WD Conference

I’ll be joining other pros such as:

  • Michael Sullivan

  • Pip Ballantine
  • Philip Athans

We’ll be talking about everything from worldbuilding to three-dimensional characters to publishing options.  Even better, you’ll receive a critique (with written feedback) of your query letter from an agent with experience in the science fiction and fantasy genres.


What I’ll Be Teaching: Top 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction

I’ll be teaching an hour-long session (complete with Q&A) this Saturday, June 25th, at 3PM EDT. I’ll be addressing the Top 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Think beyond clichés to find truly original ideas—and then how to make sure you’re taking full advantage of all the epic opportunities within your high-concept premise.
  • Create imaginative and exciting worlds that support your ultimate goal of strong plot and character, rather than getting in their way.
  • Structure your sprawling epics to create powerful and resonate pacing and flow.
  • Select the right number of POVs for your story and then manage them responsibly to create cohesion and foreshadowing.
  • Choose the right endings for books within a series and use them to hook readers into the next book without frustrating or disappointing them.
