The Ghosts of Aquinnah Cover Reveal & Creepy Freebies

Can you believe tomorrow is October 1st? My favourite month of the year is nearly upon us. To start the build up to Halloween, I have a ghostly cover reveal from Julie Flanders and news of a month full of Creepy Freebies.

Let's start with the cover reveal.

The Blurb

A brilliant flash of light transcends through time.

Another freezes a cloaked figure within a frame of salty mist as waves crash against a rocky shore. Her harrowing expression shadows the beacon to a pinprick.

By the next blaze, she is gone. Only the lighthouse remains.

Hannah’s eyes blink in step with each heartbeat. Images of her deceased parents and Martha’s Vineyard explode like firecrackers inside her mind.

She shakes her head.

For weeks this eerie woman dressed in nineteenth century garb has been haunting my webcam, but tonight she stared into my soul.

Why? ...

Who is she? ...

Casting aside months of research on historic lighthouses, Hannah drives to the coast and boards a ferry.

What is the strange connection she has to this mysterious woman suspended in time?

Hannah finds out.

But, it’s not at all what she expects ...

Hannah unravels a century old murder.

Congratulations, Julie. Sounds like my kind of read. 

Now for Creepy Freebies.

During October, Milo James Fowler has teamed up with some talented writers to bring you a month of free stories. 

Creepy Freebies starts this Friday, October 4th. Please help to spread the word.
