The First DOWN IN THE DETAILS Classes Are Up…

First in Fantasy… First in Science Fiction…

The first mystery class will be loaded tomorrow. Then each week one more class will be filled. But right now the first class in fantasy about Magic Shops and the first class in science fiction about writing sf invasion stories are both loaded and ready to go.

The brand new series is called DOWN IN THE DETAILS series and it has eight fantasy classes, eight mystery classes, and eight science fiction classes.

There is no deadline to take the classes or to turn in a story. Just one story per class per author, but no deadlines at all. If we fill one of the anthologies, we will just announce another one with a new title to takes its place in that genre. So again, no deadline to take them or turn in a story. Totally up to you.

Honestly, we hope this will be a really fun on-going series.

As I said, the story assignments that go along with all 24 classes will be considered for inclusion in three really fun original anthology collections published by WMG Publishing Inc and edited by me. Here are the three covers for the first group of anthologies.









The first science fiction class has also been sent to all the backers of the Diving Novel Kickstarter in March as the 2nd stretch reward workshop. All the first five in science fiction will be sent to the backers over the next four weeks.

    Hi Dean,

    those down in the details covers are super fun to look at.

    Question: Will there be more pop up classes in the future, or will the down into the details classes replace them?

    Hey Dean, how long will the half off sale last? I’m passing along the info to a couple of friends. Thanks for doing it! Rebecca

      It lasts as long as the Grand Opening Sale of the Pulphouse store which is ten days, so it will end late on Sunday night, a week from today.
