Shiver and Fear is a chapter book series for young readers about different age kids who get pulled or pushed into unnatural situation. Within the stories of each book the main character suffers with worry and fear and end up in what the reader think is an unbelievable twist.
Shiver and Fears was created July in 2012 by Asia Hardwick, who is known by his fans as AJ Hard. Shiver and Fears are online books and come in paperback, kindle, and audio. Most of these copies are found on Amazon.com, but can be found on other websites such as Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, and E-bay.
AJ Hard started Shiver and Fears after reading R.L. Stine's Goosebumps series. After years of reading AJ found inspiration to write stories himself. His first published book, The Unlucky Charm, was written after AJ heard the phrase, "Lucky rabbit's foot? Wasn't lucky for the rabbit!" However Shiver and Fears started with The Haunted Cell Phone. A story about a boy finding a phone in his backyard, but after activating it he gets creepy phone calls and messages from no one. After writing the books AJ Hard started working on promoting Shiver and Fears on social networks and even a store at zazzle.com" I created Shiver and Fears to get young readers to learn how mistakes aren't something to be ashamed of, but something to be proud to show," says AJ. Without an editor Hard was writing with errors in his stories, but proudly fans in the process. Hard soon came up with the ideas of having contests involving character and idea add-ons. "I added a boy in The Ghost of Future Me as he won the main character contest. He was to become the main character's little genius brother. He loved it!"
