Well, we made it through Halloween! Touched by Darkness is doing well, and I’m gently nagging my readers to head on over to Amazon to leave their reviews. If you know me, you know my usual PSA…if you read a book, especially an indie book, it really helps to leave a review. Even a neutral one-liner helps. Amazon bases who sees your book on the number of reviews. The more is definitely the merrier! But I digress…
Submissions are slowly rolling in for the True Ghost Stories and Hauntings book. If you haven’t heard, I am putting together a collection of true encounters with the unexplained. Anyone who has had a paranormal experience of any kind is invited to share their experience (or experiences, send as many as you’d like) for consideration in the book. You can submit your story at my website, FromTheShadowsPublishing.com. Just click on the “Submit” button at the top of the page.
I’ve also begun plotting Book 5 in the From the Darkness series! (did I hear a “yay!” from the diehard fans sitting in the back??). This one will really get a little wild. Olivia, Tommy and Seth, all living in the same house? No spoilers for those of you who haven’t read the fourth book yet… but, wow.
Another book on the horizon is about a haunted house. It’s been tugging at me for a while, begging to be written. A unique twist, an intriguing why…and my own brand of darkness attached. If real life can chill for a bit (after the holidays, I’m sure), I’ll be adding that to my repertoire. All I need is time and a quiet house.
And the short stories! But that’s for another day.
As for the team’s investigations, well,…EVP’s should be posted to Sullivan Paranormal’s Facebook page in the next few weeks. We have a couple of sites lined up over the winter, weather permitting. I say that now, lol, but you know how things can change once the cold digs in. I’ll keep you updated.
Personal paranormal experience-wise, things have been ramping up a bit. Mainly at my boyfriend’s house (he’s got a ghost cat that I’ve felt jump up on the bed numerous times and last weekend I actually heard meow). Here, though…the other day, while putting things away in the kitchen, one of my cabinet doors swung shut. Yeah, yeah, you say. It can happen. Well, not here. Two cabinets were open and, as I stood about four feet away, one closed. I took it in for a moment or two, then went over and tried to recreate it. See if it could or would swing on its own, banged other cabinet doors, hit the counter, stomped my feet (none of which had happened, but I had to test various scenarios). Nothing I tried would do it, and, of course, I know my cabinets. I’ve lived in this house nearly 28 years and they just don’t move.
Well, it’s time to start my day. A lot to do, and maybe even some writing. 😉
