From the Author

(2/16/2012) Well, it's been a wonderful experiment but in order to maximize current readership, the embedded audio and video features originally planned for this Kindle version of Scratch has been pulled. It turns out Kindle Fire readers weren't able to open the EBook at all.  That's a shame because it's encouraged to do so (at least for Kindle for IOS). Turns out, if you own an Android with Kindle APP, you could have seen and heard the full effect right in your EBook. On your PC with the Kindle Cloud or Kindle for PC, you would need to click the links. The glory of EBooks ... as you can see ... the update is live and real-time without a single wasted tree. (Smile).

(2/11/2012) - The development of 'Scratch' was a labor of love and proof that I have more material lying around the house than I thought. Scratch was supposed to be a short film that I shot about 3-4 years ago. The completed video, sans special effects, sat in my files for years because there were elements of it that I just didn't like and effect capabilities that just weren't available at the time. 
These days, I could have done Scratch a lot easier, but instead, with 2012 my year to put out all of my work as an EBook, what better time to use the existing audio to incorporate into a Kindle EBook?
That was a struggle in itself. while the technology is there, it isn't there for EVERYBODY so when coding the EBook for retail, I had to make sure everyone had a chance at get to experience the added sounds. 
I'm no stranger to creating audio theater. DesktopEpics' Audeeoh! Theater was designed just to do more work like the 'Shyster Club' (over 2 million downloads and counting). I tried to give Butta' a shot at being an audio drama ... I'll post some of that shortly.
With or without the audio, you can enjoy the EBook. At the end of the first few sections, you can hear the audio theater version of the section you just read. Also, there are a section or two that can be heard while your reading to give the effect of BEING part of the terror. LOL ... such as 'demon walk'.
You also get a cute intro and outro by yours truly. 
I hope you enjoy!

From the Inside Flap

Audio and video available for ALL eReaders with an internet connection.

This is an AMAZING suspenseful short story. I could not put it down until I had completed it. It will definitely have you on the edge of your seat. It is a MUST READ! If I had any complaint it would be that it was too short! Great story!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! July 10, 2012
By Pengy
Format:Kindle Edition
Downloaded this book, and wanted to write a review as soon as I finished it. Loved it so much! Story centers around 4 yr old Keilee. Typical 4 yr old girl who witnesses her parents fighting over money. While this story was wonderful, I didn't listen to the audio, due to the fact that I didn't want to be terrified. The story itself though was fantastic. Could not put it down till I finished it. I really enjoyed the fact that it was written from a 4 yr olds perspective. I think that was what made it even better, as children, most of us feared the bogeyman and what would happen. What happens is worse than the bogeyman. There is also promise of a sequel which I am looking forward to.

I'm not a scary movie watcher so I was a bit skeptic to read this story,but nevertheless I said it's short it's daylight I can do it!!! Lol I could so identify as a only child growing up the boogeyman is very real in a child's mind. I cheered her on as she fought the boogeyman!!
Thank you Corey Burned for giving me a ride to the past and conquering my fears!! I'm a big girl now! Thank goodness I have a cast iron skillet to!

I really enjoyed this short story. I find myself looking forward to the re-emergence of Keilee-Ann in "Abduction Hunter" that was mentioned near the end of the narrative. Now, she's all growed up and she still has a score to settle...!

Just good old-fashioned story telling at its finest!
