Finally it’s live! Prequel to the Psychic Surveys series – Eve: A Christmas Ghost Story is now available on Amazon – a month exactly before the biggest Eve of them all. More paranormal than horror, it’s a novella rather than a horror – something that was a challenge to write as it forced me to be more focussed – there’s no room for waffle in a novella! Featuring two members of the Psychic Surveys team – Theo Lawson and Vanessa Patterson (Ness) – long before they’ve met Ruby and co, it also gave me a chance to explore their characters more fully.
Eve is based on a true event – one that took place in Calumet, Michigan, USA in 1913. I’ve heavily fictionalised it (of course!) but it’s fair to say that all my paranormal books are based on events that have actually happened, some to me personally. It was my dear American friend, Lindy Stem, who first mooted the idea to me during a discussion we were having and she even came up with the title – I hope I’ve done her proud with my rendition.
Here’s the blurb and a few teasers, the buy links are at the end of the page if you fancy a read. I’ve also got a Facebook launch party going on as I type with prizes to be won, so pop in if you can. I’ll post the link to the party at the end of the post too.
Massive thanks to all my readers, for your continued and generous support and also thanks to my publishers too, Laurence and Steph at Crooked Cat Publishing. A massive thanks too to Jeff Gardiner, my editor, who works so hard on the books and also to Tracy Smith Comerford for the wonderful teasers she makes up for me. It’s a real team effort!
Eve – A Christmas Ghost Story
What do you do when a whole town is haunted?
In 1899, in the North Yorkshire market town of Thorpe Morton, a tragedy occurred; 59 people died at the market hall whilst celebrating Christmas Eve, many of them children. One hundred years on and the spirits of the deceased are restless still, ‘haunting’ the community, refusing to let them forget.
In 1999, psychic investigators Theo Lawson and Ness Patterson are called in to help, sensing immediately on arrival how weighed down the town is. Quickly they discover there’s no safe haven. The past taints everything.
Hurtling towards the anniversary as well as a new millennium, their aim is to move the spirits on, to cleanse the atmosphere so everyone – the living and the dead – can start again. But the spirits prove resistant and soon Theo and Ness are caught up in battle, fighting against something that knows their deepest fears and can twist them in the most dangerous of ways.
They’ll need all their courage to succeed and the help of a little girl too – a spirit who didn’t die at the hall, who shouldn’t even be there…
