Things that say Boo . . in the night

Seriously is it really almost Monday already? I just had a wonderful week off . It’s really nice to be blessed with a job and an option to have vacation time!! So now is the down fault of it all! This is it is coming to an end! Well all good things must come to an end right? If you all love books like I do, then you most likely have a Goodreads account.  Goodreads.com is a great website where you can have your own online library of books. Where you keep record of all titles and reviews and suggestions.

Well not only do I have my own ,but I just recently started a group. Called Lady Voodoo & Hoodoo Reviews. Please join in , I really need some extra readers to help me out a little with suggestions and so forth.

The topic for today is Ghosts. I am currently started my very own investigation on the Paranormal world. It does really  make you want to know or understand what its really about. Where do we go when we die? Some have no beliefs when it comes to life after death or in life in general. But I’d like to think that we do have somewhere to go. This may be such a touchy subject for some. So please if someone does comment on the subject, lets not get bent out of shape over religion beliefs of it all .  Please do not misunderstand anything that I am saying . I am a very spiritual person myself. But I would like us all to just have an open talk about what you may think it’s all about”

For me I know for a fact we exists after we die! I totally believe this . I have had to many paranormal things occur in my like to deny this! Because of this desire I have to understand. I decided to take an online course with www.newageclass.com
. Paranormal Investigator Certification Course  in this course it not only talks about this Paranormal .But how we should have a healthy mentality prior to even doing this , It features fresh thinking and concepts that will not only educate, enrich, and balance you as a paranormal researcher, but will also enrich your life and relationships.   And so with studying has to some with some hands on right? Its only right . .I decided to start looking around for some haunted locations,. Because there really isn't to much going on at my house. So me and my 17 year old decided to go out to the local Cemeteries in town. We ventured out a couple times in the night time around 9 pm the first time. I have to tell ya that this girl was a little nervous about going to an open public place such as a cemetery so late. I kept having the thought of some weirdo hanging out there. This for some mental reason Was much more scarier to me then a spirit or dark entities. You never know what you’ll find out in the public. So I just thought it would be much better to go a little bit earlier then later. All in all the first visit we had was more about . Strange feelings and cold spots. In which in that case is to hard to determined in March or April.                                                                  
 
   So we then decided to just go back in the daytime the next day. And so we did and when we did I took the pic’s and discovered this!!
Look closely to this picture , you can see right off the bat that there is something glowing . But directly behind this thing is a tall gentleman with dark hair. Can you see the the two?  In that picture you can see this white faced phantom. But directly behind him that guy shocks the crap out of me. If you look closely can you see part of his front chest. You can see a shirt and tie . The tie is loosely undone.
Orbs There pretty funny to me only because I Orbs weren't much of a subject that is until digital cameras came about. Some call it Backscatter an that has everything to do with the lighting in dark places . That cause a reflection or something of this sort of reasoning . Or it can be paranormal? ? Mystery ?? This is why its paranormal and it can not be explained . Even though this is a touchy thing for me . I am still going to count it as something to watch and document for the time being .
Doing this just starts a flam in me to invest in some more knowledge of the Paranormal. So I gathered up some Non-Fiction Ghost stories.
                                                                                                                      
                              Ghost Under Foot
    The Spirit if Mary Bell (A True Story of one Family Haunting)
 
 

Weeks after settling into their new home in Fort Collins, Colorado, retired police officer Kenneth W. Harmon and his family make a chilling discovery: they're living with a ghost. This true haunting story begins during a ghost tour at the famous Stanley Hotel, where the Harmons experienced headaches and paranormal phenomena. Once back at home, strange rapping noises, eerie whispers captured on film, and unidentified figures in his photographs compel Ken to research the land's history. What he learns shocks everyone: in the backyard sits the unmarked grave of Mary Bell Wilson, a young woman who died of typhoid fever in the late 1880s. As his fixation grows, Ken uses a dowsing rod to communicate with Mary Bell's spirit and investigate her brief life. The spirit's surprising answers shed light on the nature of the spirit world and the mysteries of crossing over.

Their are a lot of Author's that I really love to read . There are some that only some of there work is good. Then there are some that hasn't let me down yet with everything that they produce. And one of them is Rhiannon Frater. A Hell of a writer, that is for the Horror World. Now I know that I am stating an opinion. But it is very true !
I would know that is all I read is Horror Genre. One of the best zombie books that I've read is  As the World Dies By Rhiannon Frater.

