I get lots of views to my book and short stories but people only seem to pull the trigger on the free ones. I thought I would put the descriptions that I currently have on Smashwords and see what you think about them…looking for advice on how to improve them and fill them with juicy hooks!
So here they are:
1. Book description
Is it post traumatic stress or paranormal terror?
It started one evening in a quiet neighborhood in Iowa with five year old Liam Randolf playing with his best friend in the backyard. Playing with matches. The evening ended with a horrible fire that burned up his friend, Rich Cooper, yet left him unharmed.
His family escapes the painful memories by moving to the east coast. But Liam’s disastrous memories manage to manifest themselves into an evil dragon that seems hell-bent on ruining his childhood by keeping him fearful of fires and its next attack.
As Liam ages, the dragon blocks a ghostly voice in the night from helping him find out the truth about the fire and the family that moved away right after the terrible tragedy happened.
After over a decade of fear, Liam, with the assistance of his only friend, Kenny, is compelled to prove his sanity and silence the whispers by setting off on a surreal journey back to the Midwest to confront the dragon that haunts him and find his childhood friend.
Along the way, this awkward young man learns about himself and builds the self-confidence to finally rise above his past. But will this newfound courage be enough to stop the dragon and save his life or will Kenny fall to the same fate as Rich did so many years ago?
2. Short story description:
This short story tells the bizarre tale of two brothers: one obsessed with gardening and one obsessed with saving him from the evil that has taken possession of the garden. As one brother chases the other into the garden, the garden comes to life to chase him back out and destroy him.
