If you haven’t picked up the 2015 NaNoWriMo StoryBundle yet, you only have until the end of the year to do so! This is the thing I mentioned two months ago, the enormous packet of writing advice from a bunch of different authors. My involvement, of course, is that it contains my own Writing Fight Scenes, but that’s only one of the thirteen books included — or one of twenty-five, if you chip in at least $25 for the lot. I particularly want to call attention to Judith Tarr’s Writing Horses; she runs a horse farm, and is a phenomenal source for information on what those animals are actually like (hint: they aren’t four-legged grass-eating motorcycles). And the second-tier bonus includes Shadows Beneath, which is an anthology from the people who run Writing Excuses; what makes it different from other anthologies is that it includes multiple drafts of each story, showing you how the authors went from initial attempt to final product. I haven’t had the time to read everything out of the bundle yet, but those two alone would be worth the price of admission.
Get it while the getting’s good! It’ll only be around for about one more day.
