Writing Resources


I’ve been working on Lazy Designer Book 4 and finished the rough draft of it today (it was mostly done earlier in the year, except for the sections on worldbuilding). I have also continued with some editing chores on other projects. So, as usual, lots of work but nothing much I can show you yet.

I do have some stories out soon (or already out). As a reminder the anthology of superhero stories I have a story in, Oomph, will be released soon and my story “Slaying Dragons” is in the first year “best of” anthology from Plasma Frequency (in case you want to check out some of my fiction offerings).

I’m also playing around with ideas on allowing direct purchases from my site for my non-fiction. As an experiment towards this, I’ve enabled my story ‘Digital Rights’ to be sold through this new system. Let me know if you see any problems with it. Down the road (i.e., probably not until 2014), I’ll start releasing the Lazy Designer books this way, but with some additional content. I may or may not have some interesting news regarding the Lazy Designer series at that time too (a hint: the prices on all this work will probably be increasing, but will be offset by extra goodies). For those interested, I’ve setup a subdomain for these books at lazydesigner.brentknowles.com.

    I think you should take all the stories you wrote for various magazines and make a collection of them in a single book. I’d buy that in a heartbeat.

    Nice to see you are keeping with the Lazy Designer books considering you have so many projects going around at once. I’ve been out of the “loop” for a while but is this one going to be the last one in the series?

    Well, that’s all for now. Enjoy the upcoming weekend.

    Nice to hear from you.

    The collection is definitely something I’ll do in the future. I’m going to wait for a few more of my published stories to have the rights revert back to me (generally stories have 3-12 months of exclusivity).

    There are two Lazy Designer books remaining (for a total of 5). I’d like to get them finished as soon as possible. Just debating whether to put some other projects on the back burner and get these finished.

    Enjoy your weekend too.

    Take care

    – Brent
