I had the chance to catch up with one of my favorite people anywhere, Mark Lefebvre. Former King of Kobo Writing Life now with the Draft2Digital publishing platform, beer aficionado, ghost chaser, horror novelist, and all around great person (oh, and he’s Canadian which means that he’s ridiculously polite–he even puts up with me).
Anyway, we just had a great talk on his Stark Reflections Podcast about authorship, goals, writing mottos, estate planning, and so much more. Yep, it’s mostly publishing side stuff, but with Mark it’s always fun!
Limited Time Bundle. Awesome resources for writers.
In addition to my own fabulous, plain-English guide to Estate Planning, I’m joined by a whole flock of exceptionally skilled authors sharing some of their best tips. It’s all here: Inspiration, Writing, Marketing, Motivation, Business and Estates–all in one neat pack. I’ve known most of these authors for years and am still humbled to be among them.
Miracles do happen. The Nara Reaction was just included in a limited-time bundle with some of the best SF authors working today.
If you were ever curious about my first real love story, this is it: The Nara Reaction. I started out to be a science fiction/fantasy writer. Then, shortly before I started this book, I read my first romance ever (actually my first couple dozen) because of chance (fate?) making my first-ever writing conference be Romance Writers of America National. I came away with a desperate desire to write romance.
Fair Warning: The Nara Reaction isn’t a romance. But it is SF/SRE (science fiction with strong romantic elements)–that’s industry speak for SF with a big love story down the center of it. It would take me another try before I wrote my first two romances which became: Where Dreams Are Bornand The Night is Mine.
But if you want to see how I got there, and read some fantasticSF along the way, grab this bundle before it goes away.
Estate Planning for Authors: Your Final Letter (and why you need to write it now)
Your will says who gets what.
Your Final Letter tells your heirs what to do with it once they’ve inherited it.
This is an essential guide to making sure that your legacy doesn’t die with you. Based on presentations to hundreds of authors (and the “Final Letter” that I wrote for my own family after a year of research). This book explains in clear, simple English (not publish-ese) how to best prepare your estate and your heirs for the best possible future.
