It is my pleasure to announce the release of The Long Game! I have so enjoyed the writing of this mega-long book. It will answer questions, highlight most of the characters, and hopefully entertain you for a few days. Warning, if you’re going to read it in one sitting, you may need a caffeine drip, sugary treats, and someone else to watch the kids and spouse. If you have a good spouse-sitter, send me their credentials!
Here’s the blurb:
An unusual messenger appears at Mia’s farm during a spring storm. “Tell him all weren’t lost in the Cardamom Mountains,” he says and is suddenly gone, swept up in a swirling eddy of rain and leaves. The message is intended for both Sheriff John Ryan and Father Santos. It prompts the two, along with Mia and Murphy, to return to the place they first met, Cambodia.
Meanwhile, the Big Bear Lake Cemetery is vandalized, and bodies are found to be missing from the Weller mausoleum. To make matters worse, the deputy in charge of the investigation quickly becomes missing too. Acting-Sheriff Tom Braverman deputizes Ted, Cid and Ed to find his deputy. What dangerous game are these spirits playing with both the living and the dead?
Mia has avoided the corrupted ground of the Big Bear Lake Cemetery all her life since she was found screaming at the crossroads of the graveyard when she was a young child. She tries to stay out of this investigation, but there is another restless spirit there who will only deal with her. This brings her back to the graveyard to face her greatest fear, in a fight that she may not win. Will her nemesis claim her, or will Mia survive another encounter with the Countess?
Come and join Mia, Murphy, PEEPs, and friends as they navigate through the supernatural and the paranormal worlds to discover what “The Long Game” has been all along. Who are the players, and who are the pieces? And who will survive the game?
“The Long Game” is the 19th novel of the “Haunted Series.”
Extra extraordinary treat! The Webguy has taken my and Brian Corrigan’s “Birdman’s Lament” (Chapter 47) and put it to music. It’s here on the website under Free Song/Media. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to play it while reading Chapter 47, but after is fine too. Aaron Fitch’s and Kelli S.’s voices make this lament really come to life. Thank you to all involved!
I know many of you are saving this for vacation. For those who do read this right away, give me a shout and tell me if you liked it. Until then, I’ll be pacing the floor. Love and Hugs, Alexie Aaron
