I have a couple of fun surprises in store for you this week with two fantastic, yet totally different, types of bundles. And even better, one is nonfiction and one is fiction!

First up is The Write Stuff 2017 Storybundle. Curated by brilliant businesswoman and amazing author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, this bundle contains books by Kris, Dean Wesley Smith, Lawrence Block, Joanna Penn, Tonya D. Price, Maggie Lynch, Leah Cutter, Chuck Heintzelman and Mary Buckham, plus a free (yes, you read that right…free) WMG online lecture and steep discounts on Jutoh and Writer’s Café. And don’t forget, you name your own price with Storybundle.

Here’s what Kris has to say about The Write Stuff 2017:

Writing a book should be as easy as reading one. Right? Right?

Sounds so simple. But writing entertaining fiction isn’t simple. It’s like juggling while doing a one-handed handstand while balancing a box of three angry cats on your left foot. Enter The Write Stuff Bundle 2017. I put it together with writers of all levels in mind.

Our charity for this bundle, AbleGamers, helps people with disabilities enjoy the imaginary worlds of video games. The organization provides one-on-one assistance to help people with a variety of disabilities join the lively interactive world of gaming, easing the social isolation that being disabled can bring.

You can read even more about the bundle at https://storybundle.com/writing. But hurry: This bundle ends May 11.

For the second surprise, I’ve teamed up with a whole bunch of speculative fiction authors to offer more than 10 great short story anthologies for $2.99! Fiction River: Alchemy & Steam and the first Uncollected Anthology volume are included in this promotion, along with and stories from authors like Patricia Burroughs, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Ursula K. Le Guin, Vonda N. McIntyre, and Pam McCutcheon. Check out all the books here: bit.ly/spec-fic-sale. But act fast: This one ends May 1.
