Books That Go Bump in the Night!

If you’re ready for summer thrills and chills (ones that don’t even require air conditioning), I’m happy to show off the brand new “Bump in the Night Thrillers” storybundle, which just launched today. Sixteen suspenseful, fun, and entertaining reads.

You name your own price, get the eBooks via instant download in your preferred format. You support indie authors, and a portion of the proceeds goes directly to charity, to support the worthy cause of the Challenger Learning Centers for Space Science Education.

The bundle books include compelling urban fantasy reads with some of the strangest detectives you’ve ever met, including Dan Shamble Zombie P.I. in Kevin J. Anderson’s Unnatural Acts, as well as ghosts, elves, vampires, sorceresses, modern-day dragon slayers, immortal Shakespearean characters, and more in Dean Wesley Smith’s The Deep Sunset, R.R. Virdi’s Grave Beginnings, Patrick Hester’s Into the Fire, Susan Sizemore’s Living Dead Girl, J.A. Pitt’s Night Terrors, L. Jagi Lamplighter’s Prospero Lost, Alex Berg’s Red Hot Steele and Cold Hard Steele.

For thrilling adventures in other times and places, there’s Death Wind by Travis Heermann and Jim Pinto and Lady Sherlock by Brooks Wachtel. For straight suspense with a high-tech or a darker edge, you’ll enjoy the Daredevils Club novel Artifact by Kevin J. Anderson, F. Paul Wilson, Matthew J. Costello, and Janet Berliner, and The Demon in Business Class by Anthony Dobranski, Whack Job by Mike Baron, and The Devil’s Churn by Kristine Kathryn Rusch.

If you like all kinds of fast-paced fiction, there’s the new Fiction River anthology Pulse Pounders 2: Adrenaline — which includes my story Egg Thief!

This bundle is only available through August 16. Get a huge bundle of reading material, help support indie authors, as well as the Challenger Center.

THE SF&F BINGE READER BUNDLE

bundle-bundle-ad-192

The Bundle Bundle – Curated by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Binge readers! You wanted summer reading, right? You hate the sixty seconds it takes to download the next book in a series you just discovered. You want to turn the virtual page and get back into the story.

Well, then, do I have a deal for you. A bundle of bundles. Here’s your summer reading in one gigantic package, wrapped in a virtual bow.

Okay. There’s no bow, no wrapping. Just a wealth of great fiction.

Usually, StoryBundle provides bundles of books, individual titles by individual authors who band together to provide a great reading bundle.

This time, individual authors and editors have banded together with bundled books to give you the deal of the summer.

By my count (and I might be a bit math-challenged), you get 19 standalone novels in this bundle. Some of the novels are long, and some of them are short. But 19 novels! Plus more short stories than I’m willing to count, wrapped in 7 anthologies and a gigantic bundle that is bigger than your average anthology.

What kind of fiction will you find here? Science fiction and fantasy only, but written in such a way as to blur the lines of genre. You’ll find books in which high-tech gaming meets the world of faerie, books which hack reality (and involve crime lords!), time travel to the Old West, wreck diving in space, space pirates (!), librarian witches (complete with feline familiars), and the Fates—who just got fired.

And that’s just the novels. The short stories cover the entire fantasy genre (with a bit of sf). They take us back to fairie, give us great urban fantasy, (sometimes on motorcycles), and provide a short introduction to some of the best writers working today, including Seanan McGuire, Dave Farland, Jane Yolen, and Esther M. Friesner.

The bundles also form mini bundles of their own. If you like adventurous science fiction, start with these bundles: The Science Officer Omnibus, and The Diving Series Starter Bundle. If you had a tough few months and want books that will make you smile, start with The Washington Witches, The Thunder Mountain Series Starter Kit, and The Fates Trilogy. If you want to focus on gaming or the digital universe, try The Digital Sea Trilogy and The Feyguard Books. And if you’re in a short story mood, we have the Fiction River Fantasy Bundle, the first year of the acclaimed Uncollected Anthology, and Faerie Summer.

Convinced? Find this amazing deal at StoryBundle!

New Releases!

WDM Publishing has released two new short stories. One from Debbie Mumford and one from Deb Logan! I’m really excited to see both of these out in the wild 😀 I hope you’ll enjoy reading them!

First, Debbie Mumford gives us a paranormal mystery centering on the legends of seventh sons of seventh sons. But is it a legend … and does it only concern sons?

SEVENTH
by Debbie Mumford
Audience: Paranormal Mystery | General Audience | Short Story

Detective Gus Collier has seen a lot of corpses, but he’s never had one open its eyes, grab his wrist, and speak to him. But that’s exactly what happens when he’s called to investigate a murder on the morning of his twenty-eighth birthday. Twenty-eight. Seven quadrupled. Gus has been taunted all his life about being a legendary seventh son of a seventh son, but he’s always been able to brush it off. He’s a perfectly normal guy. At least, he’d always thought so … until today.

Next, Deb Logan presents a contemporary fairy tale, loosely based on Sleeping Beauty. Did I say loosely? Let’s make that very loosely 😀

BEAUTY OR BUTTERFACE?
by Deb Logan
Audience: Fantasy | Teen | Short Story

Prince Philip’s father is ready for a grandchild, which means Philip has to marry. Immediately, if not sooner. Great. The most important decision of Philip’s life, and Dad wants him to make it NOW. When Philip doesn’t act fast enough to suit the king, his father writes Philip’s marriage into a treaty with the neighboring kingdom. All Philip has to do is visit King Stefan and choose between his twin daughters. What could be easier? NOT!
