The Story Behind A Ghostly Charm, Releasing Today

A Ghostly Charm, releasing today from The Wild Rose Press, started as a dream. I was REALLY into Supernatural at the time, and I dreamed that Dean was running a ghost tour for Halloween, to help support he and Sam’s demon-fighting job. I started writing it, may even have finished it that way, but it didn’t really work for me. I know I completed it, but let it sit. It wasn’t ready. Then another writer friend came up with the idea of having connected stories, based on a cursed object from an antique shop, and I pulled this up and started again. This time I thought–what if he led the ghost trips and DIDN’T believe in ghosts? That made writing the story a lot more fun, as was cutting the word count to pick up the pace of the story.

Here’s the blurb:

An isolated island off the coast of South Carolina, a cursed Celtic symbol, a ghost tour led by a handsome charlatan, and a reporter determined to debunk anything supernatural come together in A Ghostly Charm.

Maddy Saunders has come to McDavid Island on assignment for a new magazine, wondering how she’ll ever rebuild her ruined reputation by writing about ghosts.

Mal Sheridan leads a ghost tour to bring business to the island for his sister’s New Age shop. Business is good as long as no one is looking too closely. When his creative stories start to come true, he has to figure out why there are ghosts where there weren’t before.

Maddy decides to help Mal figure out why this is happening, while fighting her attraction for this inappropriate man. She has to put her faith in Mal, in something she never thought she could believe, to break a curse.
