Ghost Hold Coming September 30th


Ghost Hold release

IT IS FINALLY COMING SEPTEMBER 30TH, 2013.  The continuing and thrilling adventures of Olivia Black, her ghost hand, and the PSS crew. 

What did GHOST HOLD beta readers have to say about it?

“GREAT JOB! Really riveting story and very well told!”

“Reading this book is a true adventure. Now i’m ready for the third book. I loved it.”

“Overall, I enjoyed this book more than the first one, and I’m glad Ripley kept the consistency with the amount of action and information from the first book to the next. Can’t wait for more!!!”

Started and finished Ghost Hold today, it was that amazing! And that ending, Holy Crap Ripley, you’ve outdone yourself. I’m already impatient for the next book!

“BRAVO.  A GREAT book!  Better even than the first!  I abso-fucking-lutely LOVED IT!”



Advanced reader copies of GHOST HOLD are currently available in most e-book formats. If you’d like one, please e-mail me at ripleypatton(at)gmail(dot)com with a request for one. I look forward to hearing from you.


Please send me a link to your book blog or review site with your request.

Please schedule to blog and review about Ghost Hold in late September/early October during its launch. Any promotion through social media like Twitter and Facebook is also appreciated.

Please be aware that you are receiving an Advanced Reader Copy of an unreleased book. The file is not to be shared in any way, and please no spoilers.

Please note that I can’t send out ARCs to fans. Yes, I love my fans, and will occasionally run ARC giveaways on my website, but if I gave an ARC to every fan who wanted one, I wouldn’t sell any books. Thank you for your understanding.





Yes, it’s true. You can actually pre-order GHOST HOLD: BOOK TWO OF THE PSS CHRONICLES in both e-book and paperback formats now, three months before its September 2013 release.  But don’t delay, because this offer only lasts this month JUNE 1ST-JULY 1ST 2013.

How is this possible, when Amazon doesn’t let Indie Authors create a pre-order feature through them?

Thanks to the magic of KICKSTARTER, an extremely reliable crowdfunding site which allows me to put GHOST HOLD up for pre-order and simultaneously raise the funds to produce the book at the highest quality level possible.


Not sure about crowdfunding? Well, if you’ve read and loved GHOST HAND, that is exactly how the book was funded and produced. And every backer got the book they’d hoped for AND the satisfaction of knowing they’d helped make it a reality.

If you’ve been eagerly awaiting the SECOND BOOK IN THE PSS CHRONICLES, I encourage you to consider backing the GHOST HOLD Kickstarter Project today. Backing is very simple and only involves signing up with Kickstarter and having an active Amazon account (or creating one).


Backers were the first to see the new Ghost Hold Cover at its release on June 15th.

Backers of the project will also receive a sneak peek of chapter 1 (already released), chapter 2 (at $2000 mark) and chapter 3 (final goal $2,500) of Ghost Hold.


Well, it’s possible, but not probable. Last year, GHOST HAND obtained 110% of its funding, and GHOST HOLD is already ahead of the game in that regard. In only the first six days, GHOST HOLD is already 39% funded. Projects which are this funded this early, are 93% likely to make their goal.

But, if everyone assumes it will make it, or that other people will pledge so they don’t need to, it could fail.

If that happens, the publication of GHOST HOLD might be severely delayed as I seek out other ways to acquire the funds to do it right.

So, if you want GHOST HOLD as soon as possible, please back the project, even if only for a little, because every dollar counts.

Thank you so much for all your amazing support.

Ghost Hold

Yes, I now have the official blurb for Ghost Hold, book two of the PSS Chronicles. READ and ENOY!

Olivia Black is back.

Only this time she isn’t the one in need of rescue.

Samantha James, rich, popular, and an award-winning composer at age seventeen, is the next target on the CAMFers list. And in order to convince Samantha to come with them, Olivia and Passion must pose as cousins, blend into the most affluent high school in Indianapolis, and infiltrate a mysterious cult known as The Hold.

Olivia doesn’t expect it to be easy, even with the PSS guys backing them up. But what she discovers over the course of the mission will call into question everything she ever believed about herself, her ghost hand, and especially about Marcus, the guy she is undoubtedly falling in love with.

Be sure to let me know what you think, and don’t forget to ADD GHOST HOLD to your Goodreads TBR list HERE. 


Ripley Patton lives in a 22-foot camper in the woods of Southern Illinois with a cat named Lemmy. Her two young adult children, a daughter and a son, are her favorite people. When Ripley's not out exploring nature and getting her hands dirty, she's usually reading or writing a book.
