    Special Workshop Links Sent Out

    Special Workshops from the Kickstarter… Everyone signed up for those two special workshops should have a letter from me with the links and codes to get into them. First sessions start Tuesday and second sessions of both start July 5th. If you thought you signed up for a workshop through Kickstarter, and didn’t get a letter from me tonight, then check your spam filter. The letter has links that will often send it to spam. Then if not there, make sure you are checking the email you used on Kickstarter. If still can’t find it, write me and I’ll send it again. Everyone, remember there is a half-price sale going…

    Only 4 Days Left!!

    Time Is Flashing Past for the Kickstarter… Amazing there is only four days left. And we are about to hit the 5th Stretch Goal, so backers not only get the 10-Book starter kit, but also more books and four of the new Interview Classes where I spend a number of videos in each class talking with Kris about her series, the origin, the problems, the fun, the characters, and the writing. Those should be great fun!! Check out the campaign at Kristine Kathryn Rusch STARTER KIT. Also remember that in four days, the two workshops, CREATING LARGER THAN LIFE CHARACTERS and WRITING IN NUMBERS OF GENRES will both no longer…

    Main Caper Workshop Over…

    Novella Caper Workshop Starting Up… You had to have taken the study along caper or been here in Vegas at the regular caper workshop to take the novella one.

WMG Publishing will have a suite in the Luxor that will be a meeting place for writers every night starting Monday night ahead of the expo. I will be putting out information on the suite on the Master Business Class in the next few days…

    USING THE FLASH SALE…

    … To Keep Focused Over the Next Few Months… We are in the Time of Great Forgetting, where writers with the best of intentions and the firmest of deadlines just sort of find days and weeks and months going by with little getting done with the writing and publishing. The time lasts from the middle of April until August 1st. (Why do you think so many major movies come out during these months?) This is a time to play for the population, to garden, to travel, and especially after the last two years, we all want to get out and do anything. So Kris and I figured that a very…

    Fun New Stuff…

    Next Kickstarter Campaign Will Have 10 Stretch Goals… They will have a new form of video event that will be amazing fun, a different one in each stretch reward. I will explain those as we get closer to firing up the campaign. Everyone at WMG is excited about them and no, they are not pop-ups. (Pop-Up stretch awards from the Seeders campaign should go out by Friday. I will announce it here and in an update. But starting on Monday, as a form of inflation-busting help, we are starting something new on Teachable: RECOMMENDED CLASSES OF THE WEEK. Basically a Bundle of Recommended Classes for that week. Each bundle will…

    Media Kit Workshop

    Changing Some Workshop Stuff… Going to finally climb off the two-month rotation of workshops and offer every regular workshop every month. Just going to be so much easier, but going to take me a little time to get June workshops, the first month for that, loaded up. Also the two special workshops, Ideas and Time in Space from the last Kickstarter campaign start their last sessions on May 3rd. Everyone got the links and codes for those a month ago. As far as the Focused Study stuff, we are still doing that for anything you think you might need help with. We will tell you if it is the right…

    Secrets Going Classic

    Secrets of Craft Workshop…. Going to classic. That’s right, we only offerer it once, but the class turned out to not be what Kris and I were hoping, so in this next week I will move it to Classic status, as well as a couple others I have been meaning to do. So before the sale is over, there will be new Classic Workshops. Stay Tuned! Remember, if you want to get anything on Teachable at half price, including the new Lifetime Subscription to All Pop-Ups, just find the class and hit Purchase and then put in the code SpringSale and hit apply and you will get the class for…

    Why All The Stretch Rewards?

    Why Give So Much Away? Got that question a lot this time, more than any other campaign we have done, although I must admit, that question is pretty normal for our campaigns. If a person does a $5 pledge to get an early copy of RESCUE TWO in electronic form, as I write this they get ten more books and nine workshops worth $1,350.00. But that is about to jump one more goal to eleven books and ten workshops. Why do this? Why give so much away? Two major reasons, actually. First, this is a campaign for my new Seeders novel RESCUE TWO. It stands alone, but gives a good…
