This morning, I finished polishing my 20,000-word ghost story, Her General in Gray. The General is the ghost of an American Civil War General, John Sibley Allen (my grandfather’s actual name), who uses all his spooky tricks to chase away the new owner of his plantation, Allen Hall. Autumn Acardi Hartley isn’t going anywhere. This feisty Northern lass stands up to the General in fine modern fashion. I emailed the story to my editor. Fingers crossed for its fate. If she rejects the submission, however, I’ll self-pub it on Amazon.
