James Garcia Jr - Seeing Ghosts

Today I have a cover reveal for the latest book by talented author James Garcia Jr!  Seeing Ghosts

Seeing Ghosts...
Paul Herrera finds himself bequeathed a mysterious old house near the California central coast
by a deceased aunt he never knew. The woman who shows it to him is the spitting image of his wife,
taken from him three years before in a senseless car accident which also took his unborn son. While he
deals with the ghosts of a past he cannot let go, there are new ghosts Paul must deal with - alone for the
week in the expansive two-storey house that he will soon discover holds many secrets. Eventually, he
will see that he is surrounded by ghosts as he struggles to hold onto the only thing that he has left in this
world - his sanity.

I've always dreamed of finding out at a will-reading that I'll inherit a fortune, but only if I can spend one whole night in a haunted mansion. Obviously James' book will be just the thing for me! Seeing Ghosts will be released June 5th - I'll be looking forward to it!


  1. Sounds like a good book, and the cover is a bit mysterious. She's like a female Orpheus, except the chair isn't red leather.

    "No one knows what happened, but we do know it was us who scorched the sky." sounds nice and ghosty.

  2. What a stunning cover! Looks like a great read.

  3. Thank you, everyone. Especially you, Charmaine. That was very nice of you to do this for me. *hugs* i got your note about doing a before/after story. Sounds good. I'm sure other Indies would like to hear where I've been. Make sure you remind me sometime this summer, ok?


  4. James, great to see your book out. Ahhh -- the sweet fruition of hard work. The story sounds great and that cover is equally compelling.

  5. If I had to spend the night in a haunted mansion in order to inherit a fortune, I'd only do it if the Ghostbusters could come with me. :)

  6. I love the cover and the premise has me hooked!

  7. I've always had an attachment for old houses. Just the mention of them had me hooked to this book. Looking forward to reading it :)

  8. Thanks, Charmaine, for taking the time to help me out. I really appreciate it! Can you take the path options you outlined one step further? (I'd already gotten that far.) Let's stick with Antarctica, okay. (It's not remotely connected to my WIP, just a fun example.) We have Mystery; we have the options that Amazon allows. But, say, one of the options is Historical Mystery with a sub-class, say Frozen Mysteries. There's a way to go further, beyond what Amazon generically offers, to, say, Explorer's Iceberg, using the > marker. Amazon allows an author to do this without penalty or anything negative. Problem is, there's no explanation as to how. (I've inquired.) The several articles that Google popped up just said to use >. I tried that without it taking. I know I don't have to go into the HTML. So it's gotta be a procedure.

    The reason I want to narrow my topic's search is because Louisiana has 64 parishes (counties). I want to narrow the path to one specific parish, where I grew up. This parish is where the first explorers from France established their base (from which my family originates) and has a unique history, even for Louisiana and its multiple colonial powers (France, Spain, England) prior to the Louisiana Purchase, then statehood. I'd like for my books to hit the path that leads to a more specific library classification beyond, say, Southern Literature, or some such.
    So, hmmm, I'd appreciate any suggestion you might have. Many thanks!!!

    And I noted the book you spotlighted. I like ghost books in old houses.

    1. Hi Kittie,

      I'll have a play on Amazon and see if I can figure out how to add your own path. I'll get back to you!


  9. Sounds like it could be a real psychological read. Wow, what a cover!

  10. Hmm, sounds like my kind of read. I love haunted house stories. The cover is very good.


  11. Great cover and I like the description.

  12. Hi, Charmaine,

    Sounds intriguing. The cover hints that there will be all sorts of unexplained stuff going on.

  13. It would be fun to inherit a haunted mansion! There's a section of town here that has lots of hidden rooms/entrances/tunnels and bomb shelters, and I'd love to own one of those homes. They are VERY expensive, though.

  14. Even if you offered me millions, I don't think I'd go into a haunted house. I'm a scaredy-cat...
    But the book sounds great! I also like the cover.
