Winter 1917. As the First World War enters its most brutal phase, back home in England, everyone is seeking answers to the darkness that has seeped into their lives.

But as his guests begin to arrive, it gradually becomes clear that each has something they would rather keep hidden. Then, when a storm descends on the island, the guests will find themselves trapped. Soon one of their number will die.

Thank you so much for having me here today, Cathy! I’m so excited to be sharing the release of The Emissary 2: To Love Somebody with you and your followers.

Forced to leave the California beach behind to spend the summer with her grandma in rural Tennessee, Dannie is certain this will be the most boring summer of her life. Things start looking up when a group of local kids, mistaking her short hair and boyish figure, invite her on their ‘no girls allowed’ overnight kayaking trip. Obviously, her grandma refuses to let her go. But Dannie suspects the real reason is that the woman is afraid of the lake, only she won’t tell Dannie why.

The last place Dannie wants to spend a good portion of her summer holiday is in rural Tennessee with her grandmother, while her parents spend two weeks in Paris.

#Spotlight & #Excerpt ~ The Mischief Maker by Simon Maree #Poltergeist

He’s just a soul whose intentions are good… Oh Lord, please don’t let him be misunderstood…

Joe has a problem. He is falling in love with his new housemate. Nothing unusual there, except for Joe is a poltergeist and this sort of thing just shouldn’t happen. Joe is suffering an existential crisis of no small proportion.

The object of his misguided affections – a feisty and self-assured teenager named Harriet. Will he be able to save her from something much darker than himself that lurks in the shadows of the Brighton house they share? Will she be able to help him on his newfound quest for redemption?

I’d been waiting for someone like her for a great while. I had no idea how long. I’d all lost track of time. It could have been years, decades or even centuries. If I was given to clichés, I could say that it felt like an eternity, but nobody knows what that’s like (although I’m learning, slowly; one day at a time).

The Ghost In You: A First-Hand Account from Beyond the Grave by Katrina Mountfort #SupernaturalFiction @curlykats #YA

Author: Katrina Mountfort

Published: February 2018 by Elsewhen Press

Category: Supernatural, Romance, Fiction, Book Review

What do you do if you’re dead but haven’t ‘moved on’? 

You keep finding yourself back where you died, with very little control over when; sometimes you can be away for days, weeks or even months, and then you’re back. Between times, when you’re ‘away’, where do you go, what do you do? You’ve seen some other ghosts asleep at their graves, but you don’t even know where your own grave is.

After an accident which left her with terrible facial scars, nineteen year old Rowena spends most of her spare time helping others. Two of her favourite people are her landlady, Marjorie, and her best friend, Kirsty, who is waiting for a bone marrow transplant.
