Ghosts and Graves Book Tour.






Today was a beautiful day in Sleepy Hollow, New York, where authors Jessica Verday and Michelle Zink stopped at the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery as part of their Ghosts and Graves Book Tour

The signing was in the cemetery behind Washington Irving's resting place.  A very fitting location.

Jessica Verday (l) and Michelle Zink (r)
Jessica and Michelle were very kind, friendly and funny.  They posed for pictures, chatted about other books and gave away some great prizes.  A few fans drove several hours to attend, the farthest being 4 hours away!  

Ironically, I met another book blogger who works nearby, The Serpentine Library.  It was nice to meet another book blogger in my area.  Check out her site!

I'm helping to celebrate their tour by giving away two (2) prize packs.  For more information about the Ghosts and Graves Book Tour, visit Jessica Verday's blog.  


The Sister's prize pack includes:

  • Guardian of the Gate bookmark
  • Rose candle votive, suitable for lighting your way through a cemetery.



The Hollow and the Haunted prize pack includes:

I definitely want to visit the Sleepy Hollow Cementary but it sucks that I live so down south that I can't make it to any of the events.

I would like to visit Paris’ Pere Lachaise or Venice's San Michele. The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery looks like a great spot for the signing!

I would love to visit The Hollywood Forever Cemetery. It would be interesting to see where so many famous people are buried, and having the Hollywood Sign visible would make it just a bit creepy.

I have visited a cemetery in NOLA and it was super creepy. Possibly because I was on the Ghost Tour at the time. That was enough for me. LOL
