It’s that time of the year when I revert to behaving like a five-year-old. It’s my birthday today, and unlike Hubby, I adore birthdays. I love cake, champagne and the excitement of opening cards.

This year, however, I have been so busy promoting How Not to Murder Your Grumpy and charging about all over the country, doing interviews that I didn’t have time to plan my birthday. I tried to book a last minute trip away but, of course, it is the height of Summer and our finances wouldn’t stretch to the hugely inflated price I was offered. Alas, Mr Grumpy has decided that it is better I haven’t organised anything declaring, “It’s only a day. What’s the big deal?” There are no presents. (Please feel free to sniff in sympathy with me at this point.) There is no cake. There is nothing planned for me. Oh dear!

So, to cheer myself up, I am going to go to an online Friendly Ghost Party for Melissa Bowersock’s latest release, Stones’ Ghost. I love ghost stories. The party is superbly planned. Check it out on Facebook by clicking the link HERE. There are ghost related photographs, terrific prizes and a virtual ghost buffet.

Matthew Stone doesn’t believe in ghosts … until he meets one. He owns a successful business in Lake Havasu, Arizona, home to the famed London Bridge that was brought over stone by stone and rebuilt over the Colorado River. He has a gorgeous girlfriend, a doting mother, and more money than he needs, but no time for stories about the ghosts who were transplanted from England with the famed bridge. When a chance encounter with a female ghost leads to unexpected friendship, Matt and the ghost are forced to rely on each other as they confront the pasts that haunt them.

You can buy a copy of Melissa’a latest release from Amazon UK, Amazon US or more details from her website.

Of course, it’s Friday, so I have to share some humour with you all. Have a great weekend and here is my Feel Good Friday Special selection of spooky jokes, just for Melissa:
