Join Prism Book Alliance® as GRL 2015 Featured Author Jordan L. Hawk talks with us today.
This will be my fourth GRL. My first was in Albuquerque 2012. I flew out alone, not knowing a single other person there. Hainted had just come out a little over a month before, and Widdershins wouldn’t debut until December, so no one knew who I was, either.
I remember checking in and seeing so many people laughing and greeting each other. They all seemed so happy and friendly!
I, on the other hand, scuttled quickly off to my room and tried not to panic. I stood in front of the bathroom mirror, putting on eyeliner and reminding myself I wasn’t there to hide for four days. I was there to meet other readers, put faces to the names I’d encountered online, get some books signed, and have fun!
And I did. I sat at the bar or at breakfast with people I’d never met, and walked away with a new set of friends. It’s been said again and again how welcoming everyone is at GRL, and it’s true. I came to Albuquerque a stranger and left as part of a community.
So if you’re a nervous new attendee or an old hand, don’t be shy about saying hi to anyone. Come on up, have a seat, and join the conversation. You’ll be glad you did.

Title: Dangerous Spirits
Author: Jordan L. Hawk
Publisher: Self Published
Publication Date: 09/15/2015
Cover Artist: Jordan L. Hawk
Genre: Historical, M/M Romance, Paranormal
After the events of Reyhome Castle, Henry Strauss expected the Psychical Society to embrace his application of science to the study of hauntings. Instead, the society humiliates and blacklists him. His confidence shaken, he can’t bring himself to admit the truth to his lover, the handsome medium Vincent Night.
Vincent’s new life in Baltimore with Henry is disrupted when a friend from the past asks for help with a haunting. In the remote town of Devil’s Walk, old ties and new lies threaten to tear the lovers apart, if a fiery spirit bent on vengeance doesn’t put an end to them first.
Was the spirit inside the hotel? Curse it, he should have warned the hotelkeeper to put down lines of salt at all the doors and windows. The ghost hadn’t entered any buildings yet, as far as he knew, but the precaution should still have been made.
Henry pulled on his nightshirt and spectacles. Vincent motioned for Henry to remain still, and turned all his attention to listening. Only the ordinary creak of settling beams came from inside the hotel. No screams or startled cries sounded. Just the wild ringing of the Franklin bells outside.
There came a low scrape, like a fingernail against glass.
Henry started beside him, and Vincent grabbed his hand automatically. The sound came again, its pitch grating on Vincent’s nerves.
“The window,” Henry whispered, his breath puffing in the icy air. He stared fixedly at the tightly drawn curtains. One bare foot slid across the floor, edging closer to the aperture.
Nothing. Just the bells, ringing their frantic alarm.
Henry glanced at Vincent, then back to the window. His hand trembled visibly as he reached out and brushed the fabric back just an inch.
A white eye, without iris or pupil, stared in at them.
