not never too late to gift the writer in your life with two reasonably cheap reference resources they will appreciate for a very long time.
- Storybundle’s 25 writing craft ebooks package
- The Miller’s Compendium – brand new
Storybundle’s NaNoWriMo Bundle
I wrote about this back in November here. But the NaNoWriMo writer’s craft bundle of e-books is still available to the end of the year – for whatever you want to pay for it.
There are 25 writing craft books in this bundle, and you can gift it also, allowing your writer to select the type of ebook file they will need for their e-reader app or device.

Miller’s Compendium of Timeless Tools for the Modern Writer
I was one of the Kickstarter backers for this huge ebook of writing resources, and the full ebook is just now available, in the nick of time for holiday giving. When I got my copy I just salivated – although the author can’t possibly include all the most excellent writing resource links out there, he’s done a good job of covering most, including many I was unaware of.
Broken into story, character and other categories, there are plotting techniques, character development techniques and many more resources linked to, and in many cases, diagrammed out. A superb reference and go-to book for any writer.
It’s over 400 pages long, and a large download. Because the compendium references over a thousand online references, it’s an e-book available via Kindle. Using the free kindle apps, it can be read across PC’s, OSX or mobile devices and will remain open for many writers in any point of the writing or planning processes. The vintage-like graphics also make the guide huge fun to explore.
This would, in itself, be an awesome present for the writer in your life.
Get the compendium here on Amazon (not an affiliate link). It’s expensive as ebooks go, but I believe worth it.
