Is Your House Haunted?

Happy Halloween!

Last night our town celebrated Halloween. They always schedule it on a weekend night no matter when Halloween falls. Last year they caught us unaware and we didn’t have any candy for the kids everyone buses in (no joke). We live across the street from a school and the families from all over our mostly rural town come walk the few blocks around our house for their trick or treating pleasure.

So about six p.m. the dogs started to go insane and I sent G out front to hand out the gazillion little packages of Rolos, Twix, Heath Bars, M&Ms, Reeses, Three Musketeers, Milk Duds, and whatever else was hiding in that giant bucket. Forty minutes later he was back inside shutting off the lights and closing the blinds. Holy crap that was a lot of candy in a short amount of time. One piece each.

Little zombies cleaned us out. Poor G. Out of Halloween candy already and it isn’t even Halloween yet. He might deserve it though. He told me one of the kids asked if our house was haunted. Umm, yes. Haven’t I been saying that for months now?

But G quickly told him no, and the kid turned to a friend and said, “See I told you it wasn’t haunted!”.

And friend responded, “That’s what so and so said!”

If I’d been out there I would have said, “Oh yeah. Have you seen our ghost? He likes to come out at night.” Then I would have asked what rumors they’d heard and who they thought our ghost could be.

Seems our house has become the creepy one all the kids talk about. I don’t know why. It’s super cute, and we have adorable dogs that like to sit in the window. But as long as the kids don’t start breaking in and holding séances, it’s cool with me. Y’all know how much I like ghosts. Especially ones that like to invade dreams. :D

 

Book Recommendation Thursday--Haunted on Bourbon Street

Thursday morning cliché: A picture is worth a thousand words.

Yesterday my first print run arrived. I thought it was cool the day the proof got here. Now imagine how cool it was a to have a box of books show up? Pure glee.

Sadly (for me ) the box is empty, and all those books are already gone. But great news for all my readers who pre-ordered their book. Cause they all hit the mail yesterday.  Thank you friends! Needless to say, I underestimated how many of you wanted a signed copy.

I wasn’t sure if I should highlight my own book on Book recommendation Thursday, but then I said to myself, “Hello! You liked it enough to write it, right?” Well, yeah. And I really wanted to show you the box-o-books!

If you haven’t ordered it yet, all the retail links are to the right hand side of the page. If you want to order a signed copy go here. It will be a few weeks however, because I have to wait for the next print run to arrive.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me with this adventure. It really is totally cool, even when my best friend is embarrassing me because she’s telling everyone at the bar and dinner all about how I wrote a book.  :)

Blurb:

Jade loves her new apartment  ̶ until a ghost joins her in the shower.

When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn’t count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and having feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord.

Being an empath has never been easy on Jade’s relationships. It’s no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade, to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it’s up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her. Except she’ll need Kane’s help—and he’s betrayed her with a secret of his own—to do it. Can she find a way to trust him and herself before Pyper is lost?
