Featured Book of the Week: The Haunting: An Electric Eclectic Book by Karen J Mossman

This week’s featured book is The Haunting by Karen J Mossman.


When a man-mountain of a guy walks into a café and asks for you by name, you sit up and take notice. Cassie is instantly attracted to Damien Mathers, who is also a World Super Bike Champion. He wants her help to banish a ghost. However, Cassie explains she is a clairvoyant, not an exorcist. Damien though, is very persuasive!

The Haunting takes Cassie on a journey she won’t forget. A ghost who leaves her un-nerved and scared – not because of it, but what it unleases within her.

Damien doesn’t believe in the paranormal, until he witness something he can’t explain. He also falling in love, but how can he love her dark side?

Can Cassie hold on to Damien? Can she banish the ghosts and save her relationship?”

“Karen J Mossman manages something quite unitique. This is a story that will make you laugh and scare you at the same time.”

“Cassie came to me one night and the following morning I wrote a short story. I found myself really liking her, she was funny, sassy, and had a great relationship with her brother. Two more stories followed and I ended up with four stories which I put into a book and called in The Adventures of Cassidy Newbold.
I was then challenged to write a short story featuring a hot male and motor sport of some kind. So I decided to make it a Cassie Newbold story.”

Damien and Daniel were very much alike, and I much preferred Damien, which was just as well, really. Their look and build were so similar they could have been twins, but they weren’t.
Rachel was saying, “Every encounter I’ve had with her has been on the stairs or the landing. I even heard her name whispered. That’s why I knew it. I couldn’t believe it when you said it out loud, Cassie. Have you come across something like this before?”
The waitress arrived and took our orders. When she left, they looked at me expectantly.
“Nothing surprises me anymore. Your ghost seems intent on reliving the day she died. She was a slave brought into the country and then someone killed her.”
Rachel gasped, Daniel and Damien appeared sceptical and Damien said, “Come on, how can you possibly know that…”
“I saw someone at the top of the stairs, they moved away as I looked up.”
“They’re not real, y’know,” Damien said.
Rachel answered him. “Then how do you explain what happened?”
He shook his head. “I don’t know, it’s just bizarre.”
“It is.” I agreed.
“Well, I’m sorry,” Rachel said, emphatically. “There is no way I’m moving in with her walking up and down the stairs like that.”
Daniel huffed, his eyes gazing heavenwards with expirations. “This is going well!”
“So, what’s next?” Rachel asked, looking at me. Her large eyes blinked several times, and I think she expected me to perform a miracle.
“All I can tell you is what you already know. The house is haunted. I don’t know if I can stop it if that’s what you’re expecting.”

Welcome to my featured book of the week. This week, I am highlighting a book that I rebranded last month. I will be launching this book tomorrow, so I thought I’d share it with you, in preparation for my book launch celebration.

This week’s book is entitled Stories Outside the Box: An electric Eclectic Book

Written by Ann Harrison



a little book filled with magic, ferries, music, an angel or two, and even a bit of mystery.

Fly away on the wings of a simple drop of rain with Anna as she follows the music that fills her heart.

Have you ever had a breakdown in the middle of the road and wondered how you’d get home? Read about the miraculous end to what could have been a perilous journey for Bill and his family.

Mystery buffs and techno geeks will love An Unusual Glitch, a story about a county wide technology glitch that threatens to ruin the county’s computer infrastructure, if the problem isn’t resolved before it’s too late.  Enjoy a couple of new mysteries along the way.

You may be enchanted by a Christmas miracle that starts with a child’s prayer and a tinkling bell.

Ride in a sleigh carried on the wings of a snowflake, ride the wind on the wings of an autumn leaf or fly away on a swing!

There’s an adventure waiting for readers of all ages in each delightful little story.

Book Excerpt:

A Light at the Top of the Stairs


“Meet me at the warehouse on Fourth Street,” The note read. A frisson of fear, mixed with excitement ran up my spine as I read the note, I found on my bedside table this morning. I asked myself if I would be in danger, or would the love of my life meet me for a rendezvous?

When I arrived at the warehouse, I saw no one. The main floor had nothing to speak of. An eerie chill crept up my spine as my footsteps bounced off the bare walls and echoed back at me.

I stood at the foot of a tall spiral staircase at the end of a dark empty hallway. My uneasiness turned to fear as I took my first tentative steps. A light coming from somewhere high above me, drew me upward and onward. “Who’s there?” I called as I clamber up the winding staircase. My fear mounted with each step I took.

I turned and tried to reverse my steps, when an invisible hand brought me to a complete stop. “Don’t go away, I need you here.”

What a soothing voice! I turned and followed the light up to the top of the stairs. The disembodied pleading cry nearly broke my heart. Had the stranger been rejected before, or was this a day he’d been waiting for all his life? Then I saw him, a figure dressed in jeans, a white t-shirt and a cowboy hat.

“Who are you? Did I dream you into existence, or have my prayers been answered?” I awaited his answer as I stepped into a circular room, where the man of my dreams waited for me.

I saw the familiar face of the man I have always loved from a distance. “Well hello!” I stammered.

“Come with me. Let’s dance the night away.” He took me by the hand, and I stood on his toes, as we danced off into the sunset.
