Ghosting in Charleston; The Five Amigos Halloween

sheryl halloween amigosI missed a fantastic couple of haunted history tours in town this week. Seriously, the photos they have been posting online have looked amazing! If you know me and have been following me, you know I love my paranormal research, stories and shows. The deceased dwelling amongst the living fascinates me.

Haunted homes have always been my favorite. When I speak of haunted homes, I don’t mean the kind that have people dressed up in it. I mean ones with spirits of those who have passed on inside. There are so many of these in the south where I live that it’s almost impossible to step into a historical home and it not be inhabited by someone that used to live there.

Weather you believe in spirits or not, the subject is fascinating to so many people and makes a fantastic subject for writers. I can think of no better person than Lori Robert’s book, Cries in the Night, to breathe life into a fiction book that seems so realistic. Carly and Austin Tabor experience the real deal in their newly purchased fixer upper home in Denver. From apparitions disrupting their daily living to objects moving on their own, the Taylors can’t seem to live a normal life.

To try and get down to the reasoning behind the hauntings, they delve into historical research and even hire a reliable medium, Delaney Warrick, to figure out the reasoning behind the disturbances from the spirits themselves. Often times, hauntings are caused lori-robertsby spirits attaching themselves to objects or even when their bodily remains are left on the premises. Could this be the issue with the Taylor’s home?

Cries in the Night is a book that is a must read for those who love the paranormal and history. As someone who has experienced many episodes with the paranormal, I can tell you that this piece of fiction hit the nail on the head for realism. It’s beautifully written, respectfully written and the characters are believable and relatable.

I really hope Mrs. Roberts plans to write a follow up to this because her writing in the Parastorical is next to none.

It’s This Amiga’s Party, Gonna Fall If I Want To!

sheryl

Nothing says “It’s Fall Folks” like group retreats, cooler weather and a good gathering around a fire pit.   Okay, well, if you are reading Vicki Fee, it might be a bunch of naked witches dancing around a fire pit, but who’s keeping up, right? It’s FALL guys and dolls!It's Your Party Cover

The best part of fall is the beginning of ghost hunting season. Yes, there is a season. Have you tried to book a tour at Waverly Hills lately? Good luck on that. If you don’t go out looking for the spirits of the dead, you should know that fall is when people usually think about it. There are so many places to go here in the Southern United States; abandoned buildings, old sanatoriums, historical buildings and don’t get me started on the amazing cemeteries. No need to wait for Halloween. Let fall begin! It’s Your Party, Die If You Want To encompasses all things Fall in my book (wasn’t that ingenious?), throws it into a nice mystery and achieves it so well for this southern gal.

Clue2Liv and Di live in the heart of Dixie and are getting ready for an amazing time together. From the first visit to a haunted cemetery to the ending with an interesting Clue game that ends with hunting down the murderer, Vicki keeps the reader engaged with well-rounded characters throughout the book. I couldn’t keep up with who was truly crazy and who was just acting the part.

Three is my favorite number so it’s no wonder that Vickie’s book ended up as my third pick for fall. Book your ghost hunt, murder mystery luncheon and take this book with you. Liv and Di will be like having your close friends traveling with you. Don’t do fall without them.  Click HERE to buy your own copy!
