Hey, everyone! I’m super excited to welcome back friend and author Jan Sikes to my blog today. She has a brand new release, Ghostly Interference, and is here to talk about it. I already have this on my Kindle and look forward to some holiday reading.
Jan, take it away!
Hi, Joan. I am very grateful to you for opening up your blog site to me to help launch my new book!! I truly appreciate your generosity!
In Ghostly Interference, Jag Peters has the uncanny ability to see the ghost of Sam Jett. Of course, he does not know who or what he sees right away, and the whole idea of it freaks him out. He’s never known he had this kind of gift before. It becomes apparent that Sam is desperate to help his sister, Rena. In that desperation, he can materialize in full combat gear and make himself visible to Jag.
Let’s take a look.
Once outside, he glanced toward his car to see a soldier standing beside the passenger door in full desert camouflage uniform. So intent was his focus on the soldier that he didn’t see the car he stepped in front of.
A blast from the annoyed driver’s horn jolted him.
He jumped back to the curb and jerked his head in the direction of his car to find the soldier gone. Had he imagined him? He looked real enough.
He scanned the line of parked cars but could see no sign of the mysterious soldier.
Maybe he’d simply imagined it. After all, it had been a very strange day. He hurried to his car. The air inside was nothing short of frigid, and Jag’s breath fogged in front of him. How strange. It was a mild spring day.
Jag started the engine, and the temperature instantly returned to normal. Perhaps he was losing every strand of sanity he had left. He drove slowly through the parking lot, searching for the soldier. He only found people heading into the bar or leaving and none dressed in military clothing.
Once he exited onto the street, he crept along, watching for any sign of the disappearing soldier. It didn’t make any sense. First of all, why would a soldier be in full combat gear with a rifle slung across his back in the parking lot of an upscale bar in Cedar Springs, Texas? And secondly, where on earth did he disappear to so quickly?
After turning around for one more pass through the bar parking lot, he drove toward home, scratching his head. He didn’t doubt what he saw but couldn’t for the life of him figure out where the soldier had gone within seconds.
Maybe he was losing his mind.
What would you think if you had this experience? Would you be as freaked out as Jag?
I can honestly say that I’ve seen apparitions. But only one was in human form, not just a mist or orb. Several years back, when my husband was still alive, I awoke in the middle of the night to see a short man wearing a brown fedora hat standing in our bedroom, staring out the back window. My husband had been building a rock patio and had just completed it. The next morning, when I told him what I’d seen, he immediately said I described his grandfather, who had been dead for many years. It was as if Mr. Kirby was looking at Rick’s handiwork.
What about you? Have you had ghostly experiences?
Jag Peters has one goal in his quiet comfortable life—to keep his karma slate wiped clean. A near-miss crash with a candy apple red Harley threatens to upend his safe world. He tracks down the rider to apologize properly. Slipping into a seedy biker bar, he discovers the rider isn’t a “he”, it’s a “she”, a dark-haired beauty.
Rena Jett is a troubled soul, who lives in a rough world. She wants no part of Jag’s apology, but even while she pushes him away, she is attracted to him. When he claims to see a ghost—her brother—can she trust him? And could her brother’s final gift, a magical rune stone with the symbol for “happily ever after” have the power to heal her wounds and allow opposites to find common ground—perhaps even love?
