It's that time of year to feast on great spooky stories—and Halloween means FUN as well as SCARY. So, a batch of Urban Fantasy novels is just the ticket. I'm curating a new Urban Fantasy bundle for storybundle.com, a remarkable collection of ten terrific novels by bestselling, legendary authors and rising stars. As always, at storybundle, you name your own price—whatever you feel the books are worth, and a portion of the proceeds goes to charity (in this case, the Challenger Centers for Space Science Education, Mighty Writers, and Girls Write Now). The Urban Fantasy bundle contains my original Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. collection WORKING STIFF, seven cases featuring everybody's favorite dead detective—a special sneak preview, because the book itself will not be released until January! And the bundle includes a new Harry Dresden book by Jim Butcher—WORKING FOR BIGFOOT, all three of Harry Dresden's Bigfoot cases, never before collected. This book is not available anywhere else. AND, Vicki Pettersson presents an original, never-released work THE REORDERING, which is not available elsewhere. AND AND Carole Nelson Douglas put together a brand new collection of her popular Delilah Street Urban Fantasy stories, just for this bundle. Other New York Times bestselling authors [...]

It's been a fun two days, from loud music and crowds to utter silence and mountain beauty—and I loved both. On Tuesday, thanks to the efforts of our friends David Boop and Peter J. Wacks, we got tickets and backstage passes to see the Dandy Warhols in the legendary Bluebird Theater on Colfax Ave in Denver. The Dandy Warhols had been on the edge of my musical radar, but we were happy to see the concert; I spent the afternoon listening to a lot of their YouTube tracks, getting familiar with the music. As a point of connection, Peter and David had written a Veronica Mars novel, FAST TIMES AT NEPTUNE HIGH, which WordFire Press published through Kindle Worlds—and the Dandy Warhols did the VERONICA MARS TV theme music. We enjoyed the concert and afterward we all went back to chat with the band members (in a veritable dungeon beneath the Bluebird!) Lead singer Courtney Taylor-Taylor and keyboardist Zia McCabe were both fans of our books, both big readers. Courtney Taylor-Taylor tries to enjoy PAUL OF DUNE in the dungeon Peter J. Wacks with Zia McCabe and Courtney Taylor-Taylor And David Boop with Zia and Courtney Rebecca and I got home [...]

Over the past twenty years, Rebecca Moesta and I have given our workshop ”Things I Wish Some Pro Had Told Me When I Was Starting out” to thousands of writing students. In preparation for Nanowrimo next month, and also for the upcoming Superstars Writing Seminar in February, we put all that knowledge down on paper, including a lot of new sections that we never have time to cover in person. This book won't teach you how to write—it will teach you how to be a professional writer. The print version will be released next week. Available now in all eBook formats for $6.99 Kindle Kobo Nook All other formats If you want to be treated as a professional writer, you need to act like a professional. Take yourself and your career seriously. Behave in a way that you would expect a professional to behave. When you see a doctor, lawyer, banker, or business executive, you expect certain standards—that they are mature, reliable people you'd want to do business with. You've probably seen writers portrayed on TV or film as eccentric, ditzy, pompous, or curmudgeonly, as if that's the norm for a writer. They shrug. “Eh, creative people. What can you do?” You can be [...]
