A to Z Challenge - G is for Gangsta Ghost.


The A to Z Blogging Challenge is underway!
If you haven't heard of it, check out the A to Z blog and join in the fun.
Here at Untethered Realms, we're taking on the Challenge as a group. Each day, one of us will be sharing with you a teaser from one of our books.

George "Haw Shot" Hawley is a ghost with a lot of attitude.


The Rifters by M. Pax


5 Star Review from CHOOSE YOUR OWN END: "The Wild West meets Ghostbusters with some Stargate and a bit of Steampunk thrown in. Even though everything seems a bit familiar, it’s not, which is what makes The Rifters compelling"

  1. I like, and often respect, people with attitude so justice says I should extend that to ghosts too.
    And The Rifters has been lurking in my unread tower for tooooo long. Thank you for the 'subtle' nudge.

    1. When doing my research, I discovered it was common for heads to come off during hangings.

    1. The idea came from history. I researched hangings. Heads often came off.

  16. I tend to steer away from heads that don't stay on. Isn't there some rule that you can never be coming back again, a la reincarnation, if your head is separated from your body? Or is that only in Highlander?

    ReplyDelete
  17. There's the headless horseman. So it may only be Highlander and zombies.
