I would like to take the time to announce a new release on Amazon.com - Kindle Select program.

Free Promotion is going on at this time. 01/04/2013 - 01/08/2013

Road Salt by Linda Nelson



There's nothing wrong with getting high, or so Carol and Karla felt in this Teen Contemporary, that is until Rod got high on Bath Salts.

Karla does not have a good relationship with her mother just like Carol. The two teen girls quickly become friends with two new boys on the block. They suggest taking a short vacation from parents and school and go on a road trip.

This trip quickly turns from being a fun time with friends and lovers to the worst time in their lives as they make their way across several states before it all falls apart. The mutual feeling about getting high begins to change for both Carol and Karla when Carol's boyfriend begins using Bath Salts. Their road trip goes to hell because of his usage of this new designer drug that neither of the girls have heard about.

The first book in this series is Friends of Choice.

From the Author:

Wings from Ashes is a series about the downward spiral of drug addiction and will have a recovery/romance theme for the last four books planned in the series.

Linda is a member of RWA and NHRWA since 2012.

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder 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, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--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 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. 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.

The Story Behind the Book
Linda was watching the news last summer when she saw her son's counselor speaking about the dangers of a designer drug that was hitting our streets. She wanted everyone to know how dangerous Bath Salts was.
This gave Linda the idea to write Road Salt.
While this book is completely fictional, the main idea of the teens taking the road trip south was sparked by an incident that happened in her daugter's life several years ago. Giving the reason why her daughter said, "Good book, but bad memories."

Please note:

Bath Salts, which are referred to in this story are not the ones you put in your bathtub. They are not the Calgon take me away Bath Salts. The substance that is being reffered to happens to be a substance that was and is being sold in Head Shops around the world and online. It is the nickname it has recieved. This substance has other names too, like Cloud 9, Plant Food, and Ivory Wave, just to name a few. It is a very dangerous substance.
This book was written in hopes to get the word out as to how dangerous this substance really is. And no, it does not create Zombies, that is a myth.
