Special Holiday Offer!

Happy two days before Christmas!

Have all your holiday shopping done? Did I just give you a panic attack by mentioning holiday shopping? Did you just remember someone you inadvertently forgot to check off your gift-giving list, and now there’s no way you can get a present delivered in time?

Well, do I have a deal for you!

(Okay, okay, I’ll stop with the used car salesman voice.)

Seriously, though, if you have a reader on your list, or just a person who loves Christmas movies and Christmas music and maybe even a little Christmas mayhem, the Good Cheer Holiday Bundle makes an excellent gift that doesn’t rely on the poor, overworked and overwhelmed package delivery services to arrive on time for the holiday. It’s a great, low-cost gift that will gives hours of social-distancing enjoyment for that special person on your list. PLUS it’s easy to give the bundle as a gift—there’s a button that asks if you’re giving the bundle as a gift. You just have to click that button, and voila! Gift giving made easy. And at this time of the year, easy is good, right?

AND I have an extra-special deal for you, too!!

FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY, if you purchase a copy of the Good Cheer Holiday Bundle for yourself or someone on your gift-giving list, you can get a FREE!! copy of my new collection Unexpected Holidays.

(Yes, I promised to nix used car salesman voice. Oops.)

How do you get your free copy of Unexpected Holidays?

Simple!

Just shoot me an email to annie DOT reed DOT writer AT gmail DOT com. (Substitute in the . and @ in that email address – you know the score. *g*)  Attach or embed a copy of your receipt from Storybundle to your email, and I’ll send you a link where you can download your free copy of Unexpected Holidays.

This offer’s good until the Good Cheer Holiday Bundle goes away. If you’re too busy to email me until after Christmas, don’t worry. I’ll still honor your purchase and send you a totally free copy of Unexpected Holidays for your post-Christmas, self-care reading enjoyment.

Happy holidays, everyone!!

(And stay safe out there, okay?)

Twist of a Knife special offer!

How’s your Small Business Saturday going? I hope you’ve gotten a lot of shopping done at your favorite independent, locally owned stores. Local businesses can really use the support, especially during this holiday shopping season. If you can, please purchase online, or if you can’t and have to shop in person, please wear a mask, wash your hands often, and follow social distancing guidelines so that you and your loved ones will still be around for Christmas.

Speaking of Small Business Saturday shopping, I’d like to remind you that independent and small press publishers are small businesses too, and so is Storybundle.  I’m lucky enough to be in two bundles going on right now, although the Twist of a Knife Bundle is going away in only five more days!

My contribution to the Twist of a Knife Bundle is early edition of my short story collection Unexpected Criminals, which isn’t available anywhere else! With this bundle, you not only get an early look at some of my favorite crime stories, you get some really nifty fiction from some of my favorite mystery writers. These books run the gamut from cozy mysteries to gritty noir to hit lady to the best twisted mysteries featured in Pulphouse Fiction Magazine, including my unexpected spy story, “The Geezer Squad.” (See what I did there?)

For as little as $15 you can get all ten books in this bundle, plus support a great charity.  But hurry, because The Twist of a Knife Storybundle’s going away in just five more days.

PLUS, because this is the season for holiday specials, I’d like to throw in a little extra incentive – an added bonus if you’ve purchased the bundle.

From now until the end of the bundle, I’m going to throw in an extra collection—call it a companion collection to Unexpected Criminals for FREE!  This one is Unexpected Good Guys.

Both Unexpected Criminals and Unexpected Good Guys won’t be available for sale until next year, but for a limited time you can get both collections by purchasing the Twist of a Knife Storybundle.

So how do you get your free copy of Unexpected Good Guys?

Simple!

Just shoot me an email to annie DOT reed DOT writer AT gmail DOT com. (Substitute in the . and @ in that email address – you know the score. *g*)  Attach or embed a copy of your receipt from Storybundle to your email, and I’ll send you back a link where you can download your free copy of Unexpected Good Guys.

But don’t delay!  This offer – along with the bundle – is only available for another five days.

