Author Takeover with Molly Hall

I am so excited for this Author Takeover today. I am a huge fan of Molly Hall and when you read her book you will see why I love her and her book so much. So before I let Molly take over lets get to know more about her and her EPIC book Reckoning. Oh and make sure you read the whole post cause Molly has donated some awesome things for a giveaway.

"They say the truth can set you free. I found out it can kill you."


Seventeen-year-old Kat Matheson has never revealed the dark secret that sets her apart from everyone else: She can see and hear the dead. Until now, she has been able to ignore the strange apparitions and whispering voices. But it may not be that simple anymore. Haunted by eerie visions and increasingly frightening nightmares, Kat begins to fear she may be the target of a dark and ominous force from beyond the grave. Complicating matters is the arrival of her new neighbor, a young man she instinctively distrusts but is inexplicably drawn to. Gorgeous and mysterious, he seems to hold a disturbing knowledge of her long-held secrets.

As she desperately tries to maintain control, events take an unexpected and violent turn. Discovering that nothing is what it seems and that her psychic abilities may involve far more than just communing with the dead, Kat may be forced to confront her worst fears and the powerful curse that controls her destiny.

Guest post:

First, I have to give huge thanks to Sabrina for letting me takeover her blog for the day. This gal rocks! Second, when I began to plot this takeover, I thought, "Hmm, so many possibilities…which one do I choose?" I could write about my creative process, or a day in my writing life, or the music that served as the soundtrack to Reckoning. Or I could write a character POV, or the alternate ending to the story, or my Top 10 list. I could even go off the deep end and talk politics, publishing and pop culture. Please God, no! No worries, I haven't taken complete leave of my senses. (Although I would like to know how it was even possible for the Kardashians to become household names.)

After mulling it over, I decided it's really about the books. This is a book blog after all. So I will just tell you a little about myself, and the Dark Prophecy series. I'm also very excited to give you the PREMIERE sneak peak at book two! Titled Relentless, it is slated for release in the spring.

And now, a short bio on me—I am the author of the aforementioned Dark Prophecy series. The first book, Reckoning, was released in September 2012, and tells the story of Kat Matheson, a seventeen-year-old girl with the ability to see and hear the dead. This series will ultimately encompass four books. Mystery lovers take note—I also write an historic mystery series under the name M M Hall. Set in 1911 London, these novels feature Inspector Hargreaves, a man on a quest for the truth about his past. Look for Whispered Truth, the first in the series in the spring.

I've lived in Indiana, Texas, California and Colorado. I currently reside just outside of Denver. I pursued a degree in English Literature at Columbia College and worked in the dull mediocrity of the corporate world for several years before turning to writing full-time. I am a passionate lover of books, cats, British history, red wine, cemeteries, music and the unexplained. I'm also a study in contrasts—I love warm, sunny days, but I also adore rain and fog; I love bright, colorful gardens, but wear mostly black and navy; I'm devoted to both Linkin Park and Dvoräk; I love red wine and despise white; I'm fascinated by lizards and snakes, but run screaming from spiders; I love dawn and the rising sun, but am indifferent about sunsets. The list could go on, but this has to stop somewhere.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoy the teaser. Wishing you all the best, always!

SNEAK PEAK AT RELENTLESS:

     Without warning, the back of my neck prickles, the earlier feeling of being watched intensifying. Pulling away from Rick, I turn and glance cautiously toward the window. I don’t see anything, but my stomach tightens, and I draw in a quick, shaky breath.

     “What is it?” Rick asks in concern.

     “I don’t know,” I answer, trying to remain calm. “Probably nothing. I just have this weird feeling.”

     “Like what?”

     “I don’t know,” I say again, shrugging my shoulders. “Do you ever get the feeling you’re being watched?”

     Dropping his arms from around my waist, he quickly steps to the window, leaning over to look in both directions. “I don’t see anything,” he says, turning back to me. “I’ll go check out front.”

     I shake my head, feeling like I’m probably just overreacting. Then I freeze, my eyes widening in shock as an eerie blue glow begins spreading slowly across the window. My heart pounding, I creep forward, reaching out my hand. But instead of encountering the cool, solid sensation of glass, my fingertips keep going. Right through the glass. It feels like I’ve put my hand underneath a showerhead—pinpricks of water needling against my skin, driving hard between my fingers. I yank my hand back, too stunned to speak.

