"Spooky" Spotlight: The Next...plus a Halloween treat!

Happy Halloween! Today, we're featuring a ghost story. Get under your covers with your flashlights (and the treats you stashed away) for The Next by Stephanie Gangi. We have a copy for one lucky reader!

Is there a right way to die? If so, Joanna DeAngelis has it all wrong. She’s consumed by betrayal, spending her numbered days obsessing over Ned McGowan, her much younger ex, and watching him thrive in the spotlight with someone new, while she wastes away. She’s every woman scorned, fantasizing about revenge … except she’s out of time.

Joanna falls from her life, from the love of her daughters and devoted dog, into an otherworldly landscape, a bleak infinity she can’t escape until she rises up and returns and sets it right―makes Ned pay―so she can truly move on.

From the other side into right this minute, Jo embarks on a sexy, spiritual odyssey. As she travels beyond memory, beyond desire, she is transformed into a fierce female force of life, determined to know how to die, happily ever after.

"A profound and provocative page-turner about love and loss, revenge and redemption, this debut novel will stick with you for a long time. Stephanie Gangi is an instant, new favorite."
— Emily Giffin, bestselling author of Something Borrowed and First Comes Love.

Not too long ago, I saw a face in my back door. Certain times of the year it rains so much, I don't wash the glass as often as it can be dirty the next day. The face formed in the dirt along the bottom.

There have been several instances, but a friend of mine had a ghost, whose name she knew, in a house she lived in. He used to play pranks. At one point, and I was there when it happened, she had other people at the house and was telling them the stories and they were scoffing. She told him to swing the chandelier so they would believe her. And he did. It was awesome.

A ghost would show up in the form of a cat every year at our house when I was a little kid. They thought that this was a reincarnation of a relative long gone.

The best costume I've seen is the girl who went as a stay at home mom with a baby clinging on her leg and another one in her arms. So accurate!!
