The 2018 NaNoWriMo Writing Tools Bundle Bundle, curated by Kevin J. Anderson.
It's that time of year: November is "NaNoWriMo" or National Novel Writing Month, when ambitious authors take the challenge to write the first draft of a novel from start to finish in a month. While gearing up for the challenge, writers are looking for advice, techniques, and resources.
And boy do we have a toolkit for you! I've curated an impressive collection of a dozen books on writing that will be inspirational, helpful, maybe even provocative. You can get all of the books for as little as $15, and a portion of the proceeds goes directly to benefit the Challenger Learning Center for Space Science Education. Click here to read much more about the bundle, and make sure to click on each cover for reviews and a preview of all the books!
How to Write a Novel by Simon Haynes
"If you need a book with easy to follow instructions, from a professional, prolific writer of over 20 years experience, Simon Haynes's book on How to Write a Novel is the book you should start with."– Amazon Review
Story Pitch by Scott King
"I had never tried writing the pitch before the book, but it helped clarify my ideas. And, now that I am writing the book, having that pitch prepared has helped get out of the weeds more than once. It also provides great information on what a story is. The exercise breaks the process down so that I didn't just read the book, I applied it."– Amazon Review
The Secrets of Success 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
You Must Write by Kevin McLaughlin
"A practical and useful guide for starting and staying on your writing game. A good virtual kick in the pants, if you need it."– Amazon Review
Writing as a Team Sport by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta
"As a writer, editor, proofreader, and English teacher, I found a LOT in this book for me. I honestly wish I'd read this before I started teaching a couple of years ago. My students often struggle to work collaboratively, and I think this would have given me some tools to help them through some of the challenges they had while doing group projects. This is a great book for writers, but it's a great choice for teachers too. It's short, clear, easy to read, AND interesting."– Amazon Review
The Healthy Writer by Joanna Penn and Dr. Euan Lawson
"Simple, actionable advice that applies specifically to writers. Beyond physical health, [it] also dives into emotional and psychological well-being, which are so often overlooked by similar books. After reading The Healthy Writer, I feel less alone with some of my health concerns and have the tools I need to improve my writing workspace and develop healthier habits."– Kate M Colby, 5-star Amazon review
Bundle Up by Jamie Ferguson
"Jamie Ferguson knows what she's talking about when it comes to bundle and anthology curation. These collaborative works require effective organization, communication, and vision. You have to put in the time, and Jamie goes above and beyond. When I get an invitation from Jamie, I jump on it without hesitation; she's that effective as a curator."– Allyson Longueira, Publisher of WMG Publishing, Inc.
Become a Successful Indie Author by Craig Martelle
"Craig, thanks to the book, I went from kicking around vague concepts for my first series to knowing exactly how to proceed with it, and because of that I know it'll be far more successful than it would have been if I hadn't read this."– Amazon Review
The How-To Structure Workbook For Trilogies, Series and Parallel Worlds by C. Michelle Jefferies
"The How to Structure Workbook for Trilogies, Series, and Parallel Worlds is informative and easy to follow. Descriptions of each kind of series are written in detail and followed with helpful instruction and guidance on how to write each one.
I've been stuck writing my trilogy for months but after reading this guide I knew exactly what my book two was missing and how to fix it! And the work sheets are incredibly helpful!"– Konstanz Silverbow
How to Polish Your Manuscript into a Rock-Solid Book by Andrea Pearson
"Andrea really knows this stuff, and she makes the overwhelming become manageable. Her step-by-step process makes self-publishing a breeze."– Tony Hernandez, author of the Devil's Blessing

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.
