The Witchy Bundle is Here!

THE WITCHY BUNDLE

The Witchy Bundle - Curated by Simon Kewin
The end of April and the start of May – exactly six months from Halloween – has always been a time for witches, magic and the influence of the Other World in pagan folklore. The Celtic festival of Beltane is traditionally observed on May 1st, and April 30th is also known as Walpurgis Night – or in Germanic folklore Hexennacht, literally "Witches' Night."
What better time, then, to partake in the Witchy Bundle, your chance to grab a collection of ten truly magical books that involve witches of one sort or another. This collection takes us all across our own world as well as into other lands that touch upon ours. There are American witches and witches battling the Nazis in war-torn Europe. There are dark twists on fairy tales and witches in the wild west. There are witches who don't know they have the power or the sight until dire need comes upon them.
Thrillers, fantasy, romance, horror, mystery – there are books here to suit every taste.
The ten books feature bestselling authors as well as rising stars. The list includes my own urban fantasy/high fantasy novel Hedge Witch, the first book in the Cloven Land Trilogy. We also have USA Today bestselling author Catherine Stine's Witch of the Cards, David Neth's The Full Moon, the first volume in his Under the Moon series. Christine Pope gives us Darknight, a Witches of Cleopatra Hill tale, and Alesha Escobar has her thrilling Gray Tower trilogy.
Matthew S. Cox contributes his Nine Candles of Deepest Black and Sara O. Thompson her Muddy Waters, the first in the Otherwhere series. Milo James Fowler's Coyote Cal omnibus takes us to the gunslinging weird west and Steve Vernon gives us his spine-chilling Tatterdemon omnibus. NY Times bestselling author K. N. Lee's book in the bundle is Academia of the Beast, a dark retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
As always, at StoryBundle, you name your own price — whatever you feel the books are worth — and a portion of the proceeds goes to charity (in this case, Mighty Writers and Girls Write Now). For $5 (or more, if you feel generous), you'll get the basic bundle of five books in any ebook format—WORLDWIDE. If you pay $15 (or more, if you feel generous), you'll get the five bonus books as well.
The Witchy Bundle runs for three weeks only. This is a great deal, and a great way to pick up a batch of witchy books for Beltane. – Simon Kewin
And for a limited time, all newsletter subscribers can get a copy of Darkangel by Christine Pope—the first part of the Witches of Cleopatra Hill trilogy! Make sure to get this before you start on Darknight, found in the Witchy Bundle.
The initial titles in the Witchy Bundle (minimum $5 to purchase) are:
  • The Tatterdemon Omnibus by Steve Vernon
  • Hedge Witch by Simon Kewin
  • Coyote Cal by Milo James Fowler
  • Academia of the Beast by K.N. Lee

Dark Indiscretions (Dark Indiscretions Series Book 1)

Dark Indiscretions 

(Dark Indiscretions Series Book 1) 

Review


Dark Indiscretions is a fresh take on the paranormal genre. The author has such a unique voice that the characters and their personalities jump off the page. Add a unique plot and fresh dialogue, and this book is a certified page-turner. If you love steamy shifters, and suspense, you'll love Dark Indiscretions.


Mature audiences only 18+ (Second ed. almost 6K added)
Jennifer’s family is scarier than any nightmare. But if she rebels against the family ways, they’ll turn their viciousness on her next..


At just a century old, a family dinner gone wrong shows Jennifer Johnston exactly why humans believe Mystics are evil, and the events that follow leave her with more than just a few tortured memories.

Jackson Dawls and Taylor Durham are a deadly species all their own as well, but even they fear the Mystics and their barbaric ways. Now, unforeseen circumstances bring them face to face with not one, but a few.

When the three meet, long-hidden secrets are brought to light. Secrets no one but Jennifer knew. But if they can’t learn to work together, their apprehensions will destroy their lives.

Rise of the Storm Bringer **Blog Tour** #interview


Rise of the Storm Bringer 

**Blog Tour** 

#interview

Today we have a special guest. I was thrilled to interview Ken Lange, and hope you enjoy it too. Comments or questions? Put them in the comments section. Now, let's hear about his new book first!

For most people, a visit from their former in-laws is unpleasant at most. If only I were that lucky. 


Mine have unexpectedly dropped by, leaving a couple of bodies in little bits and a message in blood as their way of saying hi. 



Which is just great. Now I can add one more group to the growing list of nut-bags who want to tuck me in for a dirt nap. Simply put, if the in-laws don’t get me, a dead woman, the Loki, or any one of a legion of mythological beasties just might. 



To top it off, I’ve learned that there’s a cosmic war that’s been raging since the dawn of creation, and somehow, I’ve found myself at the very center of it all. I know it's gonna be a hell of a day when death might be the least of my problems.







Biography

Ken Lange is a current resident of the ‘Big Easy’, along with his partner and evil yet loving cats. Any delay, typo or missed edit can and will be blamed on the latter’s interference.

He arrived at this career a little later in life and his work reflects it. Most of his characters won’t be in their twenties and they aren’t always warm and fuzzy. He is of the opinion, that middle-aged adults are woefully underrepresented in fiction and has made it his mission to plug that gap.



Translation, he’s middle aged and crotchety.






Where are you from?
I moved around a lot when I was younger, but nowadays I live in New Orleans.

When did you know, you wanted to become an author?
I started writing when I was still in school, but work pushed it aside until recently.

What challenges have you faced?
I’m not sure the challenges in my life are that different than most other people’s, but I will say that trying to balance work and being an author is tough.

What is your favorite part about being an author?
Writing the stories I’ve always wanted to tell.

Who is your greatest supporter?
My wife, since she’s the one who really pushed me to find an editor and really give the author thing a real chance.

Any advice for someone who aspires to be an author?
Be yourself, and find a fantastic editor. I’m lucky to have such a phenomenal one, and it’s made all the difference in the world.

Anything you want to say to your fans?
I really hope you enjoy the books.

Coffee or tea?
Tea has always been my drink of choice. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of coffee.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Instantaneous healing
