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

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.”

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?
