Ripley Patton Talks About Her Top Ten Ghosts- win a $10 Amazon Gift Card

Ripley Patton's Top Ten Ghosts
I have a confession to make. I'm a wuss when it comes to ghosts. Even though my books all have the word GHOST in the title, they aren't truly ghost stories but are more about what would happen if humans started evolving away from flesh and more toward spirit. Most ghost stories place the ghost in the role of the villain, but I tend to like my ghosts as the heroes, the comic relief, or in some cases, even the victim who needs rescuing. So, here's my list of Top Ten Ghosts.

1.       Casper the friendly Ghost.
2.       The Headless Horseman from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I always felt bad for him. Poor guy having to ride around looking for his head like that.

3.       Dr. Malcom Crow from The Sixth Sense (aka Bruce Willis). Such a nice ghost.
4.       Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars. Very helpful.
5.       Nearly Headless Nick from Harry Potter
6.       Slimer from Ghost Busters
7.       Loyd the Bartender from The Shining
8.       Ringwraiths from Lord of the Rings. Okay, they aren't nice, but they are cool.
9.       Helen from A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb (YA paranormal).
10.   Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake  (YA paranormal).

ghost handGhost Hand (The PSS Chronicles #1)

By Ripley Patton

Genre: Paranormal Thriller

Age category: Young Adult


Seventeen-year-old Olivia Black has a rare birth defect known as Psyche Sans Soma, or PSS. Instead of a right hand made of flesh and blood, she was born with a hand made of ethereal energy.

How does Olivia handle being the girl with the ghost hand? Well, she's a little bit morbid and a whole lot snarky.

Her mother thinks her obsession with death, black clothing, and the local cemetery is a bid for attention. But when Marcus, the new guy in Olivia's calculus class, stares at her like she's a freak, Olivia doesn't like it. And when her hand goes rogue, doing things she never imagined possible, Olivia finds herself running for her life with Marcus from a group of men bent on taking the power of her hand for their own nefarious purposes.

By Ripley Patton

Genre: Paranormal Thriller

Age category: Young Adult


Olivia Black is back.

Only this time she's not the one in need of rescue.

Samantha James, rich, popular, and an award-winning composer at age seventeen, is the next target on the CAMFers' list. In order to convince Samantha to come with them, Olivia and Passion must pose as cousins, blend into the most affluent high school in Indianapolis, and infiltrate a mysterious cult known as The Hold.

Olivia doesn't expect it to be easy, even with the PSS guys backing them up. But what she discovers over the course of the mission will call into question everything she ever believed about herself, her family, and especially about Marcus, the guy she is undoubtedly falling in love with.
