“Shooting for the Moon” part of new Romance bundle

Romance readers, this one is for you. For the Heart is a bundle of six romance novels as well as my hockey romance short story, “Shooting for the Moon.” Even though subscribers to my mailing list–you are one, aren’t you?–already have this story, you can’t go wrong with those six novels for just $3.99.

Young Adult bundle features Offside

If you’ve haven’t read my novel Offside, you’ll never get a better opportunity. (And if you have read it, there’s a great opportunity for you, too.)

Offside is part of an exciting bundle of Young Adult novels called The Light in the Dark YA Bundle. And the neat thing about really good YA is that adults love it, too. (Ever hear of Harry Potter?)

With this bundle, you can spend as little as five dollars and get five novels (including Offside), or spend fifteen and get thirteen novels.

From Allyson Longueira, who curated the bundle:

Each book in this bundle sparks a light in the dark. Sometimes, that light comes from within. Sometimes, the characters must fight back the darkness to find it. And their stories demonstrate the incredible diversity of young adult fiction, from lighthearted and inspirational to dark and gritty.

These eleven fantastically versatile authors provided thirteen books that offer magic, triumph, humor, daring, hardship, and resilience. Sometimes, all in one.

It’s such a great deal, you really can’t go wrong even if you’ve already read Offside. What’s more, you can designate part of the proceeds go to a charity called SMART (Start Making a Reader Today). Since 1992, SMART has been pairing caring adult volunteers with children to provide reading support and books to take home and keep. SMART volunteers read one-on-one with students weekly during the school year, modeling a love of reading and building children’s reading skills and self-confidence in a positive, child-guided environment.

Four(!) simultaneous bundles (almost)

Actually, it’s only three because one ends today and another starts tomorrow, but I’m almost in four bundles at the same time.

The Bump in the Night Thriller Bundle ends today, so snooze any longer and you’ll lose. This bundle includes Fiction River: Pulse Pounders: Adrenaline and 15 other books for $15. That edition of Fiction River includes my short story, “Death in the Serengeti.”

A new bundle called Universe Between, based on the old Twilight Zone theme of “in the middle ground between light and shadow,” includes 10 books for $15. One of those books is Fiction River:Universe Between, which includes my story “One-Night Stands for Love and Glory.”

The third bundle, Crimes, Capers, & Rule-Breakers, is still ongoing and includes my story, “The Beautiful People.” Twenty stories for $3.99.

And starting tomorrow, Ghosts, Phantoms, Wraiths offers twelve ghost stories, including my “She’s No Shimmer,” for $2.99. More on that when it goes live.

 

 

New story part of Fiction River and an awesome bundle

“Death in the Serengeti” is one of my favorite stories for many reasons. It’s a thriller that’s a fun read, it brings me back to my trip of a lifetime to Africa, and it also involves an all-time favorite writing experience.

Let me tell you about that experience.

New York Times bestselling writer Kevin J. Anderson was editing the Fiction River Pulsepounder: Adrenaline anthology, and I submitted “Death in the Serengeti.”  He bought the story and said many very nice things about it, but he also wondered if the tension could be amped up even further.

Long story short, we got together over Thai food and brainstormed the possibilities. As writing experiences go, it doesn’t get much better than brainstorming improvements to your story with a writer of Kevin J. Anderson’s stature and abilities. Just awesome!

So I’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of Fiction River Pulsepounder: Adrenaline, which includes the amped up version of “Death in the Serengeti.” That’s now happening this month.

But the news gets even better.  Kevin J. Anderson has curated the “Bump in the Night Thrillers” bundle, which includes the anthology (and therefore my story) plus fifteen other books. All for just $15!

Yes, sixteen books for fifteen bucks!

The bundle will only be available through August 16, so get it now here.

Here are Kevin J. Anderson’s words about the bundle.

A terrific bundle for a ridiculously low price

Crimes, Capers, & Rule-Breakers

Crimes, Capers, & Rule-Breakers is a new bundle of 20 short stories written by some awesome writers. It includes my story, “The Beautiful People.”  And for a limited time, you can pre-order it for just 99 cents, a bargain of ridiculous proportions. The price will go up (I believe on the actual launch date of July 11), so pre-order today.

Sometimes, you gotta be bad.

Steal away with this bundle of thieves and miscreants and join them on their criminal adventures! From burglars to assassins, grifters to con artists, these are mysteries from the other side, from the criminal point-of-view.

Break some rules and snag the Crimes, Capers, & Rule-Breakers Bundle today!

I can provide personalized copies at the following reduced prices. For any combination of books, the cost is $13 for the first, $25 for any two, $36 for three, $46 for four, and $56 for five.
