Jennifer Mueller just learned the release date for her newest new unusual historical. On November 12th, 2009, GHOSTS IN THE NIGHT will be coming out at Red Rose Publishing. Here's an excerpt and the blurb:

Andrew Townsend survived the trenches only to come home to find most of his family had died in their relative safety. When his last uncle dies and leaves him a plantation in far off Ceylon, Andrew drops his life in London and sets out for a new life--only he finds out the past doesn't let him go so easily. With a layabout friend tagging along, and not to mention a case of shell shock that brings to mind the war at every turn, he's more ghost than man. But the woman across the way, as much a ghost as he, is able to help the visions of war as everything he knows is falling apart. Digging up long dead secrets is the only option and it's enough to get them killed.

Join us tomorrow when author Michelle Beattie will be here to talk about ROMANCING THE PIRATE, her latest high-seas adventure romance!

***

We'll also draw the winner of Leanna Renee Hieber's ghostly Victorian romance, THE STRANGELY BEAUTIFUL TALE OF MISS PERCY PARKER. You still have time to throw your name in the hat, if you haven't done so.

***

And stay with us through the coming weeks when we'll be featuring the best unusual historical authors! Michelle Willingham, Kimberley Killion, JoAnn Smith Ainsworth, and Jennifer Linforth will be our guests. We hope you'll join us!

Have a good weekend! If you have an announcement to make for next week, email Carrie. See you next week...
