Ghost Stories...And The Unexplained - My October 2011 Title Release (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: Imagine that you are seven years old – a mere child – alone in the house after your parents leave for work. The clock on the mantle ticks loudly, ominously counting off the seconds. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Quite suddenly, your ears are pricked by the sound of chains dragging heavily across the floor and down the long hallway of your parent’s home. The chains seem to clank and tangle as they cross the threshold from The Beyond. Terror surges through your body, you are barely breathing. Your vision sharpens. Down the dark hallway leading to your parent’s bedroom you watch as a translucent figure begin to materialize. You recognize the manifestation as your grandfather who has passed over... On your sixteenth birthday you hold the clammy fingertips of your classmates at a slumber party séance, having waited until midnight to summon the power of The Ouija. Your friends gasp as the candles that throw shadows across the room flicker and the lens into The Other World begins to sweep across the board. Ghost Stories…And The Unexplained, is a collection of seven contemporary ghost stories that recount my own experiences with The Unexplained supernatural occurrences in my life. GHOST STORIES…And The Unexplained, by Emily Hill will release on September 24, 2011 on Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook. Cover design by Kathi Humphries http://kathihumphries.com/
Cheap Books, Cheap Dates: eBook Pricing for the Sludge Crowd (Professional & Technical)

Description: As an IndiePub Coach, one who teaches writers into the world of IndieAuthorship, I am hearing a lot about eBook pricing...here's MY opinion on that topic:
Ghost Stories From Beyond The Grave - Excerpt (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: This excerpt is from the last chapter of 'Ghost Stories And Tales of Terror' entitled, Spirited Pirates ~ 1863 Civil War. It describes the descent into hell that a member of Ohio's 62nd Regiment faces as his greed overtakes his better judgment as the Union Army pushes against the Confederate coastline of the Carolina's.
A.V. Harrison Declares 'IndiePub Is The New Black' (Reference)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: From time to time I bring my IndiePub Coach thoughts to Goodreads...on the eve of Greg Mortenson's outing as a literary fraud...this is one of those occasions. I spent 15 years researching an historical fiction novel - although it would have done better commercially in the non-fiction category. Why? Because THAT was the truth.

Emily Hill asked a question about Water Ghosts:
Water Ghosts by Shawna Yang Ryan
Was this book professionally edited? I ask because it seems to be a translation that {contrary to the Boston Globe praise, "prose undulates gracefully..."] is a mess of past-tense confusion. "The stores will have lifted their blinds and opened their doors to the raised wooden sidewalks that fall in and out of light beneath the balconies..." Dear Readers, DID the STORES lift their blinds...etc, etc Oy!!.

Compelling, intricate story tragically rushed.

"Orphan Train" could have been so much more; and garners its 4-star reviews because of its exposure of a hidden chapter in American history and the survival strength of its protagonists.

Diana Hockley Hi Emily,
Thank you for adding The Naked Room to your "to read" list! As this is an Australian novel, there is a Glossary of Terms at the back of the book for when you come up against an Aussie-ism :) I have listed your book, Jenkins; Confederate Road Runner to read but it may be some time before I can read it. It looks as though I shall have to return my kindle wifi and get a kindle 3G reader because I can't hook into a server here in Australia. This is infuriating, but I guess I'll have to bite the bullet and just do it!

Diana

Emily Hill What a nice review of Jenkins. I literally stumbled on a mention of 'Jenkins: Confederate Blockade Runner' by AvidReaderBookReviews.com blogger, Lynnette Phillips and was as grateful for the mention as thrilled to read, a month later, that she truly enjoyed my debut novel.

Thank you, Lynnette...How nice of You http://avidbookreviews.blogspot.com/2...
