Ghost hunters, reluctant psychics, a bully who’s scared of the dark, a medieval prince captivated by an ancient toy . . . These are the tales that keep us up at night, clutching the covers over our heads, desperate for dawn. Whether the stories within these pages prove to be real, imagined, or otherwise, our tales will captivate and delight your thrill-seeking heart. All proceeds from the sale of SPIRITED will be donated to 826 National, a program that offers free after-school tutoring, workshops, and in-schools programs because they believe that “strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.”
Haunted houses. Haunted hearts.
And a past that refuses to die.
Leap Books summoned best-selling paranormal and dreadfully talented debut authors to conjure up Spirited, a haunting collection of 13 tales guaranteed to keep you up all night.
Get entombed in stories of Egyptian treasures, shudder at tales of malevolent spirits, and become enthralled with the adventures of witch-hunters, ghost seekers, and lost souls. From steampunk to cyberpunk, our collection spans past, present, and future hauntings. One story actually leaps off the page with 3-D augmented reality.
With this celebration of things that go bump in the night, Spirited authors hope to slay the specter of illiteracy that plague our youth. All proceeds from Spirited will be donated to 826 National, a non-profit organization that offers free after-school tutoring, workshops, and in-school programs because “strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.”
Go ahead. Turn the page if you dare. We won’t tell if you sleep with the light on. Because after all, there’s no rest for the wicked.
