Cover Reveal for THE FORGOTTEN CHILD by #PitchWars mentor Melissa Erin Jackson

Monday, 20 August 2018  |  Posted by Jaime Dill

The Forgotten Child

Releasing October 10, 2018

Summary:

Ever since Riley Thomas, reluctant medium extraordinaire, accidentally released a malevolent spirit from a Ouija board when she was thirteen, she’s taken a hard pass on scary movies, haunted houses, and cemeteries. So when her best friend pressures her into spending a paranormal investigation weekend at the infamous Jordanville Ranch—former home of deceased serial killer Orin Jacobs—Riley is one-hundred-percent not ready.

Shortly after their arrival at the ranch, the spirit of a little boy contacts Riley; a child who went missing—and was never found—in 1973.

In order to put the young boy’s spirit to rest, she has to come to grips with her ability. But how can she solve a mystery that happened a decade before she was born? Especially when someone who knows Orin’s secrets wants to keep the truth buried—no matter the cost.

 

About the Author:

Melissa Erin Jackson has loved stories for as long as she can remember, but only started penning her own during her freshman year of college, where she majored in Wildlife Biology at UCDavis. Yet, while she was neck-deep in organic chemistry and physics, she found herself writing stories in the back of class about fairies, trolls, and magic. She finished her degree, but it never captured her heart the way writing did.

Now she owns her own dog walking business and writes during spare moments. All her books have an element of “other”…witches, ghosts, UFOs. There’s no better way to escape the real world than getting lost in a fictional one.

She lives in Northern California with her very patient boyfriend and way too many pets.
