I reached a milestone over the weekend: 10 years at the helm of WMG. I have a beautiful bouquet of flowers to mark the occasion (Thanks again, Kris and Dean!).

That’s really amazing, when I think about it. When I joined the company, I was the only employee, and it was in the very early stages of a startup. Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith, the owners of WMG, could promise me a year’s salary, but the rest was up to us to make the company a viable endeavor.

And boy, has it grown since then. We had some rough spots in the early years, like all startups do, but we’ve grown every year since the start. We now have about 1,000 titles in our inventory, and our core staff has been on board for five years. Last year alone, we published more than 200 new titles (which is an impressive feat that should not be repeated because of its insanity <grin>).

But our book inventory is not all that has grown exponentially. Our educational offerings, in the form of writing lectures and workshops, has grown exponentially, as well. As of today, we have 224 online workshop and lecture options available on Teachable. Unless I’m wrong, this is the most extensive offering of online writing workshops available anywhere. You can find a wealth of classes taught by Dean, of course, Kris, and me.

And as of today, everything we have available on Teachable is half price! That’s right: all classes, workshops, lectures, pop-ups, subscriptions, challenges…everything!
