I played with the supernatural for my Gothic tale, The Blackthorne Curse, and now for my very first ghost story . . .
A Regency ghost story inspired by the classic saying:
"Marry in haste, repent at leisure."
The widowed Lady Marian Talbot is keeping a low profile as her exquisitely lovely sister, Vanessa, makes her come-out. Yet somehow it is Marian who attracts the attention of the most eligible bachelor London society has seen in a decade, a marquess who has spent the last dozen years in India. After a whirlwind courtship, Marian—now the Marchioness of Rushton—arrives at her new home, only to discover she is expected to solve the challenges of dealing with her husband's hostile brother and sister, his illegitimate young son, and a staff at war with itself. And, as if that weren't enough, Marian must also adjust to a panoply of ghosts, all supposedly benign, but that becomes doubtful as someone—or some thing—makes repeated attempts to kill both the marquess and his new bride.
The Ghosts of Rushton Court is currently available on Amazon and Smashwords. (And on several other online vendors within the coming week.) Background information on the writing of Ghosts can be found on my Facebook Author Page.

The contest for the two bargello evening purses will be coming soon, but I want to allow enough time for Smashwords to make Ghosts available to its affiliated vendors, such as B&N's Nook, Kobo, etc.
