The Winter Weirderland Bundle, curated by Sandra Kasturi: Happy holidays! For those of you who long to just hunker down with a good read, a nice fire, and perhaps a heavy cat—all the better to avoid the malls and milling—we have a lovely selection of winter and holiday stories for you!
Join bon vivant Derby Cavendish as he saves the world time and again from holiday horrors like zombifying fruitcakes and evil cheerleaders, in Cocktails at Seven, Apocalypse at Eight.
What could be more delightfully cozy than snuggling up with some Dickensian ghosts in the Valancourt Book of Victorian Christmas Ghost Stories? And you can do it twice with volumes 1 and 2!
And there are seven more books you can click here to read much more about! Also make sure to click on each cover for reviews and a preview of all the books!
Making the Rounds by Allan Weiss
"All the magic of Harry Potter with none of the phony gravitas: all the self-deprecating humour of Phillip Roth, but with a much-improving supernatural air."– Cory Doctorow
Cocktails at Seven, Apocalypse at Eight by Don Bassingthwaite
"Rumours of these stories, previously only read live, had reached a near mythic level for those in the know, but not the GTA—those rumours pale to the notorious truth. Whether it's fruitcake zombies, overly possessive sweaters, or the holiness of a hockey arena, Bassingthwaite can skewer any tradition with Derby Cavendish's dry martini wit. Cocktails at Seven, Apocalypse at Eight is sassy, salacious, and superb!"– Chadwick Ginther, award-winning author of the Thunder Road trilogy
Waking Anastasia by Timothy Reynolds
"I enjoyed reading this lighthearted love story. The main character engaged my interest from the first chapter, and while I did have a few issues about Ana's personality, her existance as a ghost - especially one inspired by a dream - felt right; the words, her description, all highlighted that sense of the slightly but safely unreal. While I predicted the end, I did not predict the manner of the ending, so this gentle story kept my attention to the last page - and I've already re-read it."– Goodreads Review
O' Little Town of Deathlehem by Michael J. Evans and Harrison Graves
"I can heartily recommend this volume of delightful and original tales for bringing chills to the spines of winter readers who are curled up comfortably by the fire at holiday time, waiting for who-knows-what to slink down the chimney."– Hal Bodner, Bite Club and The Trouble with Hairy
Mrs. Claus - Not the Fairy Tale They Say by Rhonda Parrish
"These aren't the kinds of Christmas stories you share with elementary school children."– Tangent Online
The Grimoire of Kensington Market by Lauren B. Davis
"Davis confidently paints a magical world rich in detail where human trials unfold against a fairy-tale tapestry. Weaving a fresh legend from a mosaic of ancient stories, she creates a bold new world where wit equals witchery and kindness is as valued as courage."– John C. Foster, author of Mister White

Zero DRM. There's no DRM on any of our books. None. Why? For one, we don't believe DRM actually stops people from sharing what they want to share. Second, and most importantly, we don't believe we should be treating our customers as criminals. So go ahead and put these on your tablets, Kindles and smartphones, but if a friend wants to read the bundle, please have them buy one for themselves. With pay-what-you-want, we believe there's a price for everyone. Or better yet, buy one for them as a gift. Help support indie authors!
Support nonprofits. Best of all, you can also give a portion of the proceeds from each bundle to charity. To learn more about these charities and those they help, click the "Learn More" link next the charities when you purchase.
Easy delivery. It's super convenient to get these ebooks onto your reader of choice—just download and sync. Better yet, if you have a Kindle or Kindle-enabled tablet or smartphone, we can send the books directly to your device. No computer required.
