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.

Bundles!

Bundles galore!

I’m participating in not one, not two, but three terrific Storybundles going on right now!  If you’re looking for some great reading to keep your mind occupied with all the craziness going on in the world, look no further!

I love a good mystery, and the Mysterious Women bundle features ten of them!  Well, more than ten since a couple of the books in this bundle are story collections.  All the books are by kickass women writers.  My contribution is Paper Bullets, the second book in my Abby Maxon mystery series.  I’m busy working on the third book — Private Affairs — so this bundle’s a great way to catch up with Abby Maxon. If you haven’t read Protectors by Kris Nelscott or one of Juliet Nordeen’s Modesta Quinn mysteries or Christy Fifield’s Spy Girls stories about female spies in World War II, this is a great opportunity to pick up all these books at a great low price! And you’ll have an opportunity to support a great charity — Able Gamers — by donating a portion of your purchase price (I hope you do).

The Mysterious Women bundle goes away in only 9 days, so don’t delay!

~~~

If mystery’s not your thing, or if your tastes run more to science fiction adventure, Kevin J. Anderson’s put together a nifty bundle that’s right up your alley!

I don’t have a book in this bundle, but I do have a story in Snot-Nosed Aliens.  Every story in that book’s a hoot.  Where else could you read a story called “Bushtits Gone Wild”? That’s by Stephanie Writt, by the way, and if you haven’t read any of Stephanie’s stories, you really should.  Snot-Nosed Aliens also includes stories by Michael Warren Lucas, J. Steven York, Dayle A. Dermatis, and David H. Hendrickson, among others.

And if that’s not enough to convince you to pick up the Far, Far Away Adventure SF Bundle, which goes away in only 16 days, this bundle also includes a great Retrieval Artist novel by Kristine Kathryn Rusch – Recovery Man’s Bargain (I love the Retrieval Artist series!), an awesome Thunder Mountain novel by Dean Wesley Smith – Lake Roosevelt, and a beautiful new edition of H. G. Wells’ The Complete War of the Worlds!  The 13 books in this bundle are well worth the low Storybundle price. Plus, you can support The Challenger Center for Space Exploration by donating a portion of your purchase price to this great charity!

~~~

But what if you have a young reader at home who’s jonesing for something to read?  And if your budget’s tight (like most of us) and you’re looking for a great bargain, look no further than the YA Megabundle!

This bundle’s special.  Thanks to all the amazing writers and the fine folks at Storybundle, you can pick up the 28 books in this bundle for whatever you want!  Plus, we’ve set the minimum price for this bundle at the ridiculously low price of one dollar.  If you’re in a position to pay a little more, that’s great, and here’s why: half of the profits from this bundle are going to Mighty Writers, a non-profit organization benefitting children’s literacy that’s also working in food security outreach right now with the disadvantaged population it serves.

The YA Megabundle features books by NYT and USA Today bestselling authors and spans a wide variety of SF/F genres.  My contribution is my superhero origin novel Faster.

Another way this bundle’s special: it’s not going away right away. You’ve got another 53 days to snap this one up, but it’s such a great value, why delay?

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.

Exciting new releases!

Exciting times we live in, right?

A car just drove down my street. I don’t live in a high traffic area, so cars don’t drive down from the top of the hill often, but it made me realize how few cars I’ve seen when I’ve been out and about lately.

Like a lot of people, I’m staying home as much as possible. The last time I ventured out, I went to one grocery store, got there early, found most of what I needed, and came home early.  I tend to be a homebody anyway, but it’s weird staying home because I’m supposed to, not because I want to.

Although the family and I are starting to catch up on a lot of the series we’ve DVR’d. [WTF Evil?? Did you really plan to emasculate a totally great villain or what? Sheesh!]

I know some people are using the down time to catch up on their reading. If you’re like me, you have a huge TBR pile. But what if you don’t? What if you’d like something new to take your mind away from all the craziness of these “exciting” times?

Have I got a deal for you! [cue used car salesman voice]

Now, for a limited time only, Storybundle presents The Cats! Bundle!

Our furry feline friends have not only invaded memes and videos on your social media of choice, now they’ve invaded Storybundle!

[/end used car salesman voice]

Whew! I can only do that just so long.

