While I've been busy finishing the last chapters of A Spirited Engagement and sending them to my editor, I realized some of my false starts made an excellent short story detailing how Jasper came to be haunted in the first place. The story has been available on my website since May 7, but should be publishing live to all major eBook vendors today, May 16.
"An Inconvenient Séance" is a short story sitting between "Miss Preston's Predicament" and A Spirited Engagement...
It was a truth universally ignored that sons abhorred being sent to séances in search of a wife.
In this short story (approx. 4,000 words) Jasper Steele has had enough of ghosts to last him a lifetime, so why is he attending a séance? Mostly to appease his mother, who worries about his head and his heart after his summer in the English countryside getting rejected by Mary Trentwood.
Eloise Carterprice has never been one to let a good opportunity escape her, so it's only natural that her ghost appears during the latest séance hosted by her mother.
Will Jasper find a bit of romance? Will Eloise have her bit of fun? Read on, dear Reader, read on!
