Not As Abandoned As It Appears

While Jeremy and I were staying in Peoria briefly last year, we got the chance to go down to Alton, Illinois for the evening for a talk by one of my favorite paranormal authors.

This Week’s Theme: Haunted Horror Film & Paranormal Investigation Festival

This week we are taking a break from my weekly theme of writing about different states’ haunted locations or urban legends to talk about the festival I went to last weekend. Why didn’t I write about it last week? Well, because life happened. After spending the weekend staying up late every night with investigations and watching scary movies, I needed a day or two to recover some of my spoons. While taking those recovery days, we finally got word that Jeremy can check out of his current command at the end of the month! Which means we will FINALLY be moving to San Diego as of November 1st! It’s finally happening!!! Between the plans we have this weekend celebrating Kelsey’s birthday and our friend, Mike, coming into town; and my trip to Salem, Mass. next week with my sister-in-law, Reba, I have very little time to prepare for this move. So I took the rest of the week to start preparing what I can for this move and to figure out how we are going to do this. Now that most of all that is taken care of, I can focus on writing again! Woohoo! Continue reading This Week’s Theme: Haunted Horror Film & Paranormal Investigation Festival

Today’s post is all about Wendigoes and their lore. Mainly because Jeremy and I may have encountered one a few weeks ago.  Continue reading Beware What Stalks The Woods…
