Well, I’ve done the final (yes, you read that correctly!) proofread of Invitation to Darkness and my next post will be letting everyone know when it’s up on Amazon! I’m really excited to share it with you. We delve deeper into the history of the dark entity, and the person who set the ball rolling, bringing him into this realm. To give you a little taste of what’s to come, here is the blurb from the back of the book:
Joe Paine, deceased caretaker of Forest View Apartments, is lost. Alone. Screaming to be heard. Desperate to escape the fate imposed by the demon called Black. He finds himself beside the gravestone of James ‘J.P.’ Borden, a man who knew the entity all too well.
Amanda Harper is seeking a fresh start, away from the reminders of the brutal murder of her brother on their last paranormal investigation. She moves into an old Victorian house with a small family cemetery behind it. The Borden family, with one stone separate from the rest.
When the Ouija board Joe used, Black’s board, lands in her possession, Amanda knows she must find a way to send the demon back to his realm. Revoke the invitation that was extended so long ago. Can she survive confronting the entity on its own territory? Or is she be doomed?
I can’t wait to hear what you think of this ongoing saga. One thing you can help me with, though, is a title for the series itself. Any thoughts? I’d love to hear your suggestions. Oh, and is there a fourth book, you’re wondering? Well,…I already know how it ends. I just have to write the rest of it, lol.
As for Sullivan Paranormal, we are scheduling investigations. Covid-19 did put them off a bit, as it has everything else, but we’re getting there. In the next two to three weeks, we’ll be re-investigating a very active building. I’ll let you know where and what we find after the investigation is complete. We have a few other sights lining up that you’ll find very interesting, as well. Information to come soon.
The team is still waiting to show our evidence from a private investigation in January to the owners of the property. Although I can’t divulge where we were, the EVP’s we collected were astounding. It was our second investigation of the site and it seems the spirits are getting used to us being around as one of the clearest EVP’s says, “Merry Christmas from each of us.” I was surprised, too. Clear and quite a sentence to catch. Intelligent. I think one of the things that is especially helpful is that our team goes into every investigation with respect. We never taunt or provoke. I’m hopeful that we may be able to post some of the EVP’s on Sullivan Paranormal’s Facebook page. We’ll see. Along with that EVP, I left a voice recorder running at base camp. We were chatting and relaxing between sessions and there is a spirit, clearly heard, commenting on our equipment. Very cool. And yes, I’m sure we’ll be headed back there for a third investigation.
I know I said I’d update my “Ghostly Memoir,” and I have so many stories for you, but I’m exhausted. That will be my next post, along with the date you can get your copy of Invitation to Darkness. I may even post the sketch of my next painting. It’s a little different from what I’ve done in the past. You’ll have to let me know what you think!
Stay safe, stay well. Stay spooky!
