A Book Bundle for Writers
Are you a writer? Or do you know someone who is? If so, how would you like to pick upeleven books at once that contain everythingyou need to know to be a writer and to build a writing career? Books written by established pros, best sellers, and award-winners. Sound good? What if you could also get a 40% discount on the best software available today for producing professional quality ebooks, the tool used by the top indie authors?
Well, you can (yeah, you knew that was coming). For a limited time, StoryBundle is offering “The Write Stuff” ebook bundle that gives you all of the above, including my own Playing the Short Game. This bundle was curated by the award-winning, multi-genre author and editor, Kristine Kathryn Rusch. Here’s what Kris says about how she put the bundle together:
“So many people who write books on writing have never published fiction or had a real writing career.
But not here. We have worldwide bestsellers, award-winners, and career writers of longstanding. Every single writer here has lived the writing life—and has much to say about it.
We have four craft books in the bundle, provided by Dean Wesley Smith, Jerrold Mundis, Vonda McIntyre, and Judith Tarr. Dean wrote Writing Into The Dark for all the writers who don’t like outlining before they start a project. That book goes hand in hand with Jerry’s book, Break Writer’s Block Now! If writing into the dark won’t stop you from freezing before blank screen, then Jerry’s book will. Vonda’s book, Pitfalls of Writing Science Fiction & Fantasy, has excellent craft advice even if you don’t want to write in those two genres. And finally, Judy’s book, Writing Horses: The Fine Art of Getting It Right is a godsend for those of us who write fantasy, historical, or western fiction.
We have books that focus on the form your writing can take, be they short stories, novels, or audio books. Douglas Smith wrote the definitive book on all aspects of a short story writer’s career, from completion to publication and republication. You can find all that wisdom in Playing the Short Game. Bob Mayer gives you everything you need to know about writing novels to selling them in The Novel Writer’s Toolkit. J. Daniel Sawyer teaches you how to turn those prose pieces into podcasts and audio books in Making Tracks.
We have a book that focuses on business as well. Leah Cutter’s Business for Breakfast divides the writing business into bite-sized pieces for easy digestion.
And then there are the books on the writing life. Chuck Wendig’s 30 Days in the Word Mines gives you a peek into a writer’s day-to-day existence, with lots of writing tips to help you through. Laura Resnick’s classic Rejection, Romance, & Royalties shows, as the subtitle puts it, “the wacky world of a working writer.” My own, The Write Attitude, helps writers pick themselves up and dust themselves off when the writing world becomes wacky—as it so often does.
Plus, we have a marvelous bonus item. The kind folks who developed Jutoh have contributed a 40% off coupon for their product. If you’re doing your own publishing, you want Jutoh. … You can be completely confident that you have a top-of-the-line epub that will pass even the strictest e-retailer demands.
So here it is: Everything you need to know to write what you want, how you want to write it, what to do with it when you’re done, and how to survive the perils and pitfalls of a writing career.”
