I'm participating in Trick-Or-Treat Reads, a fun Halloween Blog Hop, and giving away free books as treats! Stop by the blog for your choice of an eBook of Polar Night or The Ghosts of Aquinnah, then head over to Amazon where you can get the Polar Night prequel The Turnagain Arm for free. That's all there is to it. No tricks, just treats!
The hop is hosted by the wonderful author Patricia Lynne and nearly forty authors are taking part, so visit Patricia here to see how you can fill your Trick or Treat bag with lots of great books.
I'm also thrilled to announce that the new anthology from my writing group Untethered Realms is now available! Mayhem In The Air includes "ten stories of horror, the fantastic, the future, and macabre, all embracing the element of air." I am proud to have my short horror story Cardinal Sin as part of the collection. Get your copy today for just 99 cents!
Thanks to my publisher Ink Smith Publishing my books are now available on BookBuzzr. You can read excerpts and more from Polar Night, Polar Day, and The Ghosts of Aquinnah. Check out my page here.
If you like what you read, please consider sharing the excerpts or purchasing the books through the Amazon links included on the page.

Five Star Reviews for The Ghosts of Aquinnah:
5 of 5 stars: "I know a book is great when I keep thinking about it long after I've put it down. That was the case with Julie Flanders' second novel, Ghosts of Aquinnah." ~ Lisa Regan, author of Finding Claire Fletcher and Aberration.
5 of 5 stars: "This novel has many components that I love: history, a ghost, a love story, mystery, and character development. Flanders ties them all together seamlessly." ~ T.B. Markinson, author of Marionette and A Woman Lost
5 of 5 stars: "Flanders creates layered and realistic characters. I found myself mesmerized and saddened by their tragedies and triumphs. This is definitely a book I would read again." ~ Susan Oloier, author of Haunted, Outcast, and My Life as a Misfit
5 of 5 stars: "A deftly and delicately woven ghost story, this novel gripped me from the start. A brilliant read, and highly recommended" ~ Annalisa Crawford, author of That Sadie Thing and Cat and The Dreamer
