Start the Halloween season off right :eek: FREE MONDAY THE 15TH THRU FRIDAY THE 19TH!

THE WICKED MUST BE PUNISHED...

A ten year old boy finds solace from his abusive father in the cornfields where his 'friends' reside. One of these friends is a scarecrow. The others are crows.

When his father's violence goes too far, something must be done, and before the night is up the wicked will learn that vengeance comes in many shapes and sizes.

-Praise for "The Straw Man and a Murder":

"Overall: 4 1/2 stars...the sort of [horror] story where the pleasure is in knowing what is coming and waiting for that pay off...I find the author to be ridiculously talented. If the writing isn't as effortlessly good as it seems, and when is it really as effortlessly good as it seems, then he can keep it his little secret..."

Welcome to KindleBoards, Jeff, and congratulations on your book!

(If you've gotten this welcome before, it's just as a matter of housekeeping. We like to put a copy of the "welcome letter" in each book thread. It doesn't mean you've done anything wrong, it just helps us know that you know the rules.)

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

The question is if I would still be as talented if I hadn't assigned one of your stories 5 stars and another one 4 1/2 stars. ;)
Excellent question. And the truthful answer is...if you panned me I would go to great lengths to destroy you.

Fortunately, you ARE very talented, and you DID give me generous reviews, so therefore I will spare you. Besides, we're apparently related remember? I think the family would frown on my actions if I carried through with said threat ;)

Ah, that's right -- the reviewer who felt that was the only way that anyone could possibly like your writing. The truth is that I'm unconscionably horrible to family. I actually forgot my husband's birthday the other day, and then started a fight with him for not pointing it out to me and making me have to live with the horrible guilt when I did remember. He ... is ... just ... so ... selfish! And now I feel guilty again -- I think I'll wake him up to remind him of the damage he's caused to my fragile psyche.

Wow, you two are quite a pair.

The cover is great, by the way -- especially big like that.  It's freaking me out a little.  Scarecrows are scary... congrats on the story.

I...have nothing to add to this? Other than please don't hurt me?

Once again, "The Straw Man and a Murder - A Dark Fairy Tale" will be available for FREE today and tomorrow!

If you didn't get a chance to catch it during the last promotion, I hope you do (and enjoy) this time around.

All the best.
