Parts of Oregon, including Lincoln County, started opening up last week as we moved into Phase 1. Hair salons, retail stores, gyms, restaurants for sit-down dining, and a few other things are open again. But not the same way they were before, of course. A lot of rules and recommendations to observe—masks, social distancing, sanitation rules, and more. This will be our new normal for some time, I suspect.

Now, we’ll see who actually reopens. It’s been like Schrödinger’s cat. We couldn’t know what businesses were dead or alive until we opened up again.

So, a lot of folks will be starting over. Perhaps even changing careers.

And although I’m sure you’re all well aware of Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s writing books, you might not remember that her first nonfiction series was geared toward freelancers of all stripes.

So, when we decided to bundle together the WMG Writer’s Guides in our latest Kickstarter, we also decided to do a bit of bundling to the Freelancer’s Survival Guide series.

We didn’t need to worry about a paperback bundle, because the Freelancer’s Survival Guide already contains all of the short books, plus a bit more.

But we hadn’t yet bundled any of the short books together. So, starting tomorrow, you can get not only the individual short books and the big book in ebook and paper, but also three new ebook bundles:

A Freelancer’s Survival Guide to Starting Your Own Business
When to Quit Your Day Job
Getting Started
Networking in Person and Online

A Freelancer’s Survival Guide to Reaching Your Goals
Goals and Dreams
Turning Setbacks into Opportunity
Time Management

A Freelancer’s Survival Guide to Maximizing Your Success
The Secrets of Success
How to Negotiate Anything
How to Make Money

Each of these bundles is available for $9.99.

But if you’ve signed up for our Stay Inside and Chill newsletter, you’ll be getting a discount code this week for 50 percent off. That’s like getting three Freelancer short books for the price of one!

And if you also want some writer-specific advice from Kris and a slate of other fantastic authors, don’t forget about the Write Stuff 2020 StoryBundle, which includes the Bundle on Craft: A WMG Writer’s Guide Bundle, Rethinking the Writing Business, and a WMG online lecture called “Writer’s Block and Procrastination,” as well as seven other helpful tools for writers.

Continue to stay safe out there, even as we begin to navigate this newest reality of ours.
