I think I'm supposed to "stack the shelves" on Saturday, but this is what I've got today, so here are the books I've just acquired - all e-books from WMG Publishing (will explain below).
Kris Rusch and her husband Dean Wesley Smith are both prolific writers, in all kinds of genres. They host writing workshops and blog about the business of writing and generally are a great resources for all levels of writers.
(Now fair warning, they are both very opinionated. So take the meat, spit out the gristle, if you know what I mean.)
At any rate, they have their own publishing house, WMG Publishing, and put together bargain bundles all the time. They also create Kickstarter events for launching new projects. They just finished one called "Crimes Collide." I backed the project at $30 which won me the 5-volume set of 100 mystery stories by Kris and Dean (so basically $6 an ebook).
But wait, there's more. Because the project met its fundraising goal, Kris and Dean offered incentives in the form of stretch goals. In other words, the higher the project's backing gets the more rewards everyone receives. And so that's where all the bonus e-books (shown above) came from.
I think I get some free writers workshops as well for backing the campaign. Pretty fun. If you haven't backed a project on Kickstarter, you should think about giving it a try. Some interesting ventures there.
What have you recently aquired? Any new books stacking your shelves? Comment below and let me know how you've obtained them. (The local DAV has paperbacks for 10 cents, so that is so tempting! I'll tell you about some past hauls in future posts!) Until then, happy reading!
