Welcome to Writing With Beers!

What the Writing With Beers Website is all about…

Get all the latest news on James’s writing – what stories he has coming out, what stories he’s working on – and read snippets of his stories by signing for his newsletter, Beers News & Story Brews (click HERE or sign up in the side bar). He loves hearing from his fans so let him know what you think about his projects. Even if you think he needs improvement (who doesn’t, right?), he wants to know how you think he could write better.

See what James does in his spare time (when he’s not writing). Read in his bio about what makes him tick and what inspires him to write. Be sure to watch his interview with Freaking Awesome Authors host, Cue Monologue (click HERE).

Also, check out what James has been reading by following his blog series “Books that aren’t boring.”


Latest News

I’ve been working with several writing organizations in Utah – LUW, LDSPPA, SCBWI, HWA, and RWA – to organize a conference that focuses on book marketing tips, principles, tools, processes, trends, and strategies. Unlike some of the other writing conferences we have in Utah, the Utah’s 2018 Book Marketing Symposium will not focus on writing craft (unless the writing craft has anything to do with marketing a book, e.g., writing back cover copy that sells) but solely on how sell and get writers’ books into the hands of readers.

The Symposium will be held on Friday March 23, 2018 at the Viridian Events Center in West Jordan, Utah. As we get closer to the conference registration will be available and opportunities for volunteering will be available.

If you are interested in submitting a presentation proposal for the Symposium, click on this link (HERE) and fill out the Presentation Proposal Submission Form.
