You know you're a ghost hunter when...

I saw this on a Facebook page a few minutes ago and just had to share.  Is that cute or what?  And so appropriate for this blog since the main characters are - GHOST HUNTERS.  The book's concept is a group of ordinary women embark on a ghost hunt for a million dollars but what many people might not realize is that the very idea behind this book came from a group of women who met online to discuss the paranormal of which all of us - myself, Pam and Heide - actually did.  We can't really call ourselves ghost hunters but we find the paranormal so interesting - just what if there was proof that ghosts did indeed exist?

Just think - what if you could bring back family members even for just a fleeting moment?  What if you could ask them things you never got a chance to while they were still alive?  What if they were your key to finding out things you could never find out because they were the only ones who knew? 

Some people might think this is morbid but I think they've been watching too many movies.  It's like aliens.  Most of us believe in aliens, right?  Of course the thought of actual seeing one gives you the heebie jeebies just thinking about it, but what if we could get over that fear and learn to make friends with them?  My goodness what we could learn from them, eh?

Same with ghosties.

Anyway, in the book (which I'll give you the update of the book in just a minute), this group of women not only are doing something they enjoy (ghost busting) but they are to be rewarded as well.  That's if they can prove without a doubt that ghosts exist. Are they able to do it?  You'll have to read the book to find out.  I'm such a tease, aren't I?

Back to the book's progress, it's still in the editing stage but we need to move faster.  The cover reveal will start the first week of September and it feels like it's right around the corner.  We have about 60 bloggers lined up for that.

The tour itself starts on October 1 and we'll be having lots of prizes and giveaways along the way.  So far, we've got over 50 bloggers lined up and by the time it's finished, we'll probably have well over 100.  If you're interested in being a host, all you have to do is have an updated blog, love books and be willing to review our book, interview either one of us, have us write a guest post for you or spotlight us and you're in!  Email Dorothy at thewriterslife(at) if you would like to participate - it's going to be fun!

Of course, there's the Facebook party with Release Day Diva on October 31 and maybe a radio show or two so we've got lots of fun plans ahead, but we better get busy and get this book out there!
