Magic Garden...

Merydith knows that she's different from all the other girls. She feels it deep down inside of her each time she and her brothers walk through her grandfather's big old house and grand, secret garden. The garden is an amazing place of magic and beauty--until the day tragedy strikes.

Merydith never questioned her grandparents' stern rules, her isolation, the shunning her family receives in town...or the strange work her grandfather does all day in his workshop. Until now. Something walks in the garden at night, murders occur in the local woods of Henman's Copse, and the more Merydith questions everything, the more her seemingly perfect world begins to unravel.

Merydith is determined to come face to face with the truth, even if it means facing the horror of her existence.

Get lost in the garden today.

This novel is great for young adult readers or adult readers, mild horror, teenage protagonist with a suspense and mystery flavor. Give it a try!

JGrover,

Welcome again to the Book Bazaar and congratulations on your new book!

KindleBoards is a Kindle fan and reader forum. As you browse KindleBoards, keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You've posted your book thread in the right place; this is just our standard welcome that we place in all book threads. :))

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--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).

--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

--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. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information.

--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 outside the Book Bazaar 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: http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,36.0.html. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

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

Here are the opening paragraphs to my young adult horror: Let's Play in the Garden--

What are you afraid of Merydith?
Merydith's childhood had always been rather strange. Where did I really come from? she often wondered. Merydith's entire life had not exactly been what you would call normal. She lived in her grandparents' home with her mother, Marion, and two younger brothers. Merydith was the oldest, then there was Tobey, and their baby brother Aaron. She never knew her father. To her it was as if he had never existed.
The house was nearly isolated, far from town on a deserted road. In order to get to the Santaneen home you had to take a turn down an unpaved pathway littered with rocks and dirt.
Merydith stood in the sun-soaked kitchen, her mind drifting as she filled the basket. She set delicate teacups in beside potato salad and added a few rose-colored napkins. She put the finished basket on a silver, oval-shaped tray. When she heard the soft whistling of the teakettle, she poured the hot water into the shiny silver teapot. All was ready as she placed the teapot on the tray.

End excerpt.

Let's Play in the Garden. Young adult/adult horror novel. 200 pages. 72,000 words. $4.99 on Kindle:
