Young Adult Paranormal

After a summer spent in a haunted castle—a summer in which she traveled through time to solve a murder mystery—Kat is looking forward to a totally normal senior year at McTernan Academy. Then the ghost of a little girl appears and begs Kat for help, and more unquiet apparitions follow. All of them are terrified by the Dark One, and it soon becomes clear that that this evil force wants Kat dead.

Searching for help, Kat leaves school for the ancestral home she’s only just discovered. Her friend Evan, whose family is joined to her own by an arcane history, accompanies her. With the assistance of her eccentric great aunts and a loyal family ghost, Kat soon learns that she and Evan can only fix the present by traveling into the past.

As Kat and Evan make their way through nineteenth-century Vienna, the Dark One stalks them, and Kat must decide what she’s willing to sacrifice to save a ghost.

Re: The Girl Who Saved Ghosts

I like sequels especially when the author sticks to your
rules up there. However, I get a little crazy when it is
pretty much the exact plot as book 1 with different
characters. Then it's like they are writing their own fan
fiction in my opinion. Congratulations on the New release!
(Tanya Guthrie 4:10pm October 19, 2017)

I think that sequels are great, especially if they follow
your rules! However, I feel that a lot of times the girl
gets the guy in the first book and after that I become bored
with their relationship, so I like it when the author moves
onto two different characters.
Lindsey Postula 9:06pm October 19, 2017)

Tanya, thanks--I feel the same way. I don't like reboots. Of course there are
certain conventions to each genre but I want to be surprised and not know what's
coming next too! Thank you so much!
Kourtney Heintz 11:50pm October 19, 2017)

Thanks, Lyndsey. Especially in a romance, I think it's hard to keep that kind of
tension and excitement going when a couple is together.
Kourtney Heintz 11:52pm October 19, 2017)

I definitely enjoy series so sequels are great, tho I do like
the main points closed out for each book.
Susan Voss 11:22am October 21, 2017)

I enjoy sequels, I am invested in the characters from the
first book and enjoy seeing them again.
G. Bisbjerg 11:46am October 21, 2017)

Susan, I agree. Each book has to answer the main question raised in that book, but
also raise new questions that are answered in the next book.
Kourtney Heintz 6:34pm October 21, 2017)

G., I am a huge fan of sequels. I have only written series so far. I am not sure I
could let my characters go after one book. Possibly a future challenge?
Kourtney Heintz 6:35pm October 21, 2017)

I love paranormal, time-travel, science fiction and fantasy. Your book is right up my alley. Glad to meet you!
Sarah Edwards 11:26pm October 21, 2017)

I love sequels.I like to know a
characters life in depth.
Debby Creager 9:53am October 22, 2017)

I love sequels! When I get to know the characters, I always want to know
what happens next. I do like it better when each book completes one story
Jenny Solis 1:17pm October 22, 2017)

I generally like sequels especially if I really liked the
original and want to find out more about the characters.
Glenda Martillotti 11:00pm October 22, 2017)

Sarah, those are my favorite things too! Nice to meet you! :)
Kourtney Heintz 11:37pm October 22, 2017)

Debby, that's a fabulous reason! I agree--it's so nice to come back to a character.
Kourtney Heintz 11:38pm October 22, 2017)

Jenny, that's an important point about series. Each book has to be able to stand on
its own as a completed story. When I'm writing, I always feel like my characters
have so much more to reveal in the next book!
Kourtney Heintz 11:40pm October 22, 2017)

Glenda, you're right--characters are what keep readers coming back!
Kourtney Heintz 11:40pm October 22, 2017)

I do enjoy sequels as long as like you said everything
follows along and isn't the same thing over again
Linda Moffitt 1:05am October 24, 2017)

Yes, I enjoy series because it gives me a chance to find out more about characters introduced in the previous book. Also, it gives me a peek into what is happening in the lives of main characters previously introduced. The difficult part is having to wait for the next book.
Anna Speed 7:05am October 24, 2017)

Linda, I love sequels. But you're right I really don't like when it feels like a reboot of
Book 1. Thanks for stopping by!
Kourtney Heintz 11:12am October 24, 2017)

Anna, I love going deeper into the characters. The wait is tough. I try to give my
fans a one page synopsis of the previous book before the new one releases, just
to refresh their memories.
Kourtney Heintz 11:13am October 24, 2017)

I enjoy reading sequels to revisit the main characters and follow the plot development.
Bonnie H 11:21am October 24, 2017)

I love sequels as long as they follow your rules
Jean Benedict 2:00pm October 24, 2017)

Bonnie, great reasons! :) I like seeing what happens next after I've emotionally
invested in the characters.
Kourtney Heintz 11:59pm October 24, 2017)

Jean, thanks! :)
