GHOSTWRITER Birthday Celebration #Giveaway and Excerpt, Day 24

All this month, I'll be celebrating the second birthday of my novel, Ghostwriter, with excerpts and prizes.

This year is also the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I. My hero, Seth, was a witness to the terrible events of that war as an ambulance driver. Sara discovers his letters home in a trunk hidden in the attic of the island house she's renting.

Along with the excerpts, I'll be sharing some photographs that inspired me as I was writing the novel.

Today's excerpt:

“Seth, things have changed a lot in the last century.”

“I gathered that,” he murmured.

“You did nothing wrong. We . . . did nothing wrong.”

“I’m trying . . . I’m trying to court you as you deserve. Your era seems to lack some of the respect and romance we had in my day. I want to give that to you, Sara. I want to give you the things you’ve missed.”

Her heart sank. He pitied her.

Seth was perceptive enough to read her subtle change in demeanor. “What did I say wrong?”

“You’re not doing this because you feel sorry for me, are you?”

“Why would you think that?”

“Don’t make me fall in love with you, Seth, if you don’t mean it.”

“I am many things, but insincere is not one of them.” He stood and walked down to the edge of the pond.

About the book:

Newly single, unemployed, and with her savings dwindling to an all-time low, Sara thinks things are finally looking up when she lands a job ghostwriting a popular politician’s biography, and rents the affordable island home of her favorite author, Seth Fortner, who mysteriously disappeared in 1925. Strange things begin to happen as objects break, go missing, and terrifying visions appear, making Sara wonder if Seth ever left, or if she is slowly losing her mind.

She gets no answers from his family who closely guards the secret of his disappearance. Through an old trunk of letters Sara discovers in the attic of her seaside cottage, Sara unravels the mystery and becomes caught up in a tale of greed, lost love, and the horrors of WWI. Will she be the one to break the “Fortner Curse” by helping Seth conquer his demons, and heal both of their hearts in the process?