Seriously, though—I’m really excited to be a part of this bundle. My collection Life With Cats is exclusive to this Bundle, but that’s not the only exclusive I’m in.  I have a brand new cat story in Cat Ladies of the Apocalypse, a spanking new anthology (not available elsewhere) that turns the “boy and his dog” post-apocalyptic tales on their… well, tails.  Plus, I have a story in Fiction River Presents: Cats!, also exclusive to this bundle.

I’ve been a cat person all my life. Haven’t turned into the crazy old cat lady down the street yet, but give me time. If you’re like me and harbor a love, secret or otherwise, for kitties of all flavors, grab this Storybundle today.  For as little as $5, you can get four of the books in this bundle, including Fiction River Presents: Cats!  But for as little as $15, you can get all ten books in this bundle, including not only exclusives like Life With Cats and Cat Ladies of the Apocalypse, but also exclusives by Dean Wesley Smith, Lisa Silverthorne, and Stefon Mears.  None of these books are available elsewhere.

All of the authors in this bundle have not only banded together to bring you great cat stories at a terrific low price, we’re also supporting Able Gamers. We’re stuck inside for what (hopefully) will only be a relatively short time. For most of us, we can read or play video games or otherwise distract ourselves without too much effort. Many disabled folks have to contend with much harsher conditions on a daily basis. Able Gamers helps them participate in online games by providing equipment tailored toward their needs. If you decide to purchase a bundle, I hope you’ll also add a donation to help support Able Gamers. Every dollar counts.

~~

If your reading tastes don’t trend towards cats, or if you’d like your fiction a little more on the dark side, I’ve got a brand new collection just for you!

This collection focuses on shapeshifters of all types.  Changelings. Were-creatures. Beings who live in the shadows, hiding their true selves from the world.

This six-story collection’s available in ebook form for $2.99 US from your favorite distributors.

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).

New Releases!

What have I been up to since the holidays, you ask? Good question! As it turns out, I’ve been fairly busy on the writing and publishing front, so I’ve got a lot of stuff to talk to you about.

First and foremost, I’m delighted to be part of a brand new science fiction Storybundle, Visions of the Futurehttps://storybundle.com/scifi  (I’m including URLs in this post in case the links don’t work, since I’m having a heck of a time with links this morning.)

Look at the writers in this bundle! Wow! Is this an amazing lineup or what!

Yes, I’m overusing exclamation points, but holy cow. Not only does this bundle offer a wide variety of bestselling authors, but you’ve got a whole spectrum of science fiction to choose from, from military scifi to post-apocalyptic to far future to space opera to the totally unique visions of Bob Jeschonek and Leah Cutter–and then you’ve got the awesome Retrieval Artist series and the prequel to The Seeders Universe series.

And four of these books are Storybundle exclusives, including my book, the expanded edition of The Forever Soldier and Other Future Tales, which is now nearly twice the size of the original edition I published back in 2011 and includes the award-winning story “The Shape of a Name.”

As always, Storybundles offer readers a choice on what to pay and whether to donate a portion of the proceeds to a worthy charity.  This time around, we’re supporting AbleGamers.  But Storybundles are only around for a short time, so don’t delay!

I hope you participate in the bundle (https://storybundle.com/scifi) and that you support our charity.  And if you do, stay tuned to these pages for a special offer from me next week. (Yes, I promise – next week.)

~~~

What else have I been up to? Thanks for asking! I’ve got a brand new collection out just in time for Valentine’s Day.

MAGIC FROM THE HEART (https://books2read.com/u/3k1WBW) is for the romantic in all of us.   Love—in all its various forms—and magic go hand in hand in these heartwarming stories.

Want a sneak peek at the types of stories you’ll find in MAGIC FROM THE HEART?  For a limited time, “The Library of Orphaned Hearts” from the collection is free to read on my website.

Collected here for the first time, these ten stories are available for the low price of $3.99US. (https://books2read.com/u/3k1WBW)

~~~

That’s not all I’ve been up to. I’ve got a brand new Uncollected Anthology story available. “Room 308” is part of the The Crossroads Hotel, the Uncollected Anthology’s 20th issue!

For our 20th issue, we decided to do something a little different. Not only do we have a common theme among all the stories, we have a common setting — the Crossroads Hotel, a place where anything can (and does) happen.

“Room 308” tells the story of Claire, an entertainer who’s misused magic in her act just to keep herself employed. Twenty-five years ago, she made a promise in room 308. This Christmas Eve, she’ll return to room 308 and keep her promise. Because what happens at the Crossroads Hotel doesn’t always stay at the Crossroads Hotel. When it does, it stays forever.

