Workshop Sale and Humble Bundle Reminder

Or something like that. ? Anyway, here’s your reminder: The August Workshop Sale is underway. Go to Teachable, pick what you want, and then put in the code AugustRegularSale. Dean […]

Lookie This!

The new covers for the rebranding of the original Fey series continue to surprise and please me. This cover is for The Fey: Changeling, the second book of the Fey. We’re rebranding the entire series in preparation for the release of the first book in the Qavnerian Protectorate Saga, The Kirilli Matter. That book will appear in February, but you’ll all be able to get […]

Workshop Sales

Just a short notification post that we (as in WMG) changed our minds on workshop sales. Actually, it was Allyson Longueira who made the observation that led to the change. She mentioned that people who are good shoppers (like her) save up for regular sales. Heh, who knew? I shop when I’m out of something or forced to or feel that I need something. I […]

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 […]

Business Musings: More Splits: Indie Publishing (Year in Review 6)

For years now, I have expected indie publishing to split into two different parts. In fact, for nearly a decade, indie publishing has split into two different parts. What I didn’t foresee were the other splits that occurred this year. For the record, what I’m calling indie publishing is what most people call self publishing. Neither term is accurate. Self-publishing is too limiting, because a […]

Workshops! Sales! More!

I’m trying to do too many things in the space between semesters. I’m actually getting a lot done, but I’m being woefully bad at promoting everything. I’ve been relying on the cats at Promotion Central on Facebook, which really isn’t the best way to promote, because I’m neglecting all of you. Still, I’m adding the cats here, just to give them some equal time. This […]

Business Musings: International Growth (Jumping The Digital Divide Part 4)

Trying to wrap my brain around the possibilities for growth in the digital sphere hurts. Seriously. Because the markets are so big and the opportunities so vast that I’m not capable of grasping it all. For a long time, the digital divide wasn’t just generational. It was also location-based. When the Kindle came into being and reader after reader discovered ebooks, the early focus was […]

An Amazing Achievement

Our small publishing company pulled off the impossible so far in 2021. Through July, they have published 91 books. (With 50 or so scheduled for the second half of the year.) This is a wonderful achievement. All of the books are well designed and properly promoted. Allyson Longueira and her small team accomplished that on the one-day-at-a-time model. I’m so impressed with them. And that […]
