    Lifetime Subscription to Study Along

    Lifetime Subscription to the Online Study Along Workshops.

    Three times a year Kris teaches advanced craft workshops in Las Vegas to about ten to twelve invited professionals. Each workshop is on a different topic and lasts five days. Many writers can not make the workshops in Las Vegas for one reason or another, so Kris started an online Study Along series. It runs at the same time.

    Every craft workshop she teaches in Vegas will have a Study Along component. The writers in the Study Along get the same reading list and videos of Kris talking about each book. They also get the same story assignments. And they get Dean talking about some of Kris's lectures. Dean reads the stories. There is so much more in the Vegas workshops, but those taking the Study Along part find it challenging.

    Lifetime Subscription gets you all of the Study Along workshops online going forward.

    Also you get an early ebook copy of THE RENEGAT, the new Diving Universe novel plus two books of extras.