     I can hear Rick gasp behind me. I turn and look at him, speechless. His eyes are wide with shock. “How the hell…your fingers. They just disappeared. Like they went through the glass.”

     “I don’t…” I stammer, unable to find words. My hand feels cold and clammy.

     Rick grabs my hand, checking for cuts or injuries. “How was that even possible,” he mutters, staring at the smooth, unbroken skin of my hand then looking back up at the window. His eyes widen. “What is that?”

     I turn back to the window, wondering if he sees the same blue glow. He drops my hand and runs from the room, heading for the back door. Swearing underneath my breath, I race after him, trying to dart in front of him. But he’s already pushed open the screen door and stepped out to the patio.

     Every protective instinct I have rises to the surface. I reach for the door, and stop, too stunned to move as I gaze through the gauzy screen, into the yard. A wavering mass of blue light envelops the backyard, bathing it in a sickly luminescent glow. I move forward and push through the door, shuddering as a dull pressure begins mounting in my head.

     I must gasp or make some kind of noise because Rick turns and looks at me with concern. “Are you OK?”

     I nod, unable to stop staring at the strange light.

     “That is so weird. I could have sworn I saw something through the window,” he mutters. “But now…it’s just…”

     I look at him in surprise. Was I the only one who could see it? “The light,” I say. “It’s…can’t you see it?”

     He turns, looking in the direction of my outstretched hand. “I thought I did, back in your room. But now I don’t see anything. It’s just…kind of weird and wavy looking.” He rubs a hand across his eyes.

     My initial shock begins morphing into fear. Reaching for his hand, I interlace my fingers with his. He gasps, his eyes widening in surprise.

     “Whoa! Oh, my God!”

     “What?” I say, looking at him in confusion.

     “The light! I can see it. When you touched me…it just appeared!”

     I stare at him in shock then release his hand.

     “Wait…now it’s gone,” he says, his eyes searching for something he can no longer see. “Give me your hand.” His fingers wrap around my palm. “This is too weird,” he says, breathing out slowly, his voice tinged with awe. “What the hell is it?” He steps forward, extending his hand. 

     I hear a noise to my right, and Lovell leaps over the fence, sailing over the top in a single stride. Landing smoothly, he holds out an arm, blocking us from advancing any further. Rick looks at him in astonishment.

     The blue glow condenses and grows brighter, bathing us in an eerie neon light. Lovell shimmers in the glow, the odd illumination surrounding him with a silver aura. I can hear a thrumming, faint but distinct, like the sound a guitar string makes long after it’s been plucked, the hum resonating in the air.

     “What is it?” I whisper. I look around, trying to locate the source of the light and sound, but it's impossible. It's like it's hovering in the middle of the yard. No beginning, no ending. It’s just there. Within the center of the light, a mist begins to swirl, spreading gradually outwards. I can feel it, cold and damp against my skin. Panic grips me. Because, suddenly, I know. “It’s Aratus. He’s coming, isn’t he?” My heart hammers in my chest.

     Lovell shakes his head. “No,” he says, his eyes studying the light intently. "But he’s watching." He murmurs something in a language I can’t understand and the light abruptly disappears. He waves his hand and the mist drifts away, evaporating into the dark branches of the trees.

Thank you Molly for taking over my blog. Wow what a teaser from her book. I can't wait for it to release. Now for the EPIC giveaway Molly has donated to you all. Molly has donated 1 signed copy of Reckoning, 10 signed book marks, and 1 signed tote bag. To win answer this question: How would you handle seeing and hearing the dead?

Blood Therapy Blog Tour


I am so excited to be on this tour. Lynda writes a book that will leave you begging her for more. And I for one can not wait to get the rest of the books. So let's get to know more about Lynda and her books.

Lynda's books can be classified as urban fantasy/dark fantasy with romance, suspense/mystery, satire, horror, humor and sex.
Lynda Hilburn writes paranormal fiction. More specifically, she writes vampire books. After a childhood filled with invisible friends, sightings of dead relatives and a fascination with the occult, turning to the paranormal was a no-brainer. In her other reality, she makes her living as a psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, professional psychic/tarot reader, university instructor and workshop presenter. Her series, Kismet Knight, Vampire Psychologist is being rewritten and will be republished by Quercus Books in the UK and Europe, and by Sterling Publishing/Silver Oak in North America. The UK version of the first book in the series, "The Vampire Shrink" will be published September, 2011. The North American version a few months later. Book #2 (tentatively titled "Blood Therapy"), which is a new book, will be published a year later, and book #3 (the book that used to be called "Dark Harvest") will follow a year later. She also has a short story in the anthology, "Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance," called "Blood Song." "Diary of a Narcissistic Bloodsucker" and "Undead in the City" are available through Amazon.com and Smashwords

