JL: Jumping right into your new release, El, where did the idea of Gabrielle in Thaw come from? Is she based on any real models/actresses?

El: Gabrielle is actually very loosely modeled on a combination of Meghan Markle (an actress and also Prince Harry’s super gorgeous girlfriend) and singer Alicia Keys. But only in terms of who I pictured when writing her… personality-wise, she’s not based on anyone!

JL: You reference both Rent and Hamilton your books. Tell us a bit about your love of musicals

whiteout elyse springerEl: Living in NYC, it’s pretty hard to escape Broadway. Even if you’re not a fan of theater, it’s everywhere.

Welcome to the blog tour spotlight stop for Between Ghosts, the newest release from author Garrett Leigh! I’m thrilled to be hosting this tour spot today, because Between Ghosts is an amazing book that absolutely floored me!

From my five-star reviewThis book was incredible. The love story was slow and winding, gorgeous and emotional. The plot is riveting, the characters organic and relatable. It’s a novel set in a war zone, so it’s often brutal and unflinching, but it’s a novel that will hook itself into your mind and refuse to let go.

Today I’m bringing you an excerpt from the novel, as well as your chance to win a $20 gift card to Riptide Publishing! All you have to do is drop a comment at the end of this post. Let me know if you’ve read any other books by Garrett, and if so what your favorite is!
