The Great Destruction: A Sneaking Suspicion

We are proud to bring you a very special Partners in ParanormYA miniseries. The Great Destruction was created for your viewing pleasure, and will run all week in honor of Angela’s and Gwen’s new book releases.

And now, for Episode V: A Sneaking Suspicion


Indigo: *Examines the slime* Yes, I think you’re right, Abby. It does have a rather disgusting familiarity to it, doesn’t it?

Abby:  Yes. Yes it does.

Angela: What?! What is it? Poison? 

Gwen:  No, no. It has to be something more volatile. Whatever left this *she stretches the clear substance between her hands* stuff behind, must be really scary…

Angela:  The creature from the black lagoon?

Indigo:  Nope, nothing like that. Sorry, but it’s…

Abby:  …dog slobber.

*Indigo snatches a feather floating in front of her face*

Indigo:  And if I’m not mistaken, there’s a little ghostie I know who loves to wear his fake angel wings.

Abby:  Let me guess. He likes candy--which he shares with the ghost dog, while watching the telly. *she picks up the remote and turns the television off*

Indigo: Chance. The ghost dog is named Chance and he is a very slobbery bulldog.

*Angela and Gwen share embarrassed glances*

Angela:  Well, it could have been something more…

Gwen:  Totally…

The Great Destruction: Don't Freak On Me Now

We are proud to bring you a very special Partners in ParanormYA miniseries. The Great Destruction was created for your viewing pleasure, and will run all week in honor of Angela’s and Gwen’s new book releases.

And now, for Episode IV: Don’t Freak On Me Now


*hysterical giggling continues as Indigo and Abby cling to each other, snorting and pointing at Gwen and Angela trying to get off the floor. Gwen crawls over to the sofa on slippery hands and knees.*

Gwen:  Over here Angela. We’ll use the couch.

*Angela follows, mostly on hands and knees, but sometimes slithering. The ladies pull themselves onto the sofa. Gwen slaps at a feather that floats in front of her face.*

Angela: I’m glad you two find this funny. I certainly don’t. Our PIP headquarters is haunted!

Indigo:  Well of course it is! Angela, this place is stock full of all the beings you and Gwen have created. Take Franny, for instance. She’s a ghost. And she’s not scary and she doesn’t fling ectoplasm at anybody.

Abby:  Besides, *rubs the slimy substance between her fingers and studies it closely* this stuff looks kind of familiar. I have a sneaking suspicion…


Will they get to the bottom of the slime? Stay tuned for the fifth and final episode of The Great Destruction: A Sneaking Suspicion, tomorrow, when you will also find links for Friday’s tour stops.

The Great Destruction: What the Ectoplasm is That?

We are proud to bring you a very special Partners in ParanormYA miniseries. The Great Destruction was created for your viewing pleasure, and will run all week in honor of Angela’s and Gwen’s new book releases.

And now, for Episode III: What the Ectoplasm is That?


*Gwen, Abby and Indigo stand paralyzed with a clear, slimy substance dripping down their faces and clothing. Angela is attempting, with little success, to pick herself up off the floor*

Gwen: Oh. Here, Angela. Let me help. *She extends her hand. Angela grasps it and Gwen pulls…and slips down with a thunk next to Angela*

Abby: *snort* Oh. Uh. Sorry. It’s completely not funny.

Indigo: No. *she shakes her head* Completely *snort* not *snort* funny.

*The girls burst into laughter*

*Angela and Gwen lay on their backs, staring at the ceiling*

Angela to Gwen: Any idea what this stuff is?

*background giggling continues*

Gwen to Angela: Well, it sort of looks like Ectoplasm. You know, that stuff that spirits sometimes fling at living people because…well, I don’t know why. They just do.

Angela: *goes wild-eyed* You tryin’ to tell me we have some random ghosts here flinging *raises her dripping hand* slime around? *she rolls over* Help me up. Help me up, Gwen. We got to get the freak out of here…”


Will the ladies of PIP ever get off the floor? Stay tuned for episode IV of The Great Destruction: Don’t Freak On Me Now, tomorrow, when you will also find links for Thursday’s tour stops.

