Join Kim Baccellia, author of the young adult fiction novel, Crossed Out (Lachesis Publishing), as she virtually tours the blogosphere in  second virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book!

About the book-

Crossed OutMeet Stephanie Stewart, a sixteen year old who has a gift for seeing spirits and encourages them to follow the light and crossover. Following the light can't be that hard, right? So why don't the dead just do it and leave her alone? However nothing is ever as simple as it should be, as Stephanie learns when her hidden 'gift' becomes more than a nuisance, quickly turning into a liability. If she can't learn to trust someone with her secret, the world as she knows it will go to hell. Literally. But if she doesn't choose wisely, she might just end up learning firsthand how hard it is to follow that light. Because she's next on the list to be crossed out.

About the Author- 
Kim Baccellia has always been a sucker for the paranormal. She blames it on her families’ love for such things such as having picnics at cemeteries, visiting psychics, and reading her mother’s copies of the daily horoscope. She even had her own horoscope column in middle school, which was a big hit! Kim’s other works include the poem, “My Father”, which appears in the anthology Mind Mutations, published by The Sun Rising Press. Her essay about the adoption of her son, Finally, Our Turn, appeared in Adoptive Families magazine. Her YA multicultural fantasy, Earrings of Ixtumea, is published by Virtual Tales and available now at Amazon. A member of SCBWI, Kim is currently writing the sequel to Crossed Out, her latest paranormal young adult fiction novel. She’s also putting the finishing touches on an upper MG fantasy No Goddesses Allowed. She lives in Southern California with her husband and son.You can visit her website at

My Thoughts-

I have always liked paranormal novels. The main character, Stephanie has bizarre powers, vivid dreams, typical teenage problems and ghosts that need her help. She has boy troubles and finds herself torn between Mark, the new boy in school and her friend Dylan. She is drawn to Mark and slowly realizes that there is something evil about him. Who will she choose and what happens to her?
The book reminded me of the Ghost Whisperer series where Melinda helps spirits crossover like Stephanie does. I really enjoyed the book and I cannot wait to read the sequel. So pick up a copy of the book. You will be glad you did.


Thanks for stopping by. I look forward in reading all of your great comments. Have a great day!
