Guest post on Kate Serene Monroe’s blog.
I’m delighted to welcome Bryan Hall to my blog today. Bryan is the author of The Girl, the first in a series of novellas to be published by Angelic Knight Press.
First, I want to thank Kate for graciously letting me invade her blog for a day to spread the word about the release of “The Girl”, a novella out today and part of The Southern Hauntings Saga. Any good series needs a protagonist that can hold your attention, and I hope that Creighton Northgate fills that role.
Crate is the central figure in the Saga, and he’s got his fair share of baggage. His intentions are noble enough on the surface – he meanders throughout the southeast (and occasionally a little further north) and helps people try to deal with their paranormal issues. Ghosts, monsters, possession, bigfoot, and all the other stuff that we hear of in hushed whispers or see on the Discovery Channel’s shows Crate stares down on a fairly constant basis.
But he’s not doing this out of the goodness of his heart. He’s making a decent amount of cash charging for his services, and while he lives out of his truck the guy is doing alright for himself. But even the money isn’t the real reason he’s a nomad. That’s because for all his skills and abilities at helping others with their paranormal problems, Crate can’t deal with his own.
He has his own personal ghost that won’t let him rest. And no matter how far he runs, he can’t escape it. And the ghost holds secrets that even Crate has forgotten, secrets that are too dark to face and too terrifying to remember. So Crate runs, just as he’s been doing for the last decade. But the ghost is changing. It’s starting to communicate, and when it does it will lead him down a path that will only end at those secrets, one way or another.
