Win a Book Bundle!

How about another prize drawing? I’ve been cleaning out my personal library and, instead of just passing the books on to the local Goodwill, I’d thought I’d spread the wealth.

If you’d like to enter to win one of six book bundles (Speculative, Historical, Inspirational Romance, Contemporary Fiction, Christian Living, or Writing Resources), leave a comment! I will announce the winner on Friday, April 5.

  1. Exciting! Thanks for hosting this <3

  2. You analysis of Jane Eyre sounds intriguing. I’m looking forward to the release.

  3. Thanks for the offer. I love your blog and wish I could do one as well.

  4. Well, you’re not a book border like I am! 😉

  5. I love coming here and learning something new. Thanks for your dedication to doing this blog.


  6. Ooo! Books! Please put me in the drawing. : )

    P.S. My bad guys motive is just the opposite of the good guy. : )

  7. Thanks for such a helpful writers’ blog.
    I always felt you that you could never have too many books, but my wife disagrees for some reason. ;D


  8. Would I like to win some books? Heck yeah! Count me in 🙂

  9. A drawing! If you’re willing to also send them internationally I’m in. 🙂
    Your blog has been very helpful with writing my own stories. ^^

  10. I would live to get in on the drawing! Books are such a luxery for me anymore, and the more books on writing the better, I say.

  11. II would cherish some new books as reading is a great joy to me since early childhood!

    I am age 69 but i am attempting my first novel and your u tube videos on writing have helped tremendously.
    as a young girl Jane Eyre was a great comfort to me as i was a lonely abused child and janes struggles were ones i could identify with. finding love with Mr. Rochester also comforted me as i felt love might never come to me but i have been married 44 years now and though we have had many struggles and heartbreak with the loss of our only child at age 38, we are still in love and together.

  12. Hmm, you might have to twist my arm. Ouch! Okay, that’s far enough. I’m in! 🙂

  13. Deconstructing a classic sounds like great fun..and lots to learn….and one can never have enough writer’s resources…

  14. Awesome! Do we get to choose which bundle we win? In any case, thanks for all the great advice you always provide! 🙂

  15. Fun stuff! What a great way to start the month. Thanks for offering this! 🙂

  16. Thanks for the opportunity.

  17. I take everything to charity. I never thought of doing a drawing. And now I’m entering one to get more stuff. My husband will roll his eyes if I win, but I’ll just do my happy dance. Another great idea. Thanks.

  18. Oh, I love new books!!! Would love to have something new to read for the Spring!!!

  19. I’ll take Speculative for $200 8^).

  20. I’ll take any of the above!

  21. I am really excited about the book on deconstructing a classic – Please keep us informed about when it is available. I’d love to win a bundle of books and happy to be surprised – trying to read a wide genre of styles – each has something to teach me in writing a memoir. Have a blessed day.

  22. Out of room on my bookcases, but does that ever stop me from entering book contests? No. lol

  23. Sweet! Thanks.

  24. I would love to win some books!! (The writer’s resources looks especially intriguing!) And yes, I too am out of bookshelf space, but there is still plenty of floor and bed space to pile stacks on, so I’m not worried yet.

  25. Those packages are such a temptation! Hope to get a chance!

  26. What? A person can have too many books? How is this possible? I’m more than happy to take a few off your hands *G*

  27. What a good idea! I’d love to win that romance bundle.

  28. Ooh, awesome giveaway! I’d love to win the Writing Resources bundle. Or any of them, actually. ^_^

  29. Always a book lover, I’d like to win more books. Thanks for your book “Outlining your novel: Map your way to success”. I’m working away at my novel and finding that it has helped me get going! I also checked out Y-writer and I’m loving the tool! Thanks for all you do!

  32. Very generous of you, and thanks!

  33. Love reading your blog! And would love to win a bundle!

  34. Oooh, I SO don’t need any new books, but I can’t say no to a good contest! The speculative, historical, contemp. fiction, and writing resources bundles all sound really good. 😀

  35. What a great idea! Thanks for offering your personal books, and thanks for your great blog.

  36. I enjoyed reading your book Dreamlander, and look forward to reading your other books.
    I think a giveaway sounds great! My congrats to the future winners.

