Ruby Cameron is an ambitious reporter for a local paper where she is fed scraps of news, and lives with a man whose “idea of living dangerously is to leave the heating on when we pop out to the shops”. But after catching her squeaky clean boyfriend in flagrante delicto she ups sticks and moves into her own small home, only to discover the ghostly presence of a cheeky rock star who becomes her confidant as the dynamics of her small town, and her feelings about her dashing new boss, begin to throw up more questions than she can answer. Will Ruby discover who she really is, and perhaps more importantly, who she wants to be?

Guest post - Character post of Steve Vee:

Well Hello!

I’m Stevie Vee, described as Scotland’s answer to Jon Bon Jovi – or at least I was until I died suddenly at the age of 29….

Julie has allowed me to introduce myself to you guys – well, I have a way with the ladies, if you know what I mean!

My band “Legend” were going places. We had adoring fans and groupies. Gorgeous girls gazing at us.

Even some of the blokes come to think of it. Wow, you should’ve seen the talent that would rock up to our gigs – long hair, long legs - and that was just the guys!

There was one beautiful girl in particular – no, I’m not going there. Best forgotten.

All I wanted to do was sing, write music and be on stage. It’s where I felt I belonged. I suppose it felt like me and the other guys in the band would go on forever.

Yeah well. That didn’t exactly go according to plan, did it? All my hopes and dreams up in smoke.

I was going to say at least I’ve still got my health, but that’s not true is it? Good job I’ve still got my sense of humour.

I don’t have the lights, the adoration or the crowds any more but my voice is still as spine-tingling as ever, even if I say so myself.

I’m still a looker too, in a pale ghostly rocker kind of way! It’s just a pity there’s no-one else around to hear me belting out those classic rock anthems.

Oh well, better get back to composing a new ballad.

When you’re a ghostly rock singer, there isn’t a lot else to think about – except how I came to meet my end so suspiciously…

Rock on guys!

About the Author:

Julie Shackman

I trained as a journalist but writing romance has always been a dream of mine. When I’ve not got my head in a book or drafting one, I write verses and captions for greetings card companies. Writing at home seems to be incredibly difficult for me – I usually require coffee, music and noise.

“Rock My World” is my first contemporary romance novel . I have just finished writing my second novel and am polishing that at the moment whilst beginning to do some research for my third. These are also contemporary romances with a good dose of humour (hopefully!). I’m married, have two sons and live in Scotland.
