Whispers at Ghost Point.

Deanna Jewel    Multi-genre Romance Author

Katie, thank you for having me this week! I’m so excited to chat with your readers. We’re going to spend this week along the Cape Fear River in Wilmington on the deck of the Pilot House in the shade of a few umbrellas. Let’s gather around, get our drinks ordered and then we can discuss the beauty of the boardwalk.

Readers, I’m so happy that you’ve popped in to check out my new book, Whispers at Ghost Point. Those who love lighthouses and hauntings will love the book. Do you enjoy learning about restored lighthouses and those that are bed and breakfasts? Then get comfortable and let’s chat a bit. I’ve just returned from visiting St. Augustine’s lighthouse and I made it all the way to the top to stand on the lookout deck…yes, I made it all the way up 219 steps and also did their Dark of the Moon ghost tour which also got us inside the keeper’s house!

My main character is Dana Kaster. She loves old lighthouses and is determined to remodel one that seems to be off limits to her but she never gives up hope of accomplishing her goals! Let’s imagine for a moment how Dana must have felt the very first time she gets to enter the keeper’s house. I think it may have looked a lot like the photo below. She probably looked over her shoulder a lot, too. Do some of you like ghost stories? Who enjoys exploring those old lighthouses?

My two main characters have lived and loved in another life…are there a few of you who believe that is possible? I hope so because too much in their lives is the same. I’ve reincarnated the characters from No Turning Back so you may want to read that book first. It’s currently on sale for .99 for those who’ve not read it yet. Please know that I’m working very hard on the edits to get things done so I can get this book out to you in a few weeks. Click HERE to read more and to watch the book trailer. There’s also a link to read Ch 1. In the mean time, I’ve got a contest or two going on for you to get into.

Author Biography &Links

Deanna Jewel lives in the Pacific Northwest and has been writing since 1991. She is married to a retired captain of the fire department. He’s also owned his own businesses for 23 years. They have two Siamese cats: Zoie and Sinbad, who keep them entertained. Deanna has enjoyed reading historical romance novels for over thirty years, camping with her family, and traveling.
Her writing goal is to draw the reader into the story to experience what the characters feel, to show both the hero's and heroine's points of view, and to take the reader away from their every day stress to a place not yet visited.
She has completed one time travel and one historical novel and has several others in the works. A trip to Dubois, Wyoming, south of Yellowstone, inspired her time-travel novel. The landscape and town locations described in NEVER SURRENDER are real.  Jon Daley, a professor at Boise State University, translated the Shoshone language that you will find in the book.
 NEVER SURRENDER, her time travel romance, was released in 2008 in print, e-book and iBook for download to e-Readers and i-Pads. This novel won an Honorable Mention in the 2008 Quill Awards at Writing.com.
NO TURNING BACK, her second novel, an historical taking place in England, 1778, was released in April 2010, and is also in print, eBook and iBook for download to your electronic readers.
Hard at work on her next novel, Whispers at Ghost Point, which she hopes to have available in late fall, 2012. Whispers takes place at an abandoned lighthouse in Wilmington, NC and her main characters from No Turning Back are reincarnated into the present. Join Dana as she learns about her past while working toward her future. The dangers that lurk at an abandoned lighthouse pull her into a past she was unaware of but also involves a man she's never met...in this lifetime! Follow the book’s progress on her website.

Hi Deanna. That boardwalk/pier is so pretty. I bet that lighthouse tour was awesome especially at night.
