The Novel Writer's Toolkit by Bob Mayer

"An invaluable resource for beginning and seasoned writers alike. Don't miss out."

– #1 NY Times Best-Selling Author Terry Brooks

Writing Into the Dark 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

Playing the Short Game by Douglas Smith

"We short story writers have needed a book like this for decades. I'm glad Doug decided to write it. Read and reread this volume. Because you'll learn something each time you do. And take Doug's advice. It's spectacular."

– Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Award-winning Author and Editor

Break Writer's Block Now! by Jerrold Mundis

"Jerry Mundis is the drug of choice for writer's block. If you want to get off your ass and onto the page, he can make it happen."

– Lawrence Block, bestselling mystery and crime novelist, celebrated Grand Master Award winner from the Mystery Writers of America

Making Tracks - A Writer's Guide to Audiobooks by J. Daniel Sawyer

"It's a fantastic investment in understanding how to exploit audio-rights. A must-read for every author-entrepreneur." Goodreads

Writing Horses - The Fine Art of Getting It Right by Judith Tarr

"I've read this twice, and I find myself going back to it frequently. Though usually I do not like reading on the computer (and this is formatted for ebooks of all stripes if one prefers) the embedded URLs are crampacked with good information giving further details of every aspect of horse history, physiology, social and herd dynamics, breeding, and doctoring. There is also a chapter on magical horses and how to add realistic drama to your story with details of horse trivia."

– Sherwood Smith

The Write Attitude by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

"The bible for the self-employed."

– John Ottinger III, teacher and editor of Grasping for the Wind, on The Freelancer’s Survival Guide

Rejection, Romance & Royalties by Laura Resnick

"The best book on the writing life since Bird By Bird or The Artist's Way. The incisive and insightful Laura Resnick cuts right to the heart of the joys, sorrows, costs, and rewards of pursuing the creative dream."

– Teresa Medeiros, New York Times bestselling author

30 Days in the Word Mines by Chuck Wendig

"Chuck Wendig hammers out writing and career advice that's always brave, profane, creative, clever, and honest. And don't forget hilarious. You'll never laugh so hard learning so much."

– Matt Forbeck, game designer and author of AMORTALS and VEGAS KNIGHTS.

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.
