Now available: Ghosts of Christmas Past!

Ghosts of Christmas Past

Katy Lindstrom knows December is the best time for ghost hunting–all you really need is some excellent Kona blend and a little patience. But this year brings a ghost of Christmas past she might not be able to catch.

All Katy wants is to enjoy the uptick in business and forget that this is the first Christmas without her grandmother. But when one of Springside’s notorious citizens returns–as a ghost–and leaves a dear friend in a coma, Katy will try anything to get Christmas back on track.

A disastrous ghost eradication leaves her partner Malcolm scalded and both of them out of options. Katy must sort through her feelings for him while fending off the interest of a shady cabal of necromancers.

And if she can’t catch that elusive ghost of Christmas past? It may end up ruining everyone’s future.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with coffee and ghosts

So, lots of coffee and ghosts this week. Final, final tweaks to get it ready to launch yesterday. If you like all your ghost (and coffee) stories in one place, this is the format for you.

Did some revision work this week and some brainstorming on a possible season two for Coffee & Ghosts and … I think I may have a season two. I’m thinking three stories this time, novella length (or so I hope). We will see.

And we did it. All four of my Girl Scouts are first aid qualified–and so am I (again). Minus a few bruises on my wrist from practicing chest compressions, all went well.

Writing Work:

  • Revision work
  • Coffee & Ghosts season two brainstorming and outlining

Submissions:

  • Gretel and Hansel
  • Knight in the Royal Arms

Rejections:

  • Gretel and Hansel
  • Knight in the Royal Arms

Acceptances:

  • None

Publications:

Coffee & GhostsYou can read more about that in my post here. But it’s available in one volume, or read each episode for free if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription. It’s even in print.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with a finished novelette

So, I finished my coffee/ghost story this week. It has words! And an ending! And a title! Giving up the Ghosts came in at 8,948 words. I also think this is the first time I’ve written an honest-to-goodness sequel for something. I think it worked. At least, I hope it did. I’ll know in a few weeks when I read over the draft.

I also worked a bit on some flash fiction. And if you take a gander below, you’ll see a link to a post I did up yesterday on five books about WWI.

Writing Work:

Submissions:

  • Knight in the Royal Arms
  • Five to Freedom

Rejections:

  • None

Acceptances:

  • None

Publications:

Just a matter of timeYes, on Kindle only. For short stories, this seems to be my best option. As tempting as the 58 cent payouts from Kobo are … okay, they’re not tempting at all. I’m better off, for the time being, placing my short work in KDP Select and the Kindle Unlimited program.

For now. It might not always be that way. And I’m not locked into anything. At least, I’m only locked in for 90 days. 90 days? In publishing? That’s a blink of an eye.

So … it’s available for 99 cents, or you can borrow it for free if you are an Amazon Prime and/or Kindle Unlimited member.
