Linda Bottjer's new compliation of historical ghost stories is brimming with "spirited" tales.

Fueled by the dream to strike it rich, prospectors flocked to California during the Gold Rush. However, the harsh lifestyle and backbreaking work led many to early graves. Join author Linda Bottjer on a tour through the Gold Country’s most chilling, and true, ghostly tales. In her recent book, “Gold Rush Ghosts of Placerville, Coloma & Georgetown,” read about tales of haunting interest: The hangman of Placerville, whose distinctive wheeze is a sign of his continued presence; the Georgetown miner whose unrequited love for a much younger lady of the night finds him still pining for her in death as he did in life; or in Coloma where the ghost of James Marshall is said to dwell on the lonely hilltop where his cabin and monument now stand. These stories, and many others, capture the ghostly spirit of Gold Country. Decide for yourself whether these stories are fabricated apparitions, or the real McCoy.

After you’ve had your fill of historically thrilling stories, pick up Kat Stroud’s new fantasy and action-adventure novel, “The Lost Power: The Guardians of Worlds” to enter a world of werewolves, revenge, and overcoming past resentments. This story introduces readers to werewolf pack leaders Kia and Gabriel, who must learn to trust one another despite their pasts in order to save Jade, Gabriel’s sister. However, no one could have imagined the struggle they would face and how the fate of humankind would rest in their hands. With enemies lurking in the shadows and savage beasts around every corner, this exhilarating tale will keep you on the edge of your seat and hungry for Stroud’s next creative fantasy fiction novel.

As always, these books are available for purchase or download on