  38. I like how you bound the books together like little treasures. Please continue posting great article!

  40. I’d like to enter for the Writing Resources bundle.

  41. I’d love to win! Fun giveaway! 🙂

  42. I’ve always been interested in writing stories, but before I read your book “Outlining Your Novel,” I had no idea how to structure a complex story. I would start writing with a vague idea in mind, and then stop out of frustration because I didn’t know where to go with it. Reading your book and your blog opened my eyes to an entirely new process that is so much more manageable and satisfying. I now feel like I have the tools to actually finish a manuscript. Thank you 🙂

  43. I LOVE books! I’m running out of space for them in my room though. 😛

  44. This sounds interesting.

    I wish you much success.

  45. This comment has been removed by the author.

  46. Exciting! These sound like great book bundles – count me in! Thanks for being willing to do these giveaways!

  47. I can’t help but feel the winning comment should be funny… and yet all I post is this? I’m ashamed for myself. If only the winning criterion were the best use of an ellipsis…

  48. Sounds like fun! I could always use more books on writing (and in general!) Never enough books. 😀 Can’t wait for Structuring Your Novel!

  49. Ooh I’m in desperate need of new material to read.

  50. Books on writing are so much fun. I am in Canada but could get it COD.


  51. Oh, I would be so excited to win any bundle of books!

  53. I’m wondering what is in your “writing resources” bundle. Thanks for the chance to win! I adore your blog . . .

  54. Oh what perfect timing. Thanks for being so generous with your books.

  55. Fantastic! Hope you can spread the wealth with some fan abroad. 😉 Wish I could have some time for a private schedule. Greetings from Mexico!

  56. A topic for everyone, great idea for clearing out and making sure they find a new home.

  57. A sweet giveaway! Yay! I have my fingers crossed!

  58. April fool’s joke? Hahaha.

  59. Hi all, well after looking at all the posts, I see my chances are quit slim but I still find myself wistfully dreaming of a bundle of books coming in my mail !! I love books, of all kinds!! My email is [email protected] if you need to contact me ;o))

  60. I used to do book reviews for the Canadian Book Review Annual so I could get bundles of books every few months, but I had to stop when I started working full time.
    Fun contest. Will be watching 🙂

  61. Lisa Capehart says

    I love my Kindle, but there’s still nothing quite like a good book! I’d love to win a bundle, probably the inspirational romance. Thanks for sharing like this!

  64. I’m game,count me in! Great idea 😀

  65. Can’t have too many books, can we? A full bookshelf is a sign of intelligence! (or that you buy books you don’t read).

    Count me in for the historical, speculative, or Writer’s Resources!

  66. Sorry, I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to say which type of book I’d like to win, but count me in for any of those (especially Writer’s Resources). 😉

  78. I don’t say this enough, but your blog is extremely helpful! I feel like I’ve learned more from you than I have in all of my writing classes combined. Not even exaggerating! Your blog is definitely one of the main reasons why I feel I’m growing as a writer!!!

    With that said, reading is by far one of my favorite past times as well, and I’d definitely like to enter this giveaway! Thanks for this opportunity!!

  79. What an awesome idea to share your books. If I win, I will pass them on when I’m done reading them. (Writer’s Resources would come in SO handy right now). By the way, love the blog! So many helpful tips. I admit I fall behind sometimes, but I always try to catch up … I don’t want to miss out on such great advice!!! Thanks again 🙂

  80. Love your blog and love that you are sharing your books. I had someone compliment me on one of your posts that I tweeted recently and I made sure to let her know it was all you! Thanks for all you share.

  81. Books! How cool of you to pass on your wealth! Please enter me in the drawing.

  82. I love free stuff and I love your podcast!!!

    Thank you, as always.

