The 2016 NaNoWriMo Writing Tools Bundle - Curated by Kevin J. Anderson
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.
To improve your craft, there's The Writer's Brainstorming Kit by Pam McCutcheon and Michael Waite, Managing Your Inner Artist/Writer by M.L. Buchman, Mastering Place and Setting in Your Writing by Eric Maisel, as well as the amazingly inspirational Drawing out the Dragons by James Artimus Owen. To understand the industry and manage your career, there's Closing the Deal on Your Terms by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, The Everyday Novelist: Business 101 by Daniel Sawyer, From Dreamer to Doer by Jude Wilhoff, Killing the Top Ten Sacred Cows of Indie Publishing by Dean Wesley Smith, Write It Forward: From Writer to Successful Author by Bob Mayer, Pros and Cons by Jody Lynn Nye and Bill Fawcett, and The Science Fiction Professional by Mike Resnick.
This bundle is a real grad-level course on becoming a writer—just the inspiration and information you need, not just for NaNoWriMo but for your entire career.
As a bonus, if you are looking to build your computer toolkit for writers, this bundle includes 50% on Jutoh, Digital Publishing Made Easy, and 80% off Writer's Café software. Two apps that help you write and format your novel!
The way StoryBundle works is simple: Name your own price, pay what you feel the bundle is worth. For a minimum payment of $5, you get the basic list of five books. If you pay $15 or more, you get the entire batch of books, all eleven titles.
A portion of your payment goes to support two great charities: The Don Hodge Memorial Scholarship Fund for the Superstars Writing Seminar and actress Pat Tallman's pet project Be A Santa, which benefits needy kids so they can have a real holiday.
The NaNoWriMo Writing Tools StoryBundle runs for only a limited time, from October 26 to December 22, and then it's gone. – Kevin J. Anderson

Why StoryBundle? Here are just a few benefits StoryBundle provides.
StoryBundle was created to give a platform for independent authors to showcase their work, and a source of quality titles for thirsty readers.
