Newsletter & More

Subscribe to Fiction University and receive:

The newsletter for tips, tricks, and advice about writing, being an author, and the crazy world of publishing.

Throughout the year, I'll share advice and tips for writers at every level. You'll get:
  • Articles to help you improve your writing
  • Tips on marketing and promotion
  • Advice on managing the writing life
  • News on events, appearances, and new releases from me
  • Random chances to win a 5-page critique from me
  • Heads Up notices of writing-related deals, events, and programs 

Heads Up emails with offers on great deals.

Two or three times a year I'll send a short (no longer than a week, tops) flurry of emails about writing tools or courses I think might interest and benefit you. I'm an affiliate for Infostack, which offers a terrific writers' bundle every year, as well as the occasional summit or webinar. But I promise not to pester you outside these few times a year (and never with something not writing related you wouldn't care about).

Advance notice of my workshops and online classes. 

I present as conferences and events all over country, as well as do online workshops (and there's big news about this coming this year).

As a big “thank you!” for signing up, you’ll also receive my book, 25 Ways to Strengthen Your Writing Right Now (PDF format).
