I love backing creative projects on Kickstarter and so when I saw they were bringing back (or attempting) to bring back Amazing Stories, I backed it, pronto. Amazing Stories is a Science Fiction publication that goes way back. I love that it will be around a while longer. HERE is a link to the campaign on Kickstarter. HERE is a link to their website. You can sign up for free. Yay! Chalk one up for the creators at Amazing Stories! I can’t wait to receive my publications starting in August. Amazing Stories is an institution. It is an icon of the field. Over the years it has represented both the best and the worst that this genre has to offer. It has inspired the careers of authors, artists, editors, academics, scientists and engineers. Its presence proved that there was a viable market for this kind of literature, a fact not lost

I have the pleasure of working with David Farland when he teaches at Superstars Writing Seminar. He’s an amazing instructor. Note- I am on staff at Superstars, not faculty. I hope to be teaching about writing someday, but I do not do it yet. (Yet!) I will be attending David’s class on Writing Enchanting Prose. This will be my first one. I have a friend who has attended several and she convinced me to go to one with her. So, off we go to Dallas to meet David and eight other students in March. I’m really excited to go. I hear David’s workshops are not quite like taking a vacation. Writing well is very rewarding, but tough. Writing, editing, revising, rewriting, and making changes per your editor can be a challenge. And then there’s publishing, but I won’t get started there. David’s class is apparently a good challenge with the

The Witcher Chime Genre: Horror   A deadly, possessive entity imprints on members of Savannah Caleman’s family, making her the latest object of obsession in this chilling, historical tale of haunted legacy and terror. Savannah Caleman’s family has been coming apart since the early 1920’s.

The faculty and guest instructors are leaders in the industry and best selling authors. There is an add-on day for craft skills that precedes the business seminar. If you have any questions, please email me at marie@amitygreen.ink. I know a guy. 😉 I’ve been attending this seminar for four years now. It changed the way I produce books, handle publication contracts, stick to my branding, and cherish the opportunity to network. And that’s a nice segue to talk about Tribe. I’ve heard other groups toss the word around before, and really, it wasn’t used in the right capacity then. If I could use only one word to describe Superstars Writing Seminar, it’s TRIBE.  #SuperstarsWriting There are scholarships available, too. The call for
