Because I’ve received a lot of emails asking the same questions I thought I’d just answer them all in an article in case other readers are wondering but haven’t written to me about it.
How do I become a ghost hunter?
What I’d suggest is to check out the listing of paranormal investigative groups that I have posted on the site. They’re sorted by state and I’ve also included other countries. Try to find a group local to you and talk to them about becoming a member. Make sure they conduct legitimate investigations and aren’t a scam outfit. Ask if you can go on an investigation with them to see if you’re really going to like it or not. Then, after you’ve experienced an investigation first hand, you’ll be in a better place to make a decision as to whether or not this is something you’d like to continue to do.
How can I get a reading with you since you don’t do them through Examiner?
You can get a reading with my by visiting either www.MelissaA.com (my author website) or www.APsychicHaven.com (my psychic website). I’m running a special right now where you’ll receive one question free with any reading purchased. You can use this for yourself or give it to a friend. I’m also participating in the Bloggy Carnival at Bitten by Books this year where you can enter to win $100.00 worth of free readings with me.
Where do I buy your books?
You can purchase my books in both ebook and print from my publishers website. The print books are also available Amazon.com.
I have a picture I want to show you – will you look at it?
Of course I’ll look at it for you. Please consider that I get hundreds of emails a day from folks just like you who have questions so please don’t waste my time sending me an image that has obviously been altered to include a “ghost” just to try to trip me up. Especially if that “ghost” is the image of a well known statue, celebrity, etc. That’s really silly and if I see those, I’m not even going to respond anymore. Find something better to do with your time. 😉 If it’s a real photo then I’ll be happy to check it out for you. More often than not, orbs in photo’s are nothing more than dust particles. I’ve even seen rain that looks like an orb. Yes, sometimes they can be spirit but you have to rule out the dust first.
I want to write a book about my experiences – will you help me?
While I’d love to help everyone who has asked me this question, unfortunately, I just don’t have the time to help everyone learn the publishing industry and I can’t edit for you. I’d suggest reading books about the craft of writing and learning all you can about the publishing industry on your own. There are books out there that will tell you how to self-edit, how to find an agent, publisher or publicist. While I don’t want to burst anyone’s bubble, you have to realize that no one (unless it’s a celebrity with a ghostwriter) is going to get rich and have a bestseller with their first book. Publishing is a business and has to be treated like one. It’s hard work and proving yourself again and again that you can turn out a quality product that sells. I wish all the writers out there that have written to me the very best in their careers.
That’s it for now. I may add to this list in the future if I continue to get more repeat questions.
