My Best Book
I love this story. I wrote about this more in the afterword of the book, but this book is the reason I am still writing. After a difficult time in my personal life, I almost walked away from writing. Reading this book after not having looked at it for several years is what brought me back to writing.
I really do believe this is the best book I’ve written. It goes deep into family and love and what makes life worth living. It fits very well with Shuffled Off and the other books in my “A Ghost’s Memoir” series, but like Drawing the Dead, focuses on the living.
Give it a try. Go read the first chapter right now for free. Let me know what you think.
A Novel of… Love, Life, & Family
A Boy. Sixteen-year-old Aaron Wade. With his “second strike” with leukemia in remission and his health restored, the summer of 1977 feels like a turning point… until he starts to see a ghost in the Cedar City, Utah graveyard.
A Girl. Seventeen-year-old Helena Monfort. She grew up too early, the tough girl with a bad reputation that just needs a friend.
A Ghost: Lionel Malak. A simple man, he doesn’t understand why someone would murder him, but longs for justice so his spirit can rest.
After Helena escapes a date gone bad, a boy, a girl, and a ghost meet in the Cedar City graveyard under the stars. A chance meeting turns into a friendship, a murder investigation, and an exploration of life, death, friendship, and family you will never forget.
From the creative mind of Robert J. McCarter, author of Shuffled Off, comes a novel of love, life, and family (with a ghost).
What Early Readers Are Saying
“A wonderful coming of age story…”
“It was a rollercoaster of emotions through the whole thing…”
“The characters will quickly find their way into your heart and stay there…”
“A book that makes you fall in love with every character–their strengths, weaknesses, their stories, their ‘skeletons in the closet,’ their humanity.”
And Just For Fun
I recently got some new software for creating fun marketing images for books. Here’s an image of the new book sitting on someone’s bed-side table, just waiting to be read.
