Penguin is offering, as part of its “eSpecial” program, three anthology stories that were originally available only as part of a collection. Father Mine by JR Ward is a novella available for $3.99 only in her Black Dagger Brotherhood Insider’s Guide (Retail $15.00). Father Mine features a story about Zsadist and Bella which I’ve heard is all angsty and full of woe. Buy Link here (Jia has read it, maybe she can come and give some deets).
The other two stories being offered is Karen Chance’s Buying Trouble, Patricia Briggs’s Alpha and Omega, both stories originally part of the On the Prowl anthology. Chance’s book is available on October 14th and Briggs’ novella on the 20th. These two novellas are $2.99.
I like the idea of buying the novellas separately but I do wonder at the price point. For example, the entire On The Prowl anthology can be purchased in eform at Fictionwise for $6.11 (with discounts). Perhaps with discounts, the Chance and Briggs’ novellas will be around the $2.50 mark instead of the $3.00 mark.
