I hope I'm posting in the right place. I'm a new author and I published my book on Kindle last month. It's aimed at the 9-12 year age group, but as far as I'm concerned, should appeal to adults and children alike. Here's the synopsis should you care to know more:

Agathea Fulstropp is looking forward to a luxury break in the Caribbean with her parents, but is livid when they announce that the trip has to be cancelled due to work commitments! So instead of spending six weeks sunning herself on a tropical beach, Thea – as she insists on being called – finds herself unceremoniously packed up, and sent off to stay with a grandfather she barely knows for the entire summer! But it turns out to be the best summer of her life when her grandfather has a strange reunion with a mysterious childhood friend, and she is given the opportunity of a lifetime.

To visit a world beyond the stars, and become Earth’s first student to be enrolled in an experimental Inter-Planetary Education Programme at the Firestone Academy, where lessons in telepathy, mind-reading and astral projection are the norm.

Things, however, are not as straightforward as they seem. One of her fellow students makes no secret of the fact that he despises her, and will stop at nothing to make her leave…she is having increasingly disturbing, vivid dreams…and just who is that hideously deformed cave creature, and more to the point, what does it want with her?

The book is available from Amazon and has just been published in paperback too. The links are as follows:

Happy reading and hope to chat to some of you soon.

Congrats on your new book. Here's hoping you have great luck with it. My MG novel is selling well on Nook but Kindle is kinda pathetic sales wise. At least for me. I sell a few print copies here and there thru Amzn.

Linda David (lindzz) | 10 comments Thanks, appreciate the support. Hope things pick up for both of use as far as sales are concerned, especially on Kindle - like you, mine are very slow. Hoping once the print version is on the Amazon site, things will improve.