And so if your a die hard fan for her work like I. You will have to follow her to Watt Pad.com. For those of you that have no clue what Watt Pad is?
 I will explain to you with the best of my ability.
Watt Pad is a place where writers go ,  “they say it's one of the best place's to discover and share stories.” It's a YouTube for electronic text stories. Some say it's all unpublished Authors and that's a flat not true. When I just said Rhiannon is there and she is a published writer . The content includes work by unpublished and published writers.

Now Rhiannon has a  title ,that I wasn't aware of . She calls episode 1 . She will be producing new pieces every 2 weeks, I believe and other blogs are hosting it. I just enrolled in it so I can read it for free on my Nook. 
Here is a link:

                   The thing about cancer is it’s hard to prove somebody gave it to you on purpose—but Chloe Taylor can prove it. In fact, she proves it for a living. She sues oil refineries that would rather save a buck than comply with safety regulations designed to do important things like, you know, keep people alive.

Chloe had a successful career until circumstances forced her to move to the bass-ackwards town of Kettle, Texas (human population: 4,000; gun population: 34,356). Big Oil industry giant PetroPlex employs half of Kettle’s population, and there’s no question the judge in the town’s got oil stains on his hands. It’s no wonder she’s been on a losing streak lately. She suspects she’s been litigating on an uneven playing field, but when her star expert witness turns up dead less than 48 hours before a make-or break hearing, she knows.

What she doesn’t know is the key piece of information that got her expert killed. It turns out PetroPlex is harboring a shocking secret—one that has the potential to skyrocket gasoline prices, spark an energy market meltdown, and trigger riots, chaos, death, and destruction on a global scale. Chloe must discover the secret and expose the villains before she is permanently silenced, all while juggling a troublesome ex-fiancĂ© and a tantalizing new flame along the way.

Reviews

"I was skeptical about this novel. Would I really be able to get drawn in to a story about a band of renegades trying to save the world's food supply? Well, the short answer is yes. I was completely engrossed from the very beginning. Season of the Harvest is smart and funny and wild and frightening and really, really scarily believable." - Reviewer Elizabeth Schulenburg

"This novel is a delicious treat for those who like action and adventure. It is a science fiction novel that is at once contemporary and reminiscent of the great novels that have bejeweled the genre through the years. It is a cautionary tale that will haunt the reader, and invite us all to think twice about the simple decisions we make every day." - Author Dan Moore

"Season of the Harvest was smart, entertaining, and believable. If you enjoy your Sci-fi novels and/or thrillers check this book out and then hang on to the edge of your seat, because that is where you will be perched until you hit the last page!" - Moonlit Dreams

Good day my reader friends !! Yea it is Monday again and for some of us ,we wanna punch the first person we see in the am that states Hi Good Morning to you! Well I know at least I do anyhow.

Maggie Gallagher spends her nights with lots of men. Of course, they're all dead composers, but why nitpick? Her love life is just like the musical compositions she researches--undiscovered. It's time for Maggie to let loose and go wild. In a dive bar on Bourbon Street, Maggie makes a real find in the house band's keyboard player. He's hot. Sexy. Flirtatious. Soulful. And she could swear he's playing an unknown piece she's been researching, which is impossible, unless he's dead...

Centuries before he was a badass vampire with a rock-star wardrobe and Big Easy charm, Ren was Renauldo D'Antoni, a composer on the verge of great success until he was betrayed. No one could ever know that, but tonight, the shy strawberry blonde with the big eyes and obviously borrowed outfit actually seemed to recognize his long-lost composition. Now, she wants to know about the composition, and Ren wants to know her...intimately. But what starts as attraction--and distraction--just might lead to the biggest discovery of their lives

synopsis
                                                      
USA Today bestselling author Thea Harrison begins an all-new, darkly romantic paranormal saga, in which the fate of existence itself lies in the balance—and the key to victory may rest in the hands of two eternal lovers…

In the hospital ER where she works, Mary is used to chaos. But lately, every aspect of her life seems adrift. She’s feeling disconnected from herself. Voices appear in her head. And the vivid, disturbing dreams she’s had all her life are becoming more intense. Then she meets Michael. He’s handsome, enigmatic and knows more than he can say. In his company, she slowly remembers the truth about herself…

Thousands of years ago, there were eight of them. The one called the Deceiver came to destroy the world, and the other seven followed to stop him. Reincarnated over and over, they carry on—and Mary finds herself drawn into the battle once again. And the more she learns, the more she realizes that Michael will go to any lengths to destroy the Deceiver.

