558Frog Kiss Front
When we were first dating, Rebecca diligently read most of my stories. After she'd finished quite a few, she gave me a near-impossible challenge: “I want you to write a story that has a happy ending.” So I did. This was her Valentine's Day present—which we've just put up in a new e-story edition. A humorous fantasy tale. An evil wizard has turned the entire royal family into frogs and set them loose in the marshes, and only a kiss can restore them to their natural forms . . . but there are so many frogs, and so much swamp, who is willing to kiss them all? read it for only 99¢ KindleKoboNookAll other eBook formats [...]

Considering all of the trails that I have walked, sometimes it's easy to forget how important to tell people where you are going. That holds true for all the conventions and workshops I'm going to this year—places where you can track me down, talk with me, get a book signed. I will be on the road a lot all year, all over the country…even to Australia and Puerto Rico. In order to see the most fans possible, I will be appearing at a lot of large pop-culture shows, which have been very successful for us in the past year. Rebecca will be attending some of these with me, and others will feature some of my author friends. If you have not met up with us at an event, our “island of awesome authors” booth is quite an experience from all sides. This year, some of the authors joining me at the table will be Dan Wells, Jody Lynn Nye, Larry Correia, Peter Orullian, David Farland, Peter S. Beagle, Peter Wacks, Cat Rambo, and others still in the works. For me it is a wonderful chance to meet and interact with everyone from across the country. And Rebecca and I will be teaching [...]

A special announcement AND a sample to whet your literary appetite. Even though this hasn't exactly been a secret, with a few announcements coming out—and I talked about it extensively at this year's RushCon in Toronto—we've finally posted the first official press release about CLOCKWORK LIVES. Here is what ECW Press released today: Follow-up to the New York Times Bestseller CLOCKWORK ANGELS Set to Release in September from ECW CLOCKWORK LIVES Kevin J. Anderson and Neil Peart In the New York Times bestselling CLOCKWORK ANGELS, author Kevin J. Anderson and legendary Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart created a fabulous, adventurous world in a novel that accompanied the Rush concept album of the same name. Anderson and Peart have returned to their colorful creation in CLOCKWORK LIVES, a steampunk Canterbury Tales that explores the lives of secondary characters in CLOCKWORK ANGELS and introduces a new protagonist. Marinda Peake is a woman with a quiet, perfect life in a small village. Her alchemist father's will leaves Marinda a mysterious inheritance: a blank book that she must fill with other people's stories—and ultimately her own. Styled after Marinda's book, the ECW volume itself will be a beautiful homage to traditional bookmaking. A limited-run collector's [...]

Unicorns are magic, so how can a book about them not be magic in its own way? And if the unicorns are purple, it has to be even more special. This will show the wonderful possibilities that are now available to writers and publishers. This is a story about a joke comment, then a crazy idea, then a group of people who wanted to make that idea happen—and teamwork, the full support of a group of dedicated writers, an editor, an artist, and a publisher. And a little magic. And a scholarship. For more than a decade, Rebecca Moesta and I have given lectures and workshops on professionalism for the writer. One of the things we teach is that a writer must always deliver his or her best work. You are not allowed to “phone it in,” no matter what the assignment. Even if you get asked to do a story for, say, a silly anthology about purple unicorns—if you accept the assignment, you cannot blow it off. You have to do the best damned purple unicorn story you possibly can. We've given that talk more than a hundred times. Every once in a while, a writing student will come up to us jokingly [...]
