Jacket Blurb

Hi folks- I'm fiddling with a jacket blurb.

Would YOU buy this book?

Some crimes are so horrific, they reverberate through the centuries.
In 1605, Sir Walter Calverley’s murderous rampage leaves a family shattered. The killer suffers a torturous execution… but is it truly the end? A noble Yorkshire house stands forever tarnished by blood.

And possessed by anguished spirits.
            As a troubled modern couple vacation in the guesthouse at Calverley Old Hall, playwright Clara, and her scholarly husband Scott, unwittingly awaken a dark history. Clara is trapped and forced back in time to bear witness to a family’s bloody saga. Overtaken by the malevolent echoes, Scott is pushed over the edge from possessive husband to wholly possessed…

            Inspired by a true-life drama from Shakespeare’s day, this is itself a play within a play… a supernatural thriller with a historical core.

Only one player can survive.

‘Murder has took this chamber with full hands
And will ne’er out as long as the house stands.’
~A Yorkshire Tragedy



  1. Are you a professional writer? That has to be the BEST jacket blurb I've seen in a LONG time. Yes, definitely gets my interest.

  2. So kind! I've published a number of short stories, but Base Spirits will be the debut stand-alone novel. I've since tweaked this blurb, and hope to show off a cover design in the next day or two.
