Win a $100 Amazon gift card

To celebrate the release of my new supernatural suspense book, Temple of Ghoststhe third book in the GhostWriters series, I want to give you a $100 Amazon gift card.

Because of the delay in its releaseTemple of Ghosts has no reviews. So, here’s the deal: the first fifty people to read the book and review it will be entered into a draw for the gift card. The raffle will run until there are fifty reviews for the book on Amazon, so please share this post and tell your reader friends.

*Once you’ve left a review, leave a comment on this post letting me know your Amazon handle so I can make sure you’re entered into the draw.*

While of course I’d prefer you purchase the book to review it–writers gotta eat, you know–it’s not required. You can send me a pm at jh (at) jhmoncrieff (dot) com, telling me about the scariest thing that ever happened to you in five-hundred words or less, and I’ll send you the ebook to review for free.

One in fifty is pretty good odds! Here’s more about the book:

In the shadow of the jackal…

Medium Kate Carlsson has returned from Poveglia with Jackson, but there’s no time for domestic bliss. Something strange is happening in her sleepy Vermont town—water turns to blood, frogs fall from the sky, and an unlikely stowaway lurks in her kitchen. Even worse, Kate’s friend Eden, a noted Egyptologist, has gone missing.

Darkness surrounds Kate’s protégé, twelve-year-old Lily Walkins, and Lily’s uncle, a soldier who died in Egypt while working on a top-secret government project. Kate suspects the soldier’s untimely death holds the key to the disasters befalling Nightridge.

To solve the mystery and save Lily, Kate and Jackson journey to an ancient temple where the line between god and monster is blurred. With the help of an enigmatic Egyptian psychic, they must face their greatest foe yet.

***

To write Temple of Ghosts, I traveled to Egypt in January, and I drew on a lot of my experiences there when writing the third Kate and Jackson adventure. While this book picks up where The Girl Who Talks to Ghosts left off, there is no need to read the other books in the series first.

Temple of Ghosts is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iBooks, Overdrive, Playster, Tolino, 24symbols, and Chapters.

  5. Plagues in Vermont? Must be some mighty powerful stuff to cross the ocean. Egypt conjures up so much mystery, ancient wisdom and such. I must say I am a tad jealous you got to visit as part of your research.

      Thanks, Barbara. And yes, very powerful stuff.

      I’ve wanted to visit Egypt since I was a little girl, and while I was working on the other book, which is set in ancient Egypt, I got very frustrated. I just couldn’t write about it without being there. The smallest details, like what the sand feels like or what the air smells like, escaped me.

      I hope to get at least 50, Chrys. We’ll see how it goes. It takes a while to get word of mouth going.

  10. That’s a shame that it got delayed. Doing a giveaway for reviewers seems like a good idea – hope that ups the amount of reviews you get. It’s on my TBR list. Hoping to get to it soon.

  11. Delays are part of the deal, but the hardest part for me. I’ll bet they are for you and others in this business!

      Hi Lee. I just felt guilty more than anything, but life happens. I’d hoped the book would be out by Halloween, and it was released less than a week later, so at least it wasn’t too long of a delay. But there was no time to get pre-release reviews, blurbs, or do a pre-order, etc.

  12. You’re lacking share buttons! I’m rubbish at reading in a timely manner, but I figured I could at least tweet about it for you and maybe someone else will get a review.

      The share buttons are on the left side of the screen. As you scroll down, they should “travel” with you. They’re also on the photographs. Hover over any photo on my blog, and you’ll see them appear. Hope that helps.

  13. I make no promises, but I will try to bump this to the top of my list. 🙂
