Welcome to November! We're moving out of the haunted season and into the holiday season, but the paranormal news just keeps coming.
1) The Bigfoot Crossroads of Nebraska Museum and Research center just got the state government's seal of approval, and a day declared in their honor.
3) The possible witch ball/Christmas ornament connection. I'm not saying there's a connection--as much as I think witch balls are interesting (and yes, we have a genuine witch ball from the 18th century in the museum), witches don't have a lock on ball-shaped objects. Also, the globe shaped ornaments seem to have originated in Germany in 1847. But it's an interesting theory.
4) There truly is a Tarot deck for everyone, and now, there's a Cthulu Dark Arts Tarot deck. I know this Tarot reader with a Lovecraft word of the day calendar. Think he'll be interested?
5) Is there a space-time anomaly in Georgia's Okenfenokee Swamp? I'm not sure I want to check that one out...
A Perfectly Proper Murder
When Maddie Kosloski’s career flatlines, she retreats to her wine country hometown for solace and cheap rent. Railroaded into managing the local paranormal museum, she’s certain the rumors of its haunting are greatly exaggerated. But then a fresh corpse in the museum embroils Maddie in murders past and present, making her wonder if a ghost could really be on the loose.
With her high school bully as one of the detectives in charge of the investigation, Maddie doubts justice will be served. When one of her best friends is arrested, she knows it won’t be. Maddie also grapples with ghost hunters, obsessed taxidermists, and the sexy motorcyclist next door as outside forces threaten. And as she juggles spectral shenanigans with the hunt for a killer, she discovers there truly is no place like home.
