No, it doesn’t mean the end of the world. It usually means they are combining might to help for a charitable cause.
The StoryBundle is one such place where that happens. And it is happening right now—for the next two days, as a matter of fact. It is an Epic Fantasy Bundle featuring stories by writers Kevin J. Anderson, David Farland, Brandon Sanderson, Neil Gaiman, James A. Owen, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Peter David, Tracy Hickman, and Peter J. Wacks & Mark Ryan. You can read more about the stories HERE.
This is a wonderful deal. First, you help these writers. As the reader and buyer, you get to decide how many you buy the books for and how that money is divvied up (you can choose to send some to StoryBundle itself and/or the writers). If you spend more than $12, you can three additional books. And the best part: You can choose to send your contribution money to three different charities.
Everyone wins. It’s a great way to expose yourself to new writers (”And you don’t want us exposing ourselves, do you?”) and help the world become a better place!
Here is more information about StoryBundle:
I highly recommend StoryBundle to anyone looking for a great bundle of fiction who likes to give to charity! I hate to admit this but I haven’t read The Monarch in the Glen by Neil Gaiman because, at the time Legends II published, I had not read American Gods. Well, that’s changed and now I get to enjoy a new Gaiman piece of writing! Awesome!
I hope you’ll consider this great StoryBundle! And spread word about it since it ends in 2 days!
