Here it is, almost Halloween and I haven't done a single Halloweenish post. I LOVE Halloween! My book is based on Halloween! But like every other holiday, it just sneaks up on me. So, today's teasers are all ghost stories. Do you recognise any of them?
1) Kendall Moorehead can't sleep. Not a wink.
Ever since her family moved from Chicago to the small town of Radison, Georgia, Kendall hasn't gotten a decent nights 's sleep. It's just too freaking quiet.
To remedy the situation, Kendall's father brings home a white-noise machine. The soothing sound of static should help Kendall drift off to la-la land.
But what Kendall hears is anything but relaxing: A voice comes through the machine. A voice? Has Kendall completely lost her mind? Or is she waking up to a world she never knew existed?
2) I don't believe in ghosts.
Unfortunately, they believe in me...
Let me set the record straight. My name is Charlotte Silver and I'm not one of those paranormal-obsessed freaks you see on TV...no, those would be my parents, who have their own ghost-hunting reality show. And while I get roped into the behind-the-scenes work, it turns out that I haven't gone unnoticed. Something happened on my parents' research trip in Charleston - and now I'm being stalked by some truly frightening other beings. Trying to fit into a new school and keeping my parents' creepy occupation a secret from my friends - and potential boyfriends - is hard enough without having angry spirits whispering in my ear. All I ever wanted was to be normal, but with the ghosts of my past and present colliding, now I just want to make it out of high school alive...
3) Jack is used to danger. His asthma has nearly killed him more than once. But his new home has a danger he's never known before - the spirits of the dead.
They can't breathe. But in Jack's house, they can chase, hide, scream.
Only Jack can see them. Only he can hear them. And only he can learn their secrets in time to save his mother - and himself...
Do you recognise any of these? Care to take a guess?
