Welcome to the BEND Anthology Giveaways, even though the “Bend Anthology” in eBook format (at least on Amazon) is no more. However… many of the authors have re-uploaded their individual stories that made up the “Bend Anthology” to Amazon, so let’s call this the errr…..
“ex-Bend Anthology Stories Giveaway!!” <— LOL!! I crack myself up.
P.S. You can, however still get it for a limited time at BN/Apple/Kobo!!
For the last few days each of the BEND authors have been hosting an exclusive giveaway with a partner blog, and today (the final day’s giveaway) is Maryse’s Book Blog’s turn (that’s me!!!), and “my” author (hehe, I love calling her mine, ’cause she’s one of my absolute favorites) is none other than the fabulous Shay Savage!!! YAY US!!!
Yep! Bend was LIVE and loaded in brand spankin’ new short stories by some of our FAVORITE authors. Some of ‘em, we’ll even be meeting at Book Bash! If you got in on the amazing deal while the entire anthology was live (with over 700 pages and with that super-sexy cover), you lucked out BIG TIME!!
But don’t despair… here are the individual stories on Amazon as we speak:
- Worth by Shay Savage
- Kick (Songs of Perdition) by C.D. Reiss
- The Devil In Me (Seven Devils) by K.I. Lynn
- UnRaveled by K. Bromberg <— (edited for content, not the same version as BEND)
- These Men by Andrea Smith <— oh this one’s almost 200 pages!
- Red & Wolfe, Part I: An Erotic Fairy Tale by Ella James
- J.A. Huss’s story will be available June 23rd, 2014
- Alessandra Torre will not be publishing her story individually.
Now for those wondering what happened to “Bend” the anthology, here is a letter from the Erotica Consortium:
Dear Readers and Fans,
Thank you so much for your support of the Bend Anthology.
For those of you who may not be aware yet, Bend was removed from Amazon for content violations. They cannot confirm which story was at issue, or why. I leave it to you to deduce the story that was too scorching hot to handle.
We support each other, and we will never release this anthology without each story intact, complete and as originally published. The vision of Bend will remain pure.
But part of the vision was that the anthology would be temporary. We always intended to unpublished it and republish the stories individually. This was to occur after 60 days, however, in light of recent events, this will be happening earlier. Like, this weekend.
Bend, the anthology will be pulled from all venues probably by Saturday, and that those of us who wanted to individually publish our novellas will do so. As for any story too scorching for Amazon, well I am sure that all interested parties will make every effort to please their readers.
Again, your support is our gold. Please stay with us through this transition. If you still want to get it, BN/Apple/Kobo will have it for a little while. Or you can wait and get the books you really want individually.
The Erotica Consortium
