Big news for cover photos on Facebook. As you may know, Facebook has very strict guidelines when it comes to what you can say, what you can do, and how you “advertise” on your Facebook Page. Of course, the reason was, Facebook wants you to advertise through Facebook ads!
However, very quietly, Facebook has dropped some of its restrictions; most importantly, it doesn’t disallow Call-to-Actions.

This is Spencer. He looks like a common tortoise. In a sense he is that, but he is also something more.
Spencer is not from here. His shell contains an element not known to the science of our world.
It is temporium, a highly radioactive substance so powerful, that it disrupts the space-time continuum.
Time accelerates in close proximity to Spencer. That is why Tommy LeBeck’s parents didn’t recognize the old man who came to their door, asking if he could keep the turtle. Tommy was only six years old when he went out to play a few hours ago.

Geddy’s Moon by John Mulhall
Genre: Horror (Supernatural Thriller)
Word count: 121,095
Tyler is an amnesiac, drifting aimlessly across the country, struggling to regain his lost memories. When he arrives in Geddy’s Moon, a sleepy town in the middle of the Kansas wheat fields, fragments of his past begin to resurface. But as he establishes new relationships in town, and spends time with the local librarian and her son, he finds himself tormented by nightmares that grow more unsettling each night. What horrific events took place before Tyler arrived in Geddy’s Moon? And could he have brought a terrifying – and possibly supernatural – danger along with him? As the pieces of his fractured memory begin to fall into place, he fears that it may already be too late to keep himself, and those he’s begun to care about, safe from a vicious evil.
