Romancing The Million $$$ Ghost by Heide AW Kaminski, Pam Ryan & Dorothy Thompson (Virtual Book Cover Reveal Event / Contest Giveaway)

In association with Pump Up Your Book! Virtual Book Publicity Tours, Jersey Girl Book Reviews is pleased to host the virtual book cover reveal event for Romancing The Million $$$ Ghost by authors Heide AW Kaminski, Pam Ryan & Dorothy Thompson!

Romancing The Million $$$ Ghost by Heide AW Kaminski, Pam Ryan & Dorothy Thompson
Book 1: The Spirit Seekers Series
Publication Release Date: October 2013

Book Description:

Eccentric tobacco tycoon Rodger Hawthorne III can have anything his heart desires except his dead wife, Sarah. Feeling responsible for the car crash that killed her twenty years earlier, he offers one million dollars to anyone who can find her spirit and bring it to him within one week or the money is forfeited. Six spiritually-challenged—but highly intuitive—women find his ad over the Internet and accept his challenge only to embark on a journey they didn’t quite expect that covers astral traveling, past life regressions and spiritual encounters of the unworldly kind. While this book is lightly based on a true story of a real man who is offering one million dollars to anyone who can prove that spirits exist, this story is purely fictional. Or is it?
