I just finished a recent release by Alex Dunn, School Monitor. A young adult psychological thriller about boarding school and bullying, it has just the right twists to keep you reading. However, if you don’t want those twists spoiled, do not read the blurb on Amazon! I have given you an amended blurb below.

According to the prospectus, this is a Tudor manor house, and there is currently a collection to repair the bell tower. If there is a collection to install Wi-Fi or behead a few vomiting gargoyles that have procreated over most of the turrets — I might donate.

School Monitor, Alex Dunn

  1. Great tease!

  2. Interesting one, indeed! 🙂

  3. Interesting. Would the theme of bullying make this book suitable for teens?

  4. Vomiting, procreating gargoyles are not really my thing, although I was tempted before that by the almost stalking, psychological thriller aspects of the storyline (yes, I did cheat and look at the full premise – I couldn’t help myself!).

    This one has the ideal great storyline mix for todays YA market and should be a hit for the author. The cover is also really well designed for the genre it represents.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • The vomiting, procreating gargoyles are just Rich’s flight of fancy. They are just the stone gargoyles on the school, and don’t figure into the story any further than that. No paranormal elements.

  5. I never heard of this book before but it has my interest.

  6. Your teaser is funny. I enjoy psychological thrillers and this sounds like it would be good. 🙂 Thanks for the head’s up about the Amazon blurb! So many of them give away too much these days.

  7. Sounds interesting! Happy reading!

  8. Ooo… I like the sound of those gargoyles. I hope this one continues to engross and enthrall:)

  9. This sure sounds thrilling. I like the writing already!

  10. Sounds like a really interesting thriller! I hope that you enjoy it. 🙂

  11. Sounds so tempting…and I love the cover! Here’s mine: “THE LONDON TRAIN”

  12. Sounds like fun. Here’s my Tuesday intro and teaser: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1i9

  13. You gotta watch out for the procreating gargoyles. They get everywhere. For sure I’d donate for wi-fi.

  14. I do like a good psychological thriller.

Tell me what you think!
