Super book sale

The Prodigies of YA II coverHey all, excited to share a fantastic sale iTunes is offering for the next month. It’s practically a bundleapooza because the iTunes bookstore is bundling hundreds of books together and selling them dirt cheap.

I’m happy to announce that Wakefield (Mad World, Book 1) was selected by our wonderful publisher, MuseItUp, to be included in a bundle of Young Adult e-books. So, for the next month, you can buy four full length YA novels for only .99 cents.

The bundle with Wakefield is Prodigies of YA II (because we’re in Muse’s second YA bundle). The four titles are:

Joshua’s Tree by N.W. Harris. Chased by flesh-eating mutants and aided by an overbearing warrior princess, brainy Joshua must save the future—from himself.

Relocated by Margaret Fieland. On planet Aleyne, a teenage boy discovers a terrorist plot and learns more than his own life is at risk.

Palace of the Twelve Pillars by Christina Weigand. When Prince Joachim is kidnapped and twin Brandan attempts a rescue, both will search their faith and familial loyalty.

Wakefield (Mad World, Book One) by Erin Callahan & Troy H. Gardner. Troubled teens Max and Astrid bond while questioning the true nature of the psychiatric treatment facility where they are forced to live.

As you can tell, there’s a variety of sub-genres here. Magic, fantasy, paranormal. You check it out here at the iStore.

Sylvanville Spirits lowered price

Hi all. I did some tweaking on the paperback version of The Sylvanville Spirits. Basically I adjusted the spacing (or leading for those in the biz), which resulted in a more professional look and less pages. Good news, since there’s less paper used to print it, I’m passing the savings on to you.

Control Room released

The Control Room, my 12,000 horror story is now available as an ebook!

Control Room 333x500

The Locked Door Series is MuseItUp Publishing’s version of the Twilight Zone. Each short story stands alone, is written by a different author, and is meant to make you keep the lights on when you go to bed. In this story, recent college graduate Bethany finds herself living back at home and facing a mountain of school loans.

To make ends meet, Bethany accepts a job watching live footage from a supposedly haunted building. The owner wants them to find evidence of the ghost he believes killed his daughter decades before.

As the days progress and Bethany spends more time watching the residents of the apartment, she finds herself drawn deeper into the history of the building and the lives of its people.

When strange occurrences begin stacking up, Bethany suspects something paranormal may be happening in the old apartment building after all. Can she distance herself in time, or has the watcher already fallen under the apartment’s spell?

Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, the iTunes bookstore, Smashwords, MuseItUp Publishing, and lots more.

Check out my Chucky book

I’ve mentioned a few times on here that I was working on another non-fiction book, and I published it today. I’m very happy to share with you Examination of Chucky: An Unauthorized Dissection of the Child’s Play Series.

ChuckyKindleCover

Blurb: In this unauthorized collection of film theory essays, author Troy H. Gardner closely examines the history of pop culture icon Chucky the killer doll. 

With a look at all six films in the series, as well as drawing from the horror genre as a whole, Gardner explores such topics as character studies of Andy Barclay and Tiffany, the psychology of Chucky’s family, and how each film’s opening is constructed. 

This is the perfect book for any Chucky lover, horror enthusiast, or slasher fan.

The ebook is available now at Amazon and Smashwords, and coming soon to Barnes & Noble and other major retailers. The paperback version should be on Amazon in a few days. There’s already a page for it up on Goodreads, and at my personal site TroyHGardner.com.

This was a lot of fun to write and gave me an excuse to rewatch these great movies.  As a warning, this covers the latest film, Curse of Chucky, which is a triumphant return to the franchise’s horror roots and should be watched before reading this.

The Control Room pre-order

My upcoming horror ebook The Control Room is now available for pre-order at MuseItUp Publishing’s newly revamped bookstore. Check it out here. If you pre-order, you won’t have to remember when it’s released (Oct. 11) and you save 50 cents. Pretty good deal.

A note on the bookstore: because of confusion with customers having multiple devices, if you buy any of their ebooks, you get access to the file in all platform types. So no one will accidentally buy it as a kindle if they want it on their iPad and then have to buy it again.

Good news for those of you who haven’t purchased the ebook edition of Examining Sleepaway Camp: An Unauthorized Dissection of the Cult Horror Series yet. It’s now available at the low price of $2.99.
