Release Week for Marley Gibson!
We’re celebrating the arrival of Buzz Girl Marley Gibson’s TWO new releases this week. Ghost Huntress: The Guidance and The Other Side: A Teen’s Guide to Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal.
Marley has really tapped a nerve with all this ghost stuff. My little niece, who is eight, has loved everything to do with ghosts forever. When she was six she told my dad she wanted to be a ghost hunter when she grew up. He asked her what equipment she would need and she listed off all these magnetic reader things and flashlights and then… a plunger.
Dad was like, a plunger? But, he didn’t burst the kid’s dreams. Later, he was watching the show Ghost Hunters and he noticed that they were PLUMBERS for their day job. Hence, the plunger.
I’m buying Marley’s new book for my niece to enjoy. She’s just getting into reading, but anything with ghosts is bound to be irresistible.
And speaking of irresistible, have you met my friend Marley Gibson? She is one of the most positive, kind, funny, and sweet people I know. And her books are wonderful! I am so happy for Marley and her well-deserved success. She is amazing.
I hope you’ll pick up Marley’s books this week – and of courses, leave a comment to enter to win a copy of BOTH books!
Answer this… do you think children have a greater sensitivity to seeing ghosts?
Comment to enter!! Congratulations, Marley!!!
