The Ghostie Survival Guide

The main characters in our book, Romancing the Million $$$ Ghost, have all had an experience or two with ghosties and they'd like to share these tips with you just in case you see one and would like to know what to do.

1.  Do not scream.  Ghosties don't know why their appearances make people scream.  The best advice would be to play Cool Man Luke and strike up a conversation.  Do not show fear.

2.  Ghosties may appear human.  Okay you'll have to really read the book to find out the secret to doing that; but yes, they can appear right in front of you and you wouldn't even know it.  In fact, they can do so for 45 minutes at a time.

3.  Ghosties come in all flavors.  Get rid of the white sheet theory, ghosties can turn into anything they like but they mainly like to keep with the same features they had when they were mortals.

4.  Yes, ghosties like to have sex.  Ask Exra.  No wait, better not.  It's not for the squeamish.

5.  Ghosties have no need for material things except Coors Light.  Ask Henri about this.  But they do seem to "hang on" to materialistic objects.  Like keys (check out the book).

6.  Ghosties do not just come out at night.  They love daylight as much as any mortal.  In fact, one could be sitting  right beside you as you read this.  Or driving the taxi you're in.  Or bringing you the mail each day.  You just never know.

7.  If a ghostie is sitting right beside you, perhaps making your computer freeze or causing your G not to work on your keyboard for a certain amount of time, play dumb.  They want attention.

8.  If you find out that there's a ghostie hanging out at your house, remember they were probably there first.  Have respect for this and learn to accept it.  They may have unfinished business to do before they cross to the other side and you don't want to get in the way.  They may get angry at this.  Or, they might just be a relative who doesn't want to leave your side.  If this is the case, we suggest talking to them.  If you feel silly about doing this, remember ghosties are people too.  Or at least they once were.  They're just in a different time zone so to speak.

9.  If a ghostie wants to be your friend, consider yourself lucky.

10.  If a ghostie is there to guide you through the rest of your life so you won't mess up, consider yourself blessed.


  1. Number 4 of course !
    Who wouldn`t find ghosts having sex interesting? : )

  2. #6 - who knew that ghosts come out in daylight too????

  3. 8# They always around just because we can't see or feel them does not mean there not their.

  4. #1 - I don't think I could help but to scream. It's not really something I can control, anyway I tend to be a bit jumpy anyway so maybe the ghost won't know I notice it. I suppose having a conversation with it would make it seems as if you don't notice anything being off.


  5. Love #7 because that would TOTALLY explain why my laptop will flip through different screens unasked! LOL!

  6. #4 ghosts like sex, Who knew. ;-) Deb P

  7. #4 Please tell me this is with other ghosts??????????

  8. #4 - hell yeah! :)

    Now I'm wondering if there's a ghostie on the couch next to me right now!? *waves shyly*

  9. I like # !. Evil feeds on fear. Even if the ghostie isn't evil, fear and screaming is not "cool". The ghostie may become a good friend and helper.

  10. #10 - reminds me of a guardian angel more so than a ghostie - but hey, who's to say the two are one & the same? I'd hope it'd be my cousin or my grandma who'd be my guide - well probably my grandma more - she had tons of worldly wisdom!

  11. 10, send me a ghostie to help me through the obstacles called life!

  12. 10! I wouldn't mind a little extra help every now and then
