YAPC would like to welcome Shelby White to the blog today. She is here to share some information and an excerpt about her book Ouija Board. If this looks like something you would enjoy, please go get a copy!
When Alycia and her three best friends bought a Ouija board for some late night entertainment, they came in contact with something that defies all reason. They find themselves faced with questions that would make others run in fear. Delving into this frightening unknown, they soon discover they are dealing with a force more powerful than they could possibly understand.
Enlisting some knowledgeable help on supernatural entities, they are introduced to a world they never thought existed. As they try to maintain the normalcy of their summer break and figure out how to rid themselves of this other worldly being they realize their lives will never be the same and that some games aren’t meant to be played with.
Buy The Ouija Board:
“What happened?” Sarah demanded.
“I was going to put the game board away and the dial started moving. I didn’t get even close to touching it.” Lauren’s breaths were so quick, I thought she was going to pass out.
Just then the dial moved again and everyone stepped back. It spelled out the letters J-W.
“Hey, those are the same letters on the box!” Sarah said, astonished. “I don’t believe this; there has to be some other way it is moving! Maybe magnets?”
As she picked up the board, the dial started to shake, and Sarah panicked, dropping it back onto the ground. The dial didn’t even budge; it was stuck like glue.
“What’s going on?” Lauren asked with an expression of worry on her face. “This isn’t happening!” She said even louder in a state of fear.
“The directions say put your hands on the dial?” Sacha said with curiosity. “No one had their hands on it.”
“What could J.W. stand for?” I asked. “Any thoughts?”“You know I saw this show once on TV about someone with the initials J.W., but I don’t remember exactly what it was about,” Sacha responded. “Just that it was a bunch of bull.”
“Well, that didn’t help much,” Sarah said sarcastically. “J.W. could stand for anything. There are countless possibilities!”
“Sacha, ask it another question,” I said.
Sacha rolled her eyes and thought of something to ask it.
“Lauren, put your hands back on the dial,” Sacha demanded.
“No, I don’t want to play with this stupid game anymore,” she said defensively.
“I’ll do it,” I said, placing my hands on the right side of the dial.
“What kind of job do … did you have?” Sacha asked.
The dial immediately started moving and went over the letters M-U-R-D-E-R-E-R.
“All right, that’s enough; let’s put this stupid game board away!” Lauren said.
“Come on,” I said. “We all know that just because the board says ‘murderer’ doesn’t mean that this is real. Let’s just see what happens.”
