Ohio Novel Merchandise… To be? Or not to be?

By Holly Lisle

Over on my Ko-Fi page, I’ve opened up the idea of early-access Ohio Novel merchandise (link opens in new tab) — stuff like T-shirts or coffee cups or other things that would help fund my weekly fiction writing hours, while at the same time giving potential urban fantasy readers some tiny peeks into the world I’m writing.

The merch will be sold exclusively through my Ko-Fi page, and will help with the funding of my fiction-writing time. So if you came here first, head over to my Ko-Fi page to get the details. 

But THIS is the place to ask questions, brainstorm ideas, and let me know what you’d love to see (or wear, or drink out of) in the replies below.

I think this could be fun. Weird. But fun.

So here are the two questions I’m asking:

  • What do you think of the merch idea?
  • What would make cool merch?

Content for the 5 Free Live Writing Chats

By Holly Lisle

I now have the 5 Free Live Writing Chats set up in my calendar, and have each chat broken out according to content.

This way, if you have specific questions, you can plan accordingly.

You can use this link to join the chat series at any time. (Link opens in new tab)

You’ll receive notifications for the live chats, and I’m pretty sure you’ll receive notifications for the replays if you’ve missed anything. (BRAND NEW SOFTWARE, I’m still learning it, so we have the potential for a certain amount of…ah…excitement.)