Then she remembers who killed her during her last life, nine hundred years ago…Michael.

 
  Good Reads synopsis:

Broken clocks tick...beds rise in the air...paintings fly across the room...locked doors fling open...crystal chandeliers shake...heavy footsteps and eerie piano music sound in the dead of night-and that's just for starters. Welcome to the Myrtles Long recognized as America's most haunted house both by parapsychologists and the media, The Myrtles is a twenty-eight-room Louisiana bed-and-breakfast once owned by Frances Kermeen. In this spine-tingling chronicle, Frances tells the story of how she was drawn to this former plantation mansion, its bone-chilling history, and the incredible encounters of the ghostly kind she had that forever changed her beliefs about the supernatural-and just may change yours. Along with the sometimes terrifying, sometimes benevolent hauntings, her years at The Myrtles also brought death threats from the Ku Klux Klan, the tragic loss of friends, a catastrophic betrayal, and other personal challenges. They would all converge with the paranormal phenomena around her into one cataclysmic event
Personally I started this book a couple days ago and I cant put it down. Love it ~ so far so perfect. . .
That's the ghost investigator in me

Friday Night Hunt



Blog Nation once again I have returned ,a Rebel with out a cause. Just kidding . .
Aren't we all ecstatic that its Friday. I would be right along with ya . If I didn't have to open the library tomorrow morning . But all in all I love what I do.
Something to talk about , let's say all my life . Since I can even remember as far back as possible. I always wanted to learn as much as I could about the paranormal. Be it ghosts, aliens, NJ Devil ,what ever. I wanted to know all about it. I can remember that this is one of the main reasons that got me in to reading. My very first chapter book was at my Nanny's house and the book belonged to my uncle .At that time lived at my Nana's house. There was a four year difference between the two of us. So he was more like my brother. But the book that I was reading was all about this demon. Back in the early 1900 the Governor of NJ( Walter Edge) stated  the demon . New Jerseys Official State Demon. Can you imagine a man of such a prestige, talking like that? I thought it was pretty neat.

In 1939, the New Jersey Devil was reportedly named the Official State Demon. Walter Edge, twice governor of the state, was quoted as saying: "When I was a boy. . . I was never threatened with the bogey man. . . we were threatened with the Jersey Devil, morning noon, and night." Periodic sightings and theories will probably continue for generations to come. Or at least until the Jersey Devil emerges from the mists of the Pine Barrens himself to tell us his own story.
Discussing all this leads to a title that I just finished .

The Day Satan Called : By Bill Scott

                                                                      5 Stars
                              
Bill Scott is this Rev who hosts a radio talk show . One so not so typical day he comes in to the station only to find his co-host Freaked out of his mind. When the co-host began to tell Bill that he just spoke to a demon . Bill wasn't to sure how to take that. I mean lets all be real about the situation . Wouldn't you think that this guy is just pulling your chain? Only to  find that the phone began to ring again. Bill of course hoped on that option to see just what exactly might really be going on!? When on the other end of that call was a 16 year old girl crying for someones help. . . .
I found this Non-fiction to be simply fascinating!
This is a true account coming from Bill Scott . About what he Indore those months . Back when a demon decided to walk in to his life. Now I bet there is plenty of controversy that is going to go on about such a subject. But I believe these things truly exists! This man Bill Scott went over and beyond to help this girl. To understand all that I am saying you must read this book. This girl calls his show and tells these Christians about this cult or Coven .  She is held prisoner in. About how these witches use her to breed babies . Just to have them sacrificed in there rituals. Can you imagine 16 years old , living is such horror. As a Christian you wanna save this girl . Read this book to find out the outcome for Bill and this poor young girl. Definitely give it 5 stars!




 Here is another title worth reading . Another true account of a haunting or of the Paranormal. This is a true story about a couple and a baby who moves in to a home that is wickedly haunted. This is their story.  
 Recently I decided to start my own investigating . So I chose a local cemetery and went there to see if I could find anything paranormal. Here is what I found, tell me can you see the apparition in the photo?
