A paranormal conference at the most haunted hotel in the Blue Ridge Mountains goes haywire when ghost hunters accidentally stir up demons.


When Digger Wilson brings his paranormal team Spirit Seekers International to the White Horse Inn, he is skeptical that his dead wife will keep her half of the bargain. He doesn’t believe in ghosts, and just before she died, she promised to meet him there.

But when one of the conference guests channels a mysterious presence and an Ouija board spells out a pet phrase known only to Digger and his wife, his convictions are challenged.

And when guests start to disappear, Digger and his daughter Kendra must face the circle of demons that view the hotel as their personal playground. Because soon the inn will be closing for good, angels can’t be trusted, and demons don’t like to play alone . . .

Scott Nicholson is the author of bestselling thriller, mystery, and supernatural novels THE RED CHURCH, DRUMMER BOY, DISINTEGRATION, THE SKULL RING, AS I DIE LYING, and BURIAL TO FOLLOW, as well as the story collections THE FIRST, ASHES, GATEWAY DRUG, and FLOWERS.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Sadly, I just finished reading SPEED DATING WITH THE DEAD. The only reason that I say “sadly” is because I would have preferred another six or eight hundred pages of this novel!

I find Nicholson’s writing to be amazing…. His character development, his highly descriptive writing style (reminiscent of Peter Straub) and his ability to scare the hell out of me (reminiscent of another of my favorites, Bentley Little)!


On my definitely recommended to read list! If you are like me and love the paranormal, love ghosts, spirits, all of that, or if you like horror books, or if you just want something different to read, this is an excellent book to grab!


I’ve been reading Scott’s books for several years now (starting with The Red Church and going through every novel since (I just have The Drummer Boy left))and he just gets better and better. His stories are always intense and creative and Speed Dating With The Dead is no exception. The characters which fill the pages are as realistic as they are unique and each has their own motivation for attending the ghost hunt…motivations which, in some cases, are not what they seem. Scott does an amazing job bringing the story to life and drawing the reader in to experience everything that goes on (causing the reader to want to keep the light on all night!)

Give this ghost/haunting story a read, you won’t be disappointed – just make sure you aren’t sleeping alone…

About The Author

I live in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, and much of my fiction is based on mountain legends, local haunted places, and strange events. I was inspired by my grandmother’s storytelling, and have always written as long as I can remember. I also love art and music, and I’ve had the usual assortment of odd jobs: carpenter, dishwasher, sports card dealer, painter, radio announcer, journalist, and freelance editor.

My novels include the Kindle bestsellers Disintegration, The Red Church, Speed Dating with the Dead, and The Skull Ring, as well as eight other novels, including the urban fantasy Cursed! with J.R. Rain and the paranormal romance series October Girls. I’ve also created the comics Grave Conditions and DIRT and have written six screenplays, several of which are available on Kindle.

My web site has writing advice, fiction excerpts, art and samples from my comic books, my movie work, and numerous essays. I love to hear from people about my work, even if you don’t like it! My writing is a journey of faith and exploration, and I am always willing to tackle the big questions with an open mind and willing spirit. I believe we all have the opportunity to make this world a more beautiful, powerful, and peaceful place by embracing the mysteries and power of our hearts. I hope you’ll join me on the journey.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Scott Nicholson and ENT appreciate it.