Creepy, right?

We’ve got nine great stories in the Crossroads Hotel issue of the Uncollected Anthology.  You can buy the stories separately for $.99 each or purchase a bundle of all stories (https://bundlerabbit.com/b/crossroads-hotel/) for the great low price of $4.99. I hope you’ll buy the whole bundle.

~~~

And finally for this update, if you missed the Storybundles I was in last year (I hope you didn’t, but just in case), the two collections of mine previously only available through Storybundle are now available at your favorite ebook distributor (and soon in print as well)

SPELLS GONE BAD is available for $3.99US. (https://books2read.com/u/bMpa75)

CRIMES OF YESTERYEAR is available for $2.99US (https://books2read.com/u/mZKPv2) which is a fantastic price considering this collection contains three brand new stories not published elsewhere as well as the award-winning story “The Color of Guilt.”

If you haven’t read either of these collections, I hope you’ll pick them up from your favorite ebook store!

New Release!

Long time, no site updates, right? Well, I’ve been busy writing!

I’m thrilled to announce my latest novel, IRIS & IVY.

Wait, I can hear you saying. Didn’t you write a short story with that same title?

Yes. Yes, I did. Back in 2011 and 2012, I wrote 52 short stories as part of a challenge to write a short story a week for an entire year. (Writers do these crazy challenges all the time as a way to keep ourselves motivated, keep practicing and learning our craft, and just to see if we can.)

Here’s the cover for the short story:

(The cover for the novel’s much better, wouldn’t you say? *g*)

“Iris & Ivy” was a part of my 52 stories in one year challenge. So was “Famous.” Both stories are part of my Moretown Bay urban fantasy series, named for the fictional Pacific Northwest city where magic intersects with everyday life.

Well, I loved the idea behind Iris & Ivy so much that I decided to write a full-length novel with the same basic premise: a woman goes on the hunt for the killer who murdered her identical twin to help her sister’s ghost find peace. Only with a twist, because I’m me and that’s how I write.

I can just hear you saying, “But, Annie, if I’ve read the short story, isn’t the novel the same thing?”

Nope!

Novels have a way of taking on lives of their own. Even writers don’t always know where these things are going. Sure, I thought I had this great road map with the short story, but the novel surprised even me. Not only did Iris & Ivy take on new lives of their own in the novel, whole new characters showed up, including a character from “Famous” that I got to know a whole lot better, whether I wanted to or not. *shudder*

If you haven’t read “Famous” in a while, click on over to Free Stuff on this website. I’ve posted the story there to read for free. It’s a great way to get started on the dark ride of IRIS & IVY, the novel.

Great! you’re saying. So where can I get my hands on a copy of IRIS & IVY?

(I hope you’re saying that, especially if you’ve read this far.)

Boy, then, do I have a deal for you!

IRIS & IVY is currently exclusive to The Darker Realms Fantasy Bundle over at Storybundle.

Curated by editor/publisher extraordinaire Allyson Longueira, this bundle gathers ten great dark fantasy books (okay, two of them are humorous dark fantasy stories, but you get my drift) written by #1 New York Times bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson, USA Today bestselling author Dean Wesley Smith, World Fantasy Award winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Hugo award nominated author Steve Diamond, kickass writer Stefon Mears (who’ll be featured in the next issue of The Uncollected Anthology), Walter H. Hunt, D. J. Butler, Mark Leslie, and me, plus an entire issue of Fiction River Presents.

Storybundles are easy to buy (you can even given them as gifts!), but there’s a catch – they’re only available for a short time.  This one will only be around for another seventeen days. I know that sounds like a long time, but we’re already almost done with September, and those seventeen days will fly by before you know it.

