A Glimmer of Ghosts by Hunter J. Skye 💕 Guest Post, Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Paranormal Romance)



One night of filming in the wrong cemetery changes everything for a celebrity ghost-hunter with a half dead brain. When Melisande Blythe discovers that a secret society of wraiths wants her killed or worse, Mel will have to do the one thing she promised she would never do… trust a ghost.

But does the corporeal spirit of her dreams really want her heart or does he want her newfound ability to enslave souls? With Hell on the horizon, Mel is running out of time. She has to stop the fiery invasion or face the darkness warring in her soul.


Ghosts on the Payroll

Now that I think of it, I guess I was born to write ghost stories. That might sound weird, but what would you say if your parents brought you home from the hospital to a spooky late Victorian house smack dab in the middle of a historic district known for its ghosts? I was born and raised in Olde Towne, Portsmouth, VA, where each year, at Halloween, the civic league hosts The Ghost Walk. This eerie lantern tour of the neighborhood has been running for 30 years consecutively. It’s so popular that the city now considers the featured spirits on the tour as ambassadors of a sort.
If that’s not enough reason to become preoccupied with the paranormal, toss in an unusual medical condition called hypnopompic hallucinations. My lifelong struggle with narcolepsy has been a fiesta of frightening symptoms, one of which is hypnagogic and hypnopompic hallucinations. They happen when I’m falling asleep and when I’m waking up. It’s pretty textbook- I wake up abruptly from a nightmare and am unable to move. It’s called sleep paralysis and its tons of fun. There’s always something terrifying in the room with me- usually a ghost or the Shadow Man. I’ve had periods in my life when it has happened to me once or twice a week for months at a time.
After a particularly bad auto-immune flare in 2016, it happened every night. It was a dark time for me. I was afraid to fall asleep. I’d stay up late out of fear, but that only made it worse. Finally, I spoke to my priest who knew I liked to write. He suggested I write about my experiences. A year later, I’d completed an 80,000 word manuscript about a celebrity ghost hunter with type one narcolepsy. It changed my life.
Do I still see ghosts? Yep. But now they’re on the payroll and everyone is much happier.


My mind rolled on the shore of dreams. Each wave of REM stage that washed toward me threatened to sweep me away. I fought the tide as spirits spiraled past us. Where were they going? I reached into an icy current and caught another hand rough with the burdens of his former life. He closed the memory of his calloused fingers over mine.
“What’s wrong?” I asked the ghost. He fixed me with the deep-sea eyes of a faded mariner. His uniform came into view, and I heard the wet clang of a ship bell ringing.
“She’s here.” His voice trembled. “My apologies, Miss. There is no time. You must run!”

Hunter J. Skye is a high-functioning square peg, which turns out to be a prerequisite for writing quirky urban fantasy and paranormal romance.
Her debut novel, A Glimmer of Ghosts, has won four Romance Writers of America awards.
When not typing away on her next novel, Hunter can be found cracking nerdy jokes or waxing existential over a bowl of spaghetti.
She firmly believes this world is ready for a narcoleptic heroine.
One thing about the story:
Many of the spirits appearing in A Glimmer of Ghosts are based on actual ghost stories from the Olde Towne district of Portsmouth, Virginia. Once a year, these stories are told on the city’s annual Halloween Ghost Walk. These apparitions are well known to the residents of Olde Towne, Portsmouth and the city considers them ambassadors of a sort. One such ghost, Colonel William Crawford, founded the town three hundred years ago and is the inspiration for Grayford- Melisande’s haunting lover.
One thing about me:
In 2016 Hunter Skye was diagnosed with a rare REM sleep disorder that mimics the presence of other-worldly entities. In her search for a coping mechanism, Hunter adopted a new life plan- “when life gives you ghosts, write a ghost story.” Now that those specters are on the payroll, everyone is much happier.
Hunter has a Bachelor of the Fine Arts and has won four Romance Writers of America awards pre-publication for her debut novel, A Glimmer of Ghosts. Worldwide release is 2/19/20.
