SPOOK-A-LICIOUS: WHERE BOO-KS DEVOUR YOU: BLOG HOP TOUR (Oct 17-24)


It's Minnie again. Welcome to the Spook-a-licious: Where the Boo-ks Devour You: Blog Hop Tour.

I'm the lady with the haunted B & B, the Lilac Bower. The above is NOT a picture of it. Well, my B & B is not really haunted. I'm advertising that it is to drum up some business.  So far I'm getting a lot of interest on my YouTube video, but only a couple people have come to stay. 



And they are causing me problems.

The first guests are Elmer and Barbara Derecho--and you won't believe this: they are paranormal investigators, yeah, actual ghost hunters. They say if they can document the paranormal activity at the Bower, they will include it on their haunted places register. Can you say "free advertising"? I can. 

The obvious problem is that the Bower is not actually haunted, and I don't think my creepy sounds CD is going to fool their equipment.  They could expose me as a fraud and I really need the business, especially after  all the plumbing problems I've been having. (Ahem. Not me personally, the B & B. Sheesh!)
 
The other guest is Gordon Anderson. Sigh. There's not enough room here to talk about the problems he creates. You would need a whole book to do that. (Hey, Joselyn, did you see what I did there? )  Let's just say I slammed the door in his face as soon as I saw him on my doorstep. 

Suffice to say, I need more guests.  Hope you can drop by for some coffee or tea and some Halloween cookies.

Oh, I almost forgot.  (That Gordon, he gets me all turned around. I wish he'd go back to whatever prairie dog hill he crawled out of.) THERE'S A CONTEST!!! 


Leave a comment here or send an email to jvaughn@joselynvaughn.com with your email address for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Amazon or a PDF copy of Hauntings of the Heart when it comes out (which I hear is an absolutely fabulous story. ;-) )


And look here's the cover...


To see how my project is going, you can friend Joselyn on Facebook or follow her on Twitter. I'm hoping for lots of good news. 

You can read about some of my other adventures in CEOs Don’t Cry and Sucker for a Hot Rod.    Joselyn's books are available at Amazon, Barnes and NobleAstraea PressAll Romance ebooks, and Bookstrand

  15. @desitheblonde-I'm not sure I'm brave enough to go to actual haunted house. Supposedly one down the street is and that's close enough for me. :-)

    BTW, I have some swag left over from a book fair this weekend, if you are interested email me your snail mail address at jvaughn@joselynvaughn.com and I'll send you some.

    Have a great night!