I’ll be back on Monday to talk about the other great bundle I’m in this holiday season! Stay tuned!

Reminder about a Great Bundle!

I feel a little odd about promoting a Storybundle during this particular point in time, but this bundle’s special.

I’m talking about the Young Adult Megabundle.

Like all Storybundles, you pay what you want. But for this bundle, the minimum payment’s only a dollar, and for that you get all these books, including my novel Faster.

Plus half the proceeds from this bundle go to support Mighty Writers, a non-profit organization benefiting children’s literacy that is also doing some important food security outreach right now for the disadvantaged population it serves.  That’s the kind of charity I’m proud to support.

To sweeten the pot, for the last six days of this bundle — (YES, IT’S ONLY AVAILABLE FOR SIX MORE DAYS!!) — I’m throwing in a free copy of my story “Hunted” which in a behind-the-scenes prequel to Faster.  You don’t even have to tell me that you’ve purchased a copy of the bundle.  Just head on over to my Free Stuff page to read the story.  And then check out the Young Adult Megabundle.  You don’t need to be a young adult to enjoy these books, just a fan of great writing.

Cats! Storybundle promotion!

The Cats! Bundle Thank You Promotion!

If you’ve purchased a copy of the Cats! Bundle, I want to take a moment to Thank You!!

And offer you a special added bonus.

If you’ve purchased the Cats! Bundle, I’m going to throw in a free copy of my superhero origin novel Faster! This goes for anyone who’s purchased the Cats! Bundle, so if you haven’t already purchased the Bundle, don’t wait! Storybundles don’t last forever, and this one’s about to go away in only ten more days.

Jackson’s not a normal high school kid, but he has no idea just how special he is.

Stuck in the foster system with a body that’s slowly betraying him, Jackson struggles just to make it through every day without attracting attention.

Attention from doctors who can’t fix him. Attention from foster parents who can’t cope with a kid in a wheelchair. Attention from bullies who pick on the weak.

He especially doesn’t want to attract the attention of a star football player who could snap Jackson in two without breaking a sweat, but it looks like that’s not going to happen.

And he can’t do a thing about it.

Or can he?

So how do you get your free copy of Faster?

Simple!

Just shoot me an email to annie DOT reed DOT writer AT gmail DOT com. (Substitute in the . and @ in that email address – you know the score. *g*)  Attach or embed a copy of your receipt from Storybundle to your email, and I’ll send you back a link where you can download your free copy of Faster.

Easy peasy, right?

Don’t delay, though!  This offer, along with the bundle, is only available for a short time.

Special Promotion!

Visions of the Future Special Promotion!

Have I got a deal for you!

If you’ve been waiting to purchase your copy of Visions of the Future, wait no longer!

Storybundles don’t last forever, and this one’s about to go away in only eight more days. To sweeten the deal (as if Storybundles aren’t already a killer deal), I’m going to throw in a free copy of my near-future novella In Dreams for everyone who buys Visions of the Future starting today through the end of the bundle.

A near-future tale of love, loss, and redemption.

Nature videographer Jerome and his lover Andy, an environmental activist, dedicated their lives to rescuing the planet from the disasterous policies of generations past. Just when their efforts began to make a difference, Andy lost his life at sea.

Or did he?

A mysterious man has entered Jerome’s lonely, solitary life. A man who wears Andy’s face but has none of his memories. A man who’s haunted by an unknown presence that cloaks itself in the fog.

And watches.

So how do you get your free copy of In Dreams?

Simple!

Just shoot me an email to annie DOT reed DOT writer AT gmail DOT com. (Substitute in the . and @ in that email address – you know the score. *g*)  Attach a copy of your receipt from Storybundle to your email, and I’ll send you back a link where you can download your free copy of In Dreams.

Easy peasy, right?

Don’t delay, though!  This offer, along with the bundle, is only available for a short time.

And if you’d like a little more information about Visions of the Future, be sure to read Ron Collins’ blog post about his novel Wakers and the other writers in the bundle (in which he says embarrassingly nice things about me).
