October is GHOSTWRITER Month! #Giveaway and #Excerpt

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:

“What have I done to make you think any of this was feigned?” he asked. “Do I seem to be a duplicitous man to you?”

“No. I’m sorry. It’s not you . . . I think I have trust issues. You seem too good to be true, and I’ve never been this lucky. No one like you has ever looked twice in my direction. I feel like I’ve won the grand prize in a contest I didn’t know I had entered, and I’m still afraid someone will say it was a mistake and take it away from me. And the horror of it is, I’ll be worse off than I was before, because without it, the world will seem stark and cold in a way I never noticed before.”

“Oh, Sara. You poor, sweet girl.” He turned to her and drew her against his chest.

She laid her head over his heart and the stillness beneath her ear seemed significant. Because none of this was real. She had to remember this. None of it was real. Even if he was sincere—and a small, wounded corner of her heart still doubted—it was a fantasy, a web of dreams. The only thing she wasn’t sure of anymore was whether it was her fantasy or his.

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?
