I wanted to post an update on where we are with this. Everything is almost a go except the hardest part - editing and getting it up on Amazon. I found a really neat website that puts up books for you on their website apparently free too - but I want to wait until you
I'm just so excited about this. As I'm going over edits, I'm reliving the book and omg I forgot how much fun that was to write. I have more of a grasp of the characters this go around. Where there were three of us writing this, some of the characters were taken over by the other two authors and I never really truly connected to them like I have done this go around.
Then there's Ezra. I really like Ezra. Heide wrote her character but Ezra is someone I'd want to hang out with. And she has a resident ghost - Henri - who is a class act. He's lovable and quite a ladies man but he's fun and unpredictable.
Ezra's friend, Brianna, who goes on this ghost hunt with them, doesn't believe in ghosts. Gotta have a skeptic somewhere, right? Brianna is full of herself - beautiful and she knows it - but her husband has died and she's searching for answers and takes them up on an offer to go ghost hunting just for something to do.
Then there's Brooke. Heide wrote her character after the original author jumped ship on us and we had to rewrite her part and were very careful we didn't use any of this author's words so she didn't come back and sue us, lol. Tricky.
Oh there's Peggy. She's a Sunday School teacher and I believe Heide wrote her part, too.
Then there's Jerilynn, the grounded one and the one most psychic. Pam wrote this character.
And Fenella makes the sixth woman to embark on this ghost hunt. Fenella wasn't part of the original Spirit Seekers group. She ended up catching a ride with them saying she had a golden ticket too. But she is definitely a strange one.
Of course, there's Rodger Hawthorne III which is a looney tune because his wife died twenty years ago and he can't get over it. Hence, the million dollar payoff will be coming from him if the girls succeed. Once the girls arrive at the mansion, he's gone an awful lot which makes him very weird.
There's more but they're the main ones. There's going to be sequels and the girls and I are tossing around ideas but nothing is sticking yet. But I have really fallen in love with these characters even though I'm a bit biased. Especially Henri. The ghostest with the mostest. He's a mess.
