    THE BRAINSTORM (Early bird rate!)— Greg and Brad will sit down with you in a 40-minute Google hangout and talk about your novel and help you to brainstorm whatever you like. Want to chat about the plot? Great! Characters not working? We can help there too! We can also talk about whatever else you'd like, such as the business side of publishing, agents and editors, critique groups, and more. You get to decide whether you want to make the video public once it's been recorded. (But why not?) This also includes all the items in ALL THE GOODS.
