Nic Tatano talks story bundles, and the World's Coolest Shopping Cart...


I'm really pleased to have the lovely Nic Tatano on my blog today, and he's here to talk about story bundles, and what could quite possibly be the world's coolest shopping cart! If you're a book lover, you might want to read on... I'll let Nic himself explain...



Imagine you're in a bookstore and I walk up to you with a shopping cart filled with ten books in a genre you really like. You look at the covers and blurbs and find them interesting. They're the kind of books you'd buy. Then I tell you that you can pay whatever you think they're worthand, oh, by the way, you can register to win a Kindle or a $100 gift card. You'd probably ask, "What's the catch?"

There isn't one. Welcome to Story Bundle.

This is a company that creates bundles of books with similar themes and offers them at a price you determine. And right now, one of my books is in that shopping cart.



The young adult bundle is called "Crossing Worlds" and every book features a young protagonist dealing with amazing challenges in magical worlds. In my case, "Destiny's Hourglass" is the story of a teenage boy who can change the future with his mind. Yeah, I know the current trend is to write kick-ass girls, but I thought the guys deserved equal time. And, ya know, that Harry Potter kid seemed to develop a decent following.



How did I arrive in said shopping cart? Well, a few years ago some author friends told me about Story Bundle, so I sent them a bunch of books of different genres to check out. A few weeks ago they contacted me about joining a very talented group in an upcoming bundle. So here I am.


The bundle is available for a little more than three weeks and the timing is perfect, since the last day (April 16th) coincides with the release of the second book in my Jillian Spectre series. (See aforementioned kick-ass girls.)



Anyway, hope you'll check out StoryBundle.com. They always have multiple bundles for sale of different genres. As for that pricing thing, you can pay a little and get five books or pay a bit more and get five bonus books.

But wait, there's more! Remember, I mentioned a prize, so don't forget to register for your choice of a $100 gift card or a Kindle.



So, is this the coolest shopping cart, or what? 





The second book in Nic's Jillian Spectre series - Jillian Spectre & The Dream Weaver - is released on April 16th, and is available to pre-order right HERE




The first book in the series - The Adventures of Jillian Spectre - is available now.

I've now got a website!




After wondering whether I'd be able to do it or not, I bit the bullet and decided to have a go at creating my own author website - and I've done it! I mean, it's nothing earth shattering, but it's all my own work, and it's not half bad, even if I do say so myself. 

It'll go and-in-hand with my blog here to keep you up-to-date with everything that's going on in my writing world - you'll be able to link straight to this blog via the website - and it might even be the place to go for the odd exclusive, too... There's already something up in the News section that some of you might be interested in...

Anyway, if you want to check out my brand new website, just click HERE, or click in the box on the top of the left hand column, and take a little look around...


NEW RELEASE! 'Rank' by D.R. Graham




The best of the bucking bulls are rank, and so are the cowboys who ride them...



I exhaled and slid Shae-Lynn's pink armband over my forearm. I kissed it, then did a prayer before climbing into the chute. This isn't about you anymore. I got something to prove.


Rodeo is all Billy Ryan and his brother Cole have ever known, until one deadly wreck changes everything. With their mom requiring full-time care and Cole dealing with his own demons, Billy needs to step up to take care of his family. So he walks away from his future as a champion bull rider. Convincing himself he didn't quit because he lost his nerve.

Barrel racer Shae-Lynn, the sweet good-girl-next-door, grew up with the boys on the rodeo circuit. Shae's the only person who knows Billy better than he knows himself. She could help him get back in the ring, but there's a limit to how many times she'll watch him make the same mistakes. Especially when it comes to her heart.

When Cole's gambling debts get out of control and the bills at home pile up, Billy has no choice but to enter a winner takes all bull riding event. He needs Shae-Lynn by his side, but that isn't going to happen unless he figures out a way to cowboy up and prove he's good enough for a woman like her.
