Night Journey - Goldie Browning

Goldie Browning’s twisted imagination and fascination with the paranormal began in early childhood with her grandmother’s ghost stories and her brother’s retelling of classic fairy tales, such as Snow White and the Seven Little Frankensteins and Cinderacula. 
Her first and favorite job was as a secretary at a military mortuary in Germany, followed by more mundane employment which included being a newspaper reporter, a real estate agent, a substitute school teacher, and a legal secretary.  She finally settled down to a long career as a courtroom deputy clerk for two federal judges before retiring and getting to do what she wants to do when she grows up—be a writer.                        

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:  NIGHT JOURNEY – a ghostly tale of past lives that intersect with the present

Q.  What will e-readers like about your book?    
       I believe e-readers will like my book because it is fast-paced, exciting, scary, and romantic, all rolled up in one.  Night Journey is set at a real hotel in Arkansas purported to be the most haunted hotel in America, and was once the cancer hospital owned by real-life bad guy, Dr. Norman Baker.  Night Journey is a thrilling ride through time and back as heroine Emma Fuller has an accident, dies and is revived, but is left comatose.  While she’s in her coma, her soul is transported to 1938 where the spirits she’d heard about on the ghost tour are now real live people.  You’ll be turning the pages of your Kindle to find out what happens next.     

Q.  Why did you go indie?
            I’m so glad I went Indie, but I fought it for a long time, thinking I had to be published by The Big Guys.  I paid my dues, querying and collecting rejections and discovered that Night Journey didn’t fit into any of their niches.  The Big Guys don’t have time for books that don’t fit into their niches.  I’d just about given up after congestive heart failure almost got me, followed by a chain of other severe family illnesses.  Trying to sell your writing takes a lot of energy and I didn’t have any.  But then one day, out of the blue, one of my friends opened his own publishing company and asked me if he could publish Night Journey.  I’m so happy he asked me.       

Q.  Who are your favorite authors in your genre?  Lorelei Shannon, Erin Grady, Stephen King
