Wicked After Dark blog hop!

To celebrate my participation in Natasha and Nikki's blog hop, I'm giving away a copy of my new paranormal novella I Heard Your Voice.

Sex on haunted ground

I've always had a fascination with the paranormal, both in the real-life sense and the entertainment sense. I watch a lot of Most Haunted, among other things. So it didn't take much to create Reed James, the arrogant medium from my new paranormal I Heard Your Voice.

Reed is, frankly, an arsehole, whose relationship with my heroine Tamar Steele, a sensitive with a team of paranormal investigators, is entirely without feeling. So why does it endure? Because Reed claims that sex on haunted ground increases paranormal activity.

It's an interesting idea which I had great fun developing as I wrote. Could this realistically work? Spirits are often said to feed off energy - would sex on haunted ground create that energy? Would the sense of excitement, or danger, create enough power to fuel  more spirit activity than would usually take place?

Or is it down to the people involved? Reed, we discover, prefers sensitives for his pre-investigation ritual. Does the physical connection also enable a psychic connection? Or does it simply enhance his own psychic abilities?

Or is he just a lying jackass?

One lucky commenter will receive a copy of I Heard Your Voice and can find out all this and more for free.
