StoryBundle ()storybundle.com) wants you to read indie books. As part of our launch, we're putting up our first offering, The Big Bang Bundle, showcasing five fantastic indie ebooks and two bonus books for one pay-what-you-want price. We're taking the supremely successful bundle idea, which has been proven to work splendidly with gaming and apps, and bringing it to the world of reading.
"My dream is two-fold," said Jason Chen, Founder of StoryBundle. "As an avid reader, I wanted to make a place where independent authors can get exposure and readers can get quality ebooks without having to sift through list after list of titles. With StoryBundle, voracious readers will always have great reads easily within their reach."
Why StoryBundle? Here are just a few features StoryBundle provides.
The Big Bang Bundle, the first StoryBundle offering, features five tremendous indie books, including:
Plus, two additional bonus books you get if you beat the bonus price:
"As a huge fan of the indie game and music bundles, being asked to be a part of the first indie book bundle was both flattering and exciting," Geoffrey Morrison, whose novel Undersea appears in the first bundle. "Jason has put together an impressive group of authors. StoryBundle is a fantastic way to get independent authors the exposure we need, and readers many new books to enjoy."
In addition to offering readers a great deal on books, we're giving them the chance to donate a portion of their purchase to a worthy cause. StoryBundle is partnering with MightyWriters and Trees for the Future, as well as Philanthroper, a daily deals site for nonprofits, to make this happen.
StoryBundle was created to give a platform for independent authors to showcase their work, and a source of quality titles for thirsty readers. StoryBundle works with authors to create bundles of ebooks that can be purchased by readers at their desired price. Before starting StoryBundle, Founder Jason Chen covered technology and software as an editor for Gizmodo.com and Lifehacker.com.
