A Happy Holidays Gift From WMG Publishing

Actually, Two Gifts…

WMG Publishing this year, for the very first time in the almost ten year history of the company, is doing two special holiday reading mystery boxes.

Both have over $250 in value of books for $50.00. (Yup, I said that.)

The Writer Gift Box has a lecture, a classic workshop, and 12 different writing books in it. All for $50.00 (just the lecture and the classic workshop are worth $200 alone. Person who gets the box gets to pick the choice of classic workshop or lecture.)

The Holiday Gift Box includes 40 ebooks (novels, novellas, short-story collections, magazines, boxed sets, bundles, and a sampling of something from each of WMG’s 33 series).

That’s right, 33 series and over 40 titles. Value over $250 for only $50.

And you can give these as gifts, of course. Once you pay for the mystery box, you can designate who and where it is to be sent on the 20th.

Both of these are Available until noon PST December 19. Delivery on December 20.

So don’t miss these, guys. I am stunned WMG Publishing can do this. But wow is it cool!

And what a great way to get your new year writing and learning off with a bang with 12 writing books, a classic workshop, and a lecture. Can’t beat that.

    With the Writers’ Gift Box, are the workshop and Lecture picked at random or does the writer get to pick them? I’m guessing they’re random because of the name, but I wanted to make sure.

    • dwsmith

      Nope, writer gets to pick them. Bacically what is included in the mystery box is a credit for a classic workshop and a credit for any lecture.

    Hi, Dean.
    This sounds like fun!
    Does the recipient get to choose the lecture and the classic workshop, or is it predetermined?

    • dwsmith

      Yes, the choice of classic workshop and lecture is up to the person who gets the box, and can be used at any time into the future.

  • Thomas Bennett

    A few questions:

    Can we buy both boxes? Can we use a credit card instead of PayPal?

    And if we buy the surprise gift box, do we get the e-book versions as well as the paperback versions of those books?

    • dwsmith

      These are only ebook, not paperbacks. They just fixed the language on the page to make that very clear. I will fix it on what I did last night as well. And yes, you can buy both boxes and extras to send to friends. And you can use credit cards on Paypal. Everything is sent out on the 20th of December.

    • dwsmith

      Nope, only a classic workshop and a lecture comes with the gift package. Depth is a regular six week workshop we offer every month.

    So, I’ve purchased the writer’s gift box, and I’m excited about the lecture and classic workshop and books. Eeeee!

    How do we get our gifts? I sort of feel like the kid in the back seat: are we there yet?

    • dwsmith

      All the ebooks will be sent out on the 20th of December. The credits for the classic workshop and lecture will be recorded at that point and instructions on how to write me to get the choice of each you would like will be included. It’s a fantastic deal, isn’t it? And the regular fiction one is even better.