The Great Destruction: The Unforgiven

We are proud to bring you a very special Partners in ParanormYA miniseries. The Great Destruction was created for your viewing pleasure, and will run all week in honor of Angela’s and Gwen’s new book releases.

 And now for episode II: The Unforgiven


Indigo: Now, Angela. You have to believe us. We totally learned our lesson the last time we threw an unauthorized party.

Abby:  Seriously. How stupid would we be to leave a mess this big? *Indigo throws her meaningful look* Oh. Um. I mean, of course we wouldn’t leave a mess this big because we wouldn’t have another secret party, so, uh, no party, no mess. Right?

*Angela’s eyes are still narrowed in disbelief, but she’s willing to listen*

Gwen: No, the girls are way smarter than that now.

Indigo, in a tone of surprise: Thank you, Gwen.

Gwen: I mean, if they drank your Wild Cherry Pepsi, they’d totally replace it.

*Abby’s face turns indignant. She opens her mouth to reply, when she catches another meaningful look from Indigo*

Angela:  *reluctantly* Well, all right, then. I guess maybe you wouldn’t do that again. But if not you two, then who?

*Angela starts to wade back through the mess, when, slip, zip, slide, her feet zoom out from under her. She lands on her backside, feet flailing in the air. Something slimy drips from her shoes. She freaks and kicks her feet…*


What the heck landed Angela on her backside? Stay tuned for episode III of The Great Destruction: What the Ectoplasm is That?, tomorrow, when you will also find links for Wednesday’s tour stops.

The Great Destruction: Who Killed the WCP?

We are proud to bring you a very special Partners in ParanormYA miniseries. The Great Destruction was created for your viewing pleasure, and will run all week in honor of Angela’s and Gwen’s new book releases.

And now, episode I: Who Killed The WCP?


Angela unlocks the door at PIP headquarters and steps over the threshold. She stops in her tracks, causing Gwen to run into her back…

Gwen: Oof.

Angela: Oh. My. Word.

*Gwen, Abby and Indigo scramble to peek around her*

Gwen: *gasps* Oh. My. Word.

Abby: *wading into the room* Yeah, I think we got that part covered, Gwen.

Indigo: What in heaven’s name happened here?

*Candy wrappers and empty chip bags littered the carpet. Clothing was scattered across the floor. Boxes of Angela’s and Gwen’s new releases had been opened and the books strewn across the living room. Stray kernels of white fluffy popcorn crunched beneath their feet as they waded further into the room. Gwen swats at a flying feather.*

Angela: Someone had a party. *she narrows her eyes at Abby and Indigo* Or a couple of someone’s had a party.

*The girls start to deny their involvement, when…*

Gwen: Look!  *points to a corner next to the couch*

Angela: *Makes her way wide-eyed over to the corner, then stoops to pick something up. Slowly she turns. An empty can of her beloved Wild Cherry Pepsi lay in her hand. A dozen others, crushed and left for dead in the corner...*


Who would dare do such a thing? Stay tuned for episode II of The Great Destruction: The Unforgiven, tomorrow, when you will also find links for Tuesday’s tour stops.

Pssst! Partners in ParanormYA Announce Tour!

As a lot of you know, the PIPs are about to launch another book tour, starting next week. It’s just a quick book blitz this time, only four days. And yet, we have four to five stops per day. Never fear, though, because we managed to borrow a cloning machine from a certain awesome blogger we know…but I digress.

This tour will feature the sequels to our last books, Neverlove and Givin’ Up The Ghost.
They All Fall Down and A Guilty Ghost Surprised have the same casts of lovable characters (and some, not so much) as the last tour. And of course, a lot of cross-over action will be going on between the books, characters and authors on the tour.

We’ll be posting the links with scheduled stops here every day. If you follow along, you’ll notice themes, such as radio interviews and game shows.
There will be a rafflecopter giveaway, too!

Plus, right here on this very blog will be a mystery to solve…
We hope you return to the scene of the crime, er, blog opera, no wait...just come back, okay?

Youth in Sneak Mode


Hey! Abby and Indigo here. We got a little secret for you.

Indgo: Actually, it's just Abby.

Abby: We agreed to do this together.

Indigo: I just - I can't. What if Angela and Gwen find out?

