This supernatural thriller is a steal at only 99 cents! Angry spirits awake during a Civil war reenactment - and a young boy is caught in the middle.

"I've become quite the fan of Scott Nicholson. Being in the South, there's a tenor to ghost stories that doesn't exist elsewhere. Drummer Boy exemplifies the Southern Ghost Story. Civil War spirits remain in the mountains above a small town, and all the locals know to beware. But these ghosts have as much "bite" as "bark." With knowledge both of modern social issues and Civil War lore, Nicholson keeps you guessing until the end. A great read! " -- MJ

DRUMMER BOY: A Supernatural Thriller

According to legend, the Hole is home to a group of Civil War soldiers buried by a long-ago avalanche. Everyone, especially Vernon Ray's dad, laughs at him...because he's different.

On the eve of an annual Civil War re-enactment, the town of Titusville prepares for a mock battle. But inside the Hole, disturbed spirits are rising from their dark slumber, and one of them is heading home.

And Vernon Ray stands between the battle lines of the living and the dead, caught between a world where he doesn't a belong and world from which he can never return...

"This book has some excellent suggestions for how to organize your life and home. The tips were very do-able and even if you aren't able to implement them all, just doing a few will make a big difference." -- amylou

Having an organized day means having a productive day. When we are organized in the right way, we can accomplish more because we don’t waste time searching for the next thing to do. Being organized means working in a way that is ordered and calm. It means avoiding frantic multitasking that leads not to getting more done, but getting a few things done poorly or halfway.

Organization leads to productivity in our entire day. We are tempted to think only of our work day as yielding a product, but really our home time is productive as well. It produces food for us and our families. We want to produce a tidy place to live. We want to produce leisure time and relaxation.

That is why this book helps you organize at work and at home. It doesn’t feel great to go from a clean desk at work to a messy refrigerator at the end of the day. In this book you will find routines to organize your time and methods to organize the physical spaces in which you work and live.

Now let’s get organized.
