Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Excerpt and Giveaway Falling by Lisa Rigsbee

Published March 17th, 2013


After seventeen year-old Sophie’s mom dies in a tragic accident, she is so engulfed with guilt and sadness, she feels like she could literally, simply lie down and die. But a few months later, on the night she and her friends experiment with a Ouija board, things begin to change in unimaginable ways. Sophie begins to hear, and then see, Nick, a boy who has been dead for two years. This story tells of their blossoming friendship, young love, and how, through Nick, Sophie learns to live again. But even in the spirit world, happiness can’t last forever. There is a dark side to this otherworldly friendship. Not all spirits are good. Sophie’s dreams become haunting, scary nightmares. And soon these nightmares become reality, and lead Nick and Sophie into a battle against this evil spirit. They must fight for her life, but even if they can figure out how to fight a ghost, Sophie isn’t sure she wants to. If she dies, she could be with Nick forever.

FALLING grips emotions and keeps the reader turning pages late into the night.


Just then, the room got very cold. The hairs on the back of my arm stood, and my stomach sank. I saw a shadow pass quickly behind me in the mirror! I jumped and turned around quickly.

“Who are you? What do you want?” I pleaded.

Just then I felt pressure on my arms, like I was being scratched. I quickly pulled my sleeves up, and watched as red welts began to appear on my arms! I gasped and nearly screamed.

“Stop it! Who are you? Why are you doing this?”

I felt the same pressure on my stomach and my back. I pulled my shirt up, and saw the same red welts begin to appear. I was frozen with fear.

“Nick, please come back. Please, Nick!” I begged.I watched in horror as a thin line of blood began to appear on my stomach! The pain became intense. It was as though I was being sliced open.
