I’m so excited to have Dog-Gone Ghost Stories available again! (scroll down to yesterday’s post)
They all had to be retyped, since the “digital” version I had from 1995 was on big floppy disks (and were probably corrupt anyway.) Re-reading them was a pleasure, to remember the stories and the many people who shared them with me.
If you don’t have a Kindle, you can still buy a kindle book and download the app to read them free.
I’m working on getting Southern Vampires in print again. Here’s what a reviewer said about my first book:
A collection of 13 Southern folktales involving vampires of all sorts. From a charming lady who collects husbands, to a Texas family haunted by psychic vampires, to a vampire who “assists” the elderly, these tales are filled with Southern charm. This is a truly enjoyable collection of Southern folksy horror. Spooky and yet not grossly so. A charming way to spend a dark rainy night.
Just published on Kindle, second edition, with all-new full color illustrations by Kai Zweifel-Turner.
New Orleans, a Ghost, Ouija …What Could Be More Fun?
–from “Looking For The Light”
The planchette spun wildly, moving so rapidly my fingers could barely keep up. Finally it settled on the “yes.”
“Look for the light,” Mark whispered. The planchette shuddered and remained on “yes.”
“Can you see a light?” The lamp behind Madeline flickered and the bulb expired with a soft pop. I moved the planchette to its starting place.
“Can you see a light?”
The plastic triangle vibrated under my fingertips. The little light over the stove dimmed and went out. The planchette began to inch slowly to the left toward the word “no.”
“Look,” Mark said urgently. “Look all around. There must be a light!”
The planchette trembled again and stopped. The air was electric. My fingers felt cold, bloodless; I felt like I’d been hunched over the little triangle of plastic since the dawn of time.
…and 12 more spooky tales of canine capers, now available!
