Aisi Turay has it all under control. At least, she thinks she does. Forget that the most popular girl in school hates her guts and will stop at nothing to embarrass her. Forget that her little brother is tormented by the ghosts and demons she sees all the time. Forget that her mom is a con artist who pretends to be psychic to make some cash. Forget that her dad is hiding a secret than can destroy everything she knows about herself. Nope, she’s got this one…until that one awful day when she nearly loses it all. With ghost-hunting hottie Vance, a guy who stumbled into her life at the worst possible moment, Aisi must search for the messages hidden in visions and memories to protect her family. Maybe, just maybe, they can reclaim what she thought was lost forever.

So far, great reviews for Psyched!

This is one of those books you just can’t put down. What I love about Psyched in addition to a great, spooky story is strong characters and narrative voice. Aisi is the most awesome chick, strong-willed, sassy, and deals with some crazy stuff happening with a spunkiness that I loved…. Psyched is well-written, riveting, surprising and genre-busting. Teens will love this book, but it definitely has a more wide-ranging appeal.

Aisi Turay is one awesome girl. She has power to see the dead…as in their souls…This is a great read, filled with suspense. I NEVER knew from one chapter to the next what was happening. It is well written and a very enjoyable…and a bit scary!

Psyched is part ghost story, part suspense, part demon-hunting thriller, part budding romance.It’s the story of a girl named Aisi who’s doing her best to keep it together for her wreck of a family. She is smart, sassy, and sarcastic enough to keep things interesting. When she meets Vance on the single worst day of her life, she finds a guy who just might be the first person ever to get her, to believe in her, and to out-random her with bizarre observations at the worst possible moment. There’s just something about him that she knows she can trust.

Together, Aisi and Vance wander through the memories of others to unlock the secrets of her past while battling a demon who wants to ensure she never finds what she’s looking for. Aisi vanquishes demons all the time, but Malus Indolus is too strong. And he has plans for her…and her family.

Psyched is Juli’s second novel, the first as an indie writer, and her first experiment with her true love as a reader: paranormal fiction.


Juli Caldwell has been writing since she could hold a crayon. She always has stories, characters, and dialogue streaming through her head, so getting lost in her own head isn’t an entirely unpleasant experience. She is the mom of two avid book-a-holics and loves that her kids are old enough to beta read for her (and they are a bit brutal when they don’t like something!) She is also alpha-mom to a cute little pooch who likes to poop in her yard and thinks what he finds in the bathroom garbage can is the tastiest treat out there.

She is a writer, a lover, and a dreamer. She writes YA paranormal/fantasy books. Psyched is coming May 2013, with the sequel Freaked coming in 2014.
