First the guest post. I learned about Clarion Foundation when I read Orson Scott Card’s How to write science-fiction and fantasy (a book I highly recommend to all genre writers). I bought it in London a few years ago (when there was still a Borders on Charing Cross Road…) and have seriously considered attending their workshops. Alas, I have a Day Job and taking six weeks off is not something I can afford at the moment.
When I discovered their blog, I started following it, and linking to it from time to time. Eventually the wonderful Lynda Williams contacted me and asked me to write a guest post… I couldn’t believe my eyes when I got the e-mail, and of course you don’t send the first thing that comes to mind when you receive such a request… I had to work on it a little, but now you can read the results! Thanks again for the opportunity!
AND I also managed to upload Fire to Smashwords and Kindle (not live at the time of the post, but will be in a day or so). I will need a little more time for the printed version, but I should be able to have it live by the end of the month… In the meantime, you can check the trailer:
A special thanks to Marilyn, Fulvio and Martin for helping me with tightening it (it was 3minutes long! ;-)). Maybe next weekend I’ll do a special offer on the novel… and of course you’ll be able to read six sentences from it on Sunday, so stay tuned!
Oh, and I’m even listed on the brand new and improved Six Sentence Sunday site… great job, Sara Brooks! Yay!
And if you’re in the Washington DC area, don’t miss this panel on protecting creativity which features also Rights Paladin Colleen Doran…
