A Scary New Kids' E-Book Hits The Web Today

I just bought a new e-book, written by my friend Anita Laydon Miller.  It's a middle-grade novel, and priced at just $0.99 how could I not add it to my Kindle library? (NOTE: Done.)
It's called "A Scary Good Book" and based on the description it looks like an entertaining thriller for younger readers:

Twelve-year-old Hannah Stone tells everyone she’s “okay,” but that’s a total lie. Two years ago her dad was killed by a hit-and-run driver. The detective in charge of the case never found the driver, but he somehow managed to get Hannah’s mom to fall in love with him. The jerk. And speaking of love, Hannah’s developed a major crush on Ollie Ortega—he’s her best friend and the only one she can talk to—a crush on Ollie is so not a good idea.

Also not a good idea? Searching for a missing person with no help from the police. But that’s exactly what Hannah does when she finds messages in library books—underlined words that point her in the direction of someone who needs her.

And, suddenly, Hannah’s even further from okay. She breaks into a library, gets caught in a kidnapper’s web, and is stalked by her dad’s killer, all in an effort to save a life…but can she save herself, too?

Thanks so much for supporting me! This is a good book. There, I said it. Is that rude? I don't care. The story is fun and exciting and my "test" kids have loved it. Also, for people who don't have ereaders, there are other ways to read ebooks. Go to website ( and look at the Ways to Read Ebook page for options.

That does look good, Rick! Will check it out.

And no, Anita, it is not rude. Why on earth would I want to read a book that even the author doesn't think is good? Pimp your book! Good luck.

I agree with Laurel: not rude at all.

What would be rude is "Hey, spend your money on my book and take your time to read it but honestly, it's not that good."


I'm looking froward to cracking the cover. You can count on Amazon / GoodReads reviews when I'm done...

Got it! Will pimp with pride. :)
