Music and books – and you can name your own price.
Often when I read, I hear a soundtrack going in my head, if I don’t outright have one playing in the background. Getting offered the chance to curate a bundle immediately led me to the conclusion that I wanted to try to create just that experience. I gathered a team to reach out to bands and the Multimedia Fantasy Music Bundle was born. 6 bands, 5 authors – and you name your own price.
The way that StoryBundle works is a group of authors and musicians each put in books and albums to help promote each other. Each of them end up getting more exposure, more support, and create a great deal together that none could offer alone. For this bundle I chose not fantasy, but albums and books that struck a chord within me for their elements of the Fantastical. All for a price you decide. It doesn’t get better than that. Only it does. As a surprise unlock, each band has contributed a B Side bonus, and each book will unlock a second book. To encourage folks, the surprise unlock items will become available to everyone who has purchased the bundle as the number of people buying the bundle grows.
A portion of the proceeds also go to charity. The charity for this bundle is the Clayton Memorial Medical Fund, designated by Jay Lake, who passed away on June 1st after a long battle with cancer.
The Multimedia Fantasy Music Bundle runs for three weeks, till July 14th. Name your own price, help a great charity, and get some truly amazing books and music. (And please help us spread the word about the Multimedia Fantasy Music Bundle to give a boost to indie Musicians and Authors!) – Peter J. Wacks
The initial titles in the bundle (minimum $3 to purchase) are:
If you pay more than the bonus price of just $15, you'll get another five items:
And don't forget, every 1000 purchases unlocks a new item for everybody who purchased!
The bundle is available for a very limited time only, via http://www.storybundle.com.It allows easy reading on computers, smartphones, and tablets as well as Kindle and other ereaders via file transfer, email, and other methods. You get multiple DRM-free formats (.epub, and .mobi) for all books, but after the three weeks are over, the bundle is gone forever!
It's also super easy to give the gift of reading with StoryBundle, thanks to our gift cards – which allow you to send someone a code that they can redeem for any future StoryBundle bundle – and timed delivery, which allows you to control exactly when your recipient will get the gift of StoryBundle.
Why StoryBundle? Here are just a few benefits StoryBundle provides.
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.
