We're psyched to announce our new Quirk Perks program!
Starting this month, we're going to be dishing out monthly deals on an array of our books, from science fiction to cookbooks, horror novels to craftbooks, all from our communties Planet Quirk and Quirk DIY.
The plan? Two eBooks a month, one in each community. You'll be able to get these eBooks through the retailer of your choice. Your Kindle, Nook, iPad, whatever!
You'll be able to find these individual monthly deals via our Quirk Books communities, Quirk DIY and Planet Quirk, so be sure you're following them on Twitter and Facebook.
So what's on tap for the first batch of Quirk Perks? Check it out!
BREAKFAST FOR DINNER by Lindsay Landis and Taylor Hackbarth ($3.99): Inside Breakfast for Dinner you’ll find more than 100 classic breakfast recipes made with a twist. Enjoy hearty dishes like Bacon Fried Rice, Breakfast Ravioli, Pizza over Easy, and Cornmeal Pancakes with Beer-Braised Short Ribs—to name just a few.
As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton-and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy.
What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers-and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead.

This month, a bunch of Worst-Case Scenario eBooks have been added to the Apple iBookstore's Laugh Out Loud Books promotion (note, that link will open your iTunes). The books are in good company, hanging out with the two of my favorite humor books, All My Friends Are Dead and Go the F*ck to Sleep.
Are you a DIY adventurer who loves writing about crafting, cooking, fashion, and/or design? Are you a geek who enjoys comic books, movies, science fiction, pop culture, and/or top ten lists about those very things?
Then we're looking for you!
We're looking for some freelance bloggers to help expand our Planet Quirk and Quirk DIY communities. We're looking for passionate people, eager to write about what they love.
Yes, we're paying bloggers for their posts. It's not a lot, but it's something. Pay varies depending on the sort of content you're creating, whether you're working on short posts (ie: spotlighting a favorite Etsy shop) or in-depth featured editorial (top 10 lists, essays). We will discuss!
Interested? Drop me an email at email@example.com. Tell me a bit about yourself, what you're interested in writing about, and include a few links to some writing samples. Please don't send resumes. Just a friendly email and links to clips will do. You should be active on social media and familiar with what we publish on the blog.