So don’t delay! Pick up your copy of IRIS & IVY, a Moretown Bay novel, at Storybundle today along with a bunch of other great fiction. You set the price, and part of the price benefits AbleGamers.

What a deal, right?

BTW, I have to mention how much I love the cover for IRIS & IVY! The novel cover was created by Deranged Doctor Design. If you’re in the market for some great cover work, check them out!

One Week Left!

How are we all doing in this post-eclipse week? I spent the eclipse working in my office, but I had a nifty view of the little crescent eclipse shadows on the garage roof. And I’ve really been enjoying all the eclipse photos and stories I’m seeing on the web.

What I really want to talk about this morning is the Universe Between storybundle.

The great thing about StoryBundles–well, two great things about StoryBundles–you get a bunch of awesome books, not to mention all the short stories in the Fiction River: Universe Between issue, for a terrific low price, but you also get to support a totally worthwhile charity in AbleGamers.  But there’s a catch — this bundle’s only available for a short time, and then it goes away forever.

And the Universe Between bundle is the only place you can find my newest Twig and Jocko book Unbroken Familiar. That’s right. If you don’t nab a copy of this bundle now, you’ll have to wait until October to read Unbroken Familiar.  And who wants to wait that long?

So don’t miss out. Pick up your copy of this fabulous bundle today!

Freebies, New Releases, and a Great New Bundle!

Boy, there’s a lot of stuff going on around here for a Monday! Let’s dive right into it, shall we?

An astute reader recently asked me where the heck my Free Fiction Thursday stories went. Good question! I’ve been so busy working on new projects that my weekly free stories have fallen by the wayside. But no more! Free fiction rides again, only instead of once a week, I’ll be posting free stories once a month under the Free Stuff tab on this website.

First up is “The Magic of Home,” the first story I wrote for the Uncollected Anthology. “The Magic of Home” introduced Twig, my street-smart elf, and her friend Jocko, the oversized dwarf.  Why did I start out with a Twig and Jocko story?  I’m happy you asked, because I have a brand new release featuring my favorite mismatched elf and dwarf.

UNBROKEN FAMILIAR won’t officially be released until October 1st, but if you’d like to get your copy now, UNBROKEN FAMILIAR is part of the wonderful new The Universe Between Bundle over at StoryBundle!

In addition to UNBROKEN FAMILIAR, this bundle features nine other great fantasy books by some of the best writers working in urban and contemporary fantasy today. Here’s what bundle curator Dean Wesley Smith has to say about the idea behind the bundle:

I grew up on Twilight Zone back in the late 1950s and through the early 1960s. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I heard the sentence, “In the middle ground between light and shadow…” in that opening sequence to the Twilight Zone.

Thankfully, my parents didn’t seem to mind that I watched that show every week. And for some reason that sentence out of the opening sequence stuck with me for my entire life. I loved living in that middle ground. All my writing falls in the middle ground between two places. Every story. Some more obviously than others, but without a doubt, every story or novel that I write, or every book or magazine I edit, falls in the “between” place.

I revel in that, no matter how hard rules tried to force me one way or the other. I liked living there in the middle, in that place between light and dark. With this bundle, I was looking for the very same thing.

This bundle once again features one of my favorite charities, AbleGamers. So not only can you get UNBROKEN FAMILIAR two months early along with nine other great titles for one low price, you can support a nifty charity, too!  Don’t delay, though. StoryBundles are only available for a short time and then they’re gone for good.

