I lowered the price of Help for the Haunted: A Decade of Vera Van Slyke Ghostly Mysteries and Guilt Is a Ghost: A Vera Van Slyke Ghostly Mystery by $3 (US). This gives you the chance to either meet the great ghost hunter or to catch up on her investigations. You see, there’s a third book on its way!
That third adventure, titled The Hound of the Seven Mounds: A Vera Van Slyke Ghostly Mystery, involves a strange entity lurking across the pastures of a rural Oklahoma community in 1923. Is it a cruel “elemental,” a spirit conjured to protect and avenge those buried in the ancient burial mounds that dot the landscape? Witnesses describe the weird being as dog-faced — and it’s gathering a pack of fierce dogs around itself — so is it a werewolf? And if it’s all just a hoax, it’s become a dangerous and deadly one. Only the shrewd insight and ghost-hunting experience of Vera Van Slyke can solve this riddle!
Those who have read Help for the Haunted or Guilt Is a Ghost know that I inherited the manuscripts for those investigations from my great-grandaunt, Ludmila Prášilová (shown to right of Van Slyke in the photo above). My ancestor chronicled the cases she had shared with Vera for her husband, who died in World War One. I worried that those might be the last of the memoirs of the woman who died with the name Lida Bergson. However, I recently heard from a distant relative, one who wishes to remain anonymous and about whom I knew nothing. She had come across the first two books and then contacted me. More chronicles existed! These had been penned for Lida’s daughter, Vera Rose, and had been passed along another branch of the family.
I should have The Hound of the Seven Mounds edited and available within a couple of months. (Note to self: get going on the cover!) In the meantime, find out about Help for the Haunted here and Guilt Is a Ghost here. Remember, they’re both on sale, but only until this third book becomes available.
