#1 -- I have to apologize to our pal Darlene Ryan, the links to her LB&LI workshops were not coded correctly and thus did not work (and I think this is the second time I've done this to Darlene, so she has every right to kick my butt for it.) I'm going to backtrack and correct all the links, but if you bookmarked the nonfuctioning ones I posted, please changer them to the correct links, which are:
Editing 101 by Darlene Ryan -- how to tackle re-writes without getting stuck.
Getting Started—Keeping Going by Darlene Ryan -- Finding the time and the words to start writing and keep on writing.
Darlene, I'm sorry I messed that up.
#2 -- LJ Cohen has uploaded her Poetry: Tools for the Novelist workshops in e-book format to Scribd*; you can check it out here.
#3 -- Charlene Teglia has done the same with her The Business of the Business workshops; now available as an e-book on Scribd* here.
# 4 -- The e-book version of my LB&LI workshops is also now available on Scribd.* The Scribd link for the World-building workshops companion e-book, It Only Took God Six Days is presently this, but we're going to take it down today and try to reload the e-book again to try to get rid of the cover art problem. In the meantime, I will keep the mirror link here up (this one is in .pdf format only for download but does not have the weird white line problem.)
#5 -- Finally, I promised that I would let you all know when the negotiations were finished, and they are. So, sold to NAL: two new novels set in the Darkyn universe but featuring a new cast and storyline. We haven't finalized many details such as the titles and so forth, but I will tell you that two of the characters in the first book will be Lucan and Samantha from Dark Need, Midnight Blues and the Juliana trilogy.
*Note 9/3/10: Since Scribd.com instituted an access fee scam to charge people for downloading e-books, including those I have provided for free for the last ten years, I have removed my free library from their site, and no longer use or recommend using their service. My free reads may be read online or downloaded for free from Google Docs; go to my freebies and free reads page for the links. See my post about this scam here.
