April 16th to 21st Blog Hop & Giveaway!!!

Today as a part of the Small Blogs, Big Dreams Blog Hop hosted by Forbidden Passions Reviews and Walking on Bookshelves I am hosting a review of Amador Lockdown written by my good friend Coral Russell along with the chance to win one of five ebook copies of this book!!!

Amador Lockdown Book Blurb:
Something has moved into the Amador Hotel. Hector, Marcos, Bev, and Tony of
the Paranormal Posse are called in to either debunk the haunting or get rid of whatever is causing the problems. With the surprise arrival of Hector's son, he tries to keep his professional and personal lives separate, but whatever is haunting the Amador Hotel has other plans.

Find out about the real ghost hunters and  the  Amador Hotel.

My review:
Do you like TV shows like Ghost Hunters? If you do you'll love this book! The Paranormal Posse are a Ghost Hunters-esque group who are called in to check out some suspicious happenings at the Amador Hotel. The Hotel is in the process of being restored and funny things are being reported. The Posse wants more time to investigate so makes an agreement with the Hotel's owners to host Ghost Tours at the Hotel. Just to make it a little more fun they decide to host a lock down on Halloween. And that's where everything goes wrong. 

This book is creepy and scary and has a wonderfully chilling ending. If you like a bit of chill with your thrill read Amador Lockdown!

  2. Thanks for having me and good luck to everyone! :)

  3. I actually have ghosts in my house. I've seen them and heard them. the only thing that really creeps me out is when they sneak up behind me.

  4. I have this book and can't wait to read it! Great hop stop!

  5. One time I woke up and I could hear someone whispering in my ear. Mind you, I was alone in my bed. I could feel their breath on me but i could not make out what was whispered. I know i was awake because i flew out of the bed and did not go back to sleep that night. it has never happened again, thank God. I just got creeped out thinking about it! Thanks for the giveaway.

  7. Oh, I LOVE anything with ghosts, paranormal, etc!! The Ghostliest Experience that I have ever had? I have actually had a few. A few nights after my Uncle Died, he appeared before me and asked me to forgive him some things that happened in the past. Another time a couple of weeks after my Grandma passed away, I was taking a bath and all of a sudden the scent of her perfume surrounded me - it was so strong that it was almost as if a bottle had been spilled near me. I have also had dreams that have come true and "felt" spirits around me.

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway!!

  8. These are some great ghost stories! Gives me chills. Coral thanks again - you are a doll!

  9. Just in case you don't see the reply on my blog, yes, my giveaway is international. You're definitely eligible. :)

  10. I've never really experienced anything remotely ghostly. I did think the second floor of my grandparents' house was kind of spooky.

    I've also done a few ghosts tours, including one in London.

  11. We hear strange noises in our home, and my daughter has seen a grey shadow pass by her room about
    Thanks for the chance twice a month or so.
    Thanks for the chance!

  12. When I was in my early teens, I was at this class party in one of the kids' house. Anyway, I was bored and ventured out - and I could swear I saw a semi-translucent boy in one of the trees (glowing in blue, no less). Thinking back, I'm pretty sure it was my very active imagination. Understand that I do not underestimate anyone's experience, I just think mine, specifically, was completely conjured from a 13 year old's overly developed imagination and has nothing to do with the world beyond.

  13. Thanks for the giveaway! You had me at Ghost Hunters LOL. The book sounds very interesting, too.

    I've never experienced anything ghostly before - at least not by my standard. My definition of 'ghostly experience' is that if you don't see it, then nothing's there. Simple and logical.

    However, I've had strange things happen around me. My sisters were spooked when they saw doppelgangers of each other at almost the same time - one in the living room and the other in their room. The rooms were on different floors. Then there's this time when my dad said that someone had pulled on his legs when he was sleeping. He slept alone. So many people had voted my room being the spookiest in the house and that they felt weird things there.

    I find it weird that almost everyone around me experienced all those, because let's face it, I'm the cowardly one among us. Really.

    So there. That's my (very long and not exactly ghostly) story. Ha. Thanks again for the giveaway!


  14. I'm also participating in this great blog hop! :) I'm making sure to visit each blog and become a follower - I hope you get a chance to stop by and become my follower as well:

  15. As for the ghostliest thing I've ever experienced... once I'm sure I saw my grandmother's ghost in her old house as we were cleaning it out for auction. It wasn't as scary as it was surprising.

  16. A BIG thank you to all who entered and especially to those who shared their ghostly encounters! There is sure some spooky stuff going on out there. I think I'm glad I haven't really experienced anything myself. It would probably scare the stuffing out of me!

    The lucky winners are being contacted via email. Please be sure to come back and visit often!

  17. And also a HUGE thank you to author Coral Russell who graciously donated her book for the prize!!!
