The Fantasy Collection – Competition

Ok so I’ve raved about StoryBundle before. If you’ve not heard of it then take a look here – www.storybundle.com  .

What StoryBundle offer you is brilliant chance to own a collect of books at a bargain price. Authors get together to offer the collection of books and you decide how much to pay (minimum $5) and how much of that goes to the authors and how much goes to StoryBundle itself.

I really like the idea, it quickly give you a bunch of books which are along the same theme at a reasonable price and it’s a great way to be introduced to new authors.

A new bundle is now out which one of my favourite authors has curated, Charlotte E. English.

Here’s some blurb –

The Fairytale Fantasy Bundle, curated by Charlotte E. English: Most of us grew up with fairy stories, of one sort or another. Almost everyone has a favourite, or a whole book of favourites. Tricky things, fairy tales; they change with the years, adapt themselves to their audience or their culture, fade in one place only to reappear in different clothes half a world away. They are stories of magic and enchantment; of men in the worlds of faerie (or more recently, faeries in the worlds of men); of talking animals and curses, enchanted shoes and porridge-pots; of ogres and dragons and giants, quests and princesses and pixies.

Fairy tales have been inspiring and influencing the fantasy genre for many years, adding colour and quirks and style – and sometimes running off, giggling, with the plot. This is a bundle full of wonder, fairytale-fashion. Well-loved stories come up new in Christine Pope’s Ashes of Roses and the multi-author anthology Once Upon a Kiss. The darker side of the fairy tale comes to the fore in Gwynn White & Erin St Pierre’s Queen of Extinction. Talking animals, witches, damsels and royalty predominate in T. Kingfisher’s quirky tale The Raven and the Reindeer, and Alethea Kontis’s Trixter. Deb Logan and Anthea Sharp mix fairy-tale lore with the modern world in Faery Unexpected and Feyland. And I offer a gallimaufry of magic markets, wayward boots and faerie royalty in Faerie Fruit and Bessie Bell and the Goblin King. 

You can click here to read much more about the bundle, and make sure to click on each cover for reviews, a preview and a personal note from our curator!

Pay the minimum and you’ll get 4 books, pay $14 and you’ll get an extra 5 books so 9 books for just over £10! Not bad eh?

Well even better is I’ve managed to get my hand on a code to give one lucky winner all 9 books for free! A big thank you to Charlotte for allowing me to offer this as a prize on my blog J
