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
