H is for Joya Field's new release, HEREAFTER


Hi everyone,
The one thing I love to do on my blog is promote the amazing, talented people I meet in my life and introduce them to you. Today, I’m so happy to have my friend, Joya Fields back on my blog. 



H is for HEREAFTER, her wonderful new release. 



Such a beautiful cover! I just love it.

I loved HEREAFTER, but don't just take my word for it. Here is what the readers are saying about HEREAFTER.
·        I was completely fascinated by the world created in HEREAFTER.

·        Ok, I loved this book. I saw the excerpt and had to read it and sometimes that gets me in trouble because let us be honest, people do not put the best parts of their books as excerpts. Not the case here. I loved this mystery/love story/paranormal adventure/time travel story. It flowed beautifully, I could not put it down, and I totally had the wrong solution to the mystery.

·        This is a great book, such a vivid imagination – took me right away with the story line. Loved this book and can’t wait for the next one!




Blurb From HEREAFTER
When by-the-numbers accountant Rob Morrison, a skeptic of all things paranormal, moves into a new apartment and discovers it is haunted by the corporeal ghost of a beautiful woman, he must hastily reconsider his beliefs and revisit his painful past.

With no memory of her time on earth, Angie Barsotti doesn’t understand why she’s compelled to visit the same apartment every night as a ghost caught between two worlds. If she’s to have a chance to move on, she needs to find the missing pieces of her life and death through the man who lives there…if only he’d believe in her.

Together they struggle to find the truth about her death and stumble upon a very pleasurable way to time travel, hopeful they can prevent her death. But someone doesn’t want them to discover the truth. And if she’s human again, will she have any memories of her time as a ghost…and more importantly, will she remember the man who helped her find her way?

Excerpt, HEREAFTER 
Angel’s body tingled. Her skin rippled with electricity, and she recognized the signs that she’d be transported soon.
Yes. Finally. She closed her eyes, wishing she could rush the transition from her world to his. Cool air prickled her skin and she stood in the man’s dark apartment. With moonlight shining through the sheers, she could make out his form on the sofa.
He jumped up and faced her.
She wanted to speak, but she couldn’t.
“The electricity went off again,” he said.
She frowned.
He stepped closer. “Ghosts don’t exist.”
No. He couldn’t banish her again. She needed something in this world. The lights flickered, sizzled, and then went off again.
Please don’t tell me to go away; it makes me go away. She might not have a voice in this world, but she could at least think it. She would not go, not when potential answers waited in this place.
The man stepped closer. “What are you doing? Angie, why do you keep coming here?”
Don’t tell me to leave…don’t tell me to leave. Pictures flew into her mind. People smiling and laughing. A tree in the corner with white lights and boxes under it….
He’d called her Angie.
“You know me?” Her words came out a whisper, but at least they finally came out. Tears tracked down her cheeks. The electricity flickered on, and then, stayed off. The air stopped sizzling. She blinked to adjust her eyes to the darkness again.
“Christ, this can’t be happening.” He moved his fingers over something in his hand and then pocketed it.
She closed the distance between them and grasped his upper arms, pleading him with her eyes because her voice had left her again.
“Yes, I know you.” He glanced away and looked out the window, let out a huff of breath, and then gazed at her. “Your name is Angie Barsotti and you used to live here.”
No wonder the place felt so familiar. Her spirits lifted. He could help her find out who she was, help her find out what was going on.
“And,” he dragged a hand through his hair. “You died and I don’t believe in ghosts.”
Cold air, cold as ice tore through her, ripping her from the apartment.

I wrote a comment earlier thanking you for having me (and Hereafter) on your blog today, but somehow Blogger ate my comment.
So thanks very much for having me and congrats on your upcoming release! :)

Loni!
I agree 100% with you. Joya can tell a great ghost story. I love romance stories with a supernatural element and Joya's ghost story is one of those I can't put down.
I love seeing you on my blog, Loni. Come back soon. :)

I loved Joya's Hereafter ghost story. So sensual, unexpected plot twists and lovable characters. Very atmospheric, too. Great read! XNaomi
