"Ambrose takes hold of readers from the first page, blending history and legend together seamlessly as she leads them through the plentiful spiritual landscape that is New Orleans. If you only read one book about the supernatural this fall, make it this one." - Chic Darling
From the Author
"Seeing a ghost in New Orleans is as common as having a bowl of gumbo. The question is not when, but where best to savor them both. Each person who lives or visits the city of New Orleans quickly finds their favorite haunts, which they return to time and time again." - Kala Ambrose
For more information, visit ExploreYourSpirit.com Kala Ambrose has seen and felt ghosts and restless spirits her entire life. Through her many experiences with the supernatural and paranormal realms, she has interacted with powerful beings of light, faced encounters with beings from the dark side and seen ghosts from every walk of life. Her new book Spirits of New Orleans shares historical information so that travelers can enjoy learning about the history of New Orleans while exploring the sites around the city in a unique way.
Join me on this magical mystery tour as I become your "Travel Guide to the Other Side". As your travel guide, I'll point out the history, mystery and legends of the city that you may have passed by before without knowing what lay in wait inside. I'll also share with you which ghosts are still actively haunting the city and why. By the end of this journey, you may also find yourself enchanted and charmed by the spirit of Louisiana and New Orleans.
For those of you who have never been to the city, I'm going to introduce you to the lady and beguile you into falling in love with her and for those of you have been to NOLA and haven't been back in a while, I'm going to help you fall in love all over again.
In my book, Spirits of New Orleans, we will explore the history of the city and those who decided to make it their eternal home as a resting place for some and a point of revenge for others. As the legendary Bette Davis once said, "Fasten your seatbelts, we're in for a bumpy ride" as we delve into voodoo curses, vampire legends, lost souls, and the "Cities of the Dead."
Once the romance of the city is fully in bloom, I'll be your guide into the dark side of the city, where ghosts haunt the streets and every corner. I'll show you where I've run into ghosts and other supernatural entities in broad daylight and on foggy nights and share with you some of the most haunted sites in the city.
At the end of this ride, you'll come away knowing a great deal about the history of New Orleans and her people as well as the ghosts who decided they never wanted to leave.

However, having said that, her historical accounts of the places she visited was very historically accurate. She definitely did her homework, despite her silly stories about the ghosts she met while visiting the site. She also has travel tips at the end of every chapter and I've found them to be quite useful. I'm going to take the book with me on vacation to reference the travel tips when I get there.
Don't buy this book for the "ghost stories" but if you're going to visit and are in the market for some accurate background information on the various sites and are looking for travel tips, then it's worth the money.
This book is a travel guide mixed with paranormal stories. I saw on her website that the author is a "Travel Guide to the Other Side" and that is certainly apparent in this book! I think anyone planning to visit NOLA would benefit from the author's expertise as she mentions that she grew up there. She also says she researched, not just depending on the stories we all hear about the places where we grew up. You get everything in this book from where (and WHEN) to try to see a "ghost" to interesting tidbits about famous people, (loved the one about Louis Armstrong), to personal safety tips.
The author is a psychic medium and that puts such an interesting spin on this super travel guide. I got mine on Kindle but if a person was planning on a visit, I would get the hard copy. I have a bunch of pages highlighted or bookmarked and I am not even going there!
