|Margaret and Sharon|
Meet Sharon Ramirez, the author of Phantomology 101 and paranormal investigator. This is an amazing story of Sharon and her friend Margaret, who found a way to make Sharon's first book into a reality, as Sharon battles a serious illness.
I was introduced to Sharon in December through my friend Margaret, who manages Inspired Ghost Tracking. Margaret told me that Sharon wrote a book 2 years ago about the history of ghosts and ghost hunting, but was unable to publish it because Sharon had been battling cancer. Having now published 2 of my own books, I happily agreed to help out with edits, revisions and
the publishing process. So, I corresponded mostly with Margaret over the course of a couple of months to get photos and direction for the book as Sharon found it difficult to talk during her treatments. I did have some communication with Sharon directly until we got closer to publishing.
Sharon and I meet for the first time in person
After working back and forth with Margaret to get pictures and answers on formatting, and revisions, I was thrilled to see the proof copy of the book arrive. After going through the proof and making more revisions, the book was ready. The book was recently published through Createspace.com and is available on Amazon.com for $7.99. Sharon's dream of publishing her first book had come true thanks to Margaret's drive to help her friend.
A packed room for the book signing!
"Phantomology 101...Hunting The Haunted," includes a history of ghosts & ghost hunting to the modern day science of ghost hunting, what every paranormal investigator needs to know! It's available on Amazon.com: http://tinyurl.com/cbrpsoo
|Sharon celebrates her first book|
Last week, I attended Sharon's first book signing event and finally met her in person after months of working through Margaret and later with Sharon via text and email to make the book a reality. What a wonderful sight to see an entire room packed with supporters who bought Sharon's book and listened to her give a brief overview. Sharon was glowing and it was so rewarding to Margaret, me, her brother Rodney (who as also there) and so many others from Inspired Ghost Tracking.
