Happy Anniversary to AuthorCulture!


Break out the Champagne (or sparkling grape juice)! AuthorCulture is celebrating its second anniversary today! That's 52 weeks per year times three posts per week times two years equals . . . more than I can calculate in my head. (I'm a writer, not a mathematician.)

To celebrate, each of us is contributing to a gift basket for some lucky winner of the giveaway! (You'll see what all's included at the end of the post.) Drawing is Monday, June 6, so leave your comment to be entered!

For our next year, we're introducing a new post category, Genre Talk. These posts will hold genre-specific tips, news, interviews, and ideas. We're also adding a new team member!

Meet John Robinson~~~


John is the author of the popular Joe Box suspense series, and is a much-in-demand speaker and teacher, having taught fiction tracks for three years at a nationally-ranked writers conference just outside Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The first title in his Joe Box series, Until the Last Dog Dies, was published by RiverOak Publishing in a three-book deal, which also included the hard-hitting When Skylarks Fall, and To Skin a Cat. All three works received outstanding reviews. With the release of his apocalypse-with-a-twist thriller Heading Home, his upcoming mind-bending science fiction novel The Radiance, and the first of his new soldier of fortune Mac Ryan series, Relentless, John stands ready to continue to deliver more nail-biting, heart-stopping suspense.


John is talented and knowledgeable, and will be a wonderful asset to us here at AuthorCulture. We're thrilled to add him to our list of contributors. You'll be learning more about him June 6, and his first official post is an article on marketing, scheduled for June 8.

Now, for the giveaways!
