A Guide to Being DFF’s with a Ghost
1.Forgive the dead their wardrobe. They can’t help how they look and a makeover only happens after they move on. To be friends with someone who died a hundred years ago, you’ll have to accept them as they are.
2. Be prepared to share their death. There are few more intimate ways to get to know someone else than by reliving their murder. Don’t fight against this special bonding moment—instead go with the flow and hope you survive.
3. Bad skin is nothing like the odor of decay and the gooey mush that often accompanies a century-old murdered ghost. Be polite and don’t stare.
4. Parents are unable to see these ghostly apparitions, so if one decides to pay a visit by showing up in your refrigerator, don’t panic. Simply hold the door open and pretend to look for orange juice.
5. Communication is key. If you are unable to understand the often messed up message the dead are seeking to send you, consult your local medium. Often they can translate the moans, groans, and chain-rattling attempts the deceased friend is using to communicate with you.
6. Above all else, be accepting and patient. Ghosts are often exhausted by an effort to hang out with you. If they’re a bit too tired to hit the mall or see a movie, never fear, they’re always great fun at Halloween.
Kaylee Hensler might have not ended up convicted of grave robbery and arson had she followed the six rules above. As it was, she freaked out and ended up in court, sentenced to a reformatory for wayward girls. In Detour 2 Death, the third book in the Extreme Hauntings series, she’ll learn that not all dead things want to be Total DFF’s: Dead Friends Forever.
Thank you so much, Sarah, for hosting me on my blog tour. I’m so excited to see this book released and I really enjoyed this visit!