Abby: The readers have to know. Gwen and Angela could have left well enough alone but they didn't. I'm not trying to say something bad, not really, but they need to know that Gwen and Angela have some cruel imaginations putting us through so much.

Indigo: I think that's called life, Abby. I'm so going to hell for sneaking like this.

Abby: You're not going to hell but, shhhh! I hear someone coming. We better go!

An Answer and Covers Revealed...PIP Style

Last week you were challenged to "Name that Movie." Well, if you guessed The Exorcist, then you were RIGHT. Go here to check out more on the real life story behind the movie.


Now to the covers. *cue drumroll*

We're so proud to reveal the follow up stories to Givin' Up the Ghost and Neverlove


Add to Goodreads

An Angel Among Us
Paranormal happenings at the Eady household are the norm. Recently, things have become downright peculiar. Childish giggles at odd hours of the night lead Indigo Eady to her little cousin, Bryan, a guileless cherub spirit, complete with Spider Man pajamas and a set of faux angel wings. The problem is that Bryan died nearly three years ago in a hit and run that killed him and his mum. The driver was never found.  Now the gang must solve the mystery of his death in order to send him back to heaven.  But where to start when the trail is three years cold?
Indigo Eady
Indigo Eady is not clumsy. At least, that’s what she keeps telling everyone. Can she help that the overactive spirit community of Sabrina Shores causes her psychic abilities to short-circuit? It’s unfortunate that her cute friend Badger is often on the receiving end of her mishaps. At times, she is positively hazardous to his health. Even so, sparks fly in more than one direction.

THEY ALL FALL DOWN by Angela Brown
Add to Goodreads

Abby and Basil: New love reaches new heights as they finally give in to their lust and desire for each other.

Q: Consumed by the Devourer within and his base need to claim Abby as his own.

The crave: What it all boils down to. A crave for souls. A crave to keep love intact beyond betrayals. A crave for a second chance. A crave for power and The Fall of mankind.

“Love can conquer all” is put to the test and salvation may be impossible when it’s “ashes, ashes…they all fall down.”

About Gwen
Gwen Gardner is a native Californian living in sunny San Diego, where her love of reading and writing led to a BA in English literature. Life is now complete with her husband, two dogs and a daily call from her daughter.

Since ghosts feature prominently in her young adult Indigo Eady Paranormal “Cozy” Mystery series, she has a secret desire to meet one face to face - but will run screaming for the hills if she ever does. Gwen adores travel and experiencing the cultures and foods of different countries. She is always up for an adventure and anything involving chocolate - not necessarily in that order.

About Angela
Angela is a lover of Wild Cherry Pepsi and chocolate/chocolate covered delicious-ness. Steampunk, fantasy and paranormal to contemporary - mostly young adult - fill her growing library of books. Mother to a rambunctious darling girl aptly nicknamed Chipmunk, life stays busy. Her favorite quote keeps her moving: "You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result." ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Just Say NO to Pea Soup

Okay, so pea soup may not be so bad. I haven't tried it personally, but thanks to one particular movie, I'm not interested in EVER giving it a chance.

What movie would that be? You're here with the Partners in ParanormYA so you know it's not a contemporary tale of love that turned me completely OFF to something that could actually be tasty.

Let's have some fun and see who can come up with the title. Here are a few hints:
 - a supernatural horror movie from the early 1970's
 - a movie based on a novel that was in turn inspired by a true story
 - the movie starred a girl but the real life story that inspired the novel centers on events surrounding a boy

Just thinking about that movie makes me want to sprinkle holy water on every inch of my home then take a shower in it for safe measure...oh, and spray Chipmunk down with holy water as well *shivers*

So can you guess?

Ghostly Communications

Whenever something I consider paranormal happens, it always brings back to me that the reality we experience every day isn't all there is. There's more. Soooo much more.

While at work on Monday, someone's cell phone went off and a voice echoed throughout the office that, "Your father is trying to reach you." I can tell you, it gave me pause, because I knew the father of this person to be deceased. My heart quickened for just a flash...

But upon further research, it wasn't that person's phone.

Still, my search for the phone prompted giggles and another story that goes something like this:

My friend was driving a truck and had to make a split second decision; to plow into a school bus full of children or drive off a bridge into an abyss. He drove off the bridge and died. An hour later his wife received a text from him that he was all right. She didn't even know he was dead yet...

