One week from today the third Superstars Writing Seminar launches at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas. Here is the detailed schedule for the lectures. We hope to see you there!
Last weekend, Rebecca and I flew to Hollywood for the Writers of the Future workshop and awards. We spent a lot of time talking with the prize-winning writers and artists, and gave a full two-hour workshop on professionalism and managing a writing career.
With the eBook and print release of Frank Herbert’s never-before-published SF novel, HIGH-OPP, we wanted to give you a sneak preview. Read the complete first chapter below.
We are proud to publish the eBook and print version of Frank Herbert’s never-released dystopian SF novel HIGH-OPP. The eBook is available in all electronic formats for $4.99; the print version is in trade paperback for $14.99.
Orbit Books just sent me the cover for the paperback of the grand finale of the Terra Incognita trilogy, THE KEY TO CREATION. Another gorgeous design to fill out the paperback set. The novel will be released in June. I hope you have a chance to read the entire trilogy; I think it’s some of my best, most ambitious work.
This coming December, Rebecca and I will be guest instructors at a new writing seminar aboard a Caribbean cruise ship. For four days, sail around the Bahamas while attending intensive business-oriented lectures about a career in writing.
In addition to us, ”Sail to Success” is taught by agent Eleanor Wood, Toni Weisskopf (Baen Books), and authors Mike Resnick, Nancy Kress, Paul Cook, and Jack Skillingstead, Treat yourself, and learn the business as well. Space is limited.
If anybody is in the LA area and wants to attend this year’s Writers of the Future Ceremony, it is open to the public and free. All you have to do is RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Sunday April 15 at the Wilshire and Bell Theater (corner of Wilshire and Lucerne). Many of the judges and past winners will be there; cool performances, and you get a chance to hang out with a lot of other authors.
Yesterday I hit 50, and had a terrific (and exhausting) day. Even more surprisingly, I actually took the day off from writing!
Tallying up some numbers (time for a retrospective, I suppose): I’ve published 113 books, so that averages out to 2.3 novels per year from the time I was born (although the first few years weren’t very productive).
