I wasn't sure if we were allowed to promote our books here or not but if we are I have just released my first psychological horror novelette (15k words) which is now 99 cents on Kindle:

The Crazy Old Lady In The Attic

Mattie, the heroine of the story is in her early 30s and has escaped her proper Bostonian upbringing by marrying Stan, a Cape Cod fisherman. Mattie was raised in an elegant brownstone on Boston's Beacon Hill by her elegant, refined grandmother whom she called GrammyLou. On the top floor of GrammyLou's brownstone there is a ballroom that was shut up many years ago after the party which ended in Mattie's parents being killed in a car wreck. Now the ballroom is slipping into decay - the linen tablecloths are yellowed and tattered, the flower arrangements are dead and desiccated. The champagne bottles and glasses are smashed.

When GrammyLou dies, Mattie inherits the house and she and Stan decide to spend the summer cleaning it out preparatory to selling it. Mattie is completely unprepared for the things she begins finding.... things that lead her to seek out the few people from her past who might have clues. But nothing prepares her for the reality that awaits her: that her life was built on lies and that she was raised by a monster.

You can read more about it on my blog, too.

Welcome to KindleBoards, Kathleen, and congratulations on your book! :)

Please note that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference. :) )

--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.

--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. . . follow the directions there to be listed. :)

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