Stalker Links:


A sizzlingly sexy urban fantasy sure to feed the hunger of ravenous, vampire-loving fans.
Kismet Knight, a brainy Denver-based psychologist with a stalled career and a nonexistent love life, is about to have her world rocked. Not only does her newest patient, Midnight, long to become a vampire, but the teenager insists that a coven of the undead hangs out at a local goth club. The always-rational Kismet dismisses Midnight's claims as the delusions of an attention-starved girl—until bodies start turning up drained of blood and the hottest self-proclaimed vampire ever to walk the face of the earth enters her office.
What's real? What's not? As inexplicable events and romantic opportunities pile up, along with the corpses, Kismet finds herself in a whirlwind of passion, mystery, and danger. But this tough and funny heroine—who doesn't do damsel in distress—is about to turn the vampire-meets-girl convention on its head.

My Review:
I loved this book. It has been one of my favorite reads so far this year. I can’t wait to get the rest of the books in this series.

Kismet is a psychologist who leads a predictable life that is until a new patient comes to see claiming she wants to be a vampire. Kismet thinks she is lonely and looking for attention that is until she master the vampire of the city Devereux but even then Kismet doesn’t believe anything. But one night at Devereux’s club changes everything Kismet believes and soon she is thrown into a war brewing between vampires and being told she is the mate Devereux has been waiting for over a one hundred years. But Kismet is not your damsel in distress she meets every obstacle head on.

Anybody who knows me knows I love vampire books and this one did not disappoint me. Kismet is a strong heroine who I instantly connected to. However at times I wanted to smack her for doubting Devereux and the things she was seeing. Devereux is just dreamy and sexy. I loved him from the moment he walked into Kismet’s office. And the chemistry between them is HOT and steams up the pages. My only complaint is I wanted more Kismet and Devereux together.

With a plot that has so many twists and turns it will have you turning page after page to get to the very last one and have you begging for more. 5/5 Bloody Fangs  


Book Links:
    


Blood Therapy is a dark contemporary fantasy with humor, mystery, romance and adult situations.
Kismet Knight knows exactly how to handle her clients, but when it comes to her love-life, she's on less steady ground. That was until she met master vampire Devereux, an 800-year-old hunk, who not only managed to convince the entirely rational shrink that vampires really do exist - he also persuaded her to start dating him.
Kismet's still having nightmares after being kidnapped by Lucifer, a psychotic vampire. From a therapeutic perspective she finds his split personalities fascinating - but she's constantly terrified. And Dev's become obsessed with finding Lucifer - before he comes after Kismet again.
So much for her nice, ordinary life...

"YOU'LL SLEEP WITH THE LIGHTS ON AFTER READING GREGG OLSEN." --Allison Brennan

Ted Bundy. America's most notorious serial killer. For two women, he is the ultimate obsession. One is a cop whose sister may have been one of Bundy's victims. The other is a deranged groupie who corresponded with Bundy in prison--and raised her son to finish what Bundy started. To charm and seduce innocent girls. To kidnap and brutalize more women than any serial killer in history. And to lure one obsessed cop into a trap as sick and demented as Bundy himself. . .


Praise for Gregg Olsen's novels


"WICKEDLY CLEVER! TWISTED." --Lisa Gardner



"OLSEN WRITES RAPID-FIRE PAGE-TURNERS." --The Seattle Times



"GRABS YOU BY THE THROAT." --Kay Hooper

My Review:
Gregg has a way with using real facts and putting them in a fiction story that will leave you wanting to sleep with the lights on and double checking to make sure your doors and windows are all locked.

Grace is a Tacoma police detective who is on the hunt for a serial killer while at the same time trying to deal with the ghost of her dead sister who she never met and her parents believe was a victim of Ted Bundy. Grace grew up listening to stories about Ted and being quizzed about him when most kids are out playing and having fun. Grace knows she needs to bring closure to the victims of the murdered girls while trying to get the closure her mom so desperately needs.

I am not sure where I should start with this review except to say the Gregg has done it again. Only he can take true facts and twist them with fiction to write a terrifying page turner that will leave you scared but not wanting to stop reading until you know who did it. And Fear Collector is defiantly that book. After I was done reading late into the night to finish I got up to check all my locks and wishing I had read this book during the day instead of night at home by myself.

