Shona Booky Ramblings of a Neurotic Mom
Rip Cooper is 24, working as a photographer in a new town when he meets Serissa and his life changes. She comes to him in a dream and pushes him through his fear of the ghost he met as a child, past that, nudging his emotions until he’s ‘awakened’. Rip is one of the Seven.

Ripley is a ghost hunter or at least a ghost hunter to be.
It was a nice read even though a little bit short. It is the first installment of a series so I'm expecting to see a lot more in the next books.

This e-book is now permanently FREE on Smashwords. I usually refrain from rating my own books, but I decided to make an exception in this case -- because "free" makes everything wonderful.

"Touch" is the first of four novelettes contained in RIP: Choices After Death, which is available in paperback and as an e-book. So if you liked this one, be sure to follow Rip, Serissa, and Kalli in Choices After Death!

I loved this short story!I thought the storyline was good, and the pace fit it perfectly. I really enjoyed reading about ghosts and the twenty-four-year-old being one of the Seven. I thought that was interesting, so good job to the author.
