Did you hear Julie Flanders has a new book coming out this December? I loved Polar Night, so am very excited.
Ghosts of Aquinnah
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.
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.

Nick Wilford’s Editing Services
With the unstoppable rise of self-publishing, it’s easier than ever to put your words and stories out there in the world. This is a great thing, and I’m all for it. However, it’s not just about the story – although of course, that is the most important part – but the way it’s presented. After spending months or years on a novel, building an incredible world and honing your characters and storylines to perfection, the last thing you want is to be let down by a lack of editing. It’s just as important as an arresting cover image.

Closed Until Next Summer
Last Friday was my last night at the observatory for the season. The final three weeks were a bust for star gazing. It’s always bitter sweet. I’m happy to get my Fridays back, but will miss the evenings chatting with my astronomy friends, navigating the skies, and teaching people about something I never tire of looking at.
There’s still time to sign up for the Realms Faire. The event was created to help promote you and your books. The prizes are amazing. It’s going to be like Christmas the week of November 11th. Two slots are left in the joust. Ghost Knight is returning to defend her title. Artists are needed for Misha’s event. It’s going to be a fun time. Which reminds me that Grogz is open for business on FB.
Another mega post. What a busy fall it is, which is wonderful. I’m so excited for everyone. Have a great weekend!
