stretch goal if the campaign hit 120 backers by Sunday, which it did. So all backers are now getting not only the six original stories, plus two stretch goal collections of her mystery stories, plus the special edition of “The Wedding Ring” with the published version and the original version in it. Now Kris added another special stretch goal. If the campaign gets to 140 backers by late Tuesday, every…

    One Day Left!

    WMG Holiday Spectacular Kickstarter 2023… The WMG Holiday Spectacular 2023 campaign funded in 45 minutes, hit the first stretch goal in under 24 hours, and was given by Kickstarter a PROJECT WE LOVE designation that is really hard to get. Now it just went past its fifth stretch goal, plus we added a special stretch goal which it hit. If you have been studying Kickstarters, go take a look at how we did the Story in this one. I think it looks really nifty. And fits the Holiday Spectacular perfectly!! And how cool is all the holiday merchandise??? Since there are three books, with three beautiful holiday covers, we licensed…

    The Challenges of Day Two…

    I’m Learning… I’ve got no energy until I suddenly do. And then it only lasts for a very short burst. So, managed to get one thing recorded last night, hope to work on a couple more tonight. Please bear with me. I will be late on some workshops. And late getting responses back to homework. Also, I am working hard on some really cool stuff that predates this accident. One of which I will announce tomorrow because the WMG staff has helped me get it together. This is something we’ve been talking about for a long time. Some of you will be excited. I am very pleased with how well…

    First Full Day…

    Beat Way To Describe It… Ouch! Not taking any opioids, so pain managed by regular stuff, and managed is a little euphemistic to say the least. I am in a big brace that Ron Collins came up, and helped me and Kris figure out how to get me in an out of the brace and a garbage bag over my huge bandage so I could shower. THANK YOU RON!!!!! Excited about how well the new special stretch reward on the Kickstarter is doing. We’re trying to get to 160 backers by Sunday evening. Take a look and please pass the word. Really appreciate that. Thank you, everyone, for all the…

    Why Kickstarter Class Is Free to Writers…

    Started in October 2019… Master Business Class was happening and Loren L. Coleman and I were sitting on the suite’s balcony looking out over Las Vegas with about fifteen other writers in a large circle just talking publishing business. And then Loren asked if anyone had done a Kickstarter for a book. Loren knew I had done more than ten and he had done a number for his gaming company and a book. One writer raised their hand and said, “I did one, only made five thousand, so haven’t done another yet.” I think I rolled out of my chair onto the ground and Loren almost tipped over backwards. “Only…

    Update!

    And Thanks For the Feedback… I will give the new look a bunch more thought and maybe test something else down the road. But tonight I wanted to remind you of the Special Stretch Goal. If the campaign can reach 125 backers on CASE CARD KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN by Sunday Midnight, April 23rd, we will add in a special stretch goal. (We are at 116 backers as I type this on Friday night, so only nine more backers to go.) If the campaign reaches 125 backers by Sunday Midnight, April 23rd, every backer of any reward at $5 and up will get a free ebook copy of my mystery collection THE…
