“Floor Song Tango” accepted to OUT OF TIME: TRUE PARANORMAL ENCOUNTERS!

Dad's House

My house from hell.

I’m thrilled to announce that my piece, “Floor Song Tango”—a short memoir about the powerful grip the haunted house I grew up in had on me for most of my life—has been accepted to and will be published in Timber Ghost Press’ upcoming anthology Out of Time: True Paranormal Encounters!

As painful as this was to write–talk about things you’d rather forget? Um, yeah–this was cathartic. I was finally able to get this place to stop haunting me and put it where it belongs: in the past.

I’ll keep you posted on the publication date, which will be later this year.

  1. That’s so cool. Congratulations, Kristi. There’s a YTer named Elizabeth Sagewood who grew up in a haunted house (or houses). She shared her story via videos. You can tell by the end of her series she was more self-assured about the whole thing . . . so yeah, cathartic.
