  • Trucker Ghost Stories: And Other True Tales of Haunted Highways, Weird Encounters, and Legends of the Road

    These are true stories from the highways and byways of America. These first-hand accounts are as varied as the storytellers themselves—some are detailed and filled with the terror and suspense that made people feel they had to share what happened to them with others; others are brief and straightforward retellings of truly chilling events.

    I loved this book I wish there were more like it! These are peoples personal experiences and the stories are spooky but not gory or bloody which is great for me. The narrators did a good job in my opinion.

    Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it. Complication One: The artifacts are lost somewhere in vampire Jane Jameson’s occult bookshop. Complication Two: Her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, keeps turning up half-naked at the strangest times....

    Diana Turmenne says: "One of the best spin offs I have read!"

    If you could sum up A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, sweet, romantic!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the Half Moon Hollow setting and all the characters who live there. I'm glad Jane and all the gang we included in this story.

    What didn’t you like about Claudia Harris’s performance?

    I'm not sure if it was just her voice but she made the characters sound like they were angry all the time even when I'm pretty sure it wasnt written that way.

    In this book, Corey Taylor undertakes something never before attempted in the history of rock superstardom: he takes you with him as he journeys undercover through various ghostbusting groups who do their best to gather information and evidence about the existence of spirits. Taylor also gives you a behind-the-scenes tour of his crazy life and the many beyond-the-grave events he's encountered. (You'll be shocked how often Slipknot has been invaded by the supernatural).

    What did you love best about A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven?

    Corey Taylors personal experiences with ghosts.


    What about Corey Taylor’s performance did you like?

    His voice. He would be a great narrator for other authors books as well.

    Joy Randall's Top-five tips for vampire hunters: Location, location, location. Vampires won't be caught dead (ha!) in places like discos, 10-minute lube shops, or Switzerland. Remember, if you wouldn't be there, neither would a bloodsucker. Trust your eyes. You know the handsome, annoyingly arrogant, self-assured man in the shadows with long hair and a cleft in his chin? He's your vampire. No matter how tempting it might be, do not "accidentally" acquire a paper cut on your finger and suggest your vampire kiss it to make it better....

    What would have made A Girl's Guide to Vampires better?

    A smarter, more mature female lead. I read/listened to some immature, idiotic female characters before but Joy takes the cake.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Karen White?

    Emma Galvin or Kristine Hvam. They're both awesome.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was a fun story.


    Any additional comments?

    The best friend Roxy was also really annoying.
