Ghost Memoirs

Disney After Death

by Guy Hutchinson | Release Date: January 6, 2019 | Availability: Print, Kindle

An E-Ticket for Eternity

When Walt Disney World cast members Slappy and Abe die in a car accident on the Irlo Bronson Highway, they come up short on a FastPass to heaven, and so with nothing better to do, they decide to spend their eternal after-lives as ghosts in Disney World.

In life, Slappy and Abe were slackers who couldn't get a date, forgot to pay the rent, and had just gotten fired as Disney cast members for riding Tower of Terror during work hours.

In death, nothing much changed. Stuck on earth, they resigned themselves to while away eternity in Disney World (with the occasional side trip to Universal). Until they met Jesus at their funeral. Jesus gave them a mission. Do it right, and they'd get bumped up to heaven.

So Slappy and Abe embark on an epic quest steeped in 1990s pop culture, backstage Disney, and a really bad movie about thumb wrestling, as they haunt the most morbid place on earth.

We're always in the market for new authors with great ideas. Or great authors with new ideas. Whichever type of author you are, we'd be happy to discuss your book. Before you contact us, however, please make sure you can answer "yes" to these threshold questions:

Is It Right for Us?

We specialize in books that have some connection to Disney or theme parks. Disney, of course, has become a broad topic, and encompasses not just theme parks and films but comic books, animation, and a big chunk of pop culture. Your book should fit into one (or more) of those broad categories.

Is It Going to Make Money?

There's never a guarantee that any book will make money, but certain types of books are less likely to do so than others. They include: hardcovers, books with color photos, and books that go on forever ("forever" as in 400+ pages). We won't automatically turn down these types of books, but you'll have to be a really good salesman to convince us.

Are You Great to Work With?

Writing books and publishing books should be fun. The last thing you want, and the last thing we want, is a contentious relationship. We work with authors who share our philosophy of no drama and zero attitude, and the desire for a respectful, realistic, mutually beneficial partnership.
