Day four of The Ghost blog tour and Homecoming cover reveal

It's day four of the tour, and I have three fantastic writers hosting me today.

I'm sending one of my ghosts, Jeremy Emerson, to Carolyn Brown's blog to chat with you.
I told him to watch his mouth and behave himself. That guy rarely listens to me, though!

It's the final post in my villains series. Find out what horrifying thing goes bump in the night in THE GHOST over at Nick Wilford's blog.

Join me for another great excerpt at Graeme Ing's blog.
It includes my comments on my own writing.

Today's tidbit: I don't like to have any of my key characters unnamed in my books, but the monster in THE GHOST has no name. You can't see or hear it, but if you feel it, I fear for your soul. I didn't plan on having the monster evolve this way, but it's creepy and works very well with a story that features ghosts.

Now on to Cecilia Robert's beautifully stunning cover reveal!

Five years ago, twenty-three-year-old panther shifter Sera Czedar left her home and her newly mated groom in a humiliating position after a mating ceremony gone wrong. She built a new life for herself in Varselles, the City of Outcasts where shifters exiled from their clans in the Seven Kingdoms can go for sanctuary.

Five years ago, panther shifter Levian Grayson was abandoned on the bonding bed by his bride, Sera. After years of tracking her, he arrives in Varselles, intent on staking his claim on her once and for all, even if it means hauling  his slippery woman over his shoulder just to make sure that happens. 

Sera has always known her homecoming would eventually catch up with her one day. The one thing she can’t bear to do is hurt Levian, which will happen as soon as he finds out the reason she left him. Is she ready to take that path? Most of all, will Levian still want her when the truth comes out?

  3. Cool cover.
    Unnamed and unknown is very creepy.

  4. Great cover!

    I think the fact that the monster is unnamed makes him even scarier.

  5. Good luck for another great tour, Christine!

    Congrats to Cecilia. Sounds like one narrative told from two POVs, very cool.

  7. Congratulations, Christine. Love the creepy Monster idea.

  8. Your monster sounds totally creepy! I'll go check out the other blogs on your tour.

  9. Thank you for posting the cover reveal, Christine! :) The Ghost sounds intriguing.I really like how you worked The 13th Floor series, each with its set of Villains. Hope to catch up with this stories soon:)

    Thank you to everyone for commenting, and for the kind words. :)

    Oooh I am really looking forward to Friday, Christine!

  10. I have got to get caught up on this 13th Floor series. I read 'The Marquis' and truly enjoyed it. The Ghost sounds intriguing, but I want to get to the others first. Unfortunately, life kinda got in my way the past few months, but hopefully I'm back.

  11. Thank you, everyone! I've had a really long day with a bunch of munchkins, and I'm happy to come home to all your wonderful comments. :)

  12. Wow, that cover is gorgeous! Also, I really loved how the monster in The Ghost was nameless. Made it more sinister!
