OMG, you guys, I’m so excited to reveal my new cover for My Dad’s a Paranormal Investigator: Seeking Shapeshifters. As many of you know, this was the first book I EVER got published so it’s very close to my heart. So when my lovely publisher contacted me about giving it a makeover, I couldn’t resist. So I give to you, the new and improved cover:

BOOK BLURB FOR: My Dad’s a Paranormal Investigator: Seeking Shapeshifters

Sixteen year old Ima Berry (pronounced I’m a) leads anything but a normal life. For starters, the ridiculous name her eccentric dad gave her is always the opening for a good joke. Not to mention the fact he makes his living as a supernatural investigator, which has them moving around every few months. It’s hard to hang out with new friends when she spends all her time trying to prove the existence of Bigfoot, ghosts, fairies and any other number of paranormal creatures. Unfortunately, the cases always end in disaster. That is until now.

On a whim, Ima’s father decides to move them to Point Hope, Alaska. Here, he plans to investigate the possibility of shifters amongst the Inuit tribes. Ima isn’t thrilled with the move, until she meets an Inuit guy named Carsen. Not only is he hot, but he’s also a star basketball player, and he’s interested in her. Too bad his best friend, Talon, doesn’t like her and takes every opportunity he can to discourage the relationship. Ima has no idea what she’s done to make him mad, but there’s no denying the strange connection between them.

As things grow more serious with Carsen, Ima uncovers a secret about him and some of the residents of Point Hope. A secret that will force her to choose between her father’s already dwindling career and her new found love. And with the knowledge of this secret comes danger…a danger that could cost them their lives.

Personally, I think there are things in the world that (as Hamlet would say) “are in our philosophy.” Here’s my freaky story:

When I was in middle school/junior high, my family moved into this really, really old house. I remember our first night there. My sister and I shared a room at the time and it was right across the hall from the attic. At that time, the house had been gutted so there were slats in the wall where you could actually see into the attic. That night, when we tried to fall asleep, we heard footsteps coming from the attic. We totally freaked out. Then, through the slats we saw glowing red eyes peer out at us. Holy CRAP! I was so scared. We screamed for our dad.  He came upstairs, however, he said it must’ve been the taillights from a car. Um—that side of the house didn’t face the street and the attic was so long there’s no way you’d be able to see the lights that high up. To this day, I still don’t know what it was. But we used to hear footsteps in there all the time, until my parents turned it into a family room.

About a year or two later my parents had went into town to the store and left me in charge of my brother and sister. I was doing dishes in the kitchen, when I heard a knock on the side-porch door. I went to answer it, but no one was there. So I thought maybe I was hearing things. Once more, I went back to doing dishes and again, I heard a knock. Thinking someone was messing with me, I whipped open the door and checked outside, but no one was there. As I went inside, and shut the door I caught a reflection in the window of something standing behind me, but when I turned around, there was no one there.

A year after that, right before we moved my mom and I were downstairs doing some housework. My sister was upstairs playing in her room and my brother and dad had gone into town. All of a sudden, we heard my sister scream. She came racing downstairs and told us that someone had turned off her light and touched her leg. At first, my mom and I didn’t believe her. Then we heard footsteps run across the floor upstairs and the sound of a little kid laughing. FREAKIEST THING EVER!!!

What about you?
