Affairs of the Dead Contest
In Affairs of the Dead, if someone dies with unfinished business, their ghost sticks around until that business is taken care of. If it’s not, then the ghost turns into a deadly, rampaging monster. Needless to say, helping ghosts settle their affairs is a top priority. The main character, Selene, is a necromancer who has helped ghosts with unfinished business from skydiving to helping a ghost lose her virginity (it’s possible!). For this contest, AJ wants to read the craziest, funniest, most outrageous or creative unfinished business you can think of that would cause a ghost to stick around.
If I win, AJ will incorporate my entry into the sequel she's currently working on, which is tentatively titled Requiem for the Living. The prize will also include a $20 Amazon Gift Card, and Urban Fantasy ebooks from her publisher, Etopia Press.

Necromancer Selene Vanream helps ghosts settle their affairs so they can move on. But when breaking the rules gets her in trouble, she's bumped down to tracking ghosts trying to avoid the afterlife. Ghosts like Ethan Lance, who claims he was kicked out of his body when someone else jumped in. Which might be plausible--if such a thing were possible. And if Micah, Selene's partner, didn't pull her into an investigation of brutal murders that lead directly back to Ethan.
But when the whole mess puts Selene's life in danger, she suddenly has very personal reasons to get Ethan's body back. Between her uncomfortable relationship with Micah, and problems with her boss, Selene learns just how much trouble it can be when you don't follow the rules...
