The Ghosts of Aquinnah

Hey, gang! So thrilled to share news and a cover of another awesome upcoming release today! I'm actually doubly excited, because not only does this book come from my good blogging-writing friend, Julie Flanders, but the cover and blurb were done by one of my other dear blogging-multitalented friends, Michael Di Gesu.

Want to congratulate them both on doing a bang up job, and say I'm really looking forward to adding Ghosts to my library this December.

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.

Julie Flanders is a novelist and freelance writer in Cincinnati, Ohio. She has a life-long love affair with the ocean and has spent more summer vacations than she can count on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. When not writing, Julie can be found reading, cheering on her favorite sports teams, and watching too much television. She is an animal lover and shares her home with her dog and cat.

The Ghosts of Aquinnah will be released by Ink Smith Publishing on December 5, 2013
