The Legend of Ghost Dog Island
$3.99 ebook
Moving is nothing new for ten-year-old Nikki Landry. 
Her fisherman father relocates their raggedy old houseboat
 several times a year in search of better crabbing spots. 
However, their latest move has brought her to a 
mysterious bayou where she feels something is watching her from a nearby island. 

Nikki learns of a local legend about something sinister
 inhabiting those swamps, stealing the souls of dogs…
which would explain the strange howling sounds. 
Papa reassures her there’s nothing on the island 
but gators and snakes. He would know. 
He’s spent his whole life trapping and fishing those bayous and swamps.
 But Nikki and her new friends uncover strange happenings
 from years ago that may have started the old legend, 
and town folks aren’t talking. Then her beloved beagle goes missing.

Join Nikki as she seeks to discover the 
real truth behind the legend of Ghost Dog Island…
before it’s too late.