Yeah, these are definitely episodes waiting to happen in one of my books. I have a technology-loving seventeenth century wench as a secondary character. I'm pretty sure I'll be using something like that in my novella tentatively entitled The Power of Three in which this character features pretty prominently.

Have you ever experienced the paranormal?
Where do you get your story ideas from?

The Ladies Return

The ladies of PIP are back! *Fist pump to my partner-in-crime, Gwen Gardner*

I'm so happy to share this HOT NEW RELEASE for my most recent work, ATONE, a NEO Chronicles: Character Revealed novella.

Without further ado, here it is:
Thank you for the wonderful cover, Heather McCorkle @ CP Design!!!
What harm can come from a kiss?

Caine Fordham knows the danger all too well.

As the Kill Circuit’s top lady-killer, business is good. Yet Caine knows the life of an assassin isn’t meant to last forever, just as love is impossible for him. Who could love a man with poison lacing his veins and a kiss that kills?

When Caine decides to take one last job, deal out one last kiss, he discovers there’s more to life than death, and more to love than pain.


This is the second installment in my NEO Chronicles: Characters Revealed series. Available now at Amazon US and other online outlets by Friday, it will make a nice slice of reading for a lunch break or for a quick read during the train/trolley/car pool work commute (ummm...if you're driving, No Reading While Driving lol!!)

Here's a little excerpt. You'll see there's a bit of a difference in the description of the character and the model for the cover, but the cover - as a whole - embodies the dark mystery that is Caine Fordham.

Caine stood up slowly, smirking to conceal how much her questions bothered him. Living a hundred years as a walking wasteland didn’t leave him many career options.

With a long, lean body, a sun-kissed tan (genetics, not from being outdoors) and square jawline, his targets often mistook him for a male model. “The brooding type,” is what he’d heard many times. If his chest, stomach and back didn’t resemble black lace from the poisons that called his body home, male model could work. He wore his black silky mane cut short at the nape. Longer curls in the front veiled his eyes, making him even more mysterious, or so women told him. A definite plus when luring his prey.

Bearing the kiss of death didn’t fit any job descriptions…with one exception.


And he had a spotless record with the Kill Circuit.

I'll admit, I do love a man with a kiss that makes me feel like I've died and gone to heaven...just not one that will do it literally lol!!!

Question: When it comes to book covers, do you prefer cover models, animation or perhaps symbolism?

*Note - we'll get back to the regular Thursday posts starting next week :-)*

April A to Z, B for Brief Break

Hello! Hola! Ni Hao and Aloha!

The Partners in ParanormYA have been up to plenty of mischief...

Frailties of the Bond released in the last week as just an example.

The month of April will be an extra busy time around the blogosphere. Bloggers from east, west, north and south will be participating in the A to Z blogging challenge. Although PIP Angela Brown will be cave-bound working on the sequel to Neverlove, follow up NEO Chronicles projects, and a sekrit MG project that may no be so sekrit if she keeps talking about it, PIP Gwen Gardner will be participating in the A to Z blogging challenge. Make sure to stop by their blogs to enjoy what Gwen has in store for A to Z and keep up with Angela to see what nonsense - erm - activities she's up to.

PIP's blog will go on a brief break for the month of April. But we'll be back!!

Are you participating in A to Z? If so, have a theme to share?

Can You Do The Splits?

And the battle continues!
Paper Book
Thank you Debbie Ohi

If I could draw, I'd illustrate 20K feet in the air and the Ebook battery dies. That'd be one more round for the paperback.
I'm thinking the paperback wins this round...
I know the paperback is hating on the ebook, but ebook does have good qualities. Like 200 books you can carry around with you every day. Not only that, but a variety of reading material so you can read whatever you're in the mood for.
What do you think?
Do you prefer paperback or ebook?

Before NEO...

Network of
Extraordinaires &

A group of heroes and heroines living life quietly, day by day, training and such, as needed.

Until they are needed. Which can happen when malcontent humans or jealous gods and godesses decide to take their irritation out on the world. Or say...someone decides it's time for the world to face a reboot of mankind.

Before NEO, many of the members were regular teens - okay, not so regular. But saving mankind wasn't the first thing on their mind.

