    I do believe in ghosts we all have souls thats what makes a person themselves, it only seems lodgical to me that after we die those souls are free to move on or stay behind and roam... or maybe thats just me lol :)

  2. I totally believe in ghosts. I think that sometimes people have unfinished business and can't/won't move on right away.

  4. Actually I totally believe in ghosts. Not in the way that they stalk you or haunt you, but I believe there are things in this world that can't be explained, and we will just have to wait to find out what happens.

    Awesome giveaway!

  5. Thanks for the interview and giveaway! I don't believe in ghosts as in the spirits of dead people who have remained, but I think there must be something to the phenomena that can be explained in other ways. We just don't know how yet. :)

  6. I admit I was sceptical until I lived in a apartment that I swear was haunted. It not only scared me, but I had 2 neighbors move because of it. I do believe there are ghosts.

  7. I do believe that the spirits of those who have died are still with us. If those are what we think of as ghosts, then I believe in ghosts.

  8. I don't know that I personally believe in ghosts, but I don't wholly discount them, either. I believe in their potential but that's as far as it goes for me.

  9. I've personally never had any experience with ghosts so I can't say either way.

  11. I totally believe in ghosts and sock gnomes. I think there are more gnomes than ghosts since my cabinets hardly rattle but I am always down to one sock in a pair after the dryer.

    Ohh the book looks awesome.

  16. what a fun interview! I had no idea that Tighter was a retelling of another book. And how cute is Adele!

    I believe in ghosts, but in a little different way than the conventional "haunting" type ghosts.

  17. I don't believe in ghosts, but that doesn't mean the idea of them doesn't completely creep me out! Just the thought of someone or something sitting around watching me while I think I am all alone gives me the shivers.

  20. I've never had any encounters with ghosts or lived anywhere possibly spooky/strange, so I'm neutral.

  21. I do believe in ghosts, which is kind of funny since I'm also such a logical, fact-finder, kind of person.
    But there's one thing I can't deny - there is such a thing as ghosts. Be a believer or not, you can't deny that there's a possibility they exist on some plane.

    *rambles on* lol

  32. I have a lot of trouble what that question. While I believe in things like the Holy Ghost, I don't believe that souls stick around after death. I believe that once you die, you end up in Heaven or Hell, no limbo of sorts.

    So, I suppose if I ever had a strange encounter, I would be duly freaked!

  34. Once I saw something that I could find no logical explaination for and I do think it might have been a ghost. So yes, I do believe in them.

    I most definitely believe in ghosts, my great grandmother's house was haunted and everyone that came into that house or spent anytime there was well aware of it.

  39. Thanks for hosting. I DO believe in ghosts, one lives in my house. One lived in my old house, and one lives in my daughters apartment building (he calls the elevator for her everyday). I think some people just aren't ready to leave and so they hang out and spend time with the living.

  40. Hm ... that's a tough question ... I suppose I believe in something ... I am just not sure what that something is. Ghosts can be ... entities, like full blown spirits of the dead, or shades or shadows or glimmers or memories - it's hard to say.

    In either case - I believe in something ghost-like. :)

    Thanks for the head's up and the contest! :)It's definitely looking like a cool book to check out!

  45. I do believe in ghosts. My mom had an experience when she was little and we grew up with her telling us the story. We had several odd experiences growing up at my grandmas house and it's a little creepy but I admit there are so many things that are unexplainable.
