Catching Ghosts - Kathy Sprayberry's Latest Teen Release!

It's launch day today for Kathi Sprayberry's exciting new book The Ghost Catcher . Kathi Sprayberry is the most exciting new YA writer around. She has had two novels published just this year alone. So have a look, then buy her book! Here's her blurb The Ghost Catcher.

A gift to know when people are in trouble of the ghostly type puts Hailey Hatmaker in the middle of a major problem – one that winds up getting her into more hot water than she can handle. In true Hailey Hatmaker fashion, she dives into what turns out to be a battle with Limbo, her number one nemesis.

Can Hailey rescue two friends before it's too late? Or ish forever condemned to losing to Limbo?

Here's an excerpt of Kathi's The Ghost Catcher.

No adult in Landry, Georgia would ever admit a teen can do something right. Not a one, for then they would have to 'fess up to the teens being able to make their own decisions. The people in charge just plain ignored any good thing teens did.

Then I saw a problem, one I couldn't say a word about. All I could do is stand to one side and watch as disaster loomed.
I was the last person with Maren Dougless and Zac Morton Friday afternoon at the high school. What I saw of their auras – green with a black outer edge – scared me right down to my toes. As if that wasn't bad enough, since black represented death, and green meant vibrant life, in addition the center of those auras each had a reddish eye in the center with sickly yellow streaks arcing throughout it.
            That was more than enough to make any person run for the hills, but I'm Hailey Hatmaker, Ghost Catcher extraordinaire. After many, many years of catching ghosts, I didn't want two good friends to suffer that fate, but I had a big problem.

Kathi's Bio

Kathi is happily married to a man she met while in the Air Force. They will soon celebrate 20 years of marriage. Their teen, the youngest of 8, keeps them on their toes with his band activities. Writing is something she’s done since she was very young. At first, it was in a diary and then she poured all her energies into English compositions, earning praise from her Advanced Composition teacher in high school for an extremely visual project. While in the Air Force, she placed second in the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge's annual contest and from then on, was hooked. However, the reality of a military career and raising children forced her to put off attempting publication until they moved to Georgia. It was after the birth of their last son that she began taking courses through The Institute of Children's Literature, Long Ridge Writer's Group, and Writers Digest in an effort to make her life's dream come true.
They live in Northwest Georgia, in a small town, where she writes Romance, Westerns, Young Adult, and Middle Grade stories, both short and book length. More than a dozen of her short stories have appeared in magazines such as Listen Magazine, Brio, and The Pink Chameleon website. She also has two short stories in anthologies, Passionate Hearts Anthology and Mystery Times Ten. Her westerns have garnered interest by avid readers and appear on The Western Online and Frontier Tales.
Her work appears under the pen names of KC Sprayberry and Kathi Sprayberry. Softly Say Goodbye, a young adult novel, was her NaNoWriMo winning project for 2010. This story was inspired by a quote from a song and hearing of an auto wreck involving teens and drinking. 

So if that captures your fancy as I'm sure it has, you can buy her e-book at the following link:
