Welcome to the The 2016 NaNoWriMo Writing Tools Bundle, curated by best-selling author Kevin J. Anderson! He says:
If you're a writer, you know about NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, every November when aspiring authors scramble to try to write the first draft of a new book in one month flat. There are challenge groups, sprint partners, lots of blogs, advice from writers.
Each year for NaNoWriMo, I curate a StoryBundle of books on various aspects of the craft and business of writing, and for 2016 I've got eleven titles—your complete toolkit for getting through NaNoWriMo and increasing your own writing knowledge.
Not only do we have books made to help you get through NaNoWriMo and start (or continue) your writing career, we also have coupon codes for Jutoh and Writer's Cafe, two supremely useful software apps that help you write and format your novel!
Oh, and there's more! Click here to read the rest, and make sure to click on each cover for reviews, a preview and a personal note from our curator!
Drawing Out the Dragons by James A. Owen
"In this book, James inspires and motivates both the young and young-at-heart with personal stories that share an important belief: that you can choose to lead an extraordinary life if you will just persevere, stay focused on your goals, and believe in yourself. James believes in you. And I believe in him."– LeVar Burton
The Writer's Brainstorming Kit by Pam McCutcheon and Michael Waite
"The Writer's Brainstorming Kit seemed like a truly dumb idea, until I sptarted using it. Now I wouldn't be without it. I can't recommend it highly enough. Every writer I've shared it with wants to steal mine, but I tell them they have to buy their own. So should you. It is marvelous."– Carolyn McSparren, award-winning romance author
Closing the Deal on Your Terms by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
"[Kristine Kathryn Rusch's blog,] The Business Rusch…is full of sound advice and analysis about what's going on."– Jeff Baker, The Oregonian
From Dreamer to Doer by Jude Wilhoff
"This book is fantastic for those starting out on their indie publishing journey, and a great refresher for those who've done it for a while. With links to resources, a time-table, and solid advice on how to market and run your writing business, (for make no mistake, as an indie author, you are running a business!), this book takes you by the hand and guides you step-by-step. The most inspirational part of the book is the author's personal story on overcoming adversity and giving her dream the chance it deserves. She leads by example and shares the steps she took to make her dream come true. This book is a keeper!"– MuseBemused on Amazon
The Every Day Novelist: Business 101 by J. Daniel Sawyer
"...will change the way you think about publishing, publishers, agents, your books, and yourself. Essential reading for new authors and veterans alike."– Chris Lester, author of Things Unseen
Killing the Top 10 Sacred Cows of Indie Publishing by Dean Wesley Smith
"Dean Wesley Smith's blog … is somewhere to see what's going on in the industry and how you can use it to your advantage, a place to hear that it's okay to write and submit quickly, and a blog where hard numbers are discussed. Even if you don't agree with everything that he says, it's worth reading his blog just to think about where and how much control you have over your own career."– Vision Magazine
Write it Forward: From Writer to Successful Author by Bob Mayer
"Whatever Bob Mayer has to tell us about writing is something we should know. His Toolkit proves an invaluable resource for beginning and seasoned writers alike. Don't miss out."– #1 NY Times best-selling author Terry Brooks

Zero DRM. There's no DRM on any of our books. None. Why? For one, we don't believe DRM actually stops people from sharing what they want to share. Second, and most importantly, we don't believe we should be treating our customers as criminals. So go ahead and put these on your tablets, Kindles and smartphones, but if a friend wants to read the bundle, please have them buy one for themselves. With pay-what-you-want, we believe there's a price for everyone. Or better yet, buy one for them as a gift. Help support indie authors!
Support nonprofits. Best of all, you can also give a portion of the proceeds from each bundle to charity. To learn more about these charities and those they help, click the "Learn More" link next the charities when you purchase.
Easy delivery. It's super convenient to get these ebooks onto your reader of choice—just download and sync. Better yet, if you have a Kindle or Kindle-enabled tablet or smartphone, we can send the books directly to your device. No computer required.
