Cover Release for The Haunting of William Gray


I am so excited to be able to share the cover for my second novel with The Wild Rose PressThe Haunting of William Gray!

Participating in the progress of publishing a novel can be daunting at times, but nothing is more rewarding than seeing an end result we are all pleased with.

Covers set the tone and give the readers an impression of what lies just beyond.  They can delight an author or give us angst. Beyond the cover awaits friendship, love, betrayal, greed, death, and destruction in a beautiful southern coastal town with deep roots in American history.

Benevolent spirit or vengeful ghost–that is what Madeline Waters and William Gray must discover about the apparition haunting Gray Estate in The Haunting of William Gray.”

Rae Monet is the cover artist for both my published novels and has done a great job.  A million thanks to her.

So, readers, what do you think?

The Haunting of William Gray will be available for pre-sale in October and worldwide release is November 11, 2015.

Renee Johnson is the author of Acquisition, and The Haunting of William Gray.  She is currently working on a Young Adult novel, while editing a suspense novel which has international flair–an homage to her love of travel and foreign food.  She lives on a farm in North Carolina with her husband, Tony Johnson, and one very spoiled German shepherd named Gretel.
