This is a rather unusual post. Actually, it’s a real call for action (I’ve always wanted to say that!). The thing is, I loved Claire’s book (Civil Hearts) I’m happy to lend her a hand (no, asking for votes in contests is not going to become a regular thing, but this is how much I loved her stories).
Civil Hearts meant something to me. I know first hand how it is to live with an invisible illness (the anger, the frustration because people don’t see anything wrong with you even when maybe there’s so much going on that day, how it touches my family and so on). The fact that Claire wrote about an illness (something she often does in her books) is, per se, already great because it gives us a happy ending. How she gave the illness to the Hero of the story, (usually the strong, physically fit, supercool alpha) it makes it even better.
Now another of her stories is nominated for an award and it would be amazing if you could give her a hand. She and the story deserve it!
Now I’ll give the mic to Claire so she can explain a little better about the contest.

An addiction counselor and a security guard struggle to free a little girl and her father, two lost spirits trapped inside an abandoned mental asylum.
Addiction counselor Laura Horton returns from college to move in with an old friend and start her career. But her homecoming is jarring. Her friend moves out, leaving Laura alone with the gorgeous but intimidating ex-boyfriend—in a house that snugs up to an ancient graveyard.
Officer Miller Stanford is a man with a shattered past. His alcoholic dad destroyed their family, a weakness Miller is terrified will consume him too. The last thing he needs is a sexy, blonde addiction counselor watching his every move. When he begins to see specters in the dark, he starts questioning his own stability.
But Laura sees her too—a pathetic child-spirit searching for her father. Then Laura starts digging into old asylum records . . . Can Miller and Laura uncover the secrets of Talcott Hall without jeopardizing their love—and lives—in the process?