Get this book and read it but make sure you’re not staying up late into the night to finish it or home by yourself. 5/5 Bloody Fangs

Blindsighted Wanderer Blog Tour



E. C. Hibbs has lived all her life in Cheshire, north-west England. A lover of stories from an early age, she wrote her first 'book' when she was five, and throughout school was a frequent visitor to the younger classes to read her tales to the children.
Living so near the coast, she loves anything to do with the sea. She studied Animal Behaviour at university and longs to work with marine mammals in the future. As well as nature and animals, she also has a soft spot for history, and loves paying visits to castles, cathedrals and museums.
There are many things she could be without, but writing isn't one of them. She carries a pen everywhere, in case an idea appears, and takes pride in still seeing the world as brimming with magic. Besides writing, she reads obsessively, her favourite genres being the classics and all kinds of fantasy. She also enjoys Disney and horror films, practising Shotokan karate, drawing, archery, and playing with her very cheeky kitten.


Stalker Links:



The Wall has long kept Elitland Valley safe from the demons on the other side. For centuries the villagers have avoided speaking of the Wall or the creatures it protects them from.

Upon their return from the annual Country Fayre, the older Atego brothers learn of their father’s passing. When fifteen year old Silas Atego learns the mysterious illness that took his father might have been a curse from a demon, his need for answers draws him to the one place he must not go. The far side of the Wall.

When Silas is still missing days later, his older brother Raphael sets out on his own to bring him home. On his journey, Raphael learns how it was his ancestor who was cursed by a demon creature from the Lake and had the Wall built to keep them out. More desperate than ever to find his brother, his search draws Raphael to the same terrifying barrier.

Along the brothers’ individual travels they face their greatest fears, make lifelong friends, and more importantly, learn the truth of what happened centuries ago.

Blindsighted Wanderer is a tale about how truth and forgiveness will set you free. Where myths are transformed to legends that last a lifetime. The brothers leave their home as desperate boys but return to their family as honorable men.

Blindsighted Wanderer is a young adult fantasy, coming of age story appropriate for readers 12 +.

My Review:
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was so wrapped up in it that I forgot about everything going on around me until I was done reading.

 I could not put this book down. The world that E.C. has created is so fresh and new that it hooked me from page one.  With all the twists and turns I felt like I was in the book with the characters going through everything with them. It was so easy to get swept away in the plot and connect with the characters. The brothers are my favorite characters and enjoyed reading the journey they both go on.

This book is defiantly on my must read list again. 5/5 Bloody Fangs  

Buy Links:

This or That:
Night or Day?
I’m a night owl. Evening is my favourite time of the day and I can easily stay up all night reading or writing.

 Theater or Rent?
I prefer seeing movies on the big screen. I don’t go that often, but I love the experience.

 Fall or Summer?

Summer, without question. Everything is so colourful and it means I can spend loads of time outside. Autumn is my least favourite season.

 Music or Reading?

Tough one! But I’d probably have to say reading; I can’t go for very long without a book!

 Pet Dragon or Pet Gargoyle?
Definitely a dragon! I love dragons to pieces! I always wanted a pet one when I was little!

 Flip flops or Tennis shoes?

Tennis shoes, just because they’re more durable. I tend to pick shoes that will last me for a long time. Plus I love climbing trees and walking through woods, so flip flops aren’t best for that!

 Coffee or Tea?

I actually don’t like either of them! I’m not really a fan of hot drinks. But I like the smell of coffee and coffee chocolates, so I’ll pick that.
I wanna say Thank you to E.C. Hibbs for letting me review her book and Thank You to TTC and B2B for letting me participate in the blog tour. Don't forget to enter the giveaway.

Author Takeover with Daniele Lanzarotta

Today's Author Takeover is by an author who I love and adore. Her books have become some of my favorite reads. I devour them when they come out. I am talking about none other then Daniele Lanzarotta. But before I hand the blog over to Daniele lets get to know more about her. Also she has a giveaway planned so make sure you read all the way to the bottom. 

 Daniele Lanzarotta is the author of paranormal/fantasy novels, including the Imprinted Souls Series, Academy of the Fallen and upcoming A Mermaid's Curse.
She has a bachelor's in business and finance and a MBA. With only a few semesters left in school, Daniele started writing as a hobby, but it didn't take long for her to be consumed by her stories. That is her passion, and she now has several projects under way.
She enjoys reading and writing young adult novels with just about any sort of paranormal or supernatural bent...vampires... ghosts... She also enjoys watching hockey, playing rock band, guitar hero and spending time with the family.