~~~

UNBROKEN FAMILIAR is just one of my new releases.  The latest issue of Fiction River – PULSE POUNDERS: ADRENALINE features my story “Dust to Dust.”

Here’s what editor Kevin J. Anderson had to say about “Dust to Dust.”

Annie uses her mystery and fantasy chops to create a heroine with a mission straight from Hell, a ruthless demon bounty hunter with a hole in her heart and a quest from that most horrible of bosses—and she manages to give us a story both edgy and touching.

Nifty, right? PULSE POUNDERS: ADRENALINE is available now in ebook and paper from your favorite online booksellers.

~~~

And last, but certainly not least, the latest issue of the Uncollected Anthology – MYSTICAL MELODIES – just released my new story “The Last Night at the Crowley.”

People say haunted houses contain the longings and nightmares of the dead who couldn’t leave their lives behind.

But what about places where the living left parts of their souls behind? Where singers and musicians willingly played their hearts out, night after night, just for the love of music?

What haunts places like The Crowley?

Mazie’s about to find out.

You can purchase each individual story in MYSTICAL MELODIES from your favorite ebook distributor, or you can purchase the entire issue at one great low price!


That’s right, due to popular demand (and the great folks at BundleRabbit), we ‘re collecting the Uncollected these days. Check it out!

And happy reading!

A Bundle Here, a Bundle There…

This year is definitely turning into the year of the bundles, and I couldn’t be happier about that! Why? Because bundles are an awesome way for readers to get a whole lot of great fiction at a low, low price.

I want to tell you about not one, but two new bundles from the great folks at StoryBundle.

The first is the BUMP IN THE NIGHT THRILLERS bundle curated by award-winning author Kevin J. Anderson: If you’re ready for summer thrills and chills (ones that don’t even require air conditioning), you’ll love the new “Bump in the Night Thrillers” StoryBundle, which just launched today. Sixteen suspenseful, fun, and entertaining reads, including my story “Dust to Dust,” which is part of the brand spanking new Fiction River publication  Pulse Pounders 2: Adrenaline.

The bundle books include compelling urban fantasy reads with some of the strangest detectives you’ve ever met, including Dan Shamble Zombie P.I. in Kevin J. Anderson’s Unnatural Acts, as well as ghosts, elves, vampires, sorceresses, modern-day dragon slayers, immortal Shakespearean characters, and more in Dean Wesley Smith’s The Deep Sunset, R.R. Virdi’s Grave Beginnings, Patrick Hester’s Into the Fire, Susan Sizemore’s Living Dead Girl, J.A. Pitt’s Night Terrors, L. Jagi Lamplighter’s Prospero Lost, Alex Berg’s Red Hot Steele and Cold Hard Steele.

For thrilling adventures in other times and places, there’s Death Wind by Travis Heermann and Jim Pinto and Lady Sherlock by Brooks Wachtel. For straight suspense with a high-tech or a darker edge, you’ll enjoy the Daredevils Club novel Artifact written by Kevin J. Anderson, F. Paul Wilson, Matthew J. Costello, and Janet Berliner, and The Demon in Business Class by Anthony Dobranski, Whack Job by Mike Baron, and The Devil’s Churn by Kristine Kathryn Rusch.

The bundle is only available through August 16. Get a huge bundle of reading material, help support indie authors, as well as the Challenger Center, a terrific non-profit organization that engages students and teachers in dynamic, hands-on exploration and discovery opportunities that strengthen knowledge in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), inspires students to pursue careers in these fields, and provides an outlet to learn and apply important life skills.

But that’s not all! (Here’s where I channel my inner late-night TV infomercial salesperson.)

If you love short fiction like I do, or if you love really digging into the worlds authors create, or if you love binge-watching TV series on your streaming service of choice and want to do that with your summer reading, have I got a deal for you!

THE SF&F BINGE READER BUNDLE, affectionately known as the Bundle Bundle, curated by award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch.

I’ve kinda lost count of the number of stories I have in this bundle. I have four stories in the Uncollected Anthology’s Year 1 Omnibus, two stories in the Fiction River bundle (one’s a Diz & Dee story!), and one story in the The Faerie Summer bundle. That’s it. I think.

Here’s what Kris has to say about the Bundle Bundle:

Usually, StoryBundle provides bundles of books, individual titles by individual authors who band together to provide a great reading bundle.

This time, individual authors and editors have banded together with bundled books to give you the deal of the summer.

By my count (and I might be a bit math-challenged), you get 19 standalone novels in this bundle. Some of the novels are long, and some of them are short. But 19 novels! Plus more short stories than I’m willing to count, wrapped in 7 anthologies and a gigantic bundle that is bigger than your average anthology.

What kind of fiction will you find here? Science fiction and fantasy only, but written in such a way as to blur the lines of genre. You’ll find books in which high-tech gaming meets the world of faerie, books which hack reality (and involve crime lords!), time travel to the Old West, wreck diving in space, space pirates (!), librarian witches (complete with feline familiars), and the Fates—who just got fired.

Honestly, there are so many books and stories in this bundle that even if you’re the world’s pickiest reader, you’ll find a series or a group of books that are perfect for you. You’ll be saving a bundle too, since these boxed sets and omnibuses and bundles all retail for at least $10 (ebook) and sometimes much more.

Oh…and if you’re so inclined…please toss in a few extra dollars to help AbleGamers. AbleGamers tailors game equipment and systems to help disabled gamers join the large online community of gaming, providing social outlets and entertainment for folks who usually struggle to participate. Since two of our book series deal with gaming in this bundle, I figured AbleGamers would be the appropriate charity to add on.

Like all great deals, though, this one’s around for a limited time only. The Bundle Bundle, or the Binge Readers Bundle, or the “I can’t believe I got such a great deal on all these books!” Bundle is only available until August 9.
