This time, a story of going with the flow.

After writing for more than a decade, Kevin Wolf won a major award in a writing contest and the prize included a contract with none other than St. Martin’s Press.

Last month, Kevin Wolf published his second novel, Brokeheart, and he’s with a whole new publisher.

Both books are set in Colorado and both were inspired by locations in the state that stem from Kevin’s own family history, but one story is set in the present and the new one takes us back to the late 19th century with some paranormal elements, but whether with a big house or not-so-big house Kevin is here to tell us what he’s learned along the way.

Brokeheart features frontier newspaper man Kepler arriving in the Colorado mining town in hopes of making a fresh start. As he begins to report the goings on of Brokeheart and the conditions at the mine, he attracts attention from all quarters, from the mysterious European aristocrat who hires him to oversee the construction of a hunting lodge to the unsavory foreman of the Brokeheart mine.

Are you comfortable writing short stories? Have you thought about it, but don’t know how or where to begin?

Saytchyn Maddux-Creech is here to help.

Saytchyn is teaching a 15-day online class called, Write An Amazing Short Story in Two Weeks. The course is being offered online through RMFW-U beginning Dec. 2.

On the podcast, Saytchyn gives a sneak peek at her approach to writing short stories—she’s published about 20—and touches on some of the key ideas she’ll cover in the course. Even if you only have a "crumb" of an idea, she says, you should try the course and give it a go.

Saytchyn Maddux-Creech survived the MFA program at Colorado State University with her love of all things creepy intact. She writes horror, fantasy, and mystery with a literary accent. Her short stories have been published in numerous literary and genre magazines under her own name and the name Sandra Maddux-Creech. You can find her most recent work in Petrichor Machine, Typehouse Literary Review, and Menacing Hedge, as well as in the award-winning RMFW anthology, Found.

Emily Littlejohn says luck may have played a small role in getting her first novel published, but so did hard work and listening to feedback from experts. As Emily puts it, books are not written in a vacuum.

Inherit the Bones, published at this time last year, was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award. This week, A Season To Lie releases and it also features police detective Gemma Monroe solving murders in the fictional Colorado mountain town of Cedar Valley.

Emily Littlejohn is a former librarian who has been obsessed with mystery and horror novels since she was a child. When she’s not placing her heroine in precarious situations, Littlejohn can be found enjoying the beautiful Colorado mountains with her husband and growing family.

A Season to Lie releases on Tuesday, Nov. 14.
