Self-Publishing Book Spotlight: Nightmare at Camp Forrestwood by Kelli Sue Landon

We at Outskirts Press fully understand the pride our authors take in self-publishing a book, and we share that deep pride with them. So, it’s with that great pride that we feature another of our self-published authors and her latest work: Kelli Sue Landon’s action/adventure, Nightmare at Camp Forrestwood.

In Nightmare at Camp Forrestwood, Outskirts Press author Kelli Sue Landon shows great insight into all the little moments of insecurity a new student — or even an old one — has in high school. With them she sets a pertinently anxious backdrop for the truly frightening events that follow.

Holly Jensen is a new student at Madison High entering her senior year and she’s never felt so uncomfortable in her life. No one seems to like her. She hopes she’ll be able to break the ice with at least some of her classmates during the upcoming senior class camping trip. In fact, she hears that Mark Ifft, the hottest boy in school, will be there and she sets her sights on him.

The trip starts off fun and Holly and classmate Mindy Janz move from being acquaintances to fast friends. Then the phones at camp stop working, classmates begin to disappear and it’s clear a lot has gone terribly wrong.

There’s a killer among Holly’s classmates. She concocts a plan to trap the killer before even more of her classmates die, and escape — if she lives long enough.


Kelli Sue Landon writes short stories and is the author of the novel Sudden Moves. She lives in Peoria, Illinois, and works for the United States Post Office.

Self-Publishing Virtual Book Tour: Sudden Moves by Kelli Sue Landon

Outskirts Press author, Kelli Sue Landon, is taking her latest book, Sudden Moves, on tour – a virtual tour, that is. She will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead so keep your eyes peeled to learn more about her and her book.

Luckily for us, Kelly was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of Sudden Moves.



Sudden Moves book cover

OP: Tell us a little bit about Sudden Moves. What is it about?

KSL: Sixteen year old Michelle Martin grows suspicious when classmate, Katie Brashers, doesn’t return after a Spring Break trip to Florida.  Michelle is worried because she let Katie borrow a family heirloom that needed to be returned to her.  She talks it over with her best friend, Tami, and Katie’s boyfriend, Brad, who is crushed over her sudden departure.  Together, they snoop around the neighborhood and learn more and more about what happened to Katie and her family.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

KSL: I had the idea in my head since I was in high school.  I started it as a story, but it evolved into a full length novel..

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

KSL: Teens or women who will be taken back to their high school years.

OP: What is special about your book?  What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

KSL: This book is about regular teenagers, not the supernatural or vampires, which seems to be the norm right now.  They react as normal teens would react in their situation.  It’s a YA mystery, but evolves into a more adult finale.  These kids learn a lot on their quest to find Katie.

OP: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

KSL:  This is my first one, but I have another one written.  It will be sent off for publication this spring.  It takes place on a weekend camping trip – a slasher type of story with a whodunit angle.

OP: Thanks for your time, Kelli! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!
