Question of the Month – April 2022

By Kathleen McClure | May 6, 2022

Hello! First, yes, it is now May, and while April’s question was timely, it took a while to collect the answers (we’re a global operation, don’t you know) and then for me, Kathleen, to sit down long enough to post said answers. I swear, things will calm down. Eventually. But, onto the question. As some …

The Why

By Kathleen McClure | April 15, 2022

Just taking a moment to share two videos that drop some wisdom on several whys, from why we don’t trust ourselves to why we create to why we can’t explain why we know what we know. The first is from The Quitcast, and is third in a series for Intuitive writers, which I’m following closely …

Monthly Cuppa: Work, work, work—podcast?

By Kathleen McClure | April 6, 2022

This week I have some actual, time sensitive news, which is that I was a recent guest on the Alternate Futures podcast! I won’t lie, I was a bit terrified to actually talk  about life, writing Sci-Fi, processes, and the Great KDP Debacle of 2021, but Edwin is a wonderful host, and a genuine pleasure …

Shaking the Firmament

By Kathleen McClure | March 4, 2022

  Though I suppose, in this case, shaking the firmament is more along the lines of starting a Kickstarter-quake. For those who’ve missed the news, it appears Brandon Sanderson, who is no stranger to Indie publishing, broke Kickstarter’s record when he started up a campaign to fund four new books, to be released quarterly in …

Monthly Cuppa: Changing Gears

By Kathleen McClure | February 11, 2022

Welcome, all! As you may have noticed, I decided to make a change to the Friday blog posts, switching from the pressure-oriented, horrifyingly official Weekly Update to the much more accessible (and realistic) Friday Cuppa. So, while I’ll still mention where and how progress is occurring in our creative pod, I’ll also be sharing the …

Weekly Update: February 4, 2022

By Kathleen McClure | February 4, 2022

It’s Friday! And there’s a wee bit of ice outside, but nothing like last February (so far). During the week, in addition to “ice prepping” and “long distance offspring coaching,” and Kelley and I had another time-zone-crossing meet up and knocked out a chapter for Crew Who Came in From the Cold.  This went well, …

Weekly Update: January 28, 2022

By Kathleen McClure | January 28, 2022

We seem to have arrived at the last full week of January, which happened terribly fast, quite likely because I spent every spare moment (and a few not so spare) of this past week binge reading all of Anne Leckie’s Imperial Radch Trilogy,  John Jackson Miller’s Star Trek: Picard prequel, Rogue Elements, and Emily St. John Mandel’s …

Weekly Update: January 21, 2022

By Kathleen McClure | January 21, 2022

Getting the sad news out of the way first. The cat I mentioned last week did, indeed, decide she was done by this past Wednesday. She will be missed, from her calm acceptance of everything and everyone, to her mighty purr, to the way she made a tribble noise every time a person would pet …

Weekly Update: January 14, 2022

By Kathleen McClure | January 14, 2022

Okay-this week is a little wonky. Like, I lost track of which days I was supposed to post which chapter of which book wonky. Mostly because since last Friday, I have flown to and from another state (in two days!), then come home to an aged and ill cat who we’re at the “coaxing to …
