Had to share! Today I found out that GHOST OF THE NILE is a
Finalist in the 2016 RONE Awards, and I was also notified that the cover art had won the Paranormal Category in the RCRW “Cover Me Contest”.
Frauke Spanuth of Croco Designs get all the credit for the cover art win – she does such gorgeous work! I love collaborating with her on my ancient Egyptian covers.
Congratulations to all the Finalists in both contests!
Here’s the story for the novel:
Betrayed, murdered, and buried without proper ceremony, Egyptian warrior Periseneb is doomed to roam the gray deserts of the dead as a ghost for all eternity.
But then the goddess of truth offers him a bargain: return to the world of the living as her champion for 30 days. If he completes his mission, he’ll be guaranteed entry into Paradise. Periseneb agrees to the bargain but, when he returns to the living world, two hundred years have passed and nothing is quite as he expected.
Neithamun is a woman fighting to hang onto her family’s estate against an unscrupulous nobleman who desires the land as well as the lady. All seems lost until a mysterious yet appealing ex-soldier, Periseneb, appears out of nowhere to help her fight off the noble’s repeated attacks.
Meanwhile, Periseneb’s thirty days are rushing by, and he’s powerless against the growing attraction between himself and Neithamun. But their love can never be. For his Fate is to return to the Afterlife, and Death cannot wed with Life…
