Congratulations to Gordon Bonnet and Motina Books on the release of The Communion of Shadows, a ghost story set in the bayou country of southern Louisiana.
"A set of compelling and atmospheric ghost stories with a real sense of place and time." ~Amazon Review ★★★★★
$0.99 Kindle edition (free via Kindle Unlimited)
It's August of 1850, deep in the bayou country of southern Louisiana. Four good friends are working in the fields harvesting the crops when a sudden thunderstorm drives them all indoors. There's kind, warm-hearted J. P. Ayo; eager, earnest young T-Joe Lirette; wry, hard-bitten Clovis Dantin; and gentle, easy-going Leandre Naquin.
"Hell of a night," Leandre remarks, as they share a drink and wait for the storm to pass. "The kind of night when the ghosts walk."
This seemingly offhand comment is the impetus for each of the four men to share his own ghost story. The tales the men tell—by turns tragic, funny, frightening, and heartbreaking—give them a window into their friends' souls. When one of them confesses that his own personal ghost story isn't over, that he's still trapped in the middle of it, the events that follow will test the depth of their loyalty and friendship in ways that none of them could ever have dreamed.
What is certain is that after that night, none of the four will ever be the same.
About the Author
Since his "Crazy Bird Bends His Beak" won critical acclaim in Mrs. Moore’s 1st-grade class at Central Elementary School in St. Albans, West Virginia, Gordon Bonnet hasn’t stopped writing. He just can’t.
Twenty-two books later and he’s just warming up.
Queer speculative fiction, a wildly popular, often-sarcastic but always educational daily blog Skeptophilia, and a bevy of psychic detectives solving mysteries—Gordon wields his useless knowledge of archaic languages and obscure science facts to cut at the very heart of dumb.
