First line of the book.

The night waited. She could hear the flakes of snow as they pillowed on the ground, heard the hoot of an owl, hidden in the brush of the pines.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Elise Brooks dreams of a car accident on an icy road. Weeks later, her beloved husband, Michael, is killed in just such a crash. Now, overcome with grief and uncertainty, Elise believes his spirit may be following her in the form of a raven, trying to tell her something from beyond the grave.

Desperate to understand the signs, Elise embraces both the Native American wisdom she grew up with and the world of psychics and seers. So when a tarot-card reader suggests she take a journey to the mysterious address found in Michael’s old jacket, she embarks on a cross-country trek to follow the clues.

Accompanied by Tom Dugan, an engineer and scientist who does not believe in psychics, mediums, or the hoodoo “conjure woman” they encounter on the road, Elise navigates the rituals and omens of the spirit world in an attempt to unravel the mystery of her husband’s message.

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Elise ~ confused, sad and on a mission.

Delightful design (add the cover of the book.)

Your favourite line/scene.

Then the car dipped and curved slowly to the canyon below. Clouds moved to block her view, but Elise could hear the sound of the vehicle crashing against rocks and trees, metal screeching and crunching in the freezing night. She heard the branches of trees snapping and breaking, the pounding of rock and earth disturbed by the heavy impact. The car settled somewhere near the river, snaking it’s way through the trees at the bottom of the canyon. She heard the sound of the engine, ticking like a heartbeat. She heard the hiss of steam from the smashed radiator. The river murmured, its song soft and muffled by snow and ice. She heard the flap of a bird’s wings, swooping up out of the canyon, and watched as the black bird flew off into the night.