Arianna always felt like she didn’t belong in the world where she was born. Ever since she was little, she used to hide behind the rocks in the sea, and watch the human family who spent their summers on that island. Over the years, there was nothing she wished more than to be like them, especially so she could get close to Blake, the human boy who she saw turn into a troubled teenager and then, an unhappy man.
Once her dad grew tired of her dreams and hopes for a reality that is not her own, Arianna is thrown into an arranged marriage, and her only way out of it is to make a deal with the power-hungry man who will give her everything that she has ever dreamed of. Dreams that turn into nightmares as she watches Blake’s world fall apart, because of her and Blake’s inability to control their desires for one another.

I will now hand the blog over to Daniele:
From YA to Adult
 
I want to start out by thanking Sabrina for letting me take over her awesome blog! 
 
To the readers who are new to my fictional worlds, I’m the author of two YA series, Academy of the Fallen and Imprinted Souls and I have an adult book (Insatiable – A Mermaid’s Curse) coming out this April.
 
Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions in relation to writing YA versus adult fiction and whether I prefer one over the other, so I thought I would answer a few of these questions right here!  
 
When I started writing Mermaid’s Curse, I honestly had no idea how the whole adult thing would turn out.  I have spent so much time focusing on YA characters that I was a bit nervous about writing from the POV from someone who is actually around my age. *Laughs* I was actually surprised with how fast I fell in love with the characters from Mermaid’s Curse. In fact, at one point I felt like I was cheating on my YA characters!  Anyway, I found that the biggest difference in writing adult vs. YA was that with adult fiction, I didn’t have to stop to think about whether something was appropriate or not for my target audience.  This ended up leading me to write about 2-4k words a day, when I usually write about 1500.  I couldn’t stop and I didn’t want it to end.
 
Does this mean I love writing adult more than YA?  Absolutely NOT!  I love writing them just the same.  With YA, I love being able to tell about a character’s first kiss, first love, etc.  There is something about how young adults react to certain things compared to adults.  They are more unpredictable.  They usually have less ‘grown up’ things to worry about and are often more passionate about making things happen and going after what they want.  Don’t get me wrong, a lot of adults do too, but they also think about the ‘what ifs’.   In a way, I tried to create a balance in A Mermaid’s Curse.  Arianna has that YA innocence and she experiences a lot of ‘firsts’.  Blake on the other hand always thinks about the consequences to his every action, at least when he is not around Arianna…. He tends to lose control when she is around.
 
For more about me and my books, you can find me at the links below.
 
As always, HAPPY READING!

Thank you so much Daniele for taking over my blog. I can't wait for A Mermaid's Curse to come out. Now for the giveaway.

Sugar & Spice Blog Tour

I am so excited to be part of this tour. I have read books by all three of these authors and loved them so when I got asked to be a part of this I jumped at the chance. So lets get know more about these books before I post a guest post with all three heroes and the giveaway.


Silence is golden. Honesty...not so much.

Gwen Palmer's saucy mouth gets in the way of her heart's desire...again. Just when she is about to trade her baker's hat for a nun's habit, she comes face to face with her idol, Ethan Reynolds.

Ethan isn't immune to Gwen's loose lips. Nor her quirkiness. And something about her smile tugs at his heart. Will he look beyond her outrageous remarks and see the truth inside? Or will Gwen lose her one chance at true love?

A gold locket catches her eye and her heart. Inside the tiny gold frame is a picture of the one man she compares all others to. The one that got away..

My Review:
The cover drew me in but the story hooked me and pulled at my heart and soul.

Sara is on vacation with her best friends. They go into an old antique shop and an old locket catches her attention. Inside there is an old photo of 2 people. The one of the man resembles Crew, Sara’s boyfriend from eight years ago who passed away. Sara has never gotten over him and dreams of him often. But one wish changes everything for Sara and what she thought was possible.

I loved this story so much. I could feel Sara’s heart break and love for Crew as if it was my own. Crew is just amazing I loved him from the minute we meet him. The time they got to spend together was bittersweet. If I was Sara I don’t know if I could say goodbye to my one true love all over again. Their goodbye had me in tears but the present Sara is left with is one of pure love.

