Readers, now is the time to stock up on reading material! For the next four weeks, iBooks is promoting multi-author book bundles for a mere 99c!
I’m excited to announce that Doorway to Destiny (A Thirteen-Book Fantasy and Science Fiction Adventure Box Set), the ebook box set I put together along with best-selling fantasy author TC Southwell, has been selected for promotion at iBooks from 18 September to 14 October.
The promotion launched 18 September in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada and the UK simultaneously, and ours is one of only about 100 box sets included, of which 40 are from Smashwords authors. Roughly 220 Smashwords authors stand to benefit from this promotion – go Smashwords!
A huge thank you goes out to iBooks for including Doorway to Destiny in this promotion. You guys rock!
The timing couldn’t be better either. On 17 September, Apple released iOS8, a new operating system for iPones, the iPad and the iPod Touch – and it’s the first time the operating system comes pre-bundled with the iBooks app. This is fantastic news for all iBooks authors – it means that, very soon, our books will be more discoverable to a potential few hundred million new readers!
To boot, iBooks rarely does month-long promotions, but this month-long iBooks promotion will run simultaneously with the Wizard of Ends virtual book tour for two weeks. Again, impeccable timing! As most of you already know, the tour is set to run from 1 – 31 October and both the first two books in this new fantasy adventure series will be published in October, so the iBooks promotion fits in perfectly with the Wizard of Ends launch.
This collection of eleven fantasy and science fiction novels and two anthologies will transport you to strange and exciting worlds to share in the tragedies and triumphs of complex yet endearing heroes and heroines. Discover the gripping works of authors TC Southwell and Vanessa Finaughty and be swept away by magical adventures, epic battles and futuristic voyages to unknown universes.
With eight novels by TC Southwell and a trilogy and two anthologies by Vanessa Finaughty, this box set offers fantasy and sci-fi lovers escapism that will keep you up long past your bedtime. Dive into fantastic worlds and meet fascinating characters whose trials and tribulations will enchant and inspire. Discover how a vengeful assassin reshapes the fate of three kingdoms and share in a quest to discover the origins of mankind, then follow the tale of a young queen’s fight to be free with the aid of a combat cyborg. Two short story anthologies spice up the fare with dragons, sorcerers and magic galore, and a child of another god strives to save his world from mankind’s ravages. When a mortal dark god treads a tragic path as he rises to destroy the Overworld, a brave young girl risks her life to try to change his savage ways. Each hero and heroine takes a definitive step through a doorway to destiny as he or she seeks to right wrongs and save worlds.
