WorldCon is now accepting registrations for the August 2016 event in Kansas City.  Supporting members can get all of the Hugo nominated works as ebooks and vote on the awards.


Cassie has 7 people with her forthcoming book on their Goodreads bookshelf.  She has signed up for her third event to promote the book, this one the Romance Rendezvous in Cedar Falls on April 9.

Dylan now has a quarter million words on his Fedran world wiki site.


Authors often want to have a series of books that share characters and settings.  However, new authors are advised to never try to sell a series until they have success with one book.  Still, a stand-alone book can leave hooks for a series without a too-obvious cliffhanger leading into a sequel.  Kurtis Scaletta offers advice on how to do this.  Karen Wiesner has more.
