Earlier books in the series:

ghost handGhost Hand (The PSS Chronicles #1)
By Ripley Patton

Genre: Paranormal Thriller
Age category: Young Adult

Blurb:
Seventeen-year-old Olivia Black has a rare birth defect known as Psyche Sans Soma, or PSS. Instead of a right hand made of flesh and blood, she was born with a hand made of ethereal energy.

How does Olivia handle being the girl with the ghost hand? Well, she's a little bit morbid and a whole lot snarky.

Her mother thinks her obsession with death, black clothing, and the local cemetery is a bid for attention. But when Marcus, the new guy in Olivia's calculus class, stares at her like she's a freak, Olivia doesn't like it. And when her hand goes rogue, doing things she never imagined possible, Olivia finds herself running for her life with Marcus from a group of men bent on taking the power of her hand for their own nefarious purposes.

By Ripley Patton

Genre: Paranormal Thriller
Age category: Young Adult

Blurb:
Olivia Black is back.

Only this time she's not the one in need of rescue.

Samantha James, rich, popular, and an award-winning composer at age seventeen, is the next target on the CAMFers' list. In order to convince Samantha to come with them, Olivia and Passion must pose as cousins, blend into the most affluent high school in Indianapolis, and infiltrate a mysterious cult known as The Hold.

Olivia doesn't expect it to be easy, even with the PSS guys backing them up. But what she discovers over the course of the mission will call into question everything she ever believed about herself, her family, and especially about Marcus, the guy she is undoubtedly falling in love with.

Guest Post : Top 10, top 5 haunted destinations and top 5 scary books. 

Ripley's Top Five Haunted Destinations

First you need to understand that I love cemeteries just like Olivia Black, the main character in my PSS Chronicles Series. One of my favorite places to escape to for solitude as a teen was the hilltop graveyard in my small hometown. At night. My mother and brother were buried there, so I never really thought of the residents as scary. They were all just gone, and missed, and loved. In fact, I loved that cemetery so much I once took a first date there in college for a picnic on my favorite sarcophagus. There wasn't another date with him after that, but hey, I enjoyed myself. All this is to say, I don't fear the dead and I'd love to go to any of these places.

1: Highgate Cemetary, North London England. I love old cemeteries. Each marker is an untold story. Each tombstone a work of art and history. And supposedly, this cemetery has many haunts, including a 7-foot tall Highgate Vampire. He's tall, dark, and handsome, and I'd love to meet him.

2: The White House, Washington D.C. I've heard the White House is haunted by many of the past presidents and their wives. I'd love to meet Abe Lincoln's ghost and talk with him.

3: Hollwood's Roosevelt Hotel. Reported to be haunted by the rich and famous and probably the only way I'd ever get to meet any of them.

4: Hell Fire Club on Montpelier Hill, Ireland. Honestly, I just need an  excuse to go to Ireland

5: Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh, Scotland. Who wouldn't include an ancient castle in one of the most haunted cities on earth? Plus, men in kilts. Need I say more?

Ripley's Top Five Scary Books

I'll preface this list by saying, I'm not scared by many things that scare most people (see the comment about cemeteries above). And things that don't scare a lot of people, scare me to death. For example, I'm terrified of clowns. Absolutely terrified. So, here's my list.

1: It by Stephan King
2: Coraline by Neil Gaiman
3: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
4: The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris


5: Lord of the Flies by William Golding
