IF I WERE YOUR MONSTER

A father tells a bedtime story to his young daughter, sharing different kinds of spooky creatures and teaching her how to overcome fear. In this fully illustrated tale, the monsters are protectors against the bullies and mean people of the world. A great read-aloud book for youngsters or a fun journey into e-book art.

Available in color where supported by the specific user device. 24 screens of art, equivalent of 24 full-color pages in print. DRM-free and professionally formatted by Dellaster Design. (Note: the art will appear in black-and-white on hand-held Kindles. We will continue to revise this book as the technology evolves, but graphic quality is limited for Kindle at present)

Scott Nicholson is author of 12 grown-up novels, including the young-adult series OCTOBER GIRLS and the collection FLOWERS, as well as CURSED!, THE RED CHURCH, and DRUMMER BOY. His daughter Claire helped with the idea.
Lee Davis is a writer and illustrator in the mountains of Virginia. He is currently at work on a collaboration with Nicholson called TOO MANY WITCHES.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This is a bedtime story that grown-ups will enjoy reading to their children. The imaginative pictures and creepy-fun monsters teach children to face their fears and bullies and the real monsters of the world. There’s a little bit of a Dr. Seuss flavor to this story.

My daughter loves this book and we read it often! The graphics are great and my six year old laughed from start to finish.

I loved this book – I wish it had been written when my kids were still little. Although sweet, it is a little twisted, which makes it the perfect book to read to your children if you’re tired of the dull sappiness of “Goodnight, Moon” and the like. Kids will love this; it’s full of monsters and ghosts and goblins, but it’s not scary at all. A great book to read to your kids if they are scared of the monsters in their closets. The illustrations are charming, but not too adorable. The monsters are drawn as monsters, but they are friendly monsters who won’t hurt children. Excellent book; I enjoyed it very much.

About The Author


Author Scott Nicholson has written 12 thrillers, 60 short stories, four comics series, and six screenplays. He’s also a freelance editor and journalist. He lives in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, where he tends an organic garden, successfully eludes stalkers, and generally lives the dream. He’s online at www.hauntedcomputer.com.

Nicholson has written hundreds of songs and poems and was a musician in a former life. a newspaper reporter, he’s won three North Carolina Press Association awards. He’s had the usual collection of odd jobs: dishwasher, carpenter, painter, paranormal investigator, baseball card dealer, and radio announcer. Now he haphazardly trades words for magic beans and uses “haphazardly” as often as possible while decrying the overuse of adverbs.

Entering the digital era with a vengeance, Nicholson is releasing original titles and collections while conspiring to release interactive books in the near future, building audio files, video, and collaborative fiction projects. He operates Haunted Computer Books and Indie Books Blog to bring a variety of voices to readers.

Nicholson won the grand prize in the international Writers of the Future contest in 1999. That same year, he was first runner-up for the Darrell Award. He studied Creative Writing at Appalachian State University and UNC-Chapel Hill. He has been an officer of Mystery Writers of America and Horror Writers Association and is a member of International Thriller Writers and inaugural member of the Killer Thriller Band.

Unfortunately, they never taught him to write: he had 105 rejections before his first story sale and over 400 before he sold a novel. He hasn’t learned much from his mistakes but thinks he’ll probably improve with practice. If nothing else, he’s become a better liar.

His website www.hauntedcomputer.com features author interviews, articles, and fiction excerpts. Bad relationship advice. Humor. Gardening tips. Subliminal tricks to sell his books. That sort of thing.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Scott Nicholson and ENT appreciate it.
