Cheops Books LLC: 10 Years On Kindle:
Did you know that this autumn marks ten years of Kindle? I looked it up in my journals, and I bought the first Kindle the first month it was being sold in November of 2007. I hadn’t read any news stories about it. I just came across the device suddenly being marketed on Amazon. I knew that for years manufacturers had been coming up with various e devices, none of which caught on.
I said to myself when I read about Kindle, “This is it! It seems like it will work.” And this was before I read a single news story. And I was right, of course. The real key, of course, was that Amazon already had all these books to sell.
We here at Cheops Books LLC started to list titles on Kindle almost right away in 2008. It took us four years until the late spring of 2012 to get all our titles listed. We even did hardback collections of all the young adult novels. We also started to publish Edward Ware Thrillers at War on Kindle. Now all our titles are Kindle exclusives. You can’t buy them any other way except on our own website: http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org.
Ever since we have been continuing to list our titles on Kindle under two authors: Linda Cargill and Dora Benley. We have just published Silver Wolf Moon. On November 1 we will be publishing Dark 1 by Dora Benley.

Point Horror and Pool Party:
Another Scholastic Point Horror tale by Linda Cargill is Pool Party, published originally as part of the line. It is just perfect for Halloween.
Sharon’s party should have been perfect. The event of the year. After all, it was being held in the indoor/outdoor pool at her mother’s exclusive new hotel. It was definitely a party any senior would love to be invited to.
But somebody had invitations delivered before they were supposed to be mailed. And they went to all the people Sharon hardly knew. Even though things seemed kind of weird, Sharon decided to go with the flow. How bad could things be?
Sharon should never have believed that everything would be okay. She should have known that something was very, very wrong. Because now some of her guests might end up doing the dead man’s float — for real in this young adult murder thriller originally published by Scholastic USA in the Point Horror line. It was also published in a French edition, Lauberge Maudite. Now it is brought to you by Edward Thrillers YA, an imprint of Cheops Books, LLC.

Point Horror: The Surfer and Pool Party
As Halloween gets nearer and nearer, we think not only of Horror Week on Goodreads but of the old Scholastic Point Horror Line and its wonderfully scary books for teenagers and adults who like good, clean fun and big scares that make you scream. Cheops Books, LLC has republished several of these classic Point Horror titles by Linda Cargill such as The Surfer and Pool Party. Soon under her pen name, Dora Benley, we will be republishing Dark 1 and Dark 2, which were Point Horror titles in Great Britain.
Jessie had never seen her before. The beautiful girl who seemed to get a thrill out of surfing on a stormy sea. Maybe she’d been lucky in the past, but Jessie saw the girl’s luck run out. Jessie saw her drown.
So who’s the new girl in town? The one who doesn’t know who she is — or where she came from. The one who seems to cast a spell over everyone else she meets? Has the beautiful surfer come back from the dead? Or is it something else?
This young adult horror novel by Linda Cargill was originally published in the Scholastic USA Point Horror Line and the Scholastic UK Point Horror Line. It was also published by Cora Verlag in German as the Sea Witch. There was also an Italian edition. After selling 200,000 copies worldwide this bestselling novel is now available in a Kindle edition, published by Edward Ware Thrillers YA, an imprint of Cheops Books, LLC.
