October is Here!!!

October. The month of the BEST holiday EVER! Well, at least IMHO it is.

Halloween...Who doesn't LOVE a good ghost story? Scary costumes? Decorating the house to look CREEEEPY? All the great shows on TV this month?

Kat Harris, over at has posted an October contest for ghost stories. She has a really cool story posted if you'd like to check it out. I sent her my very own ghost story, you can read it here if you'd like, but be warned...IT'S SCARY AND TRUE!

Check out this picture taken at a castle in France by my friend and writing partner, Lisa.

COOL, huh?

I have already been to the Halloween store with my youngest girls, and they both want to be PIRATES! I swear I didn't prompt them, not at all. I'm probably more shocked than anybody about their choice in attire for trick or treating. It's always been Princess this or that (the three wearing crowns, MINUS the bloody neck, are mine). This year they want plastic swords! I'm PROUD.

I am going to try this month to post a few of my own ghost stories, so check back often. I think the black shadow from my bedroom (NOOOOOOOOO, this isn't gonna be one of THOSE x-rated stories, sorry) should be first, maybe my stay at a haunted hotel, perhaps my paranormal investigation with a REAL group of Ghost Busters to an abandoned hospital would be in order....there are so many to choose from. Should keep me busy!

Do any of you guys believe in ghosts? Yes, no, maybe? Enquiring minds wanna know!

I'm usually a skeptic, but I've actually experienced some scary stuff that I can't explain. So, yes, I believe in ghosts.

Can't wait to read your stories!

Of course I believe in ghosts! Here in Maine, where so many of the summer homes remain empty for long periods of time, spirits like to set up house while the owners are away.

My husband and I have been called to "de-bug" several places near us. Gremlins that live in the deep woods, or even unfortunates who've died at sea tend to be the ones inhabiting these properties. Most don't understand they're dead, others are just here to be disruptive and aren't nice. But after some persuading, they all leave.

I could go on and on about this subject, too. Always thrilling to hear of other's experiences with the other side.

Happy Haunting!


PS - Skeeter, you sound like a hoot!

I believe in life after death. I've never seen a ghost and am not sure I'd like to!
