Here’s an interview on writing and books with my good friend Jody Lynn Nye. I thought you might enjoy it—and read Jody’s books! Her new nonfiction book, with Bill Fawcett, is Pros and Cons, and her novel Taylor’s Ark, were both just released by WordFire Press.
If you’re a writer, you know about NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, every November when aspiring authors scramble to try to write the first draft of a new book in one month flat. There are challenge groups, sprint partners, lots of blogs, advice from writers.
Each year for NaNoWriMo, I curate a StoryBundle of books on various aspects of the craft and business of writing, and for 2016 I’ve got eleven titles—your complete toolkit for getting through NaNoWriMo and increasing your own writing knowledge.
Several times a year, you see me posting (yes, even haranguing you) about a new book bundle I’m part of—whether it’s thrillers, monsters, adventure SF, epic fantasy, writing tools, political thrillers. You name your own price and get a big grab bag of books.
Tick. Tick. Tick.
Do you feel your pulse pounding? Time is running out.
Sometimes it feels as if life is like a nuclear reactor overheating, a race car with a stuck pedal, accelerating out of control. Your “To Read” stack grows higher and higher, while your reading time decreases each week. Too many responsibilities. Too many distractions. Too little quiet time.
For the third year in a row, I have curated a batch of truly epic fantasy books for storybundle.com—eleven books that will take readers to the edges of the map of their imagination.
