Win this Awesome Writing & Learning Bundle: Software & Courses

Author Stash Writing & Learning Bundle Contest – Scrivener & Courses!

Hey Authors, Writers, Indies & Self Pubbers! We have another awesome giveaway for this month (worth over $225) for the lucky winners (2 winners).

The Prize

The prize is sure to make you a Rockstar writer with near superhero status. You’ll be able to leap over outlines in a single bound, format faster than a speeding bullet and melt Kindle sales with your mind.

Does this all sound too good to be true? It’s not, not with the resources we’re giving away this month!

Here’s what you’ll win:

  • Copy of Scrivener Software for  Windows or MAC

  • Free Training Course: Learn Scrivener with Scrivener Simplified (This is the highest rated Scrivener course on Udemy)

  • Free Training Course: Kindle Launch Plan by Nick Loper of Side Hustle Nation

How can all these prizes make you an indestructible writer?

Sometimes the evil Blank Page threatens to suck every ounce of creativity from your mind. This super-villain will lurk, unassumingly, waiting for you to open your binder, Word document, or Google Doc – whatever you currently use.

That’s when he’ll pounce. With a mocking laugh, his blank white face glowing in the darkness, he dares you to start typing. “Write your outline!” he’ll taunt. “I dare you to write your first paragraph.” He hisses.



Nothing. He has already won before you start. It’s hopeless – or so you think.

There’s hope and we’re giving you that hope this month in the form of writing software and digital courses on Udemy.

What is Scrivener?

Scrivener is a powerful content-generation (and outlining) tool for writers that allows you to concentrate on your creative outlet – writing – and not on the details of formatting and structure. Scrivener is designed by writers, for writers.

Its goal is to make it easy to control the formatting and get to the end of that awkward first draft. It does this by taking the tool out of the picture while you write by making it easy to organize your thoughts and write your book.

Scrivener is a downloadable software that’s available for both Windows or MAC computers. Normal retail price for this awesome software is $40 for a “family license”.

Why would you need the Scrivener Simplified training?

That’s like asking why Superman and Batman had to train and practice… because it makes them stronger!

Scrivener is easy to use but is incredibly powerful. With the power comes some level of complexity (and, as they say, responsibility). Much like other well-known office productivity software, users rarely know or utilize it to the full potential.

If you want to take your writing to the next level you need next-level understanding of the incredible software. Scrivener Simplified is the training that helps you unlock that superhero potential buried within the software. Learn how to harness it and you can save the world from what would have been mediocre prose.

This training course is normally $20.

What’s so great about Nick Loper’s Kindle Launch Plan Udemy Course?

Now that you have unlocked the power of Scrivener and yourself what should you do with it? DO GOOD WITH IT!

The best way to do good with your power is to write a compelling book and publish it for the world. Nick Loper’s Kindle Launch Plan will take you through the steps required to format your book and get it loaded on Amazon.

Then comes the all-important launch – this is what can propel your book from being just another “cover in the crowd” to hero status. Nick’s course is normally $50!

Then you can destroy Blank Page over and over again. You win!
