My guest today is K.C. Sprayberry. Hello! Welcome back to Writing in the Modern Age!
It’s such a pleasure to have you here again.
Can you tell us a little bit about your latest book? When did it come out? Where can
we get it?
Ghosties: Trouble to the Max is the first full-length novel in the Ghosties series. This is the story of why Hailey and Sly have to sneak around to take down Limbo in The Ghost Catcher. This story follows Hailey Hatmaker when she’s the leader of the intrepid, won’t ever give up until they conquer ghost Ghosties. They’re bad, they’re in charge, and they won’t let a little thing like the obstacles thrown up by the adults in their lives stop them from getting the job done.
Ghosties: Trouble to the Max came out on October 30, 2015 and is available through Amazon and CreateSpace.
I live in a small Southern town that has many inexplicable events. Are they paranormal or just the product of everyone knowing everyone else, what their families have done for decades, and tales of the improbable? Probably a little of both. Definitely the feeling I had when visiting my youngest son’s sixth grade classroom for the first time. There was an eeriness to the buildings, a sense of someone watching you, the feeling that there was a lot more to tell than the locals would admit. Hailey Hatmaker jumped into my head as a cool name for a main character, a teen with a penchant for hats and hunting down ghosts.
Well, let’s see. I’m going with Tiffany Thornton for Hailey. She has the looks and more importantly, the attitude to be the leader of this group of ghost hunters.
For Sly, I’ve always liked Emma Roberts. She is very Sly. Attitude and looks, a sensation she’d love playing a reluctant teen model who’d rather be ghost hunting.
Annie is the quiet, shy Ghostie, who is the best around when it comes to wielding the salt and lemon infused weapons where they have to cross the streams to conquer their ghosts. I see Ariana Grande and think Annie.
Tink is the guy dressed in black who swears he’s not Goth or Emo, just likes black. Kind of like Logan Lerman. Both definitely have the same outlook on life.
Freddie is the guy who’d rather go through than over or around an obstacle. Nothing stops him… much. I see Jake T. Austin playing Freddie and enjoying it.
I’m a hybrid. Some books I have to hold in my hand and turn the page. Others? They’re fun as an ebook.
