Each year, as countless determined writers, both aspiring and professional, look at November as National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, Kevin J Anderson in collaboration with Storybundle.com puts together a grab back of helpful books that cover all aspects of writing, from craft, to business, to indie publishing, to marketing. This year is no exception. And I was honored and delighted to be asked to join them. Here’s a little more about the bundle.
Presenting a world-class StoryBundle of 16 books that will help you up your game as a writer. In order to write your novel in a month or less, you need to develop a plan and increase your productivity. We’ve got several titles to do just that—C. Michelle Jefferies has the 30 Day NaNoWriMo Prep Book, while Monica Leonelle offers a slightly different take with Novel Writing Prep: A 30-Day Planner That Prepares You To Write 50,000 Words in One Month.
Once you’ve got a plan, pump up your output with The No-Nonsense, No BS Guide to Putting Words on the Page by Natasha Khullar Relph and Be a Writing Machine by Michael La Ronn. Kevin McLaughlin shows you how to find more time to write in The Coffee Break Novelist, while Joanna Penn and Mark Leslie Lefebvre help you take care of yourself while you crank out the words in The Relaxed Author.
Next step is to massage those words into something worth reading. The Survival Kit for Writers Who Don’t Write Right by Patricia McLinn will help out, and for more specific techniques, Ian Madison Keller and Mary E. Lowd show you how to write animals in Furry Fiction Is Everywhere.
My own offering in this StoryBundle is my latest book, 8 Steps to Side Characters: How to Craft Supporting Roles with Intention, Purpose, and Power. Detailing how to build side characters full of depth and reader-grabbing sass.
And now to get published! If you’re interested in producing the book yourself as an indie publisher, you have a whole industry to learn. Start out with C. A. Price’s A Simple How-To Guide for Indie Publishers and The Indie Author’s Bible by Christopher D. Schmitz. There’s even a book on how to avoid the slush pile if you’re more interested in trad publishing: Slush Pile Memories: How Not to Get Rejected by Kevin J. Anderson himself.
Getting into more of the nitty-gritty, Craig Martelle offers The Successful Indie Author: Release Strategies and Tao Wong has Marketing Strategy for Authors. For a really deep dive into emails and newsletters, we even offer specific books by Andrea Pearson, Killer Content: How to Write Emails that Get Your Books Downloaded, and Erika Everest, The Strategic Author’s Guide to Mailerlite.
But hurry, the NaNoWriMo Writing Tools Storybundle will only be available until the beginning of December.
