Another post this month? What’s going on? This time, it’s a book deal—that is, a deal where you can buy a bunch of books at a special price, not me signing a deal with a publisher 😛 . I’m thrilled to let you know that The Diamond Device is appearing in the Renegades of Tomorrow bundle, available on StoryBundle from 24 August until 14 September.
If you’ve not come across StoryBundle before, they’re worth a closer look. They offer limited-time deals on collections of books, which are DRM-free (ie not tied to an account or device) and in different formats (.epub and .mobi for ebooks, and .cbz and/or .pdf for comics). Bundles usually have around a dozen books, curated with an eye to a particular theme. For example, space opera or urban fantasy or horror, writing craft, history of games, and sometimes comic books. There’s a pay what you want model, with a few “core” books available at the minimum price (usually $5) and the remainder unlocked if you pay above a threshold amount. I’ve found quite a few new authors via book bundles, which is why my review collection may seem a little, um, eclectic.
The Renegades of Tomorrow bundle is curated by the Independent Authors Committee of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA). In it, you’ll get 4 books for $5 (including The Diamond Device), and a further 9 books if you pay $20 or more. Here’s what the curators have to say about it.
