THANKS FOR ALL THE MEMORIES...

I wanted to pass along my heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in the Blog Hop for A Ghost of a Chance. I cried, I laughed, I had my heart touched so many times over that last six weeks, I can't even begin to tell you what this has done for me. I now have the daunting task of putting together all the numbers and coming up with prize winners for the grand prize! I will be posting those winners on FB, Twitter, and here at my blog in the next day or so.

Anyway, thank you, thank you, thank you for making this such a wonderful experience, and keep in mind... in September we'll do it all over again with The Gladiator Prince. Minnette :o)

A GHOST OF A CHANCE - Excerpt
a paranormal romantic comedy
by Minnette Meador
RELEASE DATE: JUNE 22, 2011
Resplendence Publishing

Keenan Swanson is your typical, everyday graphic designer. Well, except for the hundreds of pesky, prank-loving poltergeists that make his life interesting (in a Chinese curse sort of way). He finds his situation precarious yet manageable—until witty, smoking-hot coworker Isabella enters the scene and Keenan decides he wants her all for himself. With a horny succubus who has other ideas, a burly city cop determined to lock Keenan away, and an evil entity who’s hell-bent on using Keenan’s seed to create a living demon, the reluctant psychic realizes he just might not come out of this alive—or with heart intact.

“Hysterical and very original!”
