To celebrate CyberMonday, the oncoming holidays, and the fantastic Twist of a Knife StoryBundle, I’m offering a special extra ebook bonus if you purchase the bundle. But this offer disappears with the bundle in three days!
Since my included novel Protecting Her Own is romantic suspense, you can get an ebook of either Escape into Romance: A Collection of Sweet Beginnings, or Fantastic Women: A Dark Fantasy Novella Trio. More information about both collections is below.
All you have to do is send me a receipt of your StoryBundle purchase! The address is kari at karikilgore dot com. Just attach or embed a copy of your receipt email, and let me know which collection you’d like, and I’ll send you the link to download your free stories. That’s it! With ten wonderful books in the StoryBundle and your free collection, you’ll be set for a whole bunch of great reading.
You can also head over to Spiral Publishing to read The Lightning Festival, a free romance short set in the same Appalachian town as Protecting Her Own. The Lightning Festival is Spiral Publishing’s Thursday Escape, for this week only!
And don’t miss my post about creating my own network of fictional Appalachian towns for more about how the settings for these stories come to life.
Thank you, happy reading, and happy holidays!
