I’m working hard on Nanoing, way behind, but still working! That’s what happens when you schedule a girl’s weekend in November: lots of fun, but not so many words. I’ll be writing about it soon, so stay tuned!

Today is just a brief reminder that I’m guesting today on Cynthia Woolf’s blog. If you haven’t had a chance to read my contemporary Gothic romance, GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS PAST, hop on by and leave a comment to enter to win an e-copy.

Have a fantastic weekend and stay warm, it’s super cold here in Colorado!

Ghosts of Christmas Past 

Jen MacNamara flees the Christmas wedding of her best friend and cheating fiancé and runs to the country to spend the holiday alone. It’s the perfect plan, until her unexpectedly sexy neighbor and landlord, Nate Pierce, insists on bringing the holiday to her—complete with a Christmas tree, hot chocolate, and an unexpected kiss. 

And that’s not Jen’s only problem. 

The cozy country farmhouse is already occupied by something evil. Now Jen’s nights are spent wrapped in sensual dreams of a past life, and her days growing closer to Nate as they solve the mystery of the malevolent ghost that haunts not only the house, but also wants Jen dead. 

Dare to discover Jessica Aspen’s sexy, new adult, contemporary, Gothic romance, today.

Looking for Haunted Reads?

Fantastic Fridays

a paranormal blog

It’s Friday! And it’s time to explore the world of ghosts. My latest foray in to the paranormal is a romantic ghost story, Ghosts of Christmas Past, and while I may have trouble deciding if it’s a modern Gothic, a romantic suspense with paranormal elements, or a New Adult paranormal romance, I do know one thing about it (besides the fact that it’s a romance): it has ghosts.

Writing ghost romance means I’m anticipating Halloween and today I decided to take a journey into the land of true ghost stories. I grew up reading tales of terror, provided through the Arrow and Scholastic book clubs. You can read that post HERE, but now I’ve discovered that it’s all on the internet. So here are a list of a few blogs you can hop to and discover ghosts, ghouls, and the truly creepy.

halloween toombstonesThe first blog I’m going to send you to is Paranormal Stories  and I particularly was intrigued by the title of one of their blogs Corpse Roads.  Gives me the shivers just reading it. Reminds me of when Mary and I drove down to RWA this summer. We drove through the vast open prairies of Colorado, Oklahoma, and Texas. And there was one town that was stuffed full of graves. Tiny little town and multiple cemetaries. We figured people had driven for miles through rural Texas to be buried there. All those corpses rolling over the three roads that came into town. Now that place must have some ghost stories.

Since my story is a modern Gothic, I set it in a haunted house in the US. So if you are looking for more stories of haunts in the United States, then check out American Ghost Story. Tales of the supernatural from all over the states. What I find interesting about this blog is that it’s full of short, almost Flash Fiction personal tales of ghosts from all over. If you want quick creepy stories, this is the link for you. I loved the typo in the story about a haunted youth “hostile” in Berlin. It definitely was hostile.

And I haven’t been brave enough to listen, but if you love the sound of Neil Gaiman’s voice, like I do, merely the idea of him reading ghost stories sends shivers up my spine. Check out the TED Blog and let me know if it’s as spine chilling as I think it will be. Even the title of the story is creepy, Click-Clack the Rattlebag. Brrrr!

 What’s Happening: I have guests every Wednesday on the blog, this week author Sandra S. Kerns, shared her research into diving for Her Master Diver. And next Whimsical Wedesday you will meet author Tameri Etherton.

Check out the quickie glimpses into Ghosts of Christmas Past, this month with Sneak Peek Sundays. Every Sunday I’ll be giving you six paragraphs from the book. 

Next Friday I’ll go over my Fantastic Halloween! October is going to be chock full of events where you can win everything from print books to Amazon Gift Cards, so check back!
