    SPECIAL HOW TO WRITE SPACESHIPS

    NOT OFFERED ANYWHERE ELSE

    How to Write Spaceships in Space Opera Special Workshop.

    Diving is a space opera series. Take a look at the covers of the sixteen books from the Diving Series in "The Story." What do you see on every cover? Spaceships of all shapes and sizes. Kris is a master of building spaceships in her Diving Universe books and making them real to readers. From "Diving Into the Wreck" to the boneyards full of thousands of ships, she knows how to make them all real.

    And she is willing to teach you. Kris will put this together and Dean will present it. He also knows how to build spaceships in Seeders, his space opera series. Plus they both wrote a lot of Star Trek and made those ships come alive as well.

    This is a three-week workshop, only offered through this Kickstarter campaign. You will have your choice of taking it starting on July 6th or August 3rd.

    You also get an electronic copy of THE CHASE.

    VASTNESS OF SPACE SPECIAL WORKSHOP--TWO

    ONLY OFFERED HERE...
    To write great science fiction space opera, you need an understanding of the vastness of space. In the Colliding Worlds Kickstarter Campaign, we offered a special three-week workshop on learning how to write about the vastness of space.

    Well, because the topic was so huge, there needs to be more. This is a completely different workshop on the same topic.

    --- You do not have to have taken the first one.
    --- If you took the first one, you will learn even more about writing the vastness of space. Nothing is repeated from the first one.

    This is a three-week special workshop, only offered through this Kickstarter campaign. You will have your choice of taking it starting on July 6th or August 3rd.

    As with all rewards, you will also get an electronic copy of THE CHASE.

    And you can add this to any reward.

    You can also buy both special workshops in a discounted package.
