Moody & The Ghost - DEAD AHEAD - Discussion Questions for Book Club

Moody & The Ghost - DEAD AHEAD

Ghosts love Bryndle Moody. Until recently.
After a car accident that took her husband’s life and her eyesight, Youtube celebrity and paranormal investigator, Moody, finds she has also lost her ability to communicate with ghosts. When she mysteriously inherits a house on the Oregon Coast, Bryn and her team set out from her Seattle houseboat to investigate. The house has many surprises and as Bryn desperately tries to restore her clairvoyance, she discovers an elusive inhabitant with the ability to salvage her business and her reason for living. 
For a price.

This novel is a 4-5 hour read and is the first book in the Moody & The Ghost series, originally written as a TV pilot.

Moody is a paranormal investigator who has recently lost her sight in a tragic accident that took her husband's life and left a large scar across her face. After months of grieving, she's ready to pull up her big girl pants and get back to helping ghosts move on to the after world. But, it's not so easy. Her clairvoyance has left her and she's left with a big hole where she used to talk to ghosts. Until . . .



If you read this novel for your book club, and I hope you'll consider it, here are some questions I've written to get the discussion going.



1. Have you ever felt or seen a ghost?

2. Moody had an unusual childhood with her mother Rachel. In what ways does Bryndle show that despite Rachel's unorthodox upbringing of her, she still loves her mother?

3. How do you feel Eve and Carlos contribute to Bryndle's acceptance of her blindness?

4. What role do you think Joan Hightower will play in this ongoing story?

5. The author uses humor to detract from Bryndle's sad situation and gain sympathy from the reader. What's an example of where humor leads the reader to identify with Bryndle?

How to Write an Easy Book Review

Book Reviews,
Are hard to write,
Even for authors,

But...

Most Indie Authors count on reviews, the good reviews with lots of stars, to help them get out of bed in the morning and get to that laptop to write. Without validation, we are simpering, insecure, highly-imaginative slaves to the written word. We need lots of love and that means reviews. Also, Amazon rewards books with high reviews with advertising.
Not everyone is prolific on the page and that's why I often write blogs to help readers review.

If you like a book, write something nice for the author. Simple as that.

Here's some examples of perfectly fine reviews.

1. I just finished reading _____ and really enjoyed the book. The story was ______ and the characters were _______. I recommend this book to readers who like _________.

(Insert words like compelling, fun, interesting, very good, easy to identify with, well-written, Mysteries, Romance, Suspense, Supernatural, Y/A, Humor, Memoir)

2. This book is about _________ . I found the story _______ and would recommend it to other readers who like ___________

3. I was given a copy of this book to read in exchange for a fair review. ____________ is about a person who________ and needs_______. I found it a _______ book and enjoyed _______.


That's all you need to write and remember that 3 stars is a bad review to a writer. You might as well not review at all because a lack of reviews says something too.

ALSO, do not spoil the ending for anyone reading reviews to decide if they'd like the book. Spoilers in reviews are not nice.





After you write your review, copy it and paste on:

Amazon
Goodreads
Nook
Bookbub
KOBO

and anywhere else you might have seen the book, if you feel generous.

And THANK YOU from all the authors who write for you.
