The Kris and Dean Show

Three straight days of Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch going through the entire publishing industry and how you navigate it in 2018. It is entertaining and where else will you get two New York Times bestsellers talking about the industry for three straight days, making sense of it for you and how to go forward.

Plus people tell us it is amazingly entertaining, which is why it got the nickname “Show.”

Open to writers of all levels and trust me, it won’t matter if you have fifty novels out or just getting started, you will learn more than you can imagine from these three days.

Cost is $500. We are limited to 80 people, but we are not calling that a limit, so basically unlimited. We expect about the same number as the Master Business Class.
