Tonight I have the wonderful pirate queen K A Perkins on the blog, with her ghostly take Thores-Cross. If you don't know why I call her the pirate queen then you need to go check out her other books, haha.
Anyway, I'll let her take over with an excerpt from her newest book...
Thores-Cross Sneaky Peak
Thores-Cross, Sneak Peak
'The writing is near flawless. Your voice is crisp and natural, carrying the reader into lives of the characters and the world you have created seamlessly.' – Lauren Grey, author of 'Threads of Time'.
'I love your historicals. They feel so real. I can already tell this one is excellent. The back and forth between Emma's modern life and Jennet's 18th century life is tantalizing.' - Laura Emmons, author of 'Seeing Magic' and 'Healing Hands'.
'…a wonderful piece of writing.' - Lin Churchill, author of 'Pride'.
'Overall I can see this attracting readers of both contemporary and historical fiction. It seems that it will gravitate around characters and relationships so perhaps it may have more appeal to women. It was a pleasure to read, Karen and it's setting up the connection between past and present very well' - Lesa Clarke, author of 'The Glass House'.
'Wow, I've never been into ghost stories before, but this is great!' – Lesley Taylor, author of 'Heart-Brother' and 'Changeling'.
'Startling but extremely accurate use of language . . . Very emotive and skilfully handled . . . I found your writing fluid and accurate but more importantly, completely enthralling.' – R.M.A., author of 'The Snow Lily'.
'This is terrific.' - Chris Bostic, author of 'Game Changer' and 'Fugitives From Northwoods'
'As always, your writing is impressive and so is your knowledge of boats. You have clearly taken the time to research the area, the herbs and other various concepts within your book, and it shows and makes the story that much stronger throughout. I really enjoyed this book, truly, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to read it. Well done.'– Claire C Riley, author of 'Limerence'
'I love the way you handle your characters and the way you blend them into the book from the word go but in such a clever way. I can see this has taken you some time to plan out as I can see the way you start a part of the story to know how that particular part is going to end. There is a really nice narrative here coupled with a brilliant flow and pace to it. You have done well and I like this a lot.' – Sean Connolly, author of British Army on the Rampage. (B.A.O.R)
'Very well crafted… a fantastic read' – Annabel Watkinson, author of 'The Year of Us'
'This is an excellent example of the timeslip genre. Both Jennet's and Emma's voices are realistic and representative of the two different time frames. Each of the two life stories has a good hook, making both characters equally interesting. This promises to be a rattling good story.' – Lynne Jones author of The Beaumont Bequest
Come back tomorrow for a competition to win a signed paperback of this creepy ghost story. I read it and couldn't get it out of my head for weeks.
