I'm gearing up to release Tawny's Ghost, last year's Utah RWA Golden Pen winner. Along with that I'm looking for other people to share real live ghost stories with me. I know the inspiration for my book came from living in a haunted house, (an old farm house, not a rundown mansion) where all of us had experiences with the ghosts. It was unnerving for some of the family, but interesting to me and quite the rush once in awhile.
Ghosts aren't scary, they're just people like you and me, but sometimes the unexpectedness is what gets you. My ghost had certain ways that he thought his house should be, and by golly don't you new people change that. Also, I'm sure often times he was lost, or he'd lost something inside the downstairs closet, and his nightly riffling through it made sleeping a bit rough.
Share your stories with me. I'm eager to hear them and include some of them in my promos for the book. Also, I'm selling necklaces like in the book. The stones (crystals) have powers to help you contact the other side. If you're interested contact me, some of them are pictured at joyspraycarbooks.com.
