Cover Reveal for THE GHOST CHRONICLES 2 and a Giveaway!

Big news to share! I’m revealing the cover today for THE GHOST CHRONICLES 2

at the RT Convention in Atlanta!

First, here’s the back cover blurb about the book:

What’s there to fear if you’re already dead?
Plenty.
Michael and Sarah now know for certain,
there is a destination after death.
They also know they better find their way out of the afterlife fast,
before the devil claims Michael’s soul.
What they don’t know?
Before they can get to heaven…they may just have to go through hell.

Behold the cover of THE GHOST CHRONICLES 2!

It was designed by the fabulous S.P. McConnell!

And the pre-order for the ebook is up on Amazon!
