One of those stories is an Apocrypha she wrote years ago, and posted on a board even she's not sure of anymore...
Ghostbusters Apocrypha: The Ties That Bind
Apocrypha Era Two
Janine need some new help--she's pregnant. Charlie Venkman just happens to be in town needing a new job. These two facts collide in a way that will bring to light an old tragedy that may prevent a new one.
The other story is actually a fairly important one in the lives of the future Ghostbusters (just three years away from being the "present day" Ghostbusters), now available directly on the Ectozone:
Ghostbusters 2024: A Different Kind Of Hero
2024--Timeline Year Forty-Two
The ever-logical Eden Spengler finds herself in unfamiliar territory when she meets a passionate young doctor. Like a Spengler a generation ago, she's torn between her strange new feelings and the safety of logic...and to top it off, not all of her teammates seem approving.

My GBN profile is now fourteen years old, incredibly moody, and blaming me for everything that goes wrong in its life.
Much like the world at large, the last year as a Ghosthead had been one of soaring highs and gutteral lows. And, truth to be told, for some of the same reasons.
More at the link, of course.

I'm not sure I can count the ways 2016 sucked donkey balls with teeth.
We lost so many talented people to the Other Side....from Glenn Frey to David Bowie to Prince to George Micheal to Carrie Fisher AND her mom Debbie Reynolds.
We lost John Glenn, a certified 100% American hero--the first American to orbit the Earth.
Through all of that was the lingering stench that perhaps more than any one thing that made 2016 nightmarishly awful:
To top it off, an archaic vestige of a system set up with Eighteenth Century communication technology in mind ensured that this jackass will be on our TV screens for the next four years EVEN THOUGH HE LOST THE FUCKING ELECTION BY ALMOST THREE MILLION FUCKING VOTES!!!
(Okay, Fritz, breathe...calm down...that's not good for your blood pressure...)
I mean, not to say 2016 was completely without awesome...
The IDW comic continues; I admit my enthusiasm has waned some, what with the end of Volume 2 practically shouting "NOTHING OF SIGNIFICANCE WILL REALLY HAPPEN TO ANYONE IN THIS SERIES BECAUSE SONY WON'T LET IT!!!" and the "Get Real" miniseries giving us a glimpse of the comic book I wish I was reading, even if it would also be hamstrung by Sony. But even then, Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening are giving us some solid Ghostbusting adventures, so I'm still in it for the long haul.
Have a safe and happy 2017, and hope we're all alive to see 2018.
