Three Rules Of Ghosts

Ghosts can appear in three different forms and only these three forms.

1) They can appear to you as they died.
2) As they were right before what ever illness or accident caused their death.
3)They can appear to you the way they think they should look.

That is the basic rule of my new fantasy series, The Ghost Protector Trilogy.

When I started writing the series, I set up the rules because I believe that every world should have rules. What is the fun in reading a series or watching a movie where the rules keep changing to suit the narrative?

No, rules are important.

What I was not expecting was to find the rules actually gave me ideas later.

I'm working on book three now and I have a spirit that exists solely from these rules. I started thinking about the rules and came up with an idea for a spirit that hadn't occurred to me before.

I'm actually finding the rules are helping me be more creative. 

Who says rules are made to be broken?

(Book one of the trilogy will be out on December 25, 2015. Book two is being edited now and will be out in March 2016. I'm working on the final book of the trilogy now.)