They loved. They hurt. And they dealt with the obstacles life threw their way.
FRAILTIES OF THE BOND is a story of one such teen couple

Two teens...
Two lies...
Their paths collide when...
One bite changes a life.

After a hiking trip gone wrong, sixteen-year-old Luca should have been dead. Since then, he’s drifted from one school day to the next, annoyed by the looks of suspicion. When a vampire attack claimed his mother and forced his first shift into animal form, Luca set out for Texas, vengeance bound, only to discover so much more when Aimee crossed his path.

Flesh-born of vampire parents sixteen years ago, Aimee shouldn’t exist. Magic, though, made dreams come true for an undead couple desperate for a child all their own. But this magic came with a price, a cost Aimee discovered after one forbidden bite.

Orbs and the Paranormal

What do you know about orbs? 

You know, those little balls of light that show up in your photos? They have a scene in my WiP, a novella called Second Death. What would you think, if you were walking through the cemetery at night (it could happen!) and all of a sudden these little balls of light, called orbs, show up and start swirling around you? What if they were hypnotic? What if....I'll stop there. I don't want to give away the scene yet because it plays an import role in Second Death. But you can see that the paranormal fiction writer can go in so many directions with this, especially if you write about ghosts, as I do.

Here's what some are saying about orbs.

Some claim orbs are the souls of spirits or ghosts. After death, these souls stay on because they're bound to their previous lives for some reason, almost like an obsession-they can't let go or have unfinished business. The premise is that they travel as an orb to conserve energy in their natural forms. They're not as fully developed as ghosts. Ghost hunters actually go out looking for orbs to photograph them - they are quite photogenic.

Scientists say they are particles of dust or water on the lense of your camera. Or maybe light reflecting off gnats or bugs in the air. But what about those orbs seen over swamps, bogs or marshes with the naked eye? What about in the winter time when gnats and bugs aren't flying around?

What do I think?

I have no idea what to think. I believe in ghosts and the afterlife. Why not? Too many people have experienced something supernatural to discount it, including me.

Anyway, at Christmastime I took a photo of my dogs. And so I pulled the photo out to check for orbs. Check it out:

There are at least a couple of orbs...

What do you think?
Do you believe in the supernatural?
Do orbs show up on your photos?

Love, ParanormYA

Paranormal Mutations and Other Such Fancies

Hello ParanormYA peeps! Since I know you guys are the ParanormYA experts, I want to run my new novella series by you. I'm having doubts and think you can help. If you already saw my IWSG post, then this is pretty much the same.

My new novella series (An Indigo Eady Afterlife novella) is an off-shoot of my first series, the first book being Givin' Up The Ghost. My protag, Indigo, is a teenage ghost whispering psychic who can see and speak to ghosts, which is instrumental in solving the murder of her friend's dad.

My new novella series was actually inspired by the second book in the original series, A Guilty Ghost Surprised (not yet published). There is a scene where Indigo has a conversation with Franny, a Victorian ghost madam (you may remember Franny from our blog tour, where she appears on a talk show with Father Quanon from Angela Brown's Neverlove  HERE and also stages a fashion intervention HERE). Franny reveals to Indigo that there is a whole spirit community in Sabrina Shores (mostly Victorian) that basically is parallel to the living world. They have community meetings, court each other, and socialize as if they're still alive. Franny hints that some of the creatures in the afterlife may not have actually been...human. And of course trouble was brewing on the horizon.

So Second Death, the off-shoot, is...more fanciful, to say the least. It picks up from the conversation between Indigo and Franny in AGGS about the overactive spirit community in Sabrina Shores and takes it a bit over the top. Indigo is basically drafted onto the Missing Paranormals Committee by a ghostly high court judge during court proceedings of the highly active spirit world which takes place in an old dilapidated courthouse. She must serve on the committee alongside other spirits to investigate what happened to the missing spirits/ghosts/paranormal creatures.

The new Afterlife series will also introduce other such afterlife characters that have been mutated by what they had become in previous lives. Add spirits, ghosts, these other paranormal creatures and mix it with sometimes bizarre paranormal happenings, and you get....something more over the top than the original series. But I think it still encompasses the light paranormal characteristics of my first series, and is, in my opinion, just like I said - more fanciful.

