Giving Thanks...

Many thanks to Heather for letting me slide into the Tuesday position instead of my regular Saturday posting. There's a method to the madness and it goes hand-in-hand with our blog theme this week...

I am giving massive thanks today for one very special reason...from Publisher's Marketplace:

Marley Gibson's GHOST HUNTRESS series, featuring a transplanted Chicago teen who begins to experience a psychic awakening, then forms a ragtag ghost hunting team to research and battle the belligerent ghosts in her historic Southern town, to Julia Richardson at Houghton Mifflin, in a very nice deal, in a three-book deal, by Deidre Knight of The Knight Agency (NA).
I am sooooooooooooo pleased to announce the sale of my new series and I can't wait to finish writing the books (I sold on proposal.) These books are very near and dear to me because, while doing extensive research for this series, I met some wonderful people and had some very interesting experiences while ghost hunting. Here are some of the pictures I snapped while out and about on my research:

(See all of the orbs?)

(See the whispy thing above her hand?)

(See the light anomaly on the right side of the mirror?)

So, what do you think of these pictures? Ghosts? Dust? Spirits? Lens flares?

The pictures don't show up on my end. But I'm curious to know:

1) How many books are in the series?

2) Did you come up with the name of the series or did they? Do you think they'll want to change it later?

Thanks for letting me know about the pictures. I just reposted.

To answer your questions...

1. There are three (3) books in the series to start, but I have lots of ideas for more stories.

2. I came up with the name of the series and the name of the books...everything. I don't think they'll change it because they really love it.

Congrats, Marley! I'm so excited for you. About the orbs... I think they're just "ghosts" in the machine. ;) Haha!

I am so excited for you, Marley. and very cool pics! As someone who has gotten a sneak peek at the first book in the series, I know it'll be a sure hit with teens!

Whoop whoop! Matt (my DH) says they're lens glares but I see! :) I also see how you were so successful selling this awesome series! YAY Marley! I am so excited for you and for all your achievements and those you will definitely experience in your future. You're a force to be reckoned with, like those ghosts!
