Ghosts & a Giveaway!

I have talked about my fascination with ghosts and my personal experiences with them. I’m not sure why I love ghosts and ghost stories, but I know I’m not the only one. Otherwise there wouldn’t be so many movies and TV series about ghosts. Just look at the number of reality ghost hunting and paranormal investigating TV series. There’s Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, Ghost Mine and Ghost Asylum, just to name a few. I don’t usually watch those because then I’d never be able to be alone in my house again.

I tend to watch the fictional TV series like The Ghost Whisperer, which I love, and still watch it when it’s on. I also watch Ghostbusters whenever it’s on.I recently shared my love of the movie Ghost, still one of my all time favorites. But I recently started watching The InBetween, a new series on NBC. This might become one of my favorites. It’s about a young woman, much like Riley, who assists the dead with their unresolved problems and helps detectives solve murder cases. Watch the trailer HERE.

In a lot of ways, the character in The InBetween, Cassie Bedford, reminds me of an older Riley.  They deal with some of the same things, needy spirits, and sometimes gruesome crimes.  Neither of them are super heroes, they are ordinary females with extraordinary gifts.  They get scared, they have other issues weighing on their minds, but their determination to help the dead is admirable and courageous.  I can’t wait for you see Riley in action in this last book in the series.

The countdown for the release of Three Heartbeats Away has started. Only two weeks from today, Three Heartbeats Away will be out. So, if you want to enter my preorder contest, you have to before June 18th. Just preorder Three Heartbeats Away at Amazon,  Barnes & Noble or Kobo, and send a screen shot or copy of the receipt to me at

Then you’ll be entered to win this cool tote filled with awesome swag (promo stuff). But please note, Three Heartbeats Away is up for preorder as an ebook only. However, on release day it will also be available in paperback.

Now, I want to be fair to my fans who are ordering the print copy.  So, if you send me a screen shot, copy of the receipt of your order, or even a photo of you with your book to,  I’ll hold another contest.  I’ll give away a second tote with all the goodies in it.  I’ll announce the winner on June 25th.

(Sorry but both giveaways are limited to U.S. residents.)


I’ll give away a t-shirt and an ebook of either One Foot in the Grave or Two Feet Under (your choice)to one person who leaves a comment telling me about their favorite TV show. It doesn’t even have to be about ghosts. If you are reading this on Goodreads, you’ll have to pop over to…… to enter to win. (Sorry, but this giveaway is also only for U.S. residents.)


The winner of last week’s giveaway is Deborah Elkins. Congratulations! Please email me at with your mailing address and your t-shirt size.

  1. My current favorite TV show ia The In-between. I did not realize The Mortician Daughter was in paperback. I have read them all on my Kindle, now I have to get the paperback!!!

  2. I’m not much of a TV watcher, but I loved Teen Wolf while it was on. Supernatural dramas are my absolute favorite, especially when they involve werewolves or shapeshifters.

    I can’t wait for Three Heartbeats Away! So close!

  3. My favorite tv show would have to be a toss-up between Shadowhunters, Legacies, and Riverdale. Thanks for the great giveaway!! 😀

  4. Ooo, this is a hard one! I’ve been a long time fan of Supernatural but I also DVR Shadowhunters too. I also like Outlander as well. I love TV shows that have books attached! I haven’t watched a Discovery of Witches but that’s my next book I’m reading. The Dead Files are also a good TV show….Amy is amazing. She has Riley’s abilities in real life!

  5. Ghost whisper. I seen the wholes series and now i rewatch on hulu. I also like the dead zone. I watch ghost adventures. I wanna know if they are for real. I believe in ghosts and spirits(good and bad ones) but i just dont know about ghost adventures.

  6. My absolute favorite tv show is Ghost Hunters!! I was so excited to hear that it was coming back. I think I have seen just about every episode. I like the fact that they don’t just think everything is paranormal, they really try to debunk everything! I could watch this show everyday for hours!!!