The difference between the two series is that Indigo becomes much more active in the spirit world, rather on the periphery, in Second Death. AND there are some pretty off the wall creatures and happenings.

I worry that it may be too over the top and wonder whether it will reflect on my original series in any way because I'm using some of the same characters.

What do you think?

Any thoughts on what's too much?

Will it reflect on my original series?

Falling Apart or Into Place

Writing and publishing, like life, can often be compared to a big box of jigsaw puzzle pieces.
It's easy to form the lower and upper edges along with the sides by finding the familiar, sticking to what's simpler to identify. With publishing, that often meant trying to follow the sage advice of others with more experience and knowledge, those who'd flourished at the time where only an agent got you where you wanted to be. When guidelines were followed and stuck to. Not so much nowadays. Forming the picture within, the final outcome, can take a lot of trial and error. This includes trying to fit pieces where they're not the best fit.

I tried that with Neverlove. I attempted to fit it into a pitch contest early last year. Seemed like the right thing to do, try and get the attention of a growing small press. It got no interest at all. None. No surprise since I have to admit it wasn't a 100% whole-hearted effort. Instead of being totally bombed about it, I took it as the beginning of a revival. I'd been considering self-publishing for a while. At the same time, I'd gotten back some AWESOME feedback on improving Neverlove and got into some great conversations with Gwen Gardner about self-publishing our novels and promoting them at the same time.


Far from falling apart, the puzzle pieces were falling into place, not forced or fitted into something someone else may have thought it would/should belong.

Have you ever experienced something where things seemed not to work but in actuality, they were setting the stepping stones for the path meant for you?

Never Say No To The Grim Reaper

Thank you Debbie Ohi!

I really think I'd be more circumspect about insulting the Grim Reaper. I'd be that guy sweating next to him, agreeing with everything he says and buying him another one.

How about you?

Spotted: PIP Hoppers and Next Big Thing

Last episode, Gwen and I were taking off down a ginnel - tunnel - for a little ghost hunting. However, I think we made a left when we should have made a right. Or I had the map turned sideways instead of straight side up. Either way, we found ourselves at a magnificent Facebook spot called Untethered Realms. There, we joined with a few other Indie authors to share and support one another. If you haven't already, please stop here and "Like" us :-)

From there, we had to draw the hunt to a close. Good thing we did, too. Piles of paper poured through the door when we returned to PIP HQ.
Gwen handed me her gear and immediately activated her super powers; organizing, collating, grouping, compiling, and turning the place back into a respectable version of chaos. I found my Wild Cherry Pepsis remained unharmed so I was great.

Now, I can't say I'm just excited. I'm excited, thrilled, ecstatic, through-the-roof, dancing-a-jig and boot-scootin' happy to remind everyone of the Next Big Thing my PIP, Gwen, is doing.

It's the Indies 4 Hire Event at FB. Get the deets and more by going here to check it out and join in the fun to come. Starts January 21st. WOOT!

Now, where has entering a dark and creepy ginnel taken you? For us, it was certainly an interwebz adventure :-)

PiPs Disappear on Ghosthunt

December 20th, 2012
A dark alley behind the Blind Badger,
a medieval pub in Sabrina Shores, England

Gwen: It must be here.

Angela: I don't know why I let you talk me into these things, Gwen. What in heaven's name are we doing in this dark fragging alley at this time of night?

Gwen: It's called a ginnel. And I told you. We're looking for signs of paranormal activity.

Angela: Well, can't we look for it inside where it's warmer? 

Gwen: No. This is where Indigo said she last saw the soul collector.

Angela: Say what?!


Have you seen these Ghost Hunters?

Angela Brown and Gwen Gardner have been missing for two weeks. No blog posts or updated paranormal news. Nothing is missing from PIP Headquarters, except their ghostfinding magnifying glasses. 

Banner by Tara Tyler

They were last seen entering a dark alley on December 20th on a routine Ghost Hunt. No one has seen them since.

The above photo was taken on the night of their disappearance. Gwen is on the left, with Angela to her right. The dude on the far right? You don't really see him.

Or do you?

Were you at the Blind Badger on the 20th?
Did you see Gwen and Angela?
What were they doing?
Do you have an alibi?