My only complaint about this book is that it was a novella. I wanted more of Crew. Make sure you have tissue by you when your reading because you will need it. 5/5 Bloody Fangs 

Jonah McCabe made a horrible mistake six years ago that cost him his chance at happiness. Then fate interceded.

A last minute favor has him coming face to face with the past. Every beautiful inch of it. Her laughter still echoed in his mind. As did the pain in her voice the day she left.

Can he make things right in a race against the clock or will time continue to work against him?

Hero Guest Post:
Scene goal--how they each knew she was the one...

(Jonah) *clears throat* A chef, a musician, and a ghost walk into a bar...

(Ethan & Crew) *groaning*

(Ethan) Not that joke again. Don’t you have any new material?

(Crew) Stick with your day job, guitar boy.

(Jonah) Like you’ve never touched a guitar. *snorts*

(Crew) *folding arms and leaning back* Depends. Which day? Alive or dead?

(Ethan) I think I’ll just sit back and let you two battle this one out.

(Jonah) Why is that, cake boy? You too busy licking cupcakes?

(Crew) *slugging Jonah in the shoulder* Cake boy. I like that. Uh-oh. Cake boy looks like he might be about to dish something out.

(Ethan) Yeah, well you might want to put down your guitar and pick up a cookbook. Gwen is the baker, not me.

(Jonah) I’m no stranger to the kitchen. Trust me. You don’t grow up in the south without learning how to cook. So tell us about some of the, ahem, treats she provides you...

(Ethan) Hey, I’m a gentleman. I don’t kiss and tell.

(Jonah) *looks at Crew* She must be as sweet as her cupcakes.

(Crew) Gwen sweet? With that mouth? More like saucy.

(Ethan) Alright boys. Laugh and remark away, but it will only put off the inevitable and we’ll all start thinking you’re avoiding the reason we got here today.

(Crew) *glances at Jonah* Is he always this driven?

(Jonah) Could it be that we found the one person on the planet who hasn’t seen your show, Ethan? You gonna survive that one?

(Crew) Show? No, wait, don’t tell me. I don’t want to know and it probably hasn’t even hit the air where I’m from. But one thing you said certainly grabbed me. We’re all yours, Hollywood.

(Ethan) *rolling eyes, exasperated* Mine, huh? Well then, inquiring minds want to know--.

(Jonah) Yeah, yeah. We remember--What do we like in a woman? I say you start us off, Ethan.

(Ethan) She would have to be able to handle the lack of privacy in our relationship. I think that is the most difficult part. Knowing wherever you go, someone could be following your every move. Trust is also very important. I can’t tell you how many lies have been printed about me.

(Jonah) I’m not a stranger to being in the spotlight, but I get ya. Rumors suck for everyone.

(Ethan) *shakes head* So you know, Jonah, that it takes a very special woman to be with guys like us.

(Jonah) Yeah, I do. It's a kick in the teeth when you think you find her, then lose her. Second chances are rare. A woman who gives you one is more than a keeper. She’s your destiny.

(Ethan)  Well said my friend. I guess I got a little off track. What do I like in a woman? I want a woman who can make me laugh. Who isn’t afraid to be herself around me. Bad hair days and all. A woman who can look beyond the celebrity and see the real me.

(Jonah) Yeah. I hear ya. For me, it’s similar. I want a woman with a sense of humor. Who will laugh at my dumb jokes. Get mad when I do really dumb stuff, but who isn’t afraid to take a chance on me. And she loves music. She has to love music. I want someone I can melt with a song.

What about you, Crew. How did you know your girl was the one?

(Crew) *crosses arms, looks down a moment* There isn’t just one moment. Like the clouds parting and the angels hitting some perfect note.

More like something sneaking up on me, then lingering, then building and it wasn’t til she was gone that I knew all that went missing with her. Like I’d become whole and didn’t even know it til I found myself fragmented again. I still can’t forgive myself. I don’t know how Sara can.

I’ll be the last person to talk her out of it, though. And I’ll never let her go again. Never.

*silence*

(Ethan) You’re not gonna cry. Are you?

(Crew) *laughing* And end up in one of guitar boys songs? Hell no. That’s all you’ll get out of me.

(Jonah) Isn't there already a song about you, ghost boy? Unchained Melody? No, wait! I think some other ghost beat you to that song.

(Ethan) Okay boys, how about we settle this over a beer? You know that reminds me of a joke. A chef, a musician, and a ghost walk into a bar...