  93. Thanks for doing this 🙂 Love your blog!!!

  94. I’d love to win the Christian Living bundle. Thanks for a chance :)!

  95. Thank you for the offer! I recently found your blog and enjoy your posts.

  96. I’m always needing more books! Thanks!

  97. Do we get to choose? I’d like Spec or writing resources (or both, LOL).

  98. Sounds great. I’d be in any of that (but I’m in Australia)

  99. I have a pitifully low stock of books, should probably start collecting 🙂

  100. Wow. That is a million and one comments. But I’ll throw my hat in the barrel. Couldn’t hurt any! You never know what will happen! I love books. So much.

  101. Bookssss! Shiny! Yes please 😀 – UK though 🙁

  102. I wish I could manage to get rid of books! I’m a hoarder and it hurts when I have to get rid of them 🙁 On the plus side, it’s sharing the love, right? (I should look at it that way)

  103. Sigh! That bundle looks amazing! But alas, I’m pretty sure you aren’t wanting to ship a whole bundle of books (no matter how intriguing) all the way to South Africa. I’m already jealous of that winner! Thanks for the blog – it’s ridiculously helpful.

  104. I’d love to be in the contest!

  105. Oh! I would love to win the writing resources or the Christian living!!! I’m going to do something similar on my blog, great idea!!!!

  106. Oh! I would love to win the writing resources or the Christian living!!! I’m going to do something similar on my blog, great idea!!!!

  107. Oh! I would love to win the writing resources or the Christian living!!! I’m going to do something similar on my blog, great idea!!!!

  108. I bought a Nook two Christmases ago because I was running out of shelf space for all my books. Now the Nook is gathering dust and I just purchased another book shelf. There’s no substitute for the printed (and bound) word! I would love more books- though my wife might object. Still, it’s better than my other vice: wine!

  109. Good “old fashioned” paperback books! Love it!

  110. This is very thoughtful of you. As a man who appreciates tools and weaponry, I would like the Writing Resources if selected. 🙂

  111. Thanks for the giveaway! Your writing advice is by far the most helpful out of all the blogs I follow. I’m excited about the writing resources and contemporary fiction.

  112. Always on the lookout for more books. Count me in.

  113. I love what you said in your blog about creating an antagonist your readers can relate to, even if its only on a small level. I struggled with my antagonist/villain for months trying to figure out why he was “bad” and what drove him to keep doing those things that wreaked havoc on my protagonist’s life. And finally inspiration struck and I got it! Anyways, I want to thank you for such helpful blogs. If writers like you didn’t provoke thoughts like relate-able antagonists in the minds of readers like me, I probably would have written a very disappointing villain and passed up a ton of potential for my novel’s plot. Thanks again!

    P.S. Please count me in on the drawing! I’d love a bundle on writing resources.

  114. Books! Such a great giveaway idea.I’m SO glad you didn’t give it to Goodwill.

  115. G’day from an Aussie!
    There are so many on the list I wonder how you will choose?
    I am interested in the history bundle but being in Australia is a disadvantage for postage costs, so would be prepared to pay postage.
    Thankyou so much for sharing such interesting gems of information and helping a whole lot of strangers.

  116. I’m a new fan of your blog. In fact a new writer at age 77. A retired Coast Guard Captain, I finally listened to my daughter who kept urging me to “Dad, you’ve got to write those stories down.” One class (a workshop at the local college and lots of books like your “Outlining Your Novel” (my second favorite book for my novice efffort.) I enjoy your active blog. Lots of good hints. I did get one of my memoirs published in a college literary magazine.
    Love your work

  117. I love your daily questions, and I love contemprary fiction and writing resource books 😉

  118. Hi thanks for the giveaway contest. Looks like great books.

  119. Thank you for this opportunity for a bundle of books. I love your informational videos and have learned so much from you. 🙂

  120. Wow! This is a great idea for a giveaway…are you sure you want to part with all of those amazing books?! ;D Seriously, thank you for the opportunity!

  121. Count me in too! Thanks!

  122. Please count me in for the contest! Thank you! 🙂

  123. I’m in! Hoorrraaayyyy books!

    A lovely offer
    Thank you x

    The Jane Eyre project is intereting. The structure, and main character arc is strikingly similar to that of Kathlenn Woodiwiss’s The Flame and the Flower, commercial romance. CHarles G Davis
