Mama - Robin Morris

Bio:  Robin Morris has had short stories published in several anthologies and online magazines. She live near Los Angeles with two cats and a dream of climbing out of poverty someday.

Product description:

As the Conover family drives from L.A. to Chicago, increasingly strange things begin to happen. Nine year old Michael sees a face form in the glass of the car's window. Fourteen year old Alison sees two creepy children outside the family's motel room. A car follows them, then purposely hits them and speeds away.

Mama has found the Conovers and is using them as a lesson for her children. Mama is relentless, Mama is powerful, and Mama will not stop until the Conovers are dead.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
I hope I have created a story of creeping dread, which makes the reader feel more and more tension as it goes on. It also has car chases.

Q: Why did you go indie?
This book was finished when an agent I met promised to look at it. She kept her promise, then actually signed me! I was happy, I was on my way to having my book in bookstores! A year later, all her attempts to sell the book were turned down. She got so discouraged about the state of publishing, among other things, that she quite being an agent. I saw self-publishing as the only option left.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
Stephen King, of course. Dean Koontz, Peter Straub, Richard Laymon.
