Recommended Reading List: November, 2019

This month vanished almost instantly. Busy almost every night from the beginning of the month to the 15th, which cut into my reading time dramatically. But things slowed mid-month so I was able to read many good things. If you want to see the kinds of things that can eat into my leisure reading time, then look no farther than the Winter Holiday Spectacular, which […]

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, […]

I am always a month behind in reporting what I read. So I wanted you to find the great stories that I’ve enjoyed over the years. I love holiday stories of all kinds. I save up the stories to […]

The Gift of Stories

35 stories in 35 days! The gift that keeps on giving, whether you get it for yourself, your best reading buddy, or both of you to share over the holiday season. Years ago, I wondered what it would take to give a holiday story per day to readers. After all, in the holiday season, animated calendars give everything from music to games to those who […]

Last Day For Big Deals And Fun Stuff!

As I write this, you have 24 hours to get backer rewards on our Holiday Spectacular Kickstarter. We have more core backers on this project—people who love the project—than we get on most of our Kickstarters, and that has me happy. This Kickstarter project is a baby of mine. I’ve wanted to give away a lot of stories during the winter holiday season for almost […]

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 […]
