From October 18th - November 7th, Storybundle.com is offering The Halloween Horror Bundle, a package which showcases eight eBooks from eight authors. The bundle features not just experienced award winners, but also some new talent, so you get a nice mix.
Like the company's previous offerings of this type, you decide how much of your money you want to go to supporting the authros, as well as choosing for a portion of the proceeds to go to one of two charities. All of the eBooks are DRM free and can be read on about any ereader, tablet, smartphone or laptop.
From the press release:
Collectively, our authors featured in this bundle include multiple Bram Stoker Award nominees and winners, multiple International Horror Guild Award nominees and winners, New York Times bestsellers, a Nebula Award nominee, and a former president of the Horror Writers Association, the world’s largest organization of professional horror writers. In other words, quality writers with quality offerings, all at a pay-what-you-want-price! The books include:
- Riverwatch by Joseph Nassise
- Blaze of Glory by Weston Ochse
- Vicarious by Jon F. Merz
- The Drought by Patricia Fulton
- The Latent Dark by Martin Kee
- Taking on the Dead by Annie Walls
If you pay more than the bonus price of just $9, you get two bonus books, which are:
- Coming of Age by Douglas Clegg
- Resurrection Inc. by Kevin J. Anderson
“When Storybundle’s founder Jason Chen asked me to curate the Halloween Horror Bundle, I was thrilled,” says internationally bestselling author, Joseph Nassise. “I’ve been involved in the genre throughout my entire career, having been nominated for both the Bram Stoker Award and the International Horror Guild Award and even serving two terms as president of the Horror Writers Association, the world largest group of professional horror writers, and I was excited about being able to showcase both the breadth and scope of modern horror fiction to the Storybundle audience."
“My selection criterion was simple – I wanted quality writers who approached the genre in diverse ways – and I think I’ve delivered a package that has something of interest for every horror fan out there as a result. There’s no question that the writing speaks for itself; from Patricia Fulton’s debut The Drough to the reissue of New York Times bestseller Kevin J Anderson’s Resurrection Inc., these are books that can stand on their own two feet and have the accolades to prove it. Likewise, the diversity is equally exciting, as we’ve got everything from the steampunk horror of Martin Kee’s A Latant Dark to the thrilleresque darkness of Vicarious by Jon F. Merz. One of our bonus titles, Douglas Clegg’s Coming of Age, is a literal workshop in the power of the novella in modern horror. There’s something here for everyone.”
The bonus book deal is the route I'm going for sure. I would have dropped at least $10 on this anyway, but getting the two additional for doing so is icing. So much so, I plan on dropping more. You should too, it's going to a good cause either way. So get on over to Storybundle.com and get your read on.
