Kindle INDIEpendence Highlight: Rita Morse and the Sinister Shadow by Holly Hook

Book title: Rita Morse and the Sinister Shadow
Holly Hook

Short Blurb: Fourteen year-old Rita Morse is the kind of girl that the teen-hating Shadow Regime hates. She won't put up with crap that isn’t fair. Like the ban on teens her own cousin, Jerry, put up at his video game store. After she toilet-papers the place to get back at him, the Regime, an army of immortals working to oppress teens all over the world, adds her to their list of threats.

That’s not good. Turns out that banning kids from stores is the least of their evil.

Because the Regime’s enemies always disappear.

Now Rita’s in the biggest trouble of her life. She’s being stalked by shadow people. Threatened. Even nearly kidnapped. The Regime's not the only danger: they control countless humans around the world--including her cousin. There’s nowhere to turn.

Rita must learn the Shadow Regime’s reason for their war on teens—and her—or she won't make it through her first week of high school. Buy it now!

When did you know you wanted to be an author?

Since I was about four years old.

Why do you Indie publish?

Because I want to have control of my books, and I don't want to spend decades waiting for someone else to decide to publish it.

What inspired you to write your book?

This book is inspired by some stories I wrote in high school to entertain my friends.

What advice do you have for parents to encourage their kids to read more?

Take them to the library to start. That's how I got into reading. Summer reading programs are good, too.

Thanks, Holly.
