A New Novel For The Holiday Season

I guess I went a bit overboard preparing for this holiday season. First, I did the Holiday Spectacular. You can sample some of the stories here and here, and if you like what you read, you can still subscribe, and get 35 stories. You won’t get them in 35 days now, since the parade of stories started on Thanksgiving, but you’ll get the bulk daily, […]

Update For Fey Fans (With Some Bonus Diving)

I know, I know. I’ve been silent on the future of the Fey for a while, except to promise that, yes indeed, I plan to write about the third Place of Power. I had no real dates on that, and I don’t have exact dates now. What I do have is a writing schedule. I am finishing a big story arc in my Diving Universe. […]

Saving The World and Historical Mysteries, and A Plethora of Writing Tips

I love having an excuse to use the word “plethora.” And really, I need it here. I’ve been busy with the Business Master Class, then trying to catch up on a lot of work, not to mention a bit of exhaustion from the schedule. (Yes, you Writing With Chronic Illness readers, you know what I’m talking about.) So, with all of that, I’ve been remiss […]

Free Fiction Monday: The Hook

Urban legends draw inspiration from real events. Some people know that better than others. That story about the hook teenagers tell each other at parties? Turns out the story holds more truth than legend—just not in the way you’d expect. “The Hook” by New York Times bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch is free on this website for one week only. The story is also available in ebook here.  […]

Business Musings: Creating Content, Using Licenses, Making Something New (Rethinking The Writing Business Part 13)

A few months ago, I found myself in an odd situation. My attorney and I were trying to write a contract for something brand new, something we believe has never been done before. We were trying to find the right language to create contract that would cover everything we wanted to do—I wanted to do—on a brand-new project that would go live in November. The […]

The Second New Kristine Grayson Novel of 2019

Apparently 2019 is the year of Kristine Grayson. We rebranded all of the Grayson novels, published three omnibuses (omnibi?), and in June, published the first new Kristine Grayson full-length novel in years. I have published other Kristine Grayson novellas during those years, all in the Santa Series. (Yes, Santa’s real. Duh.) So, as I put together a big holiday project, I decided to write a […]

Special Project

The observant among you will notice that there’s a new Kickstarter on the right side of this web page. Yes, we just finished one Kickstarter and we started another immediately. That’s not the best way to run a Kickstarter, but we made a few decisions along the way that made us decide this is the way to go. First, “we” are me, Dean, and everyone […]

Killing The Angel of Death

My latest non-Diving novella appeared as part of a Storybundle a few weeks ago. Then you could only get a copy through the bundle (and a number of you decided to get that and nine other books. Thank you!). Now, Killing The Angel of Death is available as a standalone book—ebook and trade paper. The story concerns a group of grief-stricken survivors who have had […]
