    Heck no! What did those ghosts ever do to me? Nothing I tell you! If my dad wants to slaughter wandering souls for a living then he can go right on ahead, I will pray for him lol. But just remember… we all die one day, he could end up a ghost too!

    lol this was fun

    Thank you for the giveaway!
    I'd love to have a hardback of this book ^_^
    Anyways, to answer the question: YES! I'd totally go and finish my father's job. I love ghosts and anything scary and it's an advanture ;)

    If my dad was a ghost killer, I'd MOST DEFINITELY follow in his footsteps! That sounds pretty awesome! Ghosts don't freak me out, unless they can do physical things to you like Anna can. *shudder*

    Thanks so much for the giveaway! I would definitely have to join my dad if he was a ghost killer! That sounds a great line at a bar! Although if the ghost was nice I would feel bad :( Oh well I would still do it!

    Probably not. I mean what have the ghost done to me? Although, if they do bother me, I wouldn't hesitate on getting rid of it! Thanks for the chance to win! I've really been wanting to read this for awhile.

    Um, no. I'm a wimp of epic proportions and would likely run screaming from anything that even remotely resembled a ghost never to return to where I saw said specter. Maybe if Cas was my partner I could work up a little backbone though, he's pretty delicious:)

    I cannot wait to read this book, it sounds sooo good!

    My annswer: Heck yes, but only if I don't have to kill innocent ghosts, which it doesn't sound like I would have to :P.

    Ghost killer sounds awfully close to vampire slayer in my mind, and since, despite the fact that Buffy felt that the job was cursed she still had a kickass time doing it, I think I WOULD follow in my dad's footsteps if he were a ghost killer.

    Thanks so much for this giveaway! I've heard awesome things about this book!

    It depends on the ghost I was expected to kill! If it was a kindly old lady ghost, maybe an ex-librarian or something, I don't think I could! But if it was a nasty old poltergeist type of ghost, then hell yeah!! I guess I'd have to learn a little bit more about the job before I could be sure:)

    For me it depends if the ghost wants to be killed or if it's an evil ghost. If the ghost really wants to move on then I probably will kill it. If it's evil and going around scaring or killing people or something then I will also kill it ;)

    Hmm, probably not. I can't really see myself hunting ghosts, even if they were real. ;)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    It would depend on the type of ghost/spirit it was. If it was an evil ghost, then heck yes, but if not, then no I would not.

    I really don't think so. The job sounds like you don't get much sleep, and I love to sleep.

    That's such a tough question :( It kind of test your loyalty to your own family member but I think I won't even consider following in his footsteps. I am my own self. I think murder is wrong so I won't follow in my father's footsteps even if he is who he is to me.

    I don't think I'd be following in dad's footsteps. I like the nice quiet life.

    If I thought ghosts actually existed, I would most likely follow in his footsteps since ghost hunting sounds more interesting then a regular day job.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway! =)

    Well, I think it would depend a lot on my relationship to my father and if he'd included me in his ghost hunting. If he had, plus we had a good relationship, I probably would follow in his footsteps.

    Chances are if my Father was a Ghost Killer he would train me to take over. So yes, I would follow.

    If my Dad had been a ghost hunter I probably would have followed in his footsteps because I had always been such a daddy's girl. :]

    November 5, 2011

    Do you mean would I kill ghosts or would I become a ghost and kill living things?

    Hmm… yes to the first, but only if they were harming people and only yes to the second if I were brutally murdered and wanted to exact revenge on the person or persons who did it.

    November 5, 2011

    No, I would not. That would just be too freaky for me. And that is assuming that growing up that way I would actually believe in ghosts. I would probably feel like I was disappointing my father, but not everything can be about what others want. Plus, a ghost would totally kick my butt.

    Hmmm I don't know. I haven't read the book so I dint really know what that entails. It sounds kind of scary! But I like kicking butt and taking names so I say yes! :)

    I'd like to think I was the kind of person who would, but honestly I don't think I could stomach it for very long. Also, I have six younger brothers, and I'm sure at least one of them would be thrilled to hunt ghosts for a living. I'd be sure to send him tips and monetary support when he needed it, though!

    Hmm well i would like to think i would be able to but i know me and i know that i will always believe that i can help everyone, so if they did exist i would probably be out there trying to help them move on

    Thanks so much

    Hahaha, no way. As some others have said, A) I have nothing against ghosts. Why would I hunt them? and B) Just thinking about doing that freaks me out waaaay too much. No ghost hunting for me. Sorry, Dad!

    Probably not. I didn't do anything related to my dad's job irl (he was a police man, I'm a costumer) so unless I was forced into it I don't think so.
