“Ghosts of Mateguas” Named “Finalist” in 2017 Book Excellence Awards

I received word yesterday that Ghosts of Mateguas, the third novel in The Mateguas Island Series, has been named a finalist 2017 Book Excellence Awards! Thus, Ghosts now joins the other two novels in the series (Mateguas Island and Return to Mateguas Island) as an award-winner.Ghosts, which continues the saga of the Andersen family, has garnered many excellent editorial reviews, including this excerpt from Self-Publishing Review:

“…a vivid and poetic read that beautifully channels modern supernatural melodrama … Watkins plays to some deeply apparent strengths in this series, and Ghosts of Mateguas is another home-run of a title. Anyone looking for something different along the lines of Shirley Jackson or Stephen King, your prayers have been answered. Ghosts of Mateguas stands as a spellbinding exemplar of modern Gothic Americana.”
