Just a reminder–there are SEVERAL freebie ghost stories at the bottom of the blog store–there are stories by myself, Karen Cantwell and if I recall correctly, the Christmas one by Misha Crews has a ghost in it! Margaret Lake’s story has a witch in it. All of the freebies in the blog store are good!
In addition, very soon, the only place you can download Under Witch Ghost will be from the blog store. It’s a free read and you can send it directly to your Kindle. I originally wrote it as 3.5 in the Moon Shadow series. It was a short story that served to introduce the characters a bit and I gave it away free. But these things take on a life of their own. Under Witch Ghost has morphed into something new. It will soon be the prologue in the upcoming novel, Ghost Shadow. Ghost Shadow will be out in December. Stay tuned to participate in a cover poll!
As a side note, Executive Affairs, a Sedona O’Hala humorous mystery short will also be going away from retailers. At present it is only available from Kobobooks. Soon it will only be available for free from the blog store.
If you are looking for some good Ghost stories, I recommend:
Saving Gracie by Nancy DeMarco. A WONDERFUL story that MIGHT have a ghost in it–but it’s a mystery. Is it really a ghost? Or just someone who thinks she sees ghosts? Loved this book.
The Hounds of Ardagh by Laura Underwood (at Kobobooks–same low price as Amazon, coupons may work.) (B&N)
The Hounds of Ardagh by Laura Underwood has a great ghost (plays the part of a mentor) in it. This is a fantasy novel with a side of mystery. Really good stuff.
I also thoroughly enjoyed a set of interesting ghost stories by David Bain: The Castleton Files. This is a little like my book, Tracking Magic, a set of investigations all involving the same investigator. The Castleton files are darker and spookier than my stories; I wouldn’t say these were cozy. But they aren’t overly violent either. In some cases, I thought the author was close to capturing the atmosphere of a Frank Tuttle’s ghost story (such as Dead Man’s Rain). These are good, solid stories although you might not want to read them in an empty house on a cold, dark night…
And, of course, Frank Tuttle’s Cadaver Client has ghosts!
