Teaser – book #2

So, the second book I’m working on is actually book #3 in the Ghost Releasers, Inc. series. It is called Ghostly Perceptions. The main characters are Rafe Elliott, a widower with a small son, Joey, being tormented by the ghosts of his murdered friends. Donna Collins is the main character in this story. She appears earlier in Ghostly Intentions and Ghostly Deceptions as a member of the Ghost Releasers, Inc. team. Her specialty is cameras to film the otherworldly and paranormal.

Chapter 1

Rafe Elliott didn’t believe in ghosts. It didn’t matter how much Joey cried in his room or how much it made his heart break to hear his son sobbing in his room. His hands clenched into fists on his thighs. He pressed to keep his feet firmly on the floor beside his bed. He wasn’t going into that room again tonight. The first time he’d done the open the closet, look under the bed routine. The next three times he’d opened the door and reassured his child the boogyman was not going to get him. The last time he’d yelled from his own bedroom that it was bedtime and he wasn’t going in there again.

His resolve lasted all of five seconds before the boy’s blood-curdling scream rebounded across the house and Rafe leapt off the bed and rushed out the doorway.

The sprint down the hallway seemed to take a lifetime as Joey’s screams ratcheted up another octave. Dogs howls echoed from the neighbor’s yards. Thumping came from his son’s room as if the bed were being moved across the floor.

He grasped the doorknob and hissed in pain at the intense cold of the metal froze his hand to the surface. With a scream of his own, Rafe ripped his hand from the knob, leaving a layer of skin behind.

Turning, he dove against the door with his shoulder. A crack sounded, but the door remained shut. Two more slams of his body and the door ripped open, bouncing off the wall as he stumbled into his son’s room.

Small for his age, Joey was a tiny figure in his bed as the covers whipped away from him and flew to the other side of the room. His hands held onto the headboard as if he would be flung across the room next. His son spotted him in the doorway, as his large blue eyes begged for help.

“Help me.”

The small whisper hit him like a sonic boom, piercing his heart. He was supposed to protect his son from everything, but how did you protect someone from what you couldn’t see or couldn’t understand. Like dealing with Elise’s cancer, he was out of his depth and clueless.

Ghostly Perceptions will be book #3 in the Ghost Releasers, Inc. series.

Work In Progress

Finally back to writing after the holidays. I’m working on books 2 and 3 of the Ghost Releasers, Inc. series. Book 1 is Ghostly Intentions. Book 2 will be Ghostly Deceptions. Book 3 will be Ghostly Perceptions. Book 2 has Andrea, Megan’s sister from book 1 and Luke, Jack’s business partner from book 1. Book 3 has Donna, who works with Jack and Luke and a new guy, Rafe and his son Joey.

 

Book 2 is Andrea and Luke’s story. Ghostly Deceptions is a ghost possession story. After her sister’s torment with a ghostly entity, Andrea is more unwilling than before to believe in ghosts and such until she starts having hours and days of time she can’t remember. Times when someone or something else is in charge of her body and her mind. Unwilling to turn to her sister and the head of Ghost Releasers, Inc. she is on her own until Luke realizes something isn’t right with Andrea.

Book 3 is Donna and Rafe’s story. Ghostly Perceptions is about a little boy, a poltergeist, and a father unwilling to accept his son’s stories of ghostly happenings. When he is confronted with the unimaginable he will turn to his neighbor Donna who works with the team at Ghost Releasers, Inc.

Working on getting both books out before the middle of the year. Fingers crossed for maybe April and May. We shall see.

Autumn is Coming

At least here in Reno, Nevada it is. Looks like in the 80s most of this week and in the 40s first thing in the morning. The trees are starting to turn orange and red. The sky is a vivbrant blue and wispy clouds scutter across the vista.

I love summer but it is awesome to live somewhere with 4 actual seasons. Loving it.

I’ll be putting out my September newsletter as soon as I have my newest book cover, so if you want to be among the first to see it, subscribe to my newsletter. http://eepurl.com/hvtn-/

Nanowrimo – Day 7

A little tidbit from the current WIP, or otherwise known as Nanowrimo project.

Andrea Martin-Stovall didn’t feel like herself this morning. Hadn’t felt like herself for weeks. An unknown voice rattled around in her head. Something hummed through her veins and crawled over her skin. Her body felt crowded and not her own.

She stared at herself in the bathroom mirror and wondered when she had become a frumpy old hag. Her hair was long and heavy. With a smile, she picked up the scissors and started cutting her hair.
