Bards & Sages Publishing has put together a bundle of speculative fiction and I’m happy to report that The Five Elements is part of it!
As you can see from the covers below, this is truly a mix of speculative titles spanning multiple genres, including science fiction, fantasy, dark fantasy, humor, military fiction, and more. Speculative, by definition, means fiction that pushes boundaries. I don’t think the books in this bundle are any exception.
The best part is that readers get to experience a wide array of indie authors at a greatly discounted bundle price of $21.99 (regularly $58.84 if bought separately).
The bundle is exclusively sold through DriveThruFiction.
Thief’s Gambit, the fifth Assassin Without a Name story, is now available as a pre-order at Amazon!
The Five Elements (The Alchemancer: Book One) is 99 cents on Amazon today only! Get it here.
I've been running a few promos lately for The Five Elements. I'm not big on sale prices without some sort of advertising behind it because it's near impossible to effectively get the word out without this outside help. Shouting it from the Twitter rooftops is not a good strategy, IMO, because it just adds to the noise and annoys people.
For this promotion, I chose eBookSoda. We're seeing more and more of these curated style email services where you get 1-2 featured books per email based on which genres you wish to receive info about. Bookbub pioneered this format and have had some success with it, so of course others are now attempting to emulate the model. Nothing wrong with that and, in fact, it's a great thing for authors and readers alike because it creates options.
So, eBookSoda today and then no more promotions for at least a couple of months (never say never, but that's my thinking for now).
However, another deal I have going is if you're interested in witty assassin stories, you can sign-up for my mailing list and get the next Assassin Without a Name story for free. The story is novelette length (14000 words) and I'm all but done with my end of things until it goes to my editor in about a week. The story is called Night of Zealotry and you can find out a little more about it here.
For the final week of the Smashwords "July Summer/Winter Sale", The Five Elements is 75% off when you use coupon code SSW75 at checkout. At its usual price of $4.99, that brings it down to $1.25.
Now is a great time to get familiar with Aaron, Shanna, Ensel Rhe, and even the despicable Erlek because why? Because The Nullification Engine (The Alchemancer: Book Two) is coming out soon. That's why.
The sale only lasts until the end of July, so take advantage while you can.
