Priced at 99 cents, The Psi Squad is a novella-length story of three middle school kids who realize they have unique abilities. Here's the blurb:

J.B. has been bothered by colorful balls of light floating around him as far back as he can recall. Doctors blame it on strained rods and cones in his eyes, but he's never believed that diagnosis. As if seeing things weren't troublesome enough, now he's the new kid in town starting middle school with no friends. His grandparents aren't exactly excited he's moved in with them, either. When he spots a fellow student who appears to interact with one of the glowing spots only he is supposed to be able to see, J.B. decides he must befriend the strange girl and investigate the peculiar coincidence. But some things are easier said than done...

Check out the sample at Amazon by clicking The Psi Squad: Book One or the image below!

Mark,

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.

So, the recent free promotion has yielded a new 5-Star review. Sounds like a win-win to me!

I hope everyone who managed to snag a free copy thoroughly enjoys Book One in the series and comes back in a few months for the release of Book Two: "The Atherton Ghost." Don't worry, I'll keep you posted!

Another 5-Star review for "The Psi Squad!"

Book Two, "The Atherton Ghost," is at the halfway point as I type and I'm thoroughly enjoying being able to develop the relationships between J.B., Rhea & William (aka Mole). It should be available this fall on Amazon!

Yet another 5-Star review on Amazon! I'm beginning to wonder if my Mother has learned to work her computer...

"The Psi Squad" is slowly gaining traction and readers seem eager for the next installment. The interest level makes it that much easier to find the motivation to keep on tapping out book two, The Atherton Ghost.

Pinehurst Elementary School just ordered 10 copies of "The Psi Squad" to replace the one I had given to the school when the paperback became available. Seems it's been checked out so many times in the last few months the book is starting to fall apart.

Ah, kids. It's nice to be appreciated by the core target audience!

Only two more chapters to go until "The Psi Squad: The Atherton Ghost" enters the editing phase!

J.B., Rhea and William are tangling with a ghost at the historic Atherton Homestead and making new friends along the way. But their biggest challenge remains learning how to get along with each other.

More to come soon!

The rough draft of the second book in "The Psi Squad" series is almost complete!

The Squad's second ghostly adventure will turn out slightly longer than Book One, and there are a few new characters who just might become permanent fixtures in the series. Writing the first book was fun, but this time around has proven to be an absolute delight! The primary Psi Squad members are gradually learning more about each other, while we learn more about how their extra-sensory skills can be put to good use. And is that a new member of the Squad I see? Maybe, maybe not. The book isn't finished yet, so even I don't know.

Check back for more updates over the coming weeks!
