A few months ago, I had the opportunity to join the ranks of an author group, many of who have reached the coveted Bestselling Author status. Among this illustrious group is Greek author, Effrosyni Moschoudi, whose novels set in stunning locations are drenched in gorgeous Greek sunshine, something those of us stuck in the lands of ice and snow can never get enough off.
Today, her highly regarded and awarded beach romance, The Ebb, is on sale for 99 cents, but this is a LIMITED TIME OFFER!
Now, a little more about this great book!
Would you trust a ghost to help you find true love? Sofia, the heroine of The Lady of the Pier trilogy does just that. Start reading The Ebb to find out more. This book can also be enjoyed as a standalone read!
Check out the Book trailer:
When Sofia falls in love, a mourning spirit begins to haunt her…
On a long holiday with her grandparents, Sofia Aspioti meets Danny Markson, a charming flirt who makes her laugh. Although she tries to keep him at arm’s length, worried that village gossip will get back to her strict family, she falls desperately in love. That’s when strange dreams about Brighton’s West Pier and a woman dressed in black begin to haunt her. Who is this grieving woman? And how is her lament related to Sofia’s feelings for Danny?
Dreaming of wealth and happiness, Laura Mayfield arrives in Brighton to pursue a new life. She falls for Christian Searle, a happy-go-lucky stagehand at the West Pier theatre, but when she’s offered a chance to perform there, her love for him is put to the test. Charles Willard, a wealthy aristocrat, is fascinated by her and pursues her relentlessly. Will Laura choose love…or money?
“Ms. Moschoudi is proving to be a skilled storyteller who takes her readers on a wonderful ride.”
~David M. Wind, author of Queen of Knights
“Reading Ms Moschoudi’s work is like visiting a friend. You are so wrapped up in the story that you don’t want it to end!”
~Julie Blaskie, Amazon reviewer
“I could feel the warm sun and sandy beaches even on a cold dreary day.”
~Helen Johnson Brumbaugh, Amazon reviewer
And now, let’s meet the author!
Welcome Effrosyni! It’s a pleasure to have you on my blog. I so enjoy the wonderful pictures you post.
Tell me, what inspired you to write The Ebb?
The book combines my love for both Corfu and Brighton. Although this is a work of fiction, the story of Sofia who adores her grandparents and their village in Corfu, brims over with autobiographical elements as I used to spend my summers in the same way as a young girl. Up to a point, the description of the locales are very close to reality as well. As for Brighton, I’ve always had a fascination towards the West Pier. I was inspired to write this story because I feel it’s a shame that this magnificent landscape no longer exists and I wanted to bring it back to life through my story. In the remaining two volumes of The Lady of the Pier trilogy, The Flow and The Storm, the story highlights many events in real life history that involve Brighton and this pier at the heart of WWII.
The Ebb is a sweet romance with a paranormal twist, and I understand you have branded the series as a paranormal romance trilogy. In what other genres do you write?
I am a paranormal romance author mostly, but I also write fantasy. I love to introduce a little magic into every novel. In my published stories so far, readers will find living and breathing Greek Gods, a haunting spirit seeking deliverance, an evil witch that kidnaps children, and a bunch of quirky guardian angels, one of them deeply in love and not having the faintest idea how to handle it. I like to mix humor with drama in all my stories too, and the paranormal/fantasy elements provide great opportunities to introduce both into my characters’ lives (*laughs*)
