Outlaws of Time Giveaways

On April 19, 2016, I am launching OUTLAWS OF TIME: THE LEGEND OF SAM MIRACLE. It’s my first novel in two years, and to commemorate the memmorateness of the occasion, I’m focusing all my book promotion on giveaways!

Anyone who buys OUTLAWS in the first week (no later than April 23) will receive their choice of rewards. Multiple copies earn multiple rewards. I don’t care what format you might purchase or which retailer you might use, just email a receipt to and name your reward.

Over the years, I have heard from thousands of aspiring writers, young and old. And so my first giveaway centers focuses on all of you with interest in the craft.

REWARD (1) N.D. WILSON’S SCHOOL OF FANTASTICAL WORDCRAFT (For Aspiring Writers and Word Pirates)

Send in your receipt and receive links to nine (9!) segments on the craft of writing.

1)The Basics: See it/Say it
2) Plots & Outlines: Story Architecture
3) World Building: Realism and Fantasy
4) Character Building & Writing Dialog
5) Narrative Voice and POV
6) Style, Genre & Markets
7) The Poetry of Description: Word Bones and Rhythms
8) Mastering the Senses: Stories that Stick
9) From Rough to Final: Editing with a Blade

I’m filming these segments now and will begin sending them out free as soon as they’re ready.


Dear Ashtown Fans, I love you. No, really. You have hung in there with me through thick and thin. Even though I still haven’t been given a release date for this finale volume, it is your commitment and passion that keeps me pushing it forward. I’m not even joking. Because the fire burns hot among Ashtown fans, and because I hope you’ll love Sam and Glory in Outlaws of Time as much as you love Cyrus and Antigone Smith, I’m going to do something I have never done before. I’m going to record a reading of the first two chapters of Book IV from the manuscript, and I’m going to send it to you. If you, like thousands of others, would love to clear the cliffhanger at the end of Empire of Bones, this reward is for you. Send your receipt in and claim it.


For those of you who have print copies of my nonfiction, now you can take me with you to the gym. For those of you who have never read my nonfiction, now’s your chance! Send in your receipt and claim both downloads. I will be chatting at you in no time. And as a sidenote, I recorded these late at night, while sipping bourbon alone in the dark, so I really don’t hold anything back.

Cheers and thanks so much for your support!

    I missed the deadline for buying the book in order to get the reward, but I was wondering if buying N.D. WILSON’S SCHOOL OF FANTASTICAL WORDCRAFT (For Aspiring Writers and Word Pirates) separately was an option?

    So hopefully I’m not the only reader to notice that the boys at the ranch are named for the apostles (although my son missed it when he read it). I’m enjoying reading the book out loud to my seven year old… And the 13, 17, and 19 year olds seem to manage to be doing something in the vicinity while we are reading! Thanks for the stories. Looking forward to the next Ashtown Burials!
