Reposted from Kris Kramer at http://staringatablankpage.com/writers-herpes-formerly-the-blah-blah-blah-trick-to-writing-a-blockbuster-novel/ (Blah blah blah.) I started this blog a few weeks back with good intentions and a promise that I would write something (almost) every week. I made that promise because it’s extremely important for people in this line of work to show some consistency and motivation and a desire […]

Reposted from Kris Kramer at http://staringatablankpage.com/what-is-pulp-fantasy/ I’ve spent a lot of time lately working on book 6 of Tales of the Lore Valley, (along with plotting out books 7, 8, and 9 and starting up a brand new storyline… details to come) so I’ve had this idea rattling around in my head for a little […]
In the spirit of audiobooks (which will make sense when I put up another post tomorrow…) I wanted to give everyone a little freebie. We had a voice actor friend of ours, who goes by the name Scindo Veritas, do an audiobook version of our 1001 Bad Jokes book that we hand out at conventions […]
For those of you who missed out on the Lucky Dog signing, we have an even cooler event coming up in August! Patrick Underhill, Demethius Jackson, Jan Sikes, and myself (Kris Kramer) will be at the Landon Winery in the downtown McKinney Square on Sunday August 23rd at 1pm, doing selected readings from our latest […]
I’ve been a Dallas Mavericks fan for basically my entire adult life. I not only live and die by their success, but I’m pretty locked in on the moves they make, looking for any sign that they’re getting better, which increases my entertainment, or worse, which increases my despair. So I was understandably disappointed by […]
If you’re out and about in the Dallas area on Saturday July 11th, make some time to support your local independent bookstores and drop by at the grand opening of Lucky Dog Books’ NEW bookstore in the Bishop Arts District. They’ll have events going on all weekend, but from 1-3PM on Saturday, you can catch […]
Prologue Joba reached for the glass-encased oil lamp on the top shelf. He set it on the counter next to his latest project, nudging it around slightly to get the best light. The sun had drifted behind the hills west of town, draping his workshop in shadow. He’d be called to dinner soon, even though […]
One thing writers need to have a firm grasp on is critiques. They need to be able to take critiques from other writers or readers, and they need to be able to critique their own work objectively. It’s not always easy to do, but it’s critical for understanding how to craft your writing into something […]
We know you’ve been waiting a long time for Rise of Cithria Book 4 – The Master, and unfortunately we don’t have any new news for you Cithria fans on the release date (we’re still thinking late summer). But, we can do a little something to help hold you over in the meantime. Tomorrow, we’ll […]
It’s been a while since we’ve had a Coming Soon post, and even though none of you are clamoring for it, I figured I’d throw one up anyway! Before getting into what we’re currently working on, however, I suppose I should talk a bit about what we accomplished in the first part of this year. […]
What is the4threalm.com, you ask? Well, first and foremost, we’re authors, with books that we’re trying to get in front of your eyeballs. But we do more than just write.
We’re also an ebook publishing imprint, made up of a group of collaborative writers who help each other edit, critique, polish, publish and market our books. That means we work hard to make each other successful. The world of digital publishing can be a little bit like the wild west, and we’re here to tame it by providing our readers the assurance that they’re getting quality books and content.
Now that you’re here, take some time to browse through our current books and projects, read up on our published authors, and interact with other writers in our forums. We’re a community of creative types here at the4threalm.com, and we’re always looking for more people who want to express themselves through storytelling. So don’t be afraid to say hi!
