Being a mom seems to come with the need for a lot of lectures. I mean, I’m responsible for creating a fully functioning (and hopefully successfully contributing) member of society. And call me crazy, but I’d like her to be a decent, responsible member of said society.
So, I spend a lot of time explaining how things work, how to behave, etc. For example, the other day I had to explain what “blackmailing” is and why we don’t do that to our friends (or anyone, really, if we want to stay out of jail). I also explained that we can’t be blackmailed if we don’t do things we shouldn’t and then lie about it. Sigh. So many lessons, so little time.
That said, she’s a great kid. I just like to get ahead of potentially damaging future behavior.
But lectures aren’t always a mom thing. And sometimes, we even volunteer to listen to them.
In fact, right now, you can elect to get lectured a lot…and for a great price.
Here are the details from bestselling author Dean Wesley Smith’s website:
NEW SPECIAL LECTURE SERIES STARTED
I will record six new lectures in May and through June. One new lecture per week in this special series will be added. Each lecture will consist of between 9 and 15 videos.
These are Advanced, Advanced lectures, taking up where the Business Workshop leaves off. The intent of these is to let writers know this stuff even exists when the time comes.
Special Lecture Series is called ADVANCED BUSINESS FOR FICTION WRITERS
— 1…Corporations for Writers…$50.00
— 2…Taxes for Writers…$50.00
— 3…Movies and Television Negotiations for Writers…$50.00
— 4…Estates and Estate Planning for Writers…$50.00
— 5…Copyright and Control for Writers…$50.00
— 6…IP Valuation Dangers and Possibilities for Writers…$50.00
SPECIAL PRICE FOR A SHORT TIME ONLY!!
For a week or so only, you can get all six new lectures for $250 subscription or 12 lectures in total for a $400 subscription. (You can bank the extra ones or take any existing lecture.)
All the details and planned new lectures after the business lectures are listed in the post two days ago or under the lecture tab. More detailed descriptions added as the recording starts for each one.
If you want the subscriptions, write Dean Wesley Smith directly at dean at deanwesleysmith dot com with lectures in the subject line. Very short-term offer. After that you can just get them on Teachable for their regular price.
All the available lectures are on http://wmg-publishing-workshops-and-lectures.teachable.com.
But that’s not the only new learning opportunity that is available for a limited time. The next one involves me and my cover design skills. And it’s a workshop instead of a lecture. I will design a cover and help brand a series for a limited number of writers. You can find out more details, including whether there are any slots left (we expect this to sell out fast) on Dean’s website by clicking here.
So, there you have it. If you’re a writer, now’s your chance to get lots of lectures for a great value and an opportunity to get my direct help designing your series book covers. This is not something I do often (in fact, never is the more appropriate word), but I wanted to offer something special this spring, so if you’re interested, sign up now. I probably won’t be able to do this again for a very long time—maybe never.
