For a fun change of pace, I am so happy to announce that the Storybundle Women in Fantasy is now live! This is a fast Storybundle, only 22 days, so you want to have this on your radar, and be sure to look it over and share with friends. We're talking ten wonderful authors, and if you have not met them all, you can look forward to hours and hours of fantastic reading!

Writer and editor Kristine Kathryn Rusch curated the collection, and she says:

"There are dozens of subgenres of fantasy, not just that British Boarding School subgenre, but made-up world fantasy, and high fantasy, and urban fantasy, and epic fantasy, and contemporary fantasy, and dark fantasy, and funny fantasy. Some fantasy features ghosts; some features elves. Some has more magic than we can keep track of and some has hardly any magic at all.

"Women write all of it. Why do I harp on women? Because of something that happened last year. I discovered that much of the history of women in the science fiction and fantasy field has been forgotten."

Kris is out to correct that by introducing you to genre-splicing, magic-mixing woman authors quietly changing the field of fiction. In this collection, you will find a taste of ten radically different worlds and styles, written by accomplished storytellers. As Kris says, some of these authors she's been reading a long time, and others are new twenty-first century favorites.

Who has a book here? Look at all these awesome people (I'm in it, too, but you know that). Yes, there's novels, novellas, and short fiction!

I have mine and I can't wait to start reading. (Remember if you have one or two of these, those extras will make great gifts. Also--you can give away an entire Storybundle!) Spread the word!

Allie appreciates all her fans. And hope that everyone spreads the word on this sweet bundle--or gives one as a gift to a friend. :)

I was very excited to learn about the Pearl Foundation, an excellent idea that is very much needed. I'll remember this group!
