The Holiday Collections

I am so very pleased that my Christmas Magic: Three Romantic Holiday Tales is part of StoryBundle’s Holiday Collections. The bundle consists of 11 collections of holiday short stories ranging from sweet romance to horror. In all, there are 72 short stories, by very talented writers.

StoryBundle’s Holiday Collections

Dean Wesley Smith, the curator of the Holiday Collections bundle, says “Wow, is this bundle going to be fun. Fantastic writers and 72 different holiday short stories. That’s right. 72. And you can get all of them for one low price that works out to about 20 cents per story.” You can read his entire essay and check out each of the collections at https://storybundle.com/holiday.

I’ve already started reading and you should, too. The bundle is available until the end of the month, then it disappears. Don’t wait–this is the perfect reading to get you in the holiday mood–whatever mood that happens to be.

The Realms of Faerie Bundle

I’m thrilled that Midwinter Fae (in which I have a story) is part of StoryBundle’s The Realm of Faerie bundle, curated by Jamie Ferguson. You can choose how much you want to pay for up to 13 novels, anthologies and collections! Hard to beat that deal.

Beauty and Wickedness anthology

Beauty and Wickedness, the first volume in the Ever After Fairy Tales series, edited by Jamie Ferguson, is now available everywhere ebooks are sold: http://books2read.com/beauty-and-wickedness

Even in this modern world, the heart still recognizes the power and mystery to be found in a fairy tale.

In Beauty and Wickedness, sixteen authors retell and reimagine some of the most enchanting fairy tales ever told. Within these pages, you’ll find beauty and treachery, magic and courage, innocence and wickedness…and at least some happy endings. And I am stoked to be in a table of contents with so many fine writers:

Midwinter Fae

I’m so very pleased to be part of this new anthology edited by Jamie Ferguson. It features 19 tales of faeries and magic at Midwinter.

On the day of the shortened sun
A battle between two kings has begun. 
The old year dies, and the Oak King rules
We celebrate with logs of Yule! 
But the Holly King is defeated, not dead 
To Caer Arianrhod he heads. 
Until Midsummer, when they battle again 
And the Holly King will once again reign…

It features “Midwinter Run,” my brand new short story, plus stories by Dalye A. Dermatis, Diana Benedict, Leah Cutter, Leslie Claire Walker, Eric Kent Edstrom, Ron Collins, Rei Rosenquist, Karen L. Abrahamson, Deanna Knippling, Anthea Sharp, Deb Logan, T. Thorn Coyle, Jamie Ferguson, Kristine Katherine Rusch, Rebecca Senese, Stefon Mears, Brigid Collins and Alexandra Brandt.

All that, and a gorgeous cover, too!
