Book News: SFWA “Spacetime” book bundle coming soon!

I don’t know about you, but when things start to get covered in pollen, I like to curl up inside with a good book.  (I also like to curl up with a good book when it’s cold out, or when I’m on the beach.  Or on a train.  Or avoiding the rain….)

The SFWA – that’s Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America – feel our Claritin pain.  And they’re ready to help us out by giving us a bundle o’ books. And when I mean bundle, I mean BUNDLE. Great books like Don Sakers’ A Rose from Old Terra, Cygnus Rising by Craig Martelle, and Fluency by Jennifer Foehner Wells.  Basically there’s something for everyone here, and a whole lot of really good stuff.  It’s what you’d expect from the folks that give us the Nebula Awards?

The best part of all?  You get to set the price you want to pay!  That’s right – much like Humble Bundle, it’s all up to you.  So no crying poormouth this time; you want ’em?  You can have ’em!

This bundle will be available from May 9th through May 24th, 2018, so mark your calendars! Read on for the full list of incredible books!

For Immediate Release

A bundle so packed full of space opera we had to assemble it in orbit.

Featuring New York Times Bestselling authors Michael Cooper, Mike Shepard, and Felix R. Savage, USA Today Bestselling Author Kevin McLaughlin, International Bestselling Authors Glynn Stewart, Craig Martelle, Jennifer Foehner Wells, Terry Mixon, Amy DuBoff, and more!

SFWA will make the storybundle available from May 9th thru May 24th.

StoryBundle is a way for people who love to read to discover quality indie books written by indie authors. You know how it’s always hard to find something good to read? StoryBundle hopes to solve that.

We take a handful of books and group them together to offer as a bundle. Then you, the reader, can take a look at the titles we’ve chosen and decide how much you’d like to pay. Think of us like a friend that scours independent books for undiscovered gems, then bundles these titles together for one low price that you decide. Yeah, we mean it; you get to set the price that you want to pay!
