The second book in the Ghost Glimpser series by Melanie Wilderman is now available for purchase.  “The Ghost Glimpser:  Case #2, Cadence Price and the Arduous Assignment” can be found online at or the Kindle app for $2.99.

Melanie Wilderman, instructor of mass communication at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, brings to light a new challenge for Cadence Pride, the main character in her Ghost Glimpser book series, which requires her to help a child ghost reveal some deeply hidden secrets about his accidental death.

“The Ghost Glimpser: Case #2, Cadence Pride and the Arduous Assignment,” a juvenile fiction novel, was recently released at and for the Kindle, an electronic reading device.

“I am really excited because the release of the second book has sparked sales for the first book as well,” Wilderman said.

The Ghost Glimpser series follows the life of Cadence Pride who has a very special talent – she’s a Glimpser or someone who has the ability to see and talk to ghosts.

The target audience for this novel is ages 10-14. However, Wilderman said older teens and adults can enjoy the story as well.

Wilderman had a little help from her family when it came to creating the cover for her book.

“My brother-in-law Landon Satterfield and his friend Mason Kesner, both of Ft. Smith, Ark., did the artwork and photography for the book cover,” Wilderman said.

“My 13-year-old niece, Brinnlee Sweet of Pocola, is the model on that cover.”

Wilderman has worked with a few publishers, but will continue to assess the Kindle sales. After evaluating the Kindle sales, she may have the opportunity to sign a book deal for a traditional printing contract.

“Sales are going better than I expected, and I am doing most of my promotion via Facebook and my website,” Wilderman said.

“The Ghost Glimpser” series can be found on the Kindle or at for $2.99 by searching the site for Wilderman’s name or the book title. Also, free Kindle apps for various electronic devices can be found at
