The Eyes That Moved - Cover Reveal!

Rachelle M. N. Shaw

It's finally here! Today I get to share the cover of my short story with you guys. :)

My short story is available for pre-order on Amazon and has an official release date of May 16th. It will be available elsewhere (Smashwords and such) later in the fall, but I'm participating in KDP Select for the next few months, so it will be exclusive to Amazon during that time. However, it is available through Kindle Unlimited for free and can be shared with another person through Amazon's lending program.


Kendra is a young girl who has a knack for spotting unusual trinkets and abandoned houses that hold treasures of their own. When she meets Adam, a fellow sleuth and collector, they decide to embark on their biggest adventure yet: the Whitson house. The house is a marvel, and its secrets are even juicier than Kendra had imagined. The third and final floor of the house holds something Kendra has been waiting a lifetime for. But she may have signed on for more than she bargained. There's a darkness in the house that wasn't there before, a pair of eyes in every corner, watching, waiting for her time to come. And Adam isn't at all who he claimed to be.

"The Eyes That Moved" falls under the paranormal/horror genre. It revolves heavily around the psychological aspect of some of our most basic childhood fears with a modern twist.
