Starter Kit

I’m in the middle of teaching my first in-person class! It’s fun…but I’m horribly distracted. We just started a Kickstarter today, which was delayed by the Kickstarter process. (They’re slower than usual.) So this is a quick post between sessions to let you know that this Kickstarter is… …A Starter Kit for anyone who wants to read my work or sample new series.

Business Musings: The Final Brandon Sanderson Post

Well, Brandon Sanderson’s Kickstarter is one for the record books. It became the highest grossing Kickstarter about a month before his Kickstarter closed. And then it continued to make money, finally ending at $41.7 million. Brandon himself estimates that when this is all said and done, and every one of 185,341 backers have received their books and swag, he will get roughly a high-end novel […]

The First Fey Book in 20 Years!

The excess words are becoming books as we speak, but the novella is done! You can get your copy here. Thanks to all the readers who supported the Kickstarter and the fans who’ve let me know that they […]

Crimes Collide

Over the past few years, Dean and I have had a blast participating in Kickstarter’s Make 100 Project every January. Two years ago, we did Year of the Cat (which introduced the boys at Promotion Central. (See above) Then, last year, we did Colliding Worlds, 100 of our science fiction short stories. The reception was amazing. So this year, we decided to do it again, […]
