Paranormal Properties Book Trailer

 

 
Quick Bits
 

Synopsis: Jake Weir is not like the other kids in Dusk, North Carolina. Then again, Dusk, North Carolina is not like other cities. Known as one of the most haunted cities in America, behind Salem, Massachusetts and New Orleans, Louisiana, Dusk is ground zero for Jake's ghost hunting parents. The Weir family has arrived in Dusk eager to scope out some of the town's 127 reported "paranormal properties," which just happens to be the name of their own ghost hunting show: Paranormal Properties. What Jake doesn't know, and what his parents could never imagine, is that Jake can see ghosts! And hear them. And talk back to them! This talent comes in handy when he runs into Dusk's oldest, most famous ghost: one Frank Barrone, a one-time lounge singer made famous by his booze-soaked ballad, "Barroom Eyes." Frank was gunned down by a local mobster in 1951 and has been searching for his killer ever since. When he learns that Jake can see and hear him, Frank makes young Jake a deal: if Jake will help Frank find his killer, Frank will help his parents find a ghost to film for their upcoming Halloween Special on Public Access Channel #319. Jake enlists the only friend he's made in Dusk, an overweight tomboy nicknamed "Tank," to help him track down Frank's killer. As clues emerge and old leads heat up, Frank and Jake learn they make quite a team. But will Jake find Frank's killer? And will Frank find a real haunted house in time for Halloween?

The trailer for Paranormal Properties by Tracy Lane introduces her book targeting the YA audience. Young adults can really get into this trailer because it gives some great cinematics that make you want to learn more about the book and is really well made. It lets you know it is about ghost stories, but I think it does lack any information about the plot. What is the book about? Either way it was well made with music that got me engaged in the genre. I think teenagers will be willing to give it a try.

Is the book as good as the trailer? Based on the Goodreads reviews it may be better. Come take a look.

About Tracy Lane

Tracy was fascinated with the paranormal when I was very young. She always felt like someone was around her even when she was alone.
Tracy loved to write short stories in school and always wanted to be a writer. But raising children and working jobs She just could not find the time to indulge her passion. Then her children grew up and she ended having two teenagers at home who did not need as much attention from her. Tracy started toying with the idea of writing once again. So setting aside 5 to 10 minutes per day to write at least one page she thought she could end up with a book a year. Now Paranormal Properties is published and she has a list of 8 more books to write. Tracy says she doesn’t think she’ll be slowing down anytime soon.

Take a look at Tracy Lane’s website to find out more about her and her book.
