New Year, New Series

We recently shared a key tip to bundling and box sets — a box set cover format that works well in merchandising.

Here’s another bundling trend that’s fun for writers and readers: Pairing up first-in-series novels by genre. Recently Crossroads Press put together some massive first-in-series bundles.  With these limited-time, well-priced bundles, genre fans can easily discover new authors and new-to-digital series — a great start to a New Year of great reads.
