It's a combination book launch/intuitive reading session/birthday party with Austin-based fantasy author Victoria Laurie on the release of her newest title, What a Ghoul Wants. The seventh in her Ghost Hunter mystery series, What a Ghoul Wantsfollows M.J. Holliday, Laurie's psychic protagonist, and the crew of her television show Ghoul Getters as they unravel a mystery at Kidwella Castle in northern Wales. The castle is said to be haunted by an evil spirit, a ghost known as the Grimm Widow. The Widow does more than just scare the castle's visitors; she supposedly drowns them in the moat. As soon as M.J. and her crew arrive, the Widow takes two victims. Or does she? Laurie, who is both a New York Timesbest-selling author and a psychic, signs and reads from What a Ghoul Wants, after which she'll perform a few psychic readings for the audience and share birthday cupcakes.
