collingwood: (Mr. Tarbottom)
"The Last Journey of HMS Dover" is a naval ghost story set in the late 18th century, taken from my book "The Radiant Boy - Four Ghost Stories from the Age of Sail". While the book is only available as a paperback, you now have the unique chance to download this one tale all through November for only £ 1.99.

My revenue per purchase is £ 1.23, and that will go 100% to the animal shelter which I've supported for quite a while. At the moment, the cat house is in dire need of renovation, and I hope I can drum up some funds with this "Hallowe'en Special" so the kitties will get a new home before Christmas.

HMS Dover prepares for her last journey, and so does Captain Ashley. After more than forty years at sea, all he longs for is a hopefully long retirement in the country, surrounded by his family and dogs. Unfortunately, there are rumours of a haunting aboard, and Captain Ashley knows only too well how the reputed presence of a ghost could influence the morale of his superstitious tars.

Of course there are no such things as ghosts, only creaking floorboards, the rustling of rats helping themselves to the provisions and the wind blowing eerily in the rigging...
