Affairs of the Dead: Contest

Affairs of the Dead Contest

In Affairs of the Dead, if someone dies with unfinished business, their ghost sticks around until that business is taken care of. If it’s not, then the ghost turns into a deadly, rampaging monster. Needless to say, helping ghosts settle their affairs is a top priority. The main character, Selene, is a necromancer who has helped ghosts with unfinished business from skydiving to helping a ghost lose her virginity (it’s possible!). For this contest, AJ wants to read the craziest, funniest, most outrageous or creative unfinished business you can think of that would cause a ghost to stick around.

If I win, AJ will incorporate my entry into the sequel she's currently working on, which is tentatively titled Requiem for the Living. The prize will also include a $20 Amazon Gift Card, and Urban Fantasy ebooks from my publisher, Etopia Press.

My Idea:
A ghost can't rest in peace without finishing that book their friend loved and loaned them, but they never got around to reading. Then after they have to let the friend know what they thought. 

(Cheesy I know!)

So what did you think? Was my idea stupid? lol 


  1. If a ghost sticks around to finish reading a book, it must be a really great book! Fun idea =)

  2. Great contest, AJ. I'll play. A soldier is returning from (any) war with a last letter for the wife/sweetheart of a dying soldier buddy, but he himself is killed on the way. He still wants to see that the letter is delivered.

    1. Aww how sad! I love that idea. Thanks for participating Ally!
