Got Great Comments About My Question Last Night…

Plus a bunch of people wrote privately as well. Thank you everyone. Very much appreciated.

I got one question that came up in the online comments and that was the suggestion we do this on video online.

Answer: Simply, nope.

Never will happen I’m afraid.

There is a reason people call this a “show” and that would not come across at all in video. This is two very long-term, very experienced, professional writers and editors, in front of you talking and making publishing entertaining and fun while you learn.

Not at all sure where, in this modern world, you would get a chance to be with two writers like me and Kris for three days, having us put publishing and writing in perspective and you be able to talk with us and ask questions.

So I understand the desire to have this one online. Nope. Just as the craft workshops would not work as well online. We have taken over forty workshops and a bunch of lectures online. We know what works online, and what works in person. The intense small craft workshops, the Business Master Class, the Anthology workshop, and the Kris and Dean Show will only be in person and now in Las Vegas.

And nope, we won’t record any of them. Again, sorry.

So hope that clears that up. Stay tuned tomorrow for an announcement.


And speaking of Online Workshops…


Sunday the two May Insider’s Guide workshops started. The first live webinars for each will be this upcoming Sunday and they run for four weeks, with recorded videos and assignments every week and a webinar at the end of every week.

The webinars are basically me talking for an hour with you folks asking questions that I answer. It is live, but I am the only one on video. Everyone else is asking questions through a chat function.

These two are going to be great fun. And I am still laughing about the first assignment Kris came up with for the Writing Detective Fiction workshop.

— Insider’s Guide to Writing Serial Fiction (2,000 word parts of a novel) (Starts May 6th)
— Insider’s Guide to Writing Detective Fiction. (Starts May 6th)

$300 each, limited to ten writers plus lifetime subscribers. One time workshops. They will not be regular. Sorry.

(Lifetime Subscribers have access to them of course as well as all new courses going forward. And all workshops as well.)




These started last Tuesday and Wednesday, but still lots of time to jump in. Just starting the second week.

Sign up directly through Teachable or if you have a credit, write me directly to sign up. These workshops have just started. Still Time To Jump In!
