This is a first for me on A Little more Fiction, the showcasing of someone’s book.
I have posted some great guest stories, ones written by great authors friends of mine and I have, on very rare occasions done a little ‘pomo-ing’ of my own works, but I have never posted a full-on promotion for another writer on this blog.
But I have known Suzi from way back when ‘Scorn Kills’ sported a flaming look, quite different from today’s slick cover.
So, I said I would share Suzi’s new book, A Love Haunting, with you all. Below is a short excerpt from the book and a ‘link’ so you can go get yourself a copy today.
This short chapter in A Love Haunting begins Jordan’s existence as a Living Dead (LD).
It appears a quarter of the way into the novel and takes place after Jordan feels he has lost his one true love, just before he meets Luke, a skateboarding angel and the trio of ghosts from the 1800s who become his friend.
Love… death… forever. That’s the story of my life apparently.
So Emily had left the Banks. In my mind, I knew she had to go, but now I am lonelier than I’ve ever been in my life. Right after the accident, my world was devastated because of my loss of Emily, our baby and… my life.
And then when Emily was in the hospital, I found a way to be near to her again, if only in a small way. Now she is gone and my life is really over. Now I have no one.
Sure I could have hung around Allie, bugging her but it would not have been fair to her. Besides, she was on her way to being a nurse practitioner, and I knew she’d be a damn good one. So while Allie was in school, I was going to leave her be, but I did plan on helping her when she embarked on her new career. Besides, I wanted to convince Allie to shoot bigger and become a doctor. Being a physician was her real calling, she just didn’t know it yet.
In the meantime, I made up my mind I was going to make the best of my new dead life, and that would require some hands-on research. Research had always been one of my strong suits. That and evaluation.
And there was something else I wanted to research but didn’t dare until I figured out all the rules and restrictions of my dead existence. I didn’t want to lose my wife, so I was going to try to… do something.
So since I had loads of free time on my hands, I would start by exploring to see what was what.
What am I supposed to do about my feelings now that I’m dead? My life can’t end like this. It just can’t.
Wow, I hadn’t allowed myself to admit that I was actually dead until now. Dead and buried and the whole nine yards.
Well, it’s true. I died a few feet off a highway in North Carolina, not far from my favorite vacation paradise – the Outer Banks.
I am a ghost, and this is my love story.
