The Storybundle Write Stuff Bundle

Our friends over at Storybundle have a special deal that's about to expire — you can get 11 books on writing for the price of one, plus a 40% off discount code for Jutoh, the ebook publishing tool.

Storybundle is a site created by a former Lifehacker writer, and a personal friend of mine. They bundle together ebooks from indie authors into a single package, and you can choose how much you'd like to pay. You can also choose how much goes to the writers, and how much goes to Storybundle. And you can pay with Paypal or Amazon to make things easy.
All of the books can be downloaded and synced to any tablet or ebook reader, and if you have a Kindle, they can send them directly to your Kindle without any syncing required. They are all DRM-free, so you can read them anywhere without being locked in to a device.
If you want to support authors and read great ebooks, Storybundle is definitely a great choice.
