October is GHOSTWRITER'S Birthday! #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:

“Seth?” She walked down to stand beside him. 

“I don’t want to talk about it anymore.”

Sara nodded. “Okay. We don’t have to if you don’t want to.”

He turned to her, bewildered. “Why are you so kind to me?”

“Why wouldn’t I be?”

“You know what I am, what I did. Most of it anyway. “

“That doesn’t change how I feel about you.”

“What?” He blinked at her as though she spoke a foreign language.

“Seth, did you ever realize how you spoke through your stories? You gave the world some of its most beautiful tales of love and redemption, of hope and courage. I knew when I read them you were someone special, because you wrote from the heart, Seth. All of it came from inside you.” She laid her hand on his chest over his heart. “From in here.”

He backed away. “You need to wake up now.”

“Not yet.” This seemed important to her, important he know she understood and didn’t judge.

“Go!” he snapped. “Wake up and leave me alone!” With that, he turned and strode down the beach, fading into the darkness.

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?
