First, Second, Third?

The second book in the Haunted Guesthouse series is going along nicely, and is almost halfway done--it's strange that I'll have handed it in before NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEED is released. I won't know what the reaction to the first book will be yet, and no doubt I'll be thinking about the third one by the time DEED has made its impact, or not. I'm hoping people will find the mix of mystery, ghosts and laughs enjoyable.

Meanwhile, the proposed title for the second book is AN UNINVITED GHOST. What do you think?

Nice to meet you!


This is the blogosphere home of E.J. Copperman, author of the Haunted Guesthouse Mystery series, starting in June 2010 with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEED from Berkley Prime Crime!

The series is about Alison Kerby, a newly divorced single mother who buys a great big Victorian on the Jersey shore (the beach, not the reality show) and renovates it to turn it into a guesthouse. It's NOT a B&B, Alison says, because she doesn't serve breakfast. It's just a B.

The only problem? Two ghosts are active in the house, and they won't leave Alison alone until she finds out who murdered them.
