Every year The Write Stuff Storybundle offers serious writers several books written on various aspects of making money as a writer. This year is no exception.
While writers with traditional contracts will benefit from most of these books, this is a collection of specific interest to all self-publishing authors.
The main focus of the bundle is how to reach new readers. A Writer’s Introduction to Social Media Marketing is the first of the marketing series by Business Books for Writers and is an exclusive for this bundle. Loyal readers who have purchased the entire series will benefit from reading The Writer’s Business Plan, the first book. A Writer’s Introduction to Social Media Marketing has an appendix that briefly recaps what goes into a Writer’s Marketing Plan. This recap is valuable as you create your social media marketing strategy.
I love to buy multiple books that focus on the same topic to compare and learn from different perspectives. The Write Stuff Bundle 2021 includes Joanne Penn’s newest book, An Author’s Business Plan. I encourage those who read and loved The Writer’s Business Plan to read Joanne’s book for additional ideas. We might even propose contradicting advice. I don’t know because I haven’t read Joanne’s book yet. If so, think which direction might work best for you and then try it or develop a modification of your own based on a blend of both approaches. Chances are you will find the advice similar. Creating a writer’s business plan is not all that controversial and tends to be consistent.
The bundle also includes Mark Lefebvre’s book, Working with Libraries and Bookstores, which offers invaluable insight into strategies for self-publishers looking to increase their readership.
If you are looking for a new way to get your name known, take a look at Johanna Rothman’s Write a Conference Proposal. There are so many advantages to speaking at conferences. You gain wider recognition among readers, you get paid, and you meet writers who can advise you and introduce you to authors who have traveled the path you are just starting to walk.
Dean Wesley Smith wrote an excellent synopsis of the Write Stuff StoryBundle, which I’m drawing from in this blog. Storybundle allows you to decide what price you want to pay. For $5 (or more, if you’re going to reward the authors who share a portion of the profits), you’ll get the essential bundle of four books in any ebook format—WORLDWIDE.
- The 30-Day Novel and Beyond! by Stefon Mears

If you pay at least the bonus price of just $15, you get all four of the regular books, plus five more books and a video lecture! That’s a total of nine books and a course, including four books that are not offered elsewhere, only in this StoryBundle!

One of the great things about The Write Stuff Storybundle is that every year they choose a charity, AbleGamers. This charity helps people with disabilities join the online gaming community. Many of these people are homebound, and AbleGamers fits gaming consoles and other equipment to individuals so that they can join in and make friends through the internet. If you can afford it, consider adding a few dollars to your bundle payment for AbleGamers.
So check out The Write Stuff Storybundle, get some fantastic business books for your writing education, and add some new weapons to your writing business arsenal.